The Lord has the Final Say!
Jeremiah 5:22, Job 38:8-11, Psalm 33:7-9, Psalm 104:9, Proverb 8:29, Job 26:10-12
Death is inevitable, but life in Christ is Eternal (John 3:16). When the city is brawling and people are afraid; remember, what you need is God’s protection. Thus says the word of the Lord “unless the Lord guards a city. The watchman keeps awake in vain (Psalm 127:1). The Lord is able to protect for “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no enemy can withstand] (Psalm 91:1)”
It is appointed and destined for all men to die once and after this [comes certain] judgment (Hebrew 9:27); It will take ONLY the grace of God to disappoint such appointment; the Lord has the Final Say.
In the past when a woman dies, the tummy is bisected for the baby to be removed and buried differently from the mother. A day came when a woman died and out of anger she was buried with her baby. After a few days, people were hearing cries and behold the baby had been delivered inside the casket. To the people they were dead. You cannot bury one with Destiny if the Lord has not said so.
People miss it when they backslide as a result of lack of endurance, but for those who wait patiently for the Holy Ghost will be taught all things (John 14:26); though you may suffer, remember, those the Lord loves, He chastens (Hebrew 12:6-11). However, in the midst of the persecution, suffering, backbiting, the Holy Ghost will dust you and give you what to have to show forth; it isn’t about hard work. Do not worry about tomorrow for the day is enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34). Allow the Holy Ghost to take Charge!
It is our divine right to have children (Genesis 9:7); perhaps God wants you to be patient so that when your child comes, he/she will be 20 in 1. Our timing differs from one another. Sarah is an example (Genesis 18:1-14). The Lord has the Final Say.
There are people without patience, getting angry with God, doing that which may never be undone, depending on powers of darkness for help, the very moment you remove focus on God, your life is delayed and you function contrary to nature i.e. how it is meant to be for you (Romans 1:25-26). Until God says Yes! everything is No! You just need to talk to God, His Plan will never change (Numbers 23:19) but He is a prayer answering God (Matthew 7:7 and John 14:14). Permissive Will of God is not the Will of God and can be suicidal.
In every problem you are passing through or difficulty that seems beyond control, it is only God that has the final say. It is not given to the Devil to solve problems. He complicates life, so should in case you have gone for his help; you are only complicating the problem.
Should in case you backslide, do not give up; Arise! For the word to you in Micah 7:8 says “Do not rejoice over me O my enemy for though I fall, I will rise; though I sit in darkness, the Lord is a light for me”.
In whatever you do, remember it is the grace and power of God that gives you all (Colossians 1:16). Remember that whatever you do, so will another do unto you (Luke 6:31). God can forgive you and let you have the same experience to see how you will handle it. In every situation, predicament or problems/difficulties that you are facing, which may seem beyond control, remember! Neither the Devil, principalities nor power but the Lord has the final say (Colossians 2:10).
When you have a problem, do not allow emotions to take over. “When my daughter died, I could have woken her as I did to other people but emotion took over me”. When you allow emotions, the spirit of God is no longer effective. Man has the ability to change the world. You can curse a generation and they remain cursed but you need to understand how it works and be right standing with God.
If the Devil can change situations, he could have changed that of Job. Satan was asked to not touch Job’s life but he attempted to touch it (Job 2:6-7). When the agreement with God and the Devil with regards to Job was nullified, the Devil was not informed. God went ahead and blessed Job (Job 42:12-17) because He has the final say.
Do not judge the unmarried because you are privileged to have a husband; for when their time comes, theirs might be 10 times better (Romans 12:15). Do not judge anyone’s situation because God has the final say. If you are free today (e.g. no sickness) does not mean you cannot be in trouble tomorrow. The truth being that God has the final say, you must be in His good record for Him to do something good for you (Revelation 20:12).
Do not use your talent which is a privilege to suppress another. A Pastor depended on his wife for interpretation whenever he preached and one day the wife refused to interpret his message because they quarreled. The Pastor shed tears, in his pain, God asked him to go and he went. On stage, he was preaching in his local dialect when he burst into speaking good English. The wife was shocked and since that day he never needed an interpreter. The Lord has the final say. Nothing starts and ends on you because you are not God. So whosoever that feels he is a god to you, is making a mistake for God is a jealous God (Exodus 34:14).
