THE LORD MAKES EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN HIS TIME
1. THE LORD WILL MAKE EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN HIS TIME . WE SHOULD ALLOW HIM TOTAL FREEDOM TO WORK IN OUR LIFE ACCORDING TO HIS PLAN AND PURPOSE . WE SHOULD GIVE GOD THE TIME HE NEEDS TO COMPLETE THE WORK HE WANTS TO ACCOMPLISH IN OUR LIVES .
" He has made everything beautiful in its time...." Ecclesiastes 3:11
2. THE LORD WILL BUILD HIS CHURCH AND THE ENEMY CANNOT DESTROY THE WORK OF GOD . THE LORD HAS GIVEN US THE AUTHORITY TO BIND THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY AND RELEASE THE BLESSINGS OF GOD . HE WATCHES OVER HIS PEOPLE DAY AND NIGHT AND PROTECTS THEM FROM HARM.
"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.I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matthew 16:18-19
" I, the LORD, watch over it;I water it continually.I guard it day and night so that no one may harm it. " Isaiah 27:3
3. THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD HELPS US TO PRAY ACCORDING TO THE WILL OF GOD . THE LORD ENSURES THAT ALL THINGS , EVEN THINGS WHICH APPEAR EVIL AND HARMFUL TO US , WILL ULTIMATELY WORK FOR OUR GOOD BECAUSE WE LOVE GOD AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE . THE LORD STANDS ON OUR BEHALF AND INTERCEDES FOR US AND GRANTS US VICTORY OVER ALL THE ATTACKS OF THE ENEMY. THEREFORE WE MUST BE STRONG IN FAITH BELEIVING THE PROMISES OF GOD . THE LORD WILL SURELY BLESS US AND NO ONE CAN CURSE THOSE WHOM GOD HAS BLESSED.
"In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints in accordance with God’s will. And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him,who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. " Romans 8:26-34
"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised. For in just a very little while, "He who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. And if he shrinks back,I will not be pleased with him."But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved. " Hebrews 10:35-39
" God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? I have received a command to bless;he has blessed, and I cannot change it. "No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel.The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. There is no sorcery against Jacob, no divination against Israel.It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, ’See what God has done!’ " Numbers 23:19-23
4.THE LORD PROMISES THAT HIS GLORY WILL INCREASE IN HIS CHURCH AND HE WILL GRANT PEACE TO HIS PEOPLE. HE WILL CAUSE HIS PEOPLE TO TRIUMPH BY HIS SPIRIT . HE WILL MAKE EVEN MIGHTY MOUNTAINS TO BECOME LEVEL GROUND.HE WILL BE A WALL OF FIRE AROUND HIS PEOPLE AND WHOEVER TOUCHES THEM WILL BE TOUCHING THE APPLE OF HIS EYE.
"’The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house,’ says the LORD Almighty. ’And in this place I will grant peace,’ declares the LORD Almighty." Haggai 2:9
