Key Passage: 2 Kings 6:1-7
Key Text: Malachi 3:6 – “For I am the Lord, I do not change;
Is the earth still rotating around the sun? Did night give way to day this morning? Did birds sing and cocks crow? Is time still working? Then we can be sure that God is still on His throne and whatever He says will come to pass!!
One thing about the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is that He never changes. This He said unequivocally in the book of Malachi Chapter 3 and verse 6, (NKJV) “For I am the Lord, I do not change; and the book of Hebrews 13:8 tells us Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. So this should make us ask some questions on the practice of our faith today and the dearth of miracles and earth shattering signs and wonders, we see in the bible. There are those who believe in the cessation of these aspects of our faith, but I am not even going to entertain such thoughts. God is still doing miracles today and we just need to adjust our theology to be very expectant of His miraculous intervention in our seemingly impossible situations.
Going back to the miracle of the floating axe-head, God clearly demonstrated that what man says is impossible is not impossible for Him. He showed clearly that the laws of nature will be suspended if He so chooses to express His sovereignty and power. It is good to sometimes, stop and ponder these miracles and imagine what it would have felt like to have stood by the banks of the Jordan River and experienced the sunk axe-head float back to the surface, simply because a stick was thrown into the river. All I can say is WOW!
God parted the Red sea for Moses and Israel to pass through on dry ground; God caused the Jordan to roll back so Joshua and Israel could cross over into the Promised Land. Jesus walked on water, calmed the storm, and turned water into wine at the wedding of Cana in Galilee. God can do anything and He is still doing the extra-ordinary, mind blowing, earth shattering miracles today. I mean right now!
Have you got an impossible situation on your hands? Is there a raging sea of trouble ahead of you? Is there a problem so befuddling that you are forced to cry out in despair? Let me ask you to take your eyes off your situation for a moment today and look up to the God of the bible. The God of Abraham. The Lord of Hosts. The God of the Armies of Heaven. The Lord Jesus Christ, who has conquered death, hell and the grave. Just look at Him and hear what he said in His word. He said ‘I am the God of all flesh, Is anything too hard for me?’ He said ‘with God nothing shall be impossible.’ The prophet Jeremiah cried out “Ah Lord God, you have created the heavens and the earth by your great power, nothing is too difficult for you.”
Your situation is no too hard for God to change around. He is ready to help and transform your difficult situation. Just ask Him. The God of miracles is ready and willing and more than able!!!
Enjoy this song!
Let’s pray: Dear Father, creator of the heavens and the earth, please show your power to my generation and let your children see Your great miracles in their lives. There are those who are faced with impossible situations as far as man is concerned, but Lord, You are not and cannot be limited and You know no impossibilities. Please intervene and confound the sceptics. Lord thank you for what You are doing in the earth today. Thank you for Your faithfulness. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
