THE MESSAGE

GOD : OUR ONLY ANCHOR OF HOPE IN THESE CHALLENGING TIMES

**************************************************************************

1. BUILDER

The Lord is building His church and the gates of hell cannot prevail against it. When we belong to the church of Jesus Christ , our lives will be built up by the Lord. He will be a wall of fire around us. He will watch over us . The glory of the latter house will be greater than the former and the Lord will grant us peace. He will help us rebuild the broken areas of our lives and turn our wilderness into a garden of Eden.

MATTHEW 16:18-19

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

2. HEALER

The Lord is our healer. He will bless our food and water and take away sickness from us. The promises for healing is even greater for us who live under the New Covenant because Jesus took our infirmities and carried our sicknesses and we are healed by His stripes. We must receive the Lord as our Healer and experience His healing in our lives.

EXODUS 15:26

He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you."

MATTHEW 8:16-17

When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick.

This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: "He took up our infirmities and carried our diseases."

3. PROVIDER

The Lord is our provider and we must rely on Him to meet all our needs. When we fear the Lord and seek Him He will meet our needs. The Lord can meet our needs in a supernatural way. The widow who fed Elijah with her last meal was supernaturally provided for by the Lord. We must be faithful in giving to God even in difficult times and He will be faithful to provide for our needs .
