Brethren, let the specialist do it for you.

"Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it". (1 Thessalonians 5:24 KJV)

A man was complaining bitterly to God about his life and saying, Lord why are you doing this to me? All these years I have served and committed myself to you and heaven was silent. One day the man came by his window and was looking outside and he saw a bird which came and fluttered its feathers and one of them fell off. When it fell, the bird suddenly flew away. Then God said to the man, go and pick the feather, look for the bird and fix it back. He responded and said how am I going to do that? Where am I going to find the bird? Then God said to him: "So also can you not fix your challenge, leave it in my hands because I specialize in fixing challenges."

  He is faithful and he loves you so much. He will do it! One of the things I have learnt lately is to take my hands off and let God be God. One assurance I am giving you is that you will surely testify. Just as you cannot fix back a feather that fell out of a bird, so you cannot fix anything back into your life. You cannot lay hold if you cannot let go. Keep on serving and looking up to God and he will give you a testimony.

Look at Jephthah for example, his brothers who did not understand the workings of God threw him out of their father's house because he was the son of a harlot. But when God was through with him, elders had to go and beg him to come back home. Jephthah had to determine how much he was going to be paid in order to be their captain. I declare to you by the authority of heaven, by reason of God's investment in your life, you are going to show up. You are going to manifest! The purpose of God upon your life will be revealed. Your days of frustration are over! You will not end up a minus or a disappointment. 

You will end up in the place of glory and you will rise from glory to glory.

Trust in God because he always got your back.

 God works in ways that are mysterious.

 "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding"(Proverbs 3:5 KJV)

 Sometimes God hides you, so as to make you appear later. When he hides you, don't struggle to come out. Stay hidden because he knows the exact time for you to appear.

 What good would it have been for Joseph to come out before Pharaoh dream't? It was good for Joseph to be hidden in the prison where they believed he was a criminal but in God's realm he was being hidden by God.

Jephthah was hidden by God, waiting for when the battle will be fierce in Gilead. Meanwhile in Gilead, they thought that Jephthah was already dead because no one believed in him. Though no one believed in him, God knew he was hiding him. And the scripture says in the process of time they heard in Gilead that there was a man called Jephthah and the guy was doing exploits. The news went round and they asked which Jephthah is that? And they were told that it was Jephthah the son of the Gileadite, the same guy they threw away because his mother was a harlot.

Sometimes it is difficult to trace God in adversity. When that happens just switch on to trust. To trust is to be totally committed to God even when you do not understand. It is saying I am committed even though I do not understand why. Even when you have the power to bring me out yet you leave me in there, but I will trust you. That is what Job meant when he said, though he slays me, yet will I trust him. I know my redeemer lives. When he has tried me I will come forth as gold. All the days of my life will I wait. I don't know when or how but there is something I have settled in my spirit, my change will come. Keep standing! 

Your story will change.

  God does not react. It is the devil that reacts.

"Then Jephthah fled from his brethren, and dwelt in the land of Tob: and there were gathered vain men to Jephthah, and went out with him" (Judges 11:3 KJV)

Today, I want to let you into a secret you must never forget as long as you live. 

Anytime you see the devil roaring around you know that the Lord has scored a number for you.

Why was he after male babies after Moses was born? The reason is because Moses, the deliverer of the Israelite was born and he was looking for him. But God kept him safe right in the camp of the enemy. Why did he kill children two years and below after Jesus the savior of the whole world was given birth to? It was because there was an announcement that a king was already born. Therefore, anytime the devil is roaring around you, don't focus on him, simply find out what God has done that the devil is reacting to.

It is the same reason the devil was raging in the life of Jephthah. You must understand that Jephthah did not know these things because he did not have the Bible at that time. All he knew was that his brothers suddenly threw him out of the home he had always known. But I love what Jephthah did; he realized that if he became bitter, he would not fulfill the purpose of God. This is where a lot of people miss it. Instead of growing bitter, he looked at what God had deposited in him. The Bible says that in the land of Tob where he fled to, he believed and trusted God and all the vagabonds came to him and he became captain over them.

"And it came to pass in process of time, that the children of Ammon made war against Israel." (Judges 11:4 KJV) No one was able to lead them in the battle. They then heard that the young man they drove away was doing exploits. I declare to you today that those who want you dead, who said you will never succeed, those who have written you off will hear of you and surrender to you in Jesus name.
