“And the spirit of the Lord hovered over the surface of the waters…” – Genesis 1:2

Then God said… Then God… Then… Then…

“The Spirit of the Lord hovered…”

“Then God said…”

We have a mighty truth found in the first three verses of our Bible, three verses that we all have heard and read hundreds of times. There is a hidden truth that will give to life to the dying, wealth to the poor, hope to the depressed, and deliverance to the oppressed.

“The Spirit of the Lord hovered… and then God said…”

O’ Lord hover over our church today, hover over our congregation of believers today, hover over our hearts, hover over our minds, hover over our mortal bodies, and hover over our spirit today. And then Lord… And then...

We are a faith of praying believers, we are a faith of people that believe that God will answer prayer – so we cry out – we cry out – we cry out. But do we truly follow the wonderful examples that God has shown us in his word? Are we missing the ability to bring the Kingdom of God (his reality) into our reality, by ignoring the principles and direct commands that God has laid out for us in his word? Let me ask that question again…

Are we missing the ability to bring the Kingdom of God (HIS REALITY) into our reality, by ignoring the principles and direct commands that God has laid out for us in his word?

Who has prayers that you want to see answered? Who here has been praying and waiting for God to answer, for God to move, for God? Maybe God is simply waiting for us…

· Job 22:28 “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee”

A decree is an order, a law, it is a command that is set forth by authority that must be followed by those under that authority. When the King of a country or territory set forth a decree – it was final. The decree could not be changed or done away with, because the Kings word was to never be doubted.

So it is with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords – his word will never return void, it always accomplishes what is was set forth for.

You shall decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you!

This is not “name it and claim it” or “blab it and grab it” theology that somehow ran rampant in the 90’s – however just because some people exploited truth or added covetous desires along with their prayers, does not dismiss the truth that lies in the word of God.

Truth will always remain and truth that is for you and I today!

We excuse our lack of supply, our lack of understanding, and our lack of power, as God’s sovereign will. God is a sovereign God we say. God has a plan we say. God is still on the throne we proclaim. Our ways are not his ways and our thoughts are not his thoughts we reason with one another.

It’s OK if our Government supports abortion we say – God has a plan…

It’s OK if we allow Gay marriage and homosexual rights – God is still on the throne…

It’s OK if the church body is full of sickness and disease – God is still in control…

It’s OK if our churches are small and the world around us is going to hell – God is still God…
