As we prepare for the maiden edition of the Agents of Change Christian Teachers Summit as well as the 10th edition of the World Agents of Change Conference, pray that God will go ahead of us and make every crooked path straight. Pray that God will fight for us and grant us victory on every side. Isaiah 45:2-3
This is what the Lord says to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of to subdue nations before him and to strip kings of their armor,
to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut: I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name. Isaiah 45:1-3
Yesterday we reflected on the fact that we need faith for our journey, to be able to overcome and resist every plan of the devil aimed at hindering us on our way. And we pointed out a few things that God expects us to do on our part.
Today, we see from our text, that God Himself is committed to making a way for us to do His will and fulfil His purpose like He did for King Cyrus.
So as we approach the Maiden edition of the Christian Teachers Summit and 10th edition of our annual conference, Let’s be assured that we have the Almighty God on our side, we have His word and His presence with us, to uphold and support us against every obstacle, challenge and opposition on our way as we set out to do His will. He will go before us and make crooked paths straight.
Who can stand in His way? He will strip kings of their armor for our sake, open shut doors, level mountains, break down gates of bronze, cut through bars of iron, and give us every resource we need for the sake of His name and His son Jesus.
When the Children of Israel were on their journey to the promised land, and they were edged between Pharoah, His Hosts and the Red Sea. God made a way! He parted the Red Sea, the Israelites passed through on dry land! Pharaoh and His Army were drowned!
Thus saith the Lord, which maketh a way in the sea, and a path in the mighty waters; Which bringeth forth the chariot and horse, the army and the power; they shall lie down together, they shall not rise: they are extinct, they are quenched as tow. Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:16-19 King KJV
No matter how tight and difficult our situation is, God will always make and clear the way! He melts obstacles and defeats oppositions.
Indeed, nothing can stand in our way! No man, no devil, no circumstance and no situation can limit or hinder us. We are unstoppable because of the most high, the way maker, the miracle worker.
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matt. 29:18-20
Nothing can be more assuring than this, He has not only given us power and authority to deal with obstacles and oppositions but assures us personally of His presence as we go along. What a glorious thing.
Let us rise up today and shout for joy! 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? … we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. Rom 8:31-32, 37.
Don’t be left out, God is about to do something glorious at the
2019 World Agents of Change Conference coming up in 7 days.
