TOPIC: You Can’t Box God In (II)

READ: Isaiah 55:8-9 
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Ephesians 3:20

RCCG Open Heaven Daily Devotional 21 December 2023 MESSAGE

Some people think they have God all figured out. They think they know all that there is to know about Him and how He does His things. After several encounters with God, a lot of suffering for His work and even episodes of being stoned and left for dead while preaching the gospel, Apostle Paul said in Philippians 3:10:

“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death”. When you go for a service, how much you get from it can be limited by your expectations. If you expect that the Pastor will mention your own case and he doesn’t, that is not proof that God has not answered your prayer.

God can decide to work loudly or quietly; all He requires from you is faith, not an analysis of how He will work. He expects us to walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7). There was a testimony of a lady who was born with so many abnormalities – including having one lung instead of two, and her heart being on the right side of her chest instead of the left.

As such, she struggled with her health from the day she was born. Finally, somebody recommended a hospital in Dubai. Still, she decided to go to the Holy Ghost Service first but nothing special appeared to happen concerning her case during the service. Afterwards, she went on to Dubai as she had planned. When she arrived, the doctors examined her and had to ask what she came in for because they could not see anything wrong with her.

She thought the people there didn’t know what they were saying so she went to another Hospital in Dubai. They also examined her and said there was nothing wrong with her. The Doctors could not believe that she was the same person they had read her case note from Nigeria Blessed Redeemer because they could see her heart on the left and she had two lungs, not one. If she had assumed that, because I had not mentioned her case at that Holy Ghost Service, then God was not interested in her, she might have missed her miracle. You at all times, in Jesus’ name.
