Our Total Dependence on Almighty God (Revelation 19:6)
Revelation 19:6, And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the LORD God omnipotent reigneth.
When we're committed to carrying out God's will for our lives, we should expect to go through seasons of adversity. Our Father wants us to trust Him completely. God is omnipotent—He is all powerful. He is omniscient—He knows everything. He is omnipresent—He is able to be in many different places at the same time. Our Father is in complete control of every situation.
Our Father is more than sufficient to bring each of His children through any problem we will face. We must not allow our problems to seem bigger than God. Too many of us magnify the problems in our lives when we should be exalting Almighty God and trusting completely in Him.
Sometimes our Father allows our problems to get to the point where we must turn to Him. He wants each of His children to trust totally in Him. Whenever a situation looks hopeless, we should draw nigh unto the Lord and call upon Him. Psalm 91:2, I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Many times, we will be faced with problems that seem to be absolutely impossible to solve. When every door seems to be closed and there doesn't seem to be any way out, we must realize that God can bring us through if we keep our faith in Him and refuse to give up. Matthew 19:26, But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.
God's ways are much higher than our ways. We must not limit Him. We don't have to fight every battle by ourselves. He is with us every hour of every day. He wants to help us. II Chronicles 32:8, With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.
Too many of us want to give up because we're trying to fight battles our Father doesn't want us to fight. Many times we do our best to solve a problem, but nothing we do seems to work. We must not give up. We should persevere because we trust God to fight for us. II Chronicles 20:15, And he said, Hearken ye, all Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem, and thou king Jehoshaphat, Thus saith the LORD unto you, Be not afraid nor dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God's.
PRAYER: Father, I can't see any way out of this problem. However, I know You can see many solutions to this problem. I trust completely in You. I know You will bring me safely through. I will not give up because my faith in You is strong and unwavering. As You see me through this trail, may You allow others to see You deliver me, that they may learn from You. In Jesus name, AMEN!
