Joel 2:25-27

‘I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm— my great army that I sent among you. 26 You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed. 27 Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the Lord your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed. NIV

Never again will you be ashamed because this year is your year of restoration and upliftment. The devil may have had the upper hand in 2012. Many things may have gone wrong but be rest assured that the faithful God who brought you this far will give you plenty until you are full, and you will praise the Lord your God for his wonders in your life.

NEVER AGAIN WILL YOU BE ASHAMED!

CONTINUATION

The bible says that this man went about naked. Sometimes I ask myself why it had to happen this way. If God wanted Joseph to be a prime minister, why did he have to send him into the pit, slavery, and  prison before lifting him up to the top? Sometimes the ways of God are strange. He allows the devil to have his way and when he comes in he comes with a bang and everybody gets to knows that indeed he is God. That is why he calls himself I am that I am.

When he moves, when he takes action, you have nothing to say but to acknowledge that this is the finger of God. When God moved in Egypt what did the magicians say? We have seen things but as for this one, we haven’t seen anything like it before. It must be the finger of God. May the Lord move in your life such that the people around you will know that yes indeed the hand of God is on your life.

Mark 5:1-5
 They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.   2 When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an evil spirit came from the tombs to meet him. 3 This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him any more, not even with a chain. 4 For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him. 5 Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.
NIV

So Jesus moved to land and as soon as he landed this mad man, a man possessed from the cemetery, not from home met him. Jesus knew immediately that this man was being tormented by evil spirits. The presence of Jesus was enough torment for the demons so they began to beg him. Don’t send us out just like that, they said.  I have tried to get the number of the demons that were tormenting the man. The bible says, Jesus commanded them out of the man and they went into two thousand pigs, which means that the demons in this man were about two thousand. That is why nobody could securely bind and help him.  Then I ask myself why were two thousand demons not able to kill the man? They should have been able to kill him and finish the job. They could not kill him because the man had not fulfilled the agenda of God for his life yet.  Friend you will not die, but live to declare the works of the Lord. Until you fulfill your assignment for the Lord, may your life never be cut short.

Two thousand demons harassing, disturbing, disgracing him, left him with nothing. He had lost everything. May be as you read this post you seem to have lost everything. Let me assure you that you haven’t lost it yet. You will recover all just as David did. You will not be destroyed because greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world. Jesus cast out all these demons.

What is your problem, what is your difficulty? It is no problem because God is able. It is a matter of time. Everyone may have given up on you. Your family may have voted you the most useless person in the family just because may be involved in something which they think you shouldn’t have. They have persuaded you on several occasions without success and therefore are fed up with you. May be you are running wild in life. It is about time you came back to your senses. I want to tell you that there is still hope for you.

As soon as Jesus cast out these demons the man came to his senses.  May you also come to your senses. May the power of God touch your life and bring a change. As soon as the man came to his senses I am inclined to think he used his hands to cover his nakedness, because he was naked. As you come back to your senses and realize your nakedness before God may his glory and righteousness. The people from the town came and everybody was asking what had happened to the man. He was sitting by Jesus in his right mind and listening to him. I believe it was because of this one man, that Jesus had to leave the crowd. Jesus went back into the boat because the people will not allow him into the town. Whiles some were yearning for him others were driving him away.  What are you doing with Jesus? May he permanently be with us. May we never do anything that will send him away from us.

The man wanted to go with Jesus but he asked him to go back to his family, the town folks and tell them what God had done for him. The man went to the Decapolis, which means ten towns. A mad man sitting in the cemetery, chewing dry bones, cutting himself with stones walking about naked is now preaching in ten towns. Why do you think the devil was interested in him? It was because of the LATENT power and ability to preach. He knew that if this man is saved he was going to spread the word all over and his kingdom will be in trouble. That is the same reason the devil is interested in you. If he allows you to fulfill the purpose and agenda of God for your life, his kingdom will suffer greatly.  So he keeps on multiplying your troubles. But you see, if you allow him the demons may not be two thousand, it may be ten thousand. Take a stand today and call upon the name of Jesus.

He is interested in your life because he knows that if he should leave you alone one day you will be a prayer warrior, a preacher, wealthy to give to the work of God etc. and bring many people to Christ. My prayer is that the devil will not have access to your life to destroy what God has deposited in you, if for nothing at all your salvation. It is time to look the devil in the face and tell him that you belong to Christ and not him. May the Lord help and guide you. May he give you what it takes to stand and live the life of Christ so that the devil will not be able to destroy what the Lord has put in you. You will live to fulfil the purpose and agenda of God for your life. You will be what God wants you to be under this sun. AMEN!

Ps 121:1-4
1 I lift up my eyes to the hills —
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

3 He will not let your foot slip —
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
NIV

Are you feeling down or up? Wherever you are, your only source of help and strength is from above, that is from God. If you rely on people including your self, they will fail you. There is only one God who cannot fail. It does not matter how long your challenge has persisted, the fact is that, He has what it takes to deal with it. All you need is to believe and trust Him. He is faithful and he will do it for you. Just believe and hold on your help is on the way.

Num 23:19-20
19 God is not a man, that he should lie,
nor a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act?
Does he promise and not fulfill?
20 I have received a command to bless;
he has blessed, and I cannot change it.
NIV

You are blessed and nobody can change it!!!!
