God can help you even when the odds against you are overwhelming. When He decides to, He will show the odds that He is still the All-Sufficient God. In Isaiah 43:13, the Almighty God says no one can hinder Him when He decides to work. In other words, it doesn’t matter how many forces are at war against you; when God decides to help, nothing can stop Him.

In Daniel 3, when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego were to be thrown into the fiery furnace, the furnace was heated seven times more, yet the only people who died were the soldiers who threw the boys inside. The people thrown right into the furnace came out alive. In Judges 15:11-15, the Bible says that Samson’s relatives handed him over to the external enemies, but by the end of the day, a thousand of these enemies were dead while the rest fled.

It doesn’t matter how many enemies you are dealing with; God will help you deal with them all, in Jesus’ name. My God is the One who makes a way where there is no way, so when it looks like there is no way out, God can still make a way. One day while I was abroad, I was told that one of my spiritual sons was in the hospital, suffering from an advanced case of cancer.

Humanly speaking, his case was completely hopeless. I went to visit him at the hospital on a Saturday and prayed for him. By the following Wednesday, my son was discharged completely whole. The beauty of that story is that every other person who had been in the ward when I prayed for him was also discharged. There was also this case of a lady that had been told by doctors that she had a 99.99% chance of dying from a particular disease.

I couldn’t go to the hospital at that time, so I prayed on a handkerchief instead and sent it to her. God used the remaining 0.01% that the doctor left out to save her life. She wrote a book titled, ‘Rescued from the Jaws of Death’, testifying of her divine healing. I don’t know how hopeless your case seems to be; everyone may have even given up on you, but I decree that God will make a way for you today, in Jesus’ name.
