Nigeria: Something Good Is Happening (II)

Shout out loud "Something Good is Happening to Me Right Now". You see, if you can do this regularly, consistently and persistently, you shall surely see its manifestations.

The reason I said you should shout it out loud is because the Bible says in Roms. 10:'17 "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God". As you declare it boldly, it starts to affect your reasoning and renews your mind for victory.

In Exo. 1:6-End, the bible talks about a new king that ruled over Egypt but did not know Joseph. He set his heart to do evil against the children of God. He set taskmasters over them and afflicted them greatly.

But glory to God, the more he afflicted them the more the children of Israel multiplied and grew. The new king was so vexed to the extent that he passed a decree that any male child born by the Hebrew women should be put to death.

But then in the midst of this decree, a man and a woman decided to get married and have children despite the risk of bearing a male child who will be killed.

This family did give birth to a male child by name Moses (read Exodus 2). But instead of been killed, the child found his way into the palace of the same king that wanted him killed. Surely this must be the supernatural hand of God and nothing else.

Whilst this young man was growing up in Pharaoh's palace, the children of God were suffering. The question now is, was God ignorant of their pains, sorrows and suffering? Not all. He was quite aware and that is why Moses was not destroyed at birth.

While the children of Israel thought they had been forgotten and forsaken. God was doing something on their behalf. He was raising up a man that He would eventually use to deliver them from bondage. Take note. God neither sleeps nor slumbers. He is well aware of all that is happening. You see God saw where the new king was going to but the king did not know that God had already seen his handwriting. Nothing Satan does to you that can surprise God. He had already worked out your solution in Christ Jesus.

The bible says that in the midst of their afflictions, they cried out to God and almighty God, heard their cry and came to their rescue. But you see, before they cried out, God had already started to do something on their behalf. You that are going through afflictions, persecutions and trials, know that you are not alone. The greater one is with you. He has guaranteed your victory and testimony. He wants you to wipe away your tears, for weeping may endure for a moment but joy cometh in the morning. You see, no matter how long the night wants to stay, morning must still appear. This means that what you are passing through right now that is not healthy is about to give way to the glory of God, Hallelujah.

Back to our text, when they were being afflicted, little did they know that God was doing something? When they cried to God, did they know that the one God would use was right there with them? You see, how God would bring you out no man can tell. But know that God is a just and faithful God. He cannot lie in any situation, for He is always true.

Finally, God delivered His children and catered for them, through ways and means that no man can explain. He does His works supernaturally. I want you to know that no matter what you are going through, the almighty God whom I serve is doing something good for you right now. He will cause you to triumph in Jesus Name.

Do you want to experience fulfillment of promises of God in your life? The starting point is you receiving Jesus Christ in your life as Lord and Saviour, if you have not already done so. Pray this simple prayer. Father, you said that whosoever shall call on the name of Jesus, shall be saved. I call on the name Jesus. Thank you for saving me and giving me the gift of eternal life. I praise you and give you all the glory.
