CAN GOD CHANGE HIS MIND?
Exo 32:9 And the Lord said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:
10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them:
and I will make of thee a great nation.
11 And Moses besought the Lord #1# his God, and said, Lord, why doth thy wrath wax hot against thy people,
which thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power, and with a mighty hand?
12 Wherefore should the Egyptians speak, and say, For mischief did he bring them out, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.
God was so angered against the Israelites He was ready to kill them all.
It was Moses; one man in God pleading with God:
Turn from thy fierce wrath O God... and God did not consume them.
PRAYER POWER... Let our voice be heard in the Kingdom of God who waits
upon hearing from us.God knows what the future holds, we do not. We can merely speculate while God knows precisely; He is Omnipresent He knows the end from the beginning.
Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. Rom 13:1
For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.1 Cor 4:20
We count it wise to pray over future events BEFORE they are upon us,
BEFORE we are due to enter into.
He shall call upon me and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him, and honor him" Psm 91:15;
"And it shall come to pass that before they call, I will answer;
and while they are yet speaking, I will hear" Isa 65:24;
Gods Word is True He Does not lie; and prayer to Him can bring about some change,
we can soften His heart against us through prayer if we have angered Him. If prayer brought forth no change then it would be but a sweet smell of incense rising up unto the Lord with no visible change of prayers answered on our end.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock,
and it shall be opened unto you: Mat 7:7
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss,
that ye may consume it upon your lusts. James 4:3
Surely without answered prayer none could be saved.
BEWARE OF THE teaching that prayer is in vain
and that all was predestined from the beginning and so it
shall be without change from any prayer.
We can know Gods word is true and unchanging,
Revelation will be acted out upon the earth
without stop till its fulfilled.
How do we discern a difference in Gods unchanging word and prayer changes things?
We can believe IF the entire world suddenly turned from its sin and called upon the Lord Jesus to save them and be Lord and master of their lives... Revelation could not would not be fulfilled. Hence God knows via foreknowledge the hearts of men in the last days.From that point we can know Revelation will be fulfilled.
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man,
that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it?
or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Num 23:19
How then can prayer change the turn of events;
I called upon thy name, O Lord, out of the low dungeon.
Thou hast heard my voice: hide not thine ear at my breathing,
at my cry. Lam 3: 55
WEAKNESS AND BROKENNESS CAUSE US TO CRY OUT TO GOD
Our hope and trust in the Lord, as He alone is our refuge.
He delights in hearing from us. From our weakness our brokenness we cry
" I can not do this less God intervene, I alone am incapable of,
I have done all I can,I cant do it alone, I need you God"
In our weakness He is our strength.
Our strength is increased made perfect via our weakness... surely this is when God does some of His finest of works within us.
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philip 4:6
I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised:
so shall I be saved from mine enemies. 2 Sam 22:4
DRAWING NEARER THE HEART OF GOD;
But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.
But GOD HAS REVEALED them to us through His Spirit.
For the Spirit searches all things, yes,
the DEEP THINGS OF GOD.
Even so NO ONE KNOWS THE THINGS OF GOD EXCEPT
the Spirit of God. [1Co 2:9]
Spirit filled in Jesus your personal walk is unique. No one but you is walking your walk in God.
There was only one Abraham, one Moses, one David and so on. God has many children each is different, He knows them all by name, he knows exactly where they are,
how they are to how many hairs are on each of their heads.
ITS VERY PERSONAL. Growing in God, He is watching you,
waiting on you and I to draw closer to Him
that we call Him Abba Father. [Gal 4:6]
Therefore hath the Lord recompensed me according to my righteousness,
according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. [Psm 18:24
HOW CLEAN ARE OUR HANDS?
Do we have dirty hands, and eyes then cry Abba Father
help me now quickly recompense me according to my righteousness?
If our position in our spiritual growth is lacking we may find
our Father whom art in Heaven is less apt to respond to our cry.
Child of God cleanse your hands and eyes... be able to stand before the Lord with your palms upward and He see YOU ARE AFTER HIS HEART, you are following Him, you desire to walk in His will be done.
One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to ENQUIRE IN HIS TEMPLE. Psalm 27:4 [ENTER INTO HIS HOLY TEMPLE]
IS THE LORD ANGRY WITH YOU?
4 SING UNTO THE LORD, O ye saints of his, and GIVE THANKS at the REMEMBRANCE of his holiness.
5 For HIS ANGER ENDURETH BUT A MOMENT; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.. [Ps 30.4-5
As always we and formost we must WAIT UPON THE LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
wait, I say, on the Lord. [Psm 27:14]
Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength;
- they shall mount up with wings like eagles,
- they shall run and not be weary,
- they shall walk and not faint. Isa 40.28-31
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Prov 3.5-6
A quick note on the Lord directing our path. A woman was leaving a store that had two sets of exit doors. Bags in hands she used her body to press against one set of exit doors in attempt to leave. To no avail no matter how hard she pressed the doors would not open.
She looked around to another set of exit doors and pressed her body against them, they opened and she departed. This is a mirror picture of How God will direct our steps opening doors and closing doors, leading us in the paths of righteousness for His name sake.
