Showers of Blessing!

“Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain! Zechariah 4:7.

As we move on in our daily lives it might occur at times that out of nowhere a mountain suddenly pops up. Although, in our eyes, it seems to be a mountain, God does not see it the way we see it. Well, He has given us the power and the anointing to make this mountain into a plain.

No mountains can make any adverse effect in your lives if you have a solid foundation in God. See what Jesus says in Luke 6:48, “He is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently against that house, and could not shake it, for it was founded on the rock.”

We read in Exodus 14 that the Red Sea was a “mountain” for Moses and the children of Israel. Moses was a little shaken when he heard their cry and their rebellious words. In Exodus 14:15 God asks Moses a question, “Why do you cry to Me? Tell the children of Israel to go forward.” God had already anointed Moses to do all the signs and wonders in Egypt. But for a moment he forgot who he was. In Exodus 7:1 we read, “So the LORD said to Moses: “See, I have made you as God to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet.” In Exodus 14:16 God himself gives Moses the solution to the problem he is facing, “But lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea and divide it. And the children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the sea.” Now they are marching right through the problem and on dry ground too.

God does not put you through trials and tribulations. Remember, HE IS A GOOD GOD, FULL OF COMPASSION AND LOVE. He does not gain anything by making you suffer. So who brings all these troubles? I know for sure you are aware of it. God had a plan for the children of Israel even before they started out of Egypt and we read about it in Exodus 13:17. The crossing of the Red sea was the second plan because God did not want the children of Israel to be scared of wars.

In Mark 9:23 Jesus says, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

And believe, “For with God nothing will be impossible” Luke 1:37. With God on your side, all mountains will turn into plains.

Be Blessed!

Showers of Blessing!

“As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people from this time forth and forever. For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous… Psalm 125:2-3.

Every born again child of God is protected by the Lord from the evil one. As we read in Job 1:10 see what Satan says to God, “Have you not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? Do we have such a protection during these days? Yes, even now we have the hedge around us as Job had in his days. And the hedge is the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

God protects His people wherever they are. Do not think that God does not see you because you live in a remote area or in a land where you do not have the freedom to worship the LORD. You might be in a situation where there is none to help you out of your present condition. Do not worry, He sees you and is watching over you. The Word says, “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their cry.” Psalm 34:15. “The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth” Psalm 145:18.

In Exodus 12:13 we see how God protected His people before the great judgement on Pharaoh and the Egyptians. “Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.”

As you rise up in the morning plead the precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ upon your family and yourself and whatever belongs to you. No evil shall ever touch you. Satan will flee when he sees the blood of Jesus.

Dear brother/sister you are precious in the eyes of the LORD. He has seen you and He knows what you are going through. Psalm 139:5 says, “You have hedged me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me.” The supernatural protection of the Lord is upon you.

Be Blessed and remember Jesus loves you!
