Luke 1:45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Have you genuinely believed what the Lord has told you? Have you genuinely trusted in His ability and integrity to do what He said He will do? Those things you believed will be done.
God told Abraham, “I have made you a father of many nations.”
All circumstances surrounding Abraham's life were contrary to the promise of God for him. But Abraham hoped against hope that he would be a father of many nations and it came to pass. He ended up as the father of many nations, because he was fully persuaded that God is able to perform His promises in his life.
You cannot make yourself a father or a mother, talk less of a father of many nations, but you can trust God to make you so. The enemies succeeded in casting Daniel into the den of lions amidst jubilation that they had gotten rid of their enemy. Daniel trusted in the Lord for his safety and the Lord delivered him from the mouth of lions.
The Lord has not changed and cannot change. He will deliver you from the mouth of those lions surrounding you if only you can trust in the Lord for it.
When Daniel's enemies were in turn thrown into the den of lions, they had not reached the bottom when the lions pounced on them from the air, tearing them to pieces.
Sennacherib, the king of Assyria sent Rabshakeh to threaten Jerusalem and King Hezekiah. He said, among other words, “Let not the Lord whom you trust deceive you that Sennacherib will not conquer Jerusalem.” King Hezekiah said, “Trust in the Lord your God. With him is the arm of the flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to save us.”
The people put their trust in God and the Lord through prophet Isaiah told Hezekiah, “The King of Assyria shall not come into Jerusalem. He shall not shoot an arrow into it. By the way that he came, by the same way he shall return back.”
The same day an angel was sent from the Lord to kill one hundred and eighty-five thousand chosen soldiers of Assyria overnight. Just one angel! Sennacherib also went home and died. That is, God for you.
Thought for the day:
Trust God for your family, business, personal life and ministry.
Song for the day:
I believe, Yes Lord I believe, it is well with me
Bible reading for the day:
Nehemiah 4-6; Acts 2:14-47
