GOD'S REMEMBRANCE AND DELIVERANCE II- 23/03/2014
Yesterday’s message was titled “GOD'S REMEMBRANCE AND DELIVERANCE 1 ”. Today’s message is titled “GOD'S REMEMBRANCE AND DELIVERANCE II” as provided by Pastor E. A. Adeboye in Open Heavens Devotional (Adeboye, 2014). In today’s message, we have been asked to memorise Geneis 8:1: "And God remembered Noah,and every living thing and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters as waged;." and read Genesis 8:1-4. The Bible in one year for today has been taken from Ezekiel 16 and Psalm 68:22-35 (Adeboye, 2014).
When the world was in enmity with God and He decided to destroy it by a flood, Noah found favour in the sight of the Lord according to Genesis 6:5-8. Though Noah and his family escaped from the ﬂood, they were however caged in the ark, which of course would have become something else after some days of eating and passing of body waste in the ark. God remembered Noah and all the living things with him in the ark. May the Good Lord remember you for good today in Jesus‘ Name. There are some revelations we can catch in this story. One of such is that when God remembers an individual in trouble and bondage, the following things would happen: the wind of the Holy Spirit will blow away all the challenging situations (Genesis 8:1); the terrible waters will be dried up and the fellow will escape being drowned (Genesis 8:2). Moreover, the tempestuous life will become peaceful (Genesis 8:4). Beloved of the Lord, there are conditions for God's remembrance to facilitate deliverance as experienced by Noah and his family. One of such conditions is godly living, even in the midst of a perverted generation of men. It is a pity that many children of God in the 21“ century live ungodly lives with the excuse that the world is perverted. Jesus Christ said Noah will be a witness against these so- called children of God who would attribute their worldly and ungodly living to the fact that their world was ungodly (Matthew 24137-39). Pay attention to God's testimony concerning Noah:
“And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and at! thy house into the ark; for thee have I been righteous before me in this generation.” Genesis 6:9
Another of these conditions is a life of worship. God must see in you the desire to worship Him before He can remember you for good,‘ because He is a prudent investor (Genesis 8:20-22). I pray for you that the Almighty God will remember you for deliverance today in Jesus' Name. Please ensure you live a godly and Cultivate the habit of intense worship. You will thee experience divine remembrance.
The prayer point for today is "Father, remember me this day and deliver me from all my oppressors in Jesus' Name."
I apologise for the inability to post yesterday's message as at when due and for posting today's message late. It was due to some challenges beyond my control. Please pray for me for more grace. God bless you all in Jesus Name, Amen
