Summary: IT AIN’T OVER TILL IT’S OVER
IT AIN’T OVER TILL IT’S OVER
I am very excited and encouraged in my spirit today because God is so good! Not only is He good; He’s faithful! He’s merciful. He’s just. He is a loving God. He’s kind. He’s a provider. He’s a way-maker. He’s a deliverer. He’s a healer. He’s Lord and Savior .
GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.
I am here to tell somebody: “Don’t throw in the towel just yet”. It might look like all hope is gone, and that everyone else is finishing the race without you, but
Don’t give up just yet. It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over !
God has blessings for you and if you don’t quit you will see His promises for your life. Just because things don’t work out exactly how we planned them does not mean that God is not at work in your life. No matter what your situation is, I can tell you that God is at work in your life. “ It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over “
Ezekiel is faced with a seemingly hopeless situation.
God physically picks Ezekiel up and carries him out to a valley full of dry bones, probably the scene of some great battle of years gone by. And He asks him a very interesting question. "Son of man, can these bones live?" Ezekiel looks out over the carnage. Bones are lying everywhere. I doubt very seriously if they were all nice and neatly arranged. They had been certainly ravaged and torn apart by scavenging animals.
Then they had been exposed to the elements for many years. Likely the bones of individual bodies were scattered everywhere. Ezekiel ponders His answer.
Of course had it been anyone else asking the question, the answer would have been obvious. Ezekiel's first thought was probably what yours and mine would have been. Are you kidding? These bones have been laying here for years. What do you mean, "Can they live?" Then Ezekiel remembers who he is speaking to.
LORD - Jehovah - The self-existent one. Then he gives his wise answer. "O Lord GOD, thou knowest."
He answered that way because as far as he could see, the situation was plainly and desperately HOPELESS. And yet, in faith, he recognized that NOTHING IS HOPELESS OR IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD.
The Title of my message this morning is…
It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over
I don’t know WHAT the future holds…but I state with complete certainty that I know WHO holds my future! When most people think it’s over, God asks, “Did I say it was over?” “Weeping may last for a night, but Joy comes in the morning.” It’s not over until God says it’s over. It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over.
◾A marriage can come back together
◾A family can come back together
◾A church can come back together
◾A business can come back together
◾A dream can come back together
◾Hope can come back together
Why? Because it ain’t over….till it’s over.
Keep fighting. Keep praying. Keep fasting because it ain’t over. Keep on pressing, keep on believing.
Keep moving cause it ain’t over. No! Keep reading, Keep interceding. Keep believing. Keep trusting.
Keep trying. Keep travailing because it ain’t over. Keep living. Keep giving. Keep going because it ain’t over! So keep fighting until the victory is won!!!!
When people say you can’t, remember He can.
When you don’t know what to do, He knows. On this day, the Lord says to you. It ain’t over till it’s over!
I don’t care what it looks like. It ain’t over till it’s over God and God alone has the final say! It ain’t over….
When Sarah was 90 years old and God told her that she would bear a son, Is anything too hard for God
Jer 32:27 Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?
The angel Gabriel reminded Mary… Luke 1:37
For with God nothing shall be impossible.
Jesus told His disciples, Matt 19:26 With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
Ø There is no such thing as a hopeless case.
Ø There are no hard cases for God
Ø There are no problems that are too big for our God.
Ø There is nothing that comes as a surprise to Him.
Look at Samson, It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over.
I'm talking to some folks today who are away from the Lord. You're not right with God, and you know it. Others know it, too. I'm talking to adults, teens, and younger folks alike. You come to church and sit through sermon after sermon all-the-while being convicted of the sins you harbor in the depths of your heart. Will you ever just decide to make things right? Can you make things right? You can, because it ain't over till it's over. You are still alive. This means it's not over for you. You still have time to make things right with others and get right with God.
