GOD IS STILL IN CHARGE
Memorise:
And he is before all things, and by
him all things consist.
Colossians 1:17
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Titus 1-3;
Philemon 1; Psalm 22:22-31
Read: Jeremiah 31:35
35 Thus saith the LORD, which giveth
the sun for a light by day, and the
ordinances of the moon and of the
stars for a light by night, which
divideth the sea when the waves
thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his
name:
Message
God is at the core of the creation of
Heaven and Earth. Without Him,
there could never have been
anything. The opening verses of
Genesis 1 reveal the activities of God
in making creation suitable for man’s
habitation. Unlike many ancient and
modern writers who assume what
they do not know about creation,
Moses, under the inspiration of the
Holy Spirit began his account of
creation in Genesis with conviction
and plain claims. By revelation, he
knew God was behind creation and
he stated it plainly as that. This kind
of accurate knowledge that takes a
writer back to several years before
his time could only come by
revelation. Some theologians say that
the earth had been in that disorderly
state for several millions and billions
of years and scientists also claim that
archaeological discoveries reveal
prehistoric matters that had existed
before man was created to exercise
dominion over creation. Whatever it
was, the point is that with God, there
can be a new beginning no matter
how far back the record of
disorderliness and darkness in
anybody’s life may go. The most
important period in your life begins
when God gives you a new beginning.
The wastage of the past; the crisis of
the past and the darkness of the past
will give way for a new beginning
when God commands a new sunrise
in your life. I decree on behalf of my
Daddy in heaven, that every
disorderliness and darkness in your
life will give way in Jesus’ Name.
Before God commanded the light to
be, the Bible says the earth was void
and without form, and darkness
reigned over creation. This state was
totally against what God had in mind
for creating the heavens and the
earth, but this problem was not
beyond redemption. We must let this
fact sink into our minds: that God is
still in charge of His universe. The
Lord can redesign your life which the
enemy may have battered. Your
achievements may be nothing to
compare with what God had in mind
about you from the beginning and
darkness may be reigning supreme in
your life instead of light. God will
give you a new beginning because He
has control over the entire creation.
He is completely in charge. Several
years ago, one of my children went
to America to study. There was a
change in government and the new
government refused to continue with
his scholarship. Things got so bad for
him and his family that there was no
food in the house, but God Almighty
who will always be in charge sent
some Americans who were going on
house-to-house evangelism to them.
On realising that this couple and
their set of twins were starving, they
did not only provide food but also a
job for his wife. Today, the family
has at least two houses that I know
about in America. This season shall
mark the beginning of new things in
your life in Jesus’ Name.
Prayer Point:
Father, speak your creative words
into my life and turn it around for
good in Jesus’ Name.
