THE TIDE WILL TURN
BIBLE TEXT: (2 Kings 7:1 KJV)”Then Elisha said, Hear ye the word of the Lord; Thus says the Lord: Tomorrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel and two measures of barley for a shekel in the gate of Samaria!”
READ: 2Kings 6:24-31
The above Bible text is one we are all familiar with. Before this words of Prophet Elisha came, there was serious famine in the land of Samaria to the extent that people were eating their children. 2 Kings 6:28-29.
This is the worst tide that any nation or people can be going through as One dictionary definition of the word ‘TIDE’ amongst others , says, a TIDE is ‘An Extreme Or Critical Period Or Condition’.
This condition in Samaria can be likened to what some nations including ours are going through right now. People are suffering, there is hunger, pain and insecurity everywhere and there seem to be no way out.
However in our text for today there seem to be a ray of hope for the land and the people as the prophet said that on the morrow there would be surplus food in the land.
That is why I want to encourage us this morning with this message that the tide will turn for good in our lives and in this nation very soon in Jesus name.
There is hope for every man who believes that ugly situation will surely get better in the future. It is high time you believed in the plan of God for a glorious future not minding what is happening to you today. No matter what you are going through it is better to trust in God the author and finisher of your faith according to Hebrews 12:2 which says “ Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith” The word of God also in Job 14:7 says
“For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, it will sprout again, and the tender branch thereof will not cease.”
It is better to hope in God than to put any trust in man or in circumstances because the word of God says in Jeremiah 17:5 “Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” No Matter the circumstances around you, may you receive the grace to continue to trust in the the Lord in Jesus name. Amen.
There is no doubt in the fact that many people including the children of GOD are singing a song presently in their lives. The typical song of men these days includes; “there is no money, no food to eat, no good job or no job at all, no helper, down turn in business, deteriorating health, no husband/wife, no good suitor, no child/children; brethren, the list is endless. No matter how long you have been singing these unpalatable songs, if you can patiently wait on the Lord; He will surely give you a new song in Jesus name. Amen.
This is why you don’t need to be worried as a child of God; even if people have given up on you and no longer believe in what God will do with your life looking at your present situation; the Lord said, “at this set time tomorrow a measure of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel and two measures of barley for a shekel in the gate of Samaria!”( Nigeria) and so shall it be in Jesus name. Amen. Just believe it.
The Lord has programmed your miracle to a set time of His favour which is peculiar to your life. Psalm 103:12 says “Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come” . When your set time comes no one, no principality or power can altar it.
Don’t ever yield to any temptation which suggests turning away from the Lord. Believe in the plan of God for your life and future.
In 2 Chronicles 20:20 the scriptures says “….Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper.”
Brethren, It is normal for weeping to endure for a night. No matter how long the night may be, the day will surely break for new experience and beginning according to Psalm 30:5.
My brother, my sister, please live life, having this strong faith that your tomorrow will be glorious just because the Lord has said it. He is ever faithful and ever sure. Hold on to whatever promises the Lord has give you. He will surely come through for you if you hold on and the tide will turn for good in Jesus name.
WHY WILL THE TIDE TURN?
The tide will turn for the following reasons:
1). God loves you with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3 and His love compels Him to ensure that you live life purposefully. Jeremiah 29:11. He knows His thoughts towards you and that is to give you a hope and a future.
2). God commands that you should be fruitful and multiply and take dominion. Genesis 1:28. And so you must. Therefore no barrenness is permitted around you.
3). God delights in the prosperity of his children. Psalm 35:27. Therefore no poverty. 3 John 2 also says, He wishes above all things that you prosper and be in health as your soul prospers. This means You should not lack any good thing. You should be lending to nations amongst other things.
4). God wants you to enjoy good health.
In Exodus 15:26b, He says I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.
Ultimately, this means that you should not be sick. Healing should be your bread.
5). God says He will never leave you nor forsake you. Hebrews 13:5. Also in Psalm 23:4 He says even though you walk through the valley of the shadow of death He will be with you. He is a promise keeper so whatever He says He’ll do, He will surely do.
God needs you to shine for Him Isaiah 60:1, so that your life can attract others to His kingdom. Matthew 28: 19-20. God wants to use you for His glory so If you must preach the gospel your life must be a wonder to others . Psalm 71:7
Brethren God is very interested in our wellbeing that is why we must live a life that is pleasing to Him at all times.
His word says in Proverbs 16:7 that if our ways are pleasing to Him He will make even our enemies to be at peace with us. He will fight for us and we will hold our peace. Exodus 14:14
Even if for any reason the enemy comes like a flood, He will raise a standard against him. Isaiah 59:19. God is ready to fight for His obedient children. No Matter how boisterous the tide is, God is able to calm every storm and turn every captivity around for your good if you don’t despair. Your situation may seem so hopeless now but I want to encourage you to:
(1). Keep praying without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17
(2). Study and meditate upon the word of God day and night. Joshua 1:8
(3). Do not forsake the gathering of the saints . Hebrews 10:25 and
(4). Serve Him as best as you can. Romans 12:11, particularly in the area of soul winning then wait and see how the Lord will turn the tide around in your favor.
Psalm 126:1-5 says
When the LORD turned a again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them. The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad. Turn again our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the south. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.”
This shall be your portion and mine this season in Jesus name.
I pray for you this morning that as the Lord, through the prophet Elisha sent the word of consolation to His people, He will do the same in your life and in our nation. Every wilderness experience will come to an end because THE TIDE WILL TURN. The Lord will renew your experience for good in Jesus mighty name.
As I close I leave us with this song in my mother tongue that goes thus:
Oba tonilę wa rin lę mi koja 2ce
Rin ilę mi koja kaiye mi ko di otun
Rin ilę mi koja kaiye mi koni itunmo
Oba tonilę wa rinlę mi koja.
The king that owns the earth/land please walk through my land(way)
Walk through my land (way) so that my life will be renewed,
Walk through my land (way) so that my life will be meaningful.
The owner of the earth please walk through my land (way).
May God Almighty walk through our way and as he passes may lines fall unto us in pleasant places (turning the tide ) so that our lives can be meaningful in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
*Father, in the name of Jesus, I thank you for your good thoughts towards me and your plan for my future.
*Father, please turn every sorrow to joy, weeping to laughter and mourning to dancing in my life in Jesus name.
*Father, please turn the tide around for my good, give me a new experience so that the heathen will know that you are my GOD in Jesus name.
*Father, all that I have ever sowed in tears, let me reap in joy in Jesus name.
*Father, I want to eat the good of the land, please let this season be the set time to favor me in Jesus name.
Good morning brethren. Have a blessed midweek.
