We thank God for this day; it is an opportunity to know Him in ways we didn’t know Him before.
I pray that you will not run out of life, you will not run out of faith, you will not run out of hope, and you will not run out of money. You will not run out of both physical resources and spiritual resources. You will not run out of prayers and you will not run out of support.
Even though it feels like the whole world is in a horror movie, in the midst of that, the Lord is watching. We must put to practice the things we have known. If you have not been serious with the Bible before, it is time to get serious with the Bible. If you listen to political leaders, they are speaking with authority from the position of facts. Your words carry authority! Those who are in spiritual authority must watch out for negative words that are factual and begin to turn it around. I am not saying that you should begin to confront them but turn it round in the place of prayer. You must learn to cancel those negative words in the place of spiritual authority and prayers.
Secondly, nothing happens without God’s knowledge. The Bible says that “God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.” Say to yourself, “God has not appointed me to wrath but unto salvation.”
When Israel was in Egypt, God preserved them. In the furnace of fire, God preserved them. Nothing is happening now that God has not shown an example of divine escape from in the Bible. I have said before that there are things that you develop through association and other things that you develop in isolation. One of the things you develop in isolation is Intimacy.
Say after me, “GOD HAS NOT GIVEN ME AS A PREY OVER TO THE TEETH OF CORONAVIRUS, THE SNARE IS BROKEN, MY SOUL IS ESCAPE!”
25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.
29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
30 But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.
31 And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
32 And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.
In verse 30, the Bible says Peter “saw the wind”. You are a spirit, but you have a physical body. When you are dealing with negative circumstances, you are not to look with your physical eyes only.
26 And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land.
27 And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.
28 Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there.
29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan.
30 And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.
31 But the men that went up with him said, We be not able to go up against the people; for they are stronger than we.
32 And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature.
33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
In verse 30, you can see that Caleb was a man who saw something different because he was not just looking with his physical eyes only. Peter saw that the wind was boisterous but the Bible says that our escape is in His salvation.
There is a type of news that the devil is telling you, but there is another news, the good news! God remains good.
1 And all the congregation lifted up their voice, and cried; and the people wept that night.
2 And all the children of Israel murmured against Moses and against Aaron: and the whole congregation said unto them, Would God that we had died in the land of Egypt! or would God we had died in this wilderness!
3 And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey? were it not better for us to return into Egypt?
4 And they said one to another, Let us make a captain, and let us return into Egypt.
5 Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.
6 And Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, which were of them that searched the land, rent their clothes:
7 And they spake unto all the company of the children of Israel, saying, The land, which we passed through to search it, is an exceeding good land.
This is the minority report! Ten of the twelve had said something different. There are 3 aspects to any situation you might be facing:
- what you are seeing
- what the devil is telling you from what you are seeing
- what God is saying
The third one is the one that brings God to the scene. Let God be the one to show you what you need to know. Let Him be the one telling you what He can or cannot do and not the devil. He is the one that created the waster to destroy. One of the things you must focus on in this season is the teaching of the Lord that produces great peace. Let God show you His own picture.
Jehovah Shammah is the One who is there before you arrive, while you are there and after you have left. The things you must focus on are the things of the Lord that produce great peace.
8 If the Lord delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey.
9 Only rebel not ye against the Lord, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the Lord is with us: fear them not.
Three things you must see from verse 9:
- They are bread for us.
- Their defence is departed from them.
- The Lord is with us.
This is what I want you to remember; WHAT GOD IS SHOWING YOU IS NOT WHAT EVERYONE ELSE IS SEEING. The Lord our master is the master of coronavirus. His name is greater than every other name and at the name of Jesus, we are crossing over to the other side. The Lord is with us! You have the Holy Ghost with you so you are not alone. Coronavirus didn't blindside God, the Lamb that was slain was there even before Abraham.
I pray that you will see what God is showing you!
I pray that every negative interpretation in your mind shuts down. The Lord will give you a personalized interpretation. If you are a nurse, a doctor, or anyone in the frontline, the Lord is there with you. The One that sanctifies is there with you. God has a plan for you and I pray that your ears and eyes will see what God has prepared for you. It is well with you, you will get to the other side!
I speak over you:
You will not run out of faith! You will not run out of help.
You will not run out of life! You will not run out of joy.
You will not run out of hope, you will not run out of food.
You will not run out of grace, you will not run out of prophecies.
You will not run out of revelations, you will not run out of support.
You will not run out of intercessions, you will not run out of prayers.
You will have more than enough of these things.
You are blessed!
