Good day People of GOD
I know that, whatever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before him (American King James Version).
Today, we will be looking at Ecclesiastes 3: 14 which says that whatever good things GOD does shall last forever, and nothing can be added to or taken away from it.
In the preceding verses, King Solomon who wrote the Book of Ecclesiastes speaks of times and seasons; and how it is GOD’s Will that every man eat the fruit of his labor. Then comes verse 14: ‘…whatever God does, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God does it, that men should fear before him (American King James Version)’.
Essentially, whatever GOD has ordained is permanent – nothing can be added to or taken away from it. If it is your appointed time for a breakthrough or prosperity, nothing can disrupt it or stand in the way of your claiming victory. I was worried about certain things and discussing them with my father last week and he quoted this Scripture. He was encouraging me that GOD has given me what I have and brought me to where I am today, and NOBODY CAN CHANGE IT. This Scripture had been my prayer point since then.
Where there is sugar you will see flies. Where there is breakthrough you will see enemies (so more than one enemy). That is just the way it is. If you are not armed with the Word of GOD, and ready to fight, when the enemy comes, he could take you down with him. Isaiah 59: 19 says that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD will raise a standard. How do you get the HOLY SPIRIT on your side? By arming yourself with the Word! This is why Paul likens the Word of GOD to the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6: 17). I was reading Rick Warren’s devotional today and he was emphasizing study of GOD’s Word as the way to build your faith. And I told myself to get real: no matter how busy I am, I have to study GOD’s Word every day, because when stuff happens, only GOD can come through for me. Not my work!
Are you at that stage where you know in your heart that GOD has ordained great things for you; but it looks as if there are so many problems? Well, that is not strange. Paul says that, ‘For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries (1 Corinthians 16: 9 KJV).’ Moreover, JESUS mentions that ‘And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force (Matthew 11: 12 KJV 2000).
Therefore, if you are going to be great or GOD has a great plan for your life and destiny, GOD’s Plan for your life will be contested. Some unnecessary problems (also known as momentary and light troubles – 2 Corinthians 4: 17) will arise. But, remember the GOD you serve, and hang on to HIS Word, and don’t give up without a fight, and you will see GOD come through for you. It is written, they who know their GOD shall do exploits (:). If you don’t know your GOD, don’t have HIS Word as a Sword to defend yourself, and your faith as a Shield, you could be lost in the momentary troubles that arise to distract you from GOD’s Plan.
The point: GOD has great things in store for you, but remember, that what HE has done is permanent. No power, agent, personality, problem, or structure can add to or subtract from GOD’s Plan for your life and destiny. May you prosper in all you lay your hands upon to do in JESUS’ Name!
Finally, is there something or someone beautiful GOD has given you? Don’t worry, for what GOD has done shall last forever; nothing can be added to it or taken away from it.
May the LORD bless the study of HIS Awesome Word in JESUS’ Name!
