[Psa 45:1-8 KJV My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever. Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee. Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.]
I have no sad stories, disappointment yes, lost expectations yes; God is still on the throne…All things worked and still work for my good, that is why I have no sad stories.
God is working for this body and this truth. He has no forsaken just because you don’t see it happening the way you perceived it to happen. His ways are higher, His thoughts are higher, He is doing a better thing. But when you’re carnal everything looks impossible, like an obstacle. But when you walk in the spirit, we can put the oil of gladness by quoting the scriptures. Use the word it doesn’t fail. We can cry or speak the word in power over our thoughts and our situations. God is working ALL things for our good.
[Phl 4:8 KJV Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.]
Think on these things!!!
The flesh goes straight to the negative, sad story…pity me, woe is me…problems. Come on this is a ploy, speak to the serpent and let him know you have NO SAD STORIES. You have testimonies of God working it out for good. Speak it! Get out of the pit.
The word always has an answer, an example to show you how to get out of the pit.
Two disciples on their way to Emmaus, why, because things didn’t go as planned. The one they thought would become King is dead. Their expectation, hope of the future, their ideas and plans were crushed…. What did God do? He showed up…[Luk 24:17 And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?] WHY ARE YOU SAD? What is coming out of your mouth???
Daniel was thrown in the pit, 2 things: 1 didn’t stop praying 2 came up out of it with “Oh king live forever, my God has delivered me. No sad story here!!! God showed up in the loins den and a better result came forth, No one better speak a word against the God of Daniel. [Daniel 6]
[Gen 50:15, 20 KJV And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, Joseph will peradventure hate us, and will certainly requite us all the evil which we did unto him. ... 20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.] When you’re not doing right you get scared. But Joseph’s answer was, God showed up and worked it all out for good.
[Job 1:20-21 KJV Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.] I have a greater expectation than this situation. God is good!
Jesus in the garden Gethsemane
[Luk 22:42, 44 KJV 42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. ... 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. [Jhn 18:4-6 KJV Jesus therefore, knowing all things that should come upon him, went forth, and said unto them, Whom seek ye? They answered him, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus saith unto them, I am he. And Judas also, which betrayed him, stood with them. As soon then as he had said unto them, I am he, they went backward, and fell to the ground.] Jesus knew what was coming. He won the battle on His knees and met the trail head on. Just like David ran toward Goliath, Jesus walked right out and faced it. WHY??? Because there’s NO SAD STORIES IN GOD.
Paul said it like this; I press toward the mark…I have fought a good fight…. A crown of righteousness is waiting for me and to all them that love His appearing. If anyone should have a story of praise, it’s us… I was glad when they said unto me, let us go to the house of the Lord…The Lord will not withhold any good thing to them that walk uprightly.
