“Your situation does not determine your final outcome!”
The Lord spoke to my spirit the above sentence, “Your situation does not determine your final outcome.”
I believe that God is reminding His children that He is always in control of our life. He is also our supernatural working God who is both the God of all possibilities and impossibilities. He is the Most High (Possessor of Heavens and Earth) Psalm 57v2
We are living in such a time in the world where the Bible says people are living in perplexity, confusion and insecurity. Suddenly you hear something happened and suddenly some other things happened. It has become a daily phenomenon!
With the advance of the internet technology, information and news have brought the world seemingly closer, whether to our betterment or detriment, that is left for us to evaluate.
However, I am blessed to know that the Holy Spirit has inspired a verse in the Bible which says:
Isaiah 33v6, “Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
(He, Jesus, is the stability of your times) And the strength of salvation; The fear of the Lord is His treasure.”
Thus I am encouraged, comforted and deeply persuaded that our Lord Jesus Christ is able to handle and change every situation that we are facing right now. He promised us in His word that He will bring us to the finish and also to bring us to our full inheritance.
Beloved, anything and everything that is in the will of God for us, has already been accomplished through the Cross of Calvary for you and me. Thus the word “strength” means “the riches, wealth” of salvation has been freely given to us through the resurrection life of our Lord Jesus Christ. Every need of our wholesome living on this earth until Jesus’s return, has been made available to us.
So whenever we are walking along the journey with God we need to appreciate that God’s hands are leading us along that Journey. We need to behold Him during our journey of life instead of our circumstances. God’s mercies will overlook and guarantee our future. Believe God, that what He has begun He will also see to the finish. Know that God is a good finisher and He will always complete and establish what He has begun in our lives. All we need to understand and be assured that while He is carrying His perfecting graces to shape our life, He is maturing and transforming us into His likeness. So rejoice and be exceedingly glad!
Psalm 138v8, “The Lord will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever;
Do not forsake the works of your hands.”
