Every situation and circumstances, no matter how bad, useless or hopeless it may seem, always has a way out of it. Let me ask you a simple question. One plus one is equal to what? You laugh and wonder why should I be asking such a simple question.
Sure, one plus one cannot be a problem to you, but do you know that it is a problem for a little child. To you, there is a way out from this problem. But supposing I ask you another question 1000 x1000 +7423 x 7650- 13-269. Tell me what your immediate reaction right now is. For some people they will never attempt to find the answer because they think it is a complex question. But then, right in the question is the answer.
Beloved, if somebody can find the answer then you can also. No wonder the Bible says that ‘there hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able, but with the temptation also make a way of escape, that ye may be able to bear,” 1Cor. 10:13.
From the above scripture, God says that out of the problem, distress, dilemma, hopeless condition, there is a way out of it. One thing in the verse above is that the Bible says that what you are going through is common and you know very well that what is common has no value. Why are you trying to give the problem a cause to gain ground in your life by giving it a value. Don’t allow it to weigh you down because there is a way out of that predicament. The only way is through Jesus Christ. He is the only one who has promised abundant life to those who believe in Him. He said in John 10:10 “the thief (satan) cometh not but for to steal, and kill, and destroy, but I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
Jesus does not want you destroyed, that is the devil. The devil wants to ruin your marriage, finance, business, family, ministry, education, properties etc. He doesn’t want anything good for you. What can the father of liars (Jn.8:44) give to you? If I may ask, can you ever trust a liar? The answer of course is no. Liars cannot even trust a lair then why should a child of God rely upon the lies of the devil. Listen to what the Spirit of God is saying to you. There is a way out. You are not a failure, you are a success story. Where you are, you will be remembered for good. You are destined for greatness, you are a victor and not a victim, the hand of the Lord is upon you to give consistent miracles and testimonies.
Are you a servant of God reading this, your ministry may seem to be dwindling, you are losing your members than you are getting, your finances are getting so bad that you cannot foot the bills anymore, so you are becoming more and more discouraged, you are no more sure of yourself. Listen, there is a way out. He who began a good work is faithful to complete it. God said the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church. The one fighting you is already defeated, while you are winning with the heavenly host with you. Don’t give up, for your hair (ministry, finance etc) will surely grow again in Jesus name.
In Matt. 17:24-27, Peter was wondering from where they could have money to pay their tribute. He must have searched himself, calculated most probably all they have and must have come to the conclusion that there is no way out. But then, the One who knows what to do said to Peter,…”go thou to the sea and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth thou shalt find a piece of money; that take and give unto them for me and thee (vs27). You see, where Peter thought there was no way out Jesus, made a way. I pray that the yoke of financial stress in your life be destroyed and that the heavens be opened upon you to favour you always in Jesus name.
Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. He has made a way already for you. Believe it and you will be a candidate for a miracle because there are answers to every life shattering problem. Jesus is the answer. God bless you, our great nation Nigeria and President Goodluck Jonathan.
You can only find the way to God’s solution for the situation by first accepting Jesus as your Lord and savior if you have not already done so. Pray this simple prayer. Father, you said that whosoever shall call on the name of Jesus, shall be saved. I call on the name Jesus. Please forgive my sin and cleanse me from every form of unrighteousness. Fill me with the power of the Holy Spirit. Thank you for saving me and giving me the gift of eternal life. I praise you and give you all the glory.