God looked at Moses, even when He made Moses a god over Aaron; He made Aaron a Priest over Moses (Exodus 28:1). No matter how big a man is, he is not the Almighty God. Do not wait for a man to help you, for even the man is waiting on help, himself.
When the spirit of God comes upon you, he shall make all things new and teach you all things (John 14:26, Luke 4:18-19). Search your heart to find out where you may have gone astray or disbelieved God because of your numerous problems and make amends for God is the only Solution.
Sing unto the Lord a joyful song and praise His Holy name for the Lord is good (Psalm 96:1, Psalm 13:6). You should not sing to entertain the crowd. Song is praise unto God. When it is from the heart, you can sing and dance stupidly, to men you may not seem normal but to God your praise is accepted.
Preach the truth and not to talk about God to please men. The Lord has the final say and even the Pastor cannot stop your miracle. Jabez’s mother cursed him but the curse could not stand (1 chronicle 4:9-10) because God did not allow it. The bible says that a causeless curse shall not stand (Proverbs 26:2).
No matter the difficulty, talk to God for He sets the pace. He commanded the water not to pass its boundaries (Jeremiah 5:22). The Devil therefore cannot go beyond his limits. God is the One that doeth all things and He is not man to lie (Numbers 23:19). The Devil and principalities can say whatever they like but the Lord has the Final Say.
No matter how you see it, Jacob’s children were meant to betray their brother, Joseph. That was God’s plan so that through Joseph the Israelites would go to Egypt. The father tried to change that plan by showing love to Joseph. Prior, God had shown Abraham how the children of Israelites would suffer in Egypt; and if Joseph had not been sold, this plan would not have happened. Despite the plan of God for Joseph, He allowed him to be tested for the glory to come. Some of us never endure the trials. God can sanction what is happening for us to be tried and tested.
While in Prison, Joseph depended on a man to present his case before the King that he was innocent but was disappointed (Genesis 40:22-23). However, when the day of the Lord came, favor was granted unto Joseph (Genesis 41:14-49).
We do not believe God and that is why the problem elongates. Whether you are cursed, always remember you are not a mistake. God sets the pace and is with you.
God made you and has kept you alive, it can’t be by mistake. The only problem is that you trust Him less and rely more on your abilities (Romans 1:25).
The bible makes it clear that the Holy Ghost will teach you all things and make you remember (John 14:26), that means He will show you the business you can do, will help, comfort, advocate and intercede for you.
You may have made a mistake, but no matter the trouble you are passing through, there is always a solution. God has seen it and allowed it for Him to be praised. Don’t allow emotion or the earth to control you. It does not matter the darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto you (Micah 7:8).
Jeremiah 5:22 says ‘Do you not fear me?’ says the Lord. ‘Do you not tremble in My presence? For I have placed the sand as a boundary for the sea, An eternal decree and a perpetual barrier beyond which it cannot pass. Though the waves toss and break, yet they cannot prevail; Though the waves and billows roar, yet they cannot cross over’.
God sets the pace, no matter what is happening, if the Lord says your time is not up, it is not up. Some are without hands but have made so much money. It does not matter what people call you. As long as God has not assigned those names to you, they are not yours. Joseph was called a slave but to God he was a champion. With God all things are possible (Matthew 19:26).
Psalm 33:7-9 says ‘He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast. Death has no permission over you (1 Corinthians 15:55). Can the creature be bigger than the Creator (Romans 1:25-26). Everything that was made was made by Him and all are obedient to Him (Colossians 1:16).
Psalm 104:9 says “You set a boundary that they may not cross, so that they will not return to cover the earth”. At this point, a firm boundary has been set for those difficulties that they never again cover your life.
Pray: Before the prayer below, should in case you are not born again or you want to return to Christ. Say! Lord Jesus I come before you a sinner, I believe You died for me and resurrected on the third day, I repent of all my sins, forgive me and cancel my name from the book of death and write it in the book of life. Thank you for saving me. Now Pray!
Father! Since you have the final say, look into my situations and undo them. Give me that which is accrued unto me and bless me beyond the eyes of men. For eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the hearts of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him (1 Corinthians 2:9).
In Jesus name, Amen!
