Topic: DIVINE SUBSTITUTION
Text: “The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.”
Proverbs 11:8 KJV
Beloved today is the 365th day out of 366 days and this leaves us with only one day to the end of this peculiar and remarkable year. A lot of people will be wondering now how the year will end for them i.e. Whether in their favour or otherwise in view of the uncertainties that the pandemic and lock down left with us . The economic recession and insecurity everywhere while the latest of them all is the 2nd wave of the coronavirus which some people are not even taking seriously despite the fact that we hear of confirmed cases every day. As much as we are praying, we must take all necessary precautions and observe all the guidelines to protect ourselves. Like our Daddy G.O said , it is a “noisome pestilence” May it not come near us in Jesus name.
The word of God says in Matthew 6:34c “ sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof “ This means that each day comes with its own evil and because the world is full of wickedness, there is no under estimating what the enemy can do. There are still 1 more day to end the year and they both carry their evil. However, the Bible says , No evil shall befall us neither shall any plague come near our dwelling and only with our eyes we shall see the reward of the wicked for as long as we dwell in the secret place of the most high. Isaiah 54:17 says that no weapon formed against us shall prosper. The enemy can only try but will not get us in Jesus name.
I want to encourage us this morning that as children of God we have nothing to fear because GOD will always make a way of escape for us by DIVINE SUBSTITUTION.
Please decree and declare it before we continue that whether the enemy or evil forces of darkness like it or not THIS YEAR 2020 WILL END VERY WELL for you and your loved ones in Jesus name.
Psalm 65:11 says the Lord will crown the year with His goodness and His path will drop fatness. This shall be your portion and mine in Jesus name .
WHAT IS DIVINE SUBSTITUTION?
We are all familiar with the word Divine which is something proceeding from God while a dictionary definition of the word substitution says it means
1. “ to put (a person or thing) in place of another”
2. “ to take the place of” or
3. “to replace”
This is exactly what God the father, our creator did, when He sent our Lord Jesus Christ His son to earth to die for the sins of mankind. GOD gave His son’s life on the cross in exchange for our soul. Man was dead in trespasses but Jesus’ life was given to redeem his soul from eternal condemnation.
Brethren, if GOD could give His righteous son to die in place of unrighteous mankind what more can He not do to give the wicked in the stead of His ransomed children as our text for today says in Proverbs 11:8 “The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.”
If you are on the Lord’s side you can rest, assured of a DIVINE SUBSTITUTION whenever danger looms. When the year is about to end like this, there is always a lot of fear and tension in the heart of men. For instance, Many have lost their lives this year and many are still going to die in the next few days to close the year; because the devil is still going about like a roaring lion looking for whom to devour but we and our loved ones shall not be his prey neither shall we be in the in the statistics of the dead for year 2020 in Jesus name. Why? because the Bible says in Psalm 118:17 that we shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord in the land of the living.
And if there’s anyone or forces of darkness or any power plotting evil against you or planning your downfall they will end up in shame because the Almighty God will make SUBSTITUTIONS in your favour in Jesus name.
For everyone who have lost friends and family members this year I pray the Lord continue to comfort and fill the vacuums in their lives in Jesus name.
Beloved, God is ever ready to substitute the wicked for your life , just as He says in Isaiah 43:4 “since thou was precious in my sight, thou has been honorable and I have loved thee : therefore will I give men for the and people for thy life”
This morning, I pray for you in the name that is above all other names that your life will be precious in the sight of God and may you always be His delight.
Nobody will use your life nor the lives of your loved ones to settle any scores as this year is ending and if they try it, they will fail woefully because there will be a Divine Substitution in Jesus name.
In Isaiah 49:24-25, the Lord says even if you are a lawful captive , He will deliver you and contend with anyone that contends with you and save your children. May His mercy speak for you in Jesus name.
Also, Isaiah 54:17 says “ No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn, this is your inheritance and your righteousness is of the Lord.
Is there any tongue rising in judgment against you anywhere, in your family or any contention over your elevation in your work place, the Lord will silence them forever and You will receive a last minute congratulations on your promotion in Jesus name.
Per adventure there is any evil lurking around you or your loved ones , the Lord will rescue you from every last minute evil or disaster programed for the remaining days of this year in Jesus name. I decree and declare, “There shall be DIVINE SUBSTITUTION in the mighty name of Jesus.” Every evil load carrier will carry their load in Jesus name.
*Let us look at a few Biblical Examples where Divine Substitution took place: *
•Haman died instead of Mordecai in Esther 7:10. He was buried in the gallows he built for Modecai the Jew. Concerning you and I , I decree and declare whoever digs a pit, will find themselves in it and whoever rolls a stone at you it shall go back to them in Jesus name.
• The accusers of Daniel ended up in the den of Lions in Daniel 6:24. They became prey to the teeth of the lions they thought would eat Daniel.
•Joseph’s Brothers bowed to him in Genesis 44:14. Because of envy they ended up bowing to their brother.
I decree , Your enemy will bow for you in Jesus name.
•Pharaoh’s army ( stubborn pursuers) perished in the Red Sea in Exodus 14:27-28 as the Lord fought for His people. I decree victory for you over all unrepentant enemy in Jesus name.
I pray for you and I that for your sake and mine the Lord rebuke every troublers of our lives, His church and our nation this season in Jesus name; and for Everyone planning evil for you and I may they fail woefully in Jesus name.
Brethren, we are not ignorant of the devices of the enemy , therefore , if you want to continue to enjoy Divine Substitution here is
What to do:
1.Praise and worship God Like never before. Psalm 34:1
2.Cry out to Him in serious prayers without ceasing. I Thes 5:17
3. Commit your ways into His hands and let His wisdom guide you . Proverbs 3: 5-6
4. Make prophetic utterances and decree over your life. Job 22:28
5. Submit always to God and Vehemently resist the devil and his agents and he will flee from you. James 4:7
6. Tell others about His glorious power. Tell of His goodness by sharing your testimonies. Psalm 89:1
7. Constantly Win souls for Him. Mark 16:15
In conclusion, the Bible says in Psalm 125:3 “ THE ROD OF THE WICKED SHALL NOT REST UPON THE LOT OF THE RIGHTEOUS. Brethren I pray for you and I that as we draw the curtain to end this remarkable year to cross over into the new year, the Lord will make daily divine substitutions for us in our sitting and rising up, in our sleeping and waking up; nothing shall be missing, nothing shall be lost and nothing shall be broken concerning us and our loved ones. Our GOD is merciful, He will always make a way of escape for us.
I wish us all the best of year 2021 in Jesus mighty name. Amen
I leave us with this song in Yoruba language which says
“Odun nlo sopin o baba rere
Fi só rę so wa o taya tomo
Oun ti o pa wa lekun o lodun tuntun
Maje ko sęlę siwa o baba rere”
