‘’I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.’’ (Isaiah 42:8 KJV)
God, the El-Elyon, sees all things and knows all things. There is nothing under the sun that happens to man without his foreknowledge and permission. Even when you seem to be wallowing in the pits of life with so many challenges barraging you here and there, God is still aware and he will never let you pass through any temptation that you cannot bear. He has equipped you with enough strength to come through the challenge triumphantly.
All the devil tries to do is to make the issue seem bigger than it actually is. You begin to see the enormity of the situation and shift from the bigness of your God. But I challenge you today to speak to the devil, yes, I know I am going through this challenge, but I know that as God lives whom I serve and believe, I shall overcome because I am more than a conqueror. I refuse to look at the problem and choose to focus on the bigness of my God. I want you to know that that problem though it may seem like a heavy burden to you is but a little thing in the eyes of our God. He can perfect that situation with just a word from his lips.
Anytime the devil tries to magnify a challenge, learn to find out what God is saying concerning the situation. When you discover what God has said concerning the issue, open your mouth and declare it, speak to it daily and you shall have that which you desire. What is God’s stand? Is it sickness? “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and by his stripes, we are healed.” – Isaiah 53:5 KJV Every sickness no matter the name given to it falls under this category. By his stripes, you are healed.
The work of Christ on the cross is a complete one. He said, “IT IS FINISHED”. Meaning, every situation is settled. That disease has gotten a quit notice today. Celebrate your healing and thank God for it.
