The Mighty Hand of God

Text: Deu 7 vs 12-14

Mighty hand of God – Gods Ability and willingness to intervene in the affairs of man or God’s s power at work through the life of a man, What God does in our life and through our life.

It is the power and grace of God at work in our lives

Deut. 7 vs 12-14 admonishes us to be Humble under the mighty hand of God

When we humble ourselves, he can perform his work through our life

How does God work/ How does his hand manifest

2Chron 30vs 12-13- hand of God on Judah,

  • His hand unites a people to do the will of God
  • His hand provides Phil 4vs 19, Psalm 23 vs 2

Neh 1 vs 2, we should be available for God to use us

  • His hand is available to empower us- Heb 1vs 9-10

God works on us and through us to bring his will to perfection

  • His hand sends help- Neh 2vs 17-18
  • His hand protects us-Isaiah 51vs16, psalm 91vs3
  • His hand leads and guides us- Psalm 23 vs 3, Isaiah 8 vs 11
  • We substitutes the hand of God with religion thereby missing Gods favor, we should not substitute the hand of God for token things such as anointing oil, handkerchief etc

His Mighty hand is willing to work for us so far we are willing to hand over all to him

My Help

Text: Psalm 40 vs 1-2

Help is to do something that makes it easier for someone.It means making endeavors easier for another,to give assistance or support to another party. To provide for someone with what is useful or necessary for meeting an end or an objective.

Psalms 22 vs 19- there was a recognition of the source of help-God
Psalm 108 vs 12- man has been eliminated as the source of help. Man can only assist to the extent of his ability

Whenever there is a footprint of God in your life/ situation, he is your help
2 Chron 16 vs 9

Acknowledgement of the fact that God is our help guarantees us answers to our prayers

God wants us to give him the whole of our heart, Psalm 121vs1-8
He looks at the state of our heart to see whether or not our expectations are set on him.

  • Our Confidence in God should show in the face of challenge
    Hindrances to receiving help from God
    When our heart desires are of the things of the world- Gen 19vs 12-29
  • Weight and worldly pleasures, easily besetting sin
    Pressure of work,family and other things in life, God did not bless us with these things for them to take God’s place in our lives.

We can attract God’s help by standing up for others

The Mighty Hand of God

Text: Deu 7 vs 12-14

Until there is obedience in the life of a man, the promises of God cannot be received.

Service to God makes us a peculiar treasure.

Before the mighty hand of God can work in the life of a Man, the man has to be fed up of the current situation he is in,

We have to seek the face of God, it is only those who seek that will find.

In every promise, we are suppose to ask for our role. Promises that we cannot enjoy is useless to us

  • How do we experience God/How can the hand of God move
    • Obedience : it is an action taken by choice(deliberate act) -Exodus 19vs 5
    • Love For God
    • Learn how to be resolute
    • We must make up our minds to serve God  – 1Corn 15vs 58
    • Seek the face of God
    • Holiness and righteousness- Psalm 24

Any man that God blesses, it means the hand of God is in his Life
Exodus 33vs 13-it is the knowledge of God that will determine how we will be intimate with God. If we don’t have the right knowledge of God, we will abuse the relationship we are suppose to have with him

We have to seek the face of God/ presence of God By being intimate with him
There is a release of grace when there is a decision to seek God’s face whole heartedly.

If we do not show love to God via commitment, then the task becomes laborious to us.

Service/worship is not by convenience,

Every blessing from God to us has to be returned back to him-Psalm 27 vs 4

We have to seek the face of God for Revelation.

When you seek to increase the capacity of your mind, God makes grace available.

The Mighty hand of God will save,deliver,promote,heal and liberate us in Jesus Name.
