Welcome to December. It’s no revelation to anybody when I say that we are living in very uncertain times. 2020 is definitely going into the record books as unique to any year that I personally have ever lived. The political upheaval has created a great sense of uncertainty. No doubt we have all been affected by COVID-19 in some way. There are a lot of people in our church who tested positive in the last month. The disease has impacted all of us on many levels. But I just want to remind everybody that none of these things are bigger than God. The Bible tells us that a time is coming to the earth when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. His death and resurrection defeated Satan in every arena of life that we face.
No matter what happens politically, it cannot stop the plan of God. Jesus also defeated sickness at the cross. Every kind. Including COVID. The stripes that He bore speak to that. The name COVID must bow to the name of Jesus.
But that only happens when we enforce it. How do we enforce it? By believing it. I want to share a word that the Lord spoke to Trudi last week.
The other night Trudi woke up and heard the Lord say very firmly, “Who said I won’t be faithful to this generation?
No matter how it looks in your country …I am THE LORD and there is no other God besides me!”
Trudi then began to sing an old song that we sang back in the ‘80s….It goes like this:
“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever, I will sing of the mercies of the Lord.
With my mouth will I make known your faithfulness, your faithfulness.
With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.”
This song is based on Psalm 89:1-4. “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever; With my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.” For I have said, “Mercy shall be built up forever; Your faithfulness You shall establish in the very heavens.” “I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn to My servant David: ‘Your seed I will establish forever, And build up your throne to all generations.’
Trudi sensed that the Lord was perturbed that his people have so quickly forgotten that He is Lord and He will always be faithful no matter what’s going on.
He also said to her, “When the Son of Man returns will he find faith in us?” Luke 18:8, “Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” He will be faithful to take care of us! We must be faithful and not quit on Him!”
What we believe, our faith, is the thing that makes the difference. Jesus is Lord over everything on the earth. But what we believe determines what we experience. I pray that you experience the Lordship of Jesus in your house this Christmas season. Thank you partners. We love you.
