 The Everlasting God

“To whom then will you liken Me,  Or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, And see who has created these things,  Who brings out their host by number; He calls them all by name,  By the greatness of His might And the strength of His power; Not one is missing.   Why do you say, O Jacob,  And speak, O Israel: “My way is hidden from the LORD,  And my just claim is passed over by my God”?  Have you not known?  Have you not heard?  The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth,  Neither faints nor is weary.  His understanding is unsearchable.  He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary,  And the young men shall utterly fall,  But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:25-31

“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19

The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, the Compassionate Lord, who calls out things that do not exist as though they existed and performs miracles (Romans 4:17), has promised to meet and supply all the needs of His trusting ones according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus, even miraculously.

When He was in this world, Jesus was moved with compassion on seeing the huge crowds that came to listen to His preaching. He said that He would not send them away hungry without food (Matthew 15:32). The Lord multiplied the seven loaves of bread and the two fish and fed the multitudes. That was His compassion. He not only fed the multitudes but also took the fragments after every one had eaten well (Matthew 15: 36, 37).   Similarly He will meet all the needs of His trusting ones in abundance. It is for this purpose that He came down to earth to give them blessed life as they call upon Him saying, “Speak miracles in my life and remove the lacks in my life through Your power. Let your healing power flow in my and my loved ones. Bless the labor of my hands and my income. Fill my life with Your goodness and lovingkindness in Jesus name!” His word is true:

My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him.  He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.  In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.  Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah Psalm 62:5-8

“Now therefore, stand and see this great thing which the LORD will do before your eyes:1 Samuel 12:16

Yes God is our defense, our rock, our shelter, our salvation and our glory and we can trust in Him at all times and pour out our heart before Him.  No matter what our condition is today be it struggling with insufficiency in our life,  having  no house to live in or no work to earn a living or no blessing of a child in the midst of all these troubles, we can look up to the Lord.  We can talk to Him through our prayers, read and meditate on His word and He will come and help us and blessing. The Bible says, “God will never disappoint those who trust in Him (Psalm 62:6). Whatever circumstances we face in life, we can hold fast to the Lord and He will never disappoint us. Our face shall radiate with the joy at His faithfulness, provision and prosperity.

The word of God tells us, “If God be for us, who can be against us?” (Romans 8:31). So, we should first seek Him faithfully, walk in His strength and power and none can stand against us. If we fail to seek the Lord and depend on our wisdom, understanding and power, then surely we will run into trouble. It is the Lord alone Who can preserve us from all evil and dangers (Psalm 121:7). Therefore we must seek Him by reading and meditating on His Word and in prayer and give room to the working of the Holy Spirit in our lives!

When we are joined with the Lord, you become one spirit with Him. “He who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him” (1 Corinthians 6:17). It is by prayer that we become joined with the Spirit of the Lord and the fear of this world will leave you. The Lord’s Spirit will overcome our spirit and we shall be more than a conqueror.

When the Holy Spirit abides in us, He will bless us with wisdom, knowledge and understanding. He will put our adversaries to shame. The word of God  says, “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him” (Psalm 91:15). The Lord is near to us and He will help us. He will destroy our enemies and give us victory. He is our Helper and Deliverer (Psalm 70:5). So, we can call upon Him today and see His delivering power manifested in our life.

The Lord has no problem to  enable us to overcome any sickness and restored  us to good health. He will also help us conquer the problems in our life and lead us victoriously in life for after all Victory is His middle name. The Lord has promised us, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest” (Exodus 33:14). He will go before us and make the crooked places straight in our life (Isaiah 45:2). The Lord Jesus Christ gave up everything for us on the cross to fill our life with goodness and give us eternal life and every good thing. As we hold fast to the Lord He shall abide with us and we shall live a victorious life on earth.  He will fill our life with goodness and loving kindness. And He will not let the works of the enemy prosper against us and our family.

The word of God tells us that King David walked with God closely. Whenever he faced problems, he cried to the Lord to sustain him with His grace. “Unless the LORD had been my help, My soul would soon have settled in silence. If I say, ‘My foot slips,” Your mercy, O LORD, will hold me up’” (Psalm 94:17,18). When we traverse the path of sufferings, we face problems. When we cry out to the Lord to show us mercy, He will uphold us with His mercy and lead us. However saintly we may be, we stumble in many things (James 3:2) and at such times, when we look up to Him and tell Him, “Lord! please help me”, He will surely help us in our distress. He will cause peace and joy to abound in our lives and His blessing and  loving kindness to follow us through our lives. His word is true:

The LORD will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, And in the night His song shall be with me-A prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8

Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!  Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:  Who forgives all your iniquities,  Who heals all your diseases,  Who redeems your life from destruction,  Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5

Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. Romans 8:37

“Thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” (2 Corinthians 2:14)

The victory that Lord Jesus Christ gives is a perfect victory. Problems may surround us on all sides but the Lord shall give us victory over them. No sufferings of this world can separate us from the love of Christ including tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? (Romans 8:35-36). The Lords knows our problems and has an account of them all. The Lord says He will give us total victory over each of your problems. It is His desire to crown us with victory.  When you seek the Lord, He will help us to overcome them in perfect victory. It is true that the sufferings of this world are like strong water currents that will drown us. But we do have to worry because He has made us a conqueror in Lord Jesus Christ.  As we seek him diligently and  obey His voice He will crown us with victory in everything. His word is true:

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. 1 John 5:4

For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, 0 who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us,  you also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many  Corinthians 1:8-11
