Have you ever faced a situation that reeked of ‘impossible’? You know, the smell of hopelessness and helplessness, where life has dealt you one blow after another and you’re down for the count. You come to a fork in the road, one way leads to your miracle, but you’re just not sure which way the right way is. Am I talking to anyone this morning?
Psalm 27:1-3 says; Lord, you are my Light and my Savior, so why should I be afraid of anyone? The Lord is where my life is safe, so I will be afraid of no one! Evil people might attack me. They might try to destroy my body. Yes, my enemies might attack me and try to destroy me, but they will stumble and fall. Even if an army surrounds me, I will not be afraid. Even if people attack me in war, I will trust in the Lord.
David cried out in a declaration of faith, “You are my Light and my Savior, so why should I be afraid of anyone?” Whenever we face the biggest most impossible situation, we just need to stop and make this our prayer. Yes you’re under attack right now, but declare the outcome at the beginning. It reminds me of Ezekiel when God took him to the valley of dry bones, made him walk among them so he could see how impossible it looked, only to ask him if the bones could live. Then God told him to speak life into the bones.
Whatever you’re facing must bow to the Spirit of God in you. Speak to it! I know it feels foolish, but God uses foolish things to astound the wise. Unexplainable, that’s how He gets the glory. Ask the Lord what He would have you say and then say it. He may ask you to laugh; do it. He may ask you to shout out praises to His Name; just do it. What? Remember Jericho? You think what you face is bigger than those walls were? Formidable is still formidable regardless of what you face.
God, you are so much bigger than anything and you’re on MY side. No wonder Elijah didn’t fear when the army came to kill him. He could see in his spirit that those you had sent to rescue him were far greater than what he faced. I see the walls crumbling that my friends are facing today. I see giants scattering in every direction. Just as David said in verse 14, “Wait for the Lord’s help. Be strong and brave, and wait for the Lord’s help.” Waiting is the most difficult part of the process, but continue to remind the enemy who wins! The battle belongs to the Lord, now rest in that promise and rejoice until your miracle is manifested.
