God’s determination, shall be done

Beloved, those that have God as their King and deliverer need not fear who or what will be against them. He that makes God his habitation and refuge is sure his protection is secured. True believers are precious in God’s sight, and God delighted in them above any people. Though they may go through fire and water, yet, while they have God with them, they need fear no evil or harm. And because it is God that sustains them, they are rest assured that whatever He may determine for them must not be to their ruin but rather will advance their good course.
Isaiah 43: 10 says, “Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me”
We are all witnesses to the fact that the Almighty God is the true God. There is no being before Him nor shall any continue after Him. The Lord is God from everlasting to everlasting. He is the beginning and the end. He is the first, and the last, and beside Him there is no God. He originated the whole plan of salvation, blessing and curses, and He alone will determine their closure. He determined the formation of the world, and He alone will wind up its affairs. In the beginning, the continuance, and the end, He alone will be recognised as the same being presiding over and controlling all.
Beloved, since all determination of man is under His discretion, it is prudent therefore that we must submit in totality to Him and allow Him to determine what is good for us. For we cannot do anything without Him, neither can we own anything without His permission.
John 15: 4- 5 says, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. 5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing”.
As all spiritual fruitfulness had been ascribed to the mutual inhabitation, and active interpenetration of the power of God, it is essential that we keep this vital connection to continue in fruitfulness. We must abide in Him by keeping His words, living a holy life by having all our conversation right. We are dead, fruitless branches, without Christ in our life. The whole history of the world demonstrates that fruitfulness is only found in union with Christ. When we submit to Him, we will receive every help and influence from Him that our souls can require, in order to be preserved and saved.
For as the branch, however good in itself, cannot bear fruit from itself, through its own juice, which it has already derived from the tree, and can be no longer supported than it continues in union with the parent stock, neither can we, unless we abide in Him. As the branch partakes of the nature of the tree, is nourished by its juice, and lives by its life.

so we must be made partakers of His Divine nature, be wise in His wisdom, powerful in His might, and pure through His holiness, for God can do without man, but man cannot do without God.

Jer. 29: 11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end”

God has a good thought for you this year. He has determined to save, deliver and bless you and nothing shall hinder Him. This deliverance will not depend upon your merits, but upon His own mercy, and kind thoughts and purposes. As we march into the New Year, I want to assure you that God who has allowed you to see the end of this Year has determined to bless you and make your enemy submit to you, and that shall be done in Jesus name.
