He will do it again
Brethren, one thing that is indisputable is the fact that God is unchangeable and nothing takes Him unawares. What He did before, no matter how complex it may appear in our eyes, God can still do it again. He is the Author and designer of every creature, the Almighty God.
That you are alive today is ascribed to His benevolence. It is not because you are careful or clever that keeps you till date, but for the reason that His compassion fails not. If you attest to this fact, then I want to assure you that same God Who answered you before, Who made provision for you before, Who delivered you from the hands of enemies in time past, Who cured you when you were sick, Who sustained you till date, will do it again in your life in Jesus name. It does not matter how bad the situation may be now, or how powerful your enemy vis-a-vis the enemy of the country may be, the fact is that He has delivered you before, He has delivered the country before and He is still able to deliver again, even today in Jesus name.
Why would you imagine the politicians and our economic engineers are mightier than God? Why are you afraid that God will not give answer to that petition you made to Him? Why are you so disturbed that God Who brought you to this world will not give you your own husband/wife? Why are you afraid that God Who fed you yesterday will not feed you today? My friend, the God, Who did it before, will do it again. God will give you answer of peace and turn your sorrow to joy.
The common problem of many people in this present day is that of failing to remember what the Lord did in the time of old, as chronicled in the Bible and even in this present day in our midst. When you hear many people murmuring and complaining of their present situations, the things they say at such times make one wonder if God is still in control of human affairs. Their attitude makes some people wonder if God is still alive or has changed. The same scenario played out in the days of Elijah.
1Kings 19:1-4 says, “And Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and withal how he had slain all the prophets with the sword. 2 Then Jezebel sent a messenger unto Elijah, saying, So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by to morrow about this time. 3 And when he saw that, he arose, and went for his life, and came to Beer-sheba, which belongeth to Judah, and left his servant there. 4 But he himself went a day’s journey into the wilderness, and came and sat down under a juniper tree: and he requested for himself that he might die; and said, It is enough; now, O LORD, take away my life; for I am not better than my fathers.”
Elijah was known as a powerful prophet in his era. He was a prophet who at his command made fire to come upon his enemies. He slained more than four hundred prophets of Baal that challenged the Supremacy of God Almighty. But with all these feats, this man couldn’t stand the threat of a woman, and he ran away, murmured against God and even requested that God to kill him. He couldn’t remember what God had done before, neither could he remember that God changes not. He forgot that the God Who did what Ahab mentioned to Jezebel could still do those things again, and even better. Beloved, we serve a great and living God Who can do all things. If you can have this understanding, happy are you. Fear not, for we have found ourselves in the same political and economic situation before and were delivered and even now, He is able to turn our sorrow to joy.
Examples And Reasons
Examples abound of what the Lord did in the past. He created all things out of nothing in the very beginning; and nothing exists today without His permission. Genesis 1:1-3 says, “In the beginning God created the Heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
God created the world not from any existing materials, but out of nothing. Nothing throughout the wide extent of nature, originated by chance. The whole universe was produced by God’s creative power. God spent six days in assimilating, sorting, and arranging the materials, out of which He built up, not only the earth, but the whole of the solar system.
Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the LORD’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” The Lord fills the heaven and earth. There is no way the earth can be separated from God. Everything about the earth is designed and placed by God, including its wealth, its life, or its worship. The earth is full of God. He made it full and He keeps it full, notwithstanding all the demands. which living creatures make upon its stores. The sea is full, despite all the clouds, which rise from it; the air is full, notwithstanding all the lives which breathe it. The soil is full, though millions of plants derive their nourishment from it. Jehovah is the King of kings and President of the presidents. The world is all God’s and all things belong to Him, none belong to the devil or other gods.
Gen. 24: 1-3 says, “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed”.
We have here the call by which Abram was removed out of the land of his nativity into the land of promise, which was designed both to try his faith and obedience and also to separate him and set him apart for God, and for special services and favours. As a result of this, his name was changed to Abraham and a village man was turned into a great nation. This shows that God changes situation, as He likes.
. 21:1-2 says. “And the LORD visited Sarah as he had said, and the LORD did unto Sarah as he had spoken. 2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him”. God fulfilled his promise to Sarah by giving her, at the advanced age of ninety, power to conceive and bring forth a son. God’s blessing upon the nursing of children, and the preservation of them through the perils of the infant age, are part of His wonders, care and tenderness.
God enthroned Joseph a stranger in Egypt and caused his elder siblings to bow before him, which was contrary to their will. God brought the dreams of Joseph to accomplishment. So, who is it that is opposing God’s Will in your life? God is determined to prove He changes not. Your enemies must bow before you. Your sorrow shall be turned to joy. You will be delivered from that sickness or problem because the one who did it before is still at hand to do it again. God dealt with Pharaoh and the Egyptians with great signs and wonders to prove that He is above Pharaoh and his gods. The Almighty God is the God of all and He will prove it in your life.
All the things you see on earth today, including man, animals, birds, rocks and waters, among others, were all created by God Almighty Who had designed them to bring Him pleasure. He created and has made all things possible from the beginning till date, and I am assuring you that with the same God, all things are possible.
Matt. 4:23-24 says, “And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And his fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with devils, and those which were lunatick, and those that had the palsy; and he healed them.”
All these the Lord did to prove that He is God and beside Him there’s none else. And even in the present day, around us, we can testify to the fact that God has done something for all of us before. He that did it before will do it again, regardless of what your present situation may be suggesting. If you can remember all that the Lord has done for you and others in time past and in the present days, He will surely remember you and do again what He did before in Jesus name.
Our Confidence And Expected
No book could accommodate all that God has done in this world for men. Our confidence is that God Who did it before has not changed. His power, love, mercy, and goodness have not changed. He is much more able to do whatever He has done before than whatever may be your present travails. And if you have not received answer to your supplication all this while, I am assuring you that as you come this weekend to the programme titled ‘SORROW TO JOY,’ you will be given answer to your petition in Jesus name. God has set aside the two days to do what He has done before, to turn sorrow to joy.
Ephesians 3:20 says “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
God is much more able than ever to do whatever you ask Him to do, for He has done it before. We must consider what He did previously in our lives, in your own very life, how He has given you salvation, how He has delivered you from the hands of your oppressors, how He has kept you from being destroyed all these years. As you remember all these and call upon Him in accordance with His Will, He will surely answer you in Jesus name.
1Sam. 17:34-37 says, “And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: 35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. 36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God. 37 David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee.”
Beloved, that giant boasting against you shall be brought low today. Just remember what God has done for you before like David. He that did it before shall do it again for you in Jesus name. All the Egyptians you currently see shall be seen no more in your life in Jesus name. They shall fight for you and you shall hold your peace. All the mountains and everything that represents any type of impossibility shall not stand anymore against you in Jesus name. No matter the problem you are facing, as you call upon the God Who did it before, He will do it again in your life in Jesus’ name.
