IT’S NOT TOO LATE!
No matter what challenge you may be facing today, please be encouraged that it’s never too late because we serve a God who raises the dead! This is what we are celebrating this month- the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, JESUS!! HE IS RISEN! The enemy thought he had won. But JESUS CONQUERED DEATH, HELL AND THE GRAVE and ROSE IN TRIUMPH! Because of Christ’s VICTORY, we ALWAYS WIN in HIM! In prayer today, I was prompted to remind you, “Don’t believe the liar!” There are 2 major lies the enemy uses to stop us from choosing God’s Word and His ways:
Joel 3:14 explains why the enemy uses these lies so effectively in people’s lives: “Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the LORD is near...” Notice the Lord says it twice here, MULTITUDES, Multitudes. When He repeats something, it is significant. This means a GREAT, indefinite number of people are making decisions right NOW to serve the Lord or to go their own way. The enemy whispers these lies to deceive them so that they reject the Lord’s promises of salvation, deliverance and abundance. This is the purpose for “On the Road to Freedom.” That they would know The Truth that would set them free!
For 20 years we have believed God for TV ministry. Last year, the Lord opened a wide door of opportunity and instructed us that NOW was the time to produce our first TV show. It was exciting but I’ll admit that, at age 73 it was not the project I was expecting!! Usually, you tackle something like this when you’re in your 30’s or 40’s. My natural mind was tempted to wonder if it was too late (and I was too old) for a vision this big. But I knew God had done this before! He promised Abraham in his old age that he would be the father of many nations and that his wife Sarah, who was way past child bearing years, would bear him his first son. Their powerful testimony is written in the Word so that generation after generation would know that nothing is impossible with our God! Romans 4:19-21 says that Abraham: "And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.”
Notice that Abraham did not consider his or Sarah’s own body, the natural circumstance. They chose to believe the promise of God, when it was absolutely impossible in the natural! Isaac was born and the promise was fulfilled. In Hebrews chapter 11, God calls them HEROES of FAITH! We can rise up and become super-Heroes of Faith!
Please be encouraged today that it’s NEVER too late with our God! God REDEEMS THE TIME! To redeem time, is “to be diligent and active in duty and preparation.” Or “To rescue, recover, regain possession of…” God created and controls TIME. He proved with Abraham and Sarah that TIME does not hinder His promises from coming to pass. He will help us redeem the time by making the most of every day before He returns AND He will also recover any time that we lost due to sin, ignorance or the enemy’s attacks. He is a GOOD God! Joel 2:25 says, “So I will RESTORE (repay, replace, give you back what you lost, make up to you) the YEARS that the locust has eaten…”
The Creator of Time taught us in Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, A TIME for every PURPOSE under heaven” This lets us know that we have seasons in life, times that are set in each of our lives for His purpose. They will all come to pass in HIS perfect timing for “He has made everything beautiful in its time.” (Ecc. 3:11) One thing I have learned in 38 years of serving God is that we can not hurry God’s perfect timing. This is why it is so important to remember how Abraham stayed strong in faith. As he was waiting for the promise to be fulfilled, “He gave praise and glory to God.” So let’s make the choice to “Bless the Lord at ALL TIMES...” Times of challenge or times of ease. Let’s start now! Please take a moment and say with me, “Lord, I trust you. My life and times are in your hands. I believe you are redeeming the time for me, even restoring years that I lost due to sin and bad choices. I will bless you Lord at ALL times for I am fully convinced that You will keep Your Word because You are honest!”
