2017: A Year of victory (3)
“...he gave them manna – bread from heaven. He opened up a rock and water gushed out to form a river through the dry and barren land” Psalm 105:40-41”
The victory has started! Are you not seeing it? This year you shall flourish in every area. Your years of hunger and thirst are over. I don’t care what kind of hunger you have been going through. Hunger and thirst for food and drink? Hunger for miracles? Hunger for breakthrough? For a new job? Hunger for a genuine partner? Hunger for finance? Thirst for spiritual breakthrough? Thirst for healing? Thirst for stability in your life and family? Whatever thirst and hunger, God is meeting you this year as you believe these words in the mighty name of Jesus! He did that for Israel when they crossed the Red Sea into the wilderness. Divine promises will always defy physical laws, environments and conditions. When God leads, all obstacles succumb. There is going to be supernatural provision of ‘bread and water’ for you this year! And you already know what that means – you will be nourished in every area of life. Praise God!
When they left the shores of the sea and arrived at the Shur Desert, traveling for three days, they became terribly thirsty. And remember they were with their babies, young ones and their cattle; those they could lay hands on as the hurried out of Egypt. Now, imagine the commotion in that desert. And suddenly they found water at Marah, but it was bitter. The LORD told Moses what to do and the water became good for drinking. Please, you must have to listen and follow God’s directions meticulously if you want to be victorious this year. This is very important. His directions and your total obedience are the road map to your victory. Moses completely followed His instructions. It was after healing the bitter water at Marah that God promptly gave them the real lesson of the moment. Listen to Him, “if you will listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his sight, obeying his commands and laws, then I will not make you suffer the diseases I sent on the Egyptians; for I am the LORD who heals you.” Yes, it was not really about Marah or water, but about total submission and obedience. God wants us to trust and obey Him, no matter the situation. True.
After Marah, they came to Elim where they found twelve springs and seventy palm trees. Each spring for each tribe! Twelve and the seventy represent completeness and satisfaction. You shall be satisfied this year! After these, God also miraculously gave them manna, quail and water from the rock. Bread, meat and spring water from heaven. My God! This is your year of sufficiency. God has been waiting for this time to release these divine provisions to you. Your victory is coming with divine provisions. Heaven is opening for you now. Look at the heaven and the rock opening for you. Look! Your doubts and complains will be overruled because God has decided to do it because of His promises and covenants. He cannot break His covenants! God bless you. Till next week.
