easy to think that that's the way it's always going to be i'll always struggle with this addiction i'll always have to deal with this depression i'll always be at the same level i'll never break out of the run do something great but just because it seems permanent to us that is permanent to god god doesn't allow you to get into anything that he can't bring it out of even if it was your own fault you brought the trouble on god wouldn't have allowed it if he didn't have a way out he knew how to get you out of the trouble before you go the trouble he knows the end from the beginning he had the solution even before you had the problem then they look to you like it's never going to change but god is saying is temporary you're coming out of that sickness you're coming
of chronic pain you come out of loneliness that debt that addiction that legal trouble is not going to last forever it didn't come to stay it came to pass i have already made a way of escape he's already planned you're coming out party is just a man a time before you see the breakthrough that hearing the the restoration to new level listen joe that god has set an end to the difficulty he has said an end to that trouble god is the owl and the omega the beginning and the end he's already set an end to the sickness and into the addiction and into that injustice at work europe coming out day has already been established now when thoughts tell you never going to change you might as well accept it this is as good as it gets no you have to remind yourself
always be lonely god has set an end to this loneliness he's bringing somebody great into my life not always struggle in my finance is god has set an end to this lack he has promotion increase abundance come in my way or this child this of course is not always going to cause me heartache the creator of the universe the one who spoke whirls into existence has already decided the final day or maybe this addiction these bad habits i'm going to hinder me my whole life god is already put the end on his calendar my time is coming freedom holness victory is in my future
ass what happened to a young lady i met she'd been a cocaine attic for fourteen years she knew it was destroying her health her family her future she was about to lose her job again and she done everything she could in her own stream to try to quit gone through counselling and treatment with no success and she wasn't i quote religious person she didn't grow up in church like me but she watched us on television every morning she started praying god please help me do this on my own god i need you simply acknowledging god the scripture says call out to god and he will answer you after month went by she didn't see any sign of a change she continued struggling but one morning while she was praying she this warmness come all over her she couldn't explain it she said i felt such a p
such a joy that i begin to weep and weep she sat there weeping it was like that was cleansing her eye healing was taking place from that moment forward she never had a desire for cocaine she didn't have to go through withdrawals she didn't have to gradually get off of it instantly that addiction was broken i saw her about six months later in the lobby she looks like a different person she was very thin and fragile before she gained weight back or ski she had this beautiful smile so radiant what happened she came in to the end date set by the creator of
universe if you will stay in faith there will come a point where god says enough is enough that's my son that's my daughter i didn't create them to live with addictions with sickness in like mediocrity being taken advantage of i created them to be the tories to be healthy to be free to lynn and not borrow god may have allowed it but he wouldn't you get into it if he couldn't bring you out of it he's already set the into the sickness to the legal problem to the family situation to the struggle you don't know that end date could be today it could be this week happened this month what if you knew that on august 22nd of this year that was the final day god set for the difficulty drag around discouraged thinking all man i never get any good
i'll never get over this illness know you'd go out each morning with a spring in your step a smile on your face talkin like it was going to happen acted like it was going to happen that's faith is all about you got to believe it before you see it you got to act like it's true shuffle you see any sign of it happening somebody asked you are you still dealing with that sickness are you still under the weather don't give them a twenty minute update of everything wrong with you how bad the medical report was your answer should be yes i'm still dealing with it but can i tell you i'm coming out i'm getting better god is restoring health unto me the number of my days he will fulfill what are you still struggling unanswered you're still in debt yes i'm still there but i'm coming out it's only temporary i will lend and not borrow are you with that same company that same position
i thought you wanted to do something better yes i'm still there but i'm coming out my new job is on the way god is opening doors that no man can tell you've got to get in agreement with god he say where you are is not where you're saying you're coming out of the drought into abundance you coming out of fear and worry in the piece you're coming out of depression in the joy you're coming out of constant struggle bad breaks into the face of god you may not see how it can happen but don't believe those lies the indeed has already been said david put it this way though i walk through the valley of the shadow of death he didn't say i stay in the valley i build my house in the valley i'm stuck in
valley he said in effect i'm coming out of this valley the valley is temporary you're supposed to go through it that is not your permanent home if you let it become permanent in your thinking it will keep you from your destiny and every one of us is going through something a health issue financial difficulty struggle at work too often we settle in the valley and think all man i'll always struggle joel i'll always have this back pain i'll always have stripe and division in my family that's just who we are we put our steaks down build our house in the valley i'm asking you to do what david did pack up your belongings pull up your stakes the valley is not your home you are just passing through you are not a citizen of the valley you don't belong there you illegal
in the valley you are not a citizen of debt you are not a citizen of a cancer you are not a citizen of mediocrity that's a temporary position you may be there for a season but the girl whose is your day of departure has already been set already purchased your ticket that you may be in the valley of sickness right now the medical report doesn't look good but take heart your ticket says you are headed for health your ticket says you will live and not die you made in the valley of struggle lack not enough but your ticket says you are headed to more than enough to overflow
maybe you're in the valley of loneliness you don't have much company stay encouraged your ticket says divine connections are coming new friendship the right people perhaps you in the valley of disappointment something didn't work out went through a break up business didn't make it a friend betrayed you don't stay discouraged don't let the self pity and bitterness take root that is not your final nation your ticket says beauty for ashes you take it says what was meant for your harm god we used to do it then if you will be a prisoner of hope zacharias god will bring you out with twice what you had before he'll pay you back for the unfair things that have happened friend of mine recently lost her father she was very close to her dad and it's really difficult on her she's in the van right now grieving that lost what i want us to see is we're not
stay in the valley weeping endure for a night but joy is coming in the morning your tickets new beginnings now don't get stuff in the valley don't put your steaks down in the disappointment the lost the heartache thinking you seen your best days psalm eighty four says passing through the valley of weeping you'll find pools a blessing that means when you're in the valley if you'll stay in faith knowing that god has you in the palm of his hand god will take your tears and turn them into pools to refresh you don't have the strength you need every situation genesis fifteen god told abraham i'm sending your people the israelites into a foreign land they will slave there for four hundred years afterwards they will come out with great substance what's interesting is god is the one that sent them into
every he said i'm taking you into a place that's going to be difficult if that was the end of the story that does not like a good deal we thank god don't do me any favours the truth is that set back was a set up for god to do something greater god brought them out with great substance with more than they had before when you go through a difficulty a disappointment you may not understand it but god wouldn't have allowed it not only if he couldn't get you out but gods going too take it one step further and bring it out with great substance better off than you were before a friend of mine young man he recently had his car stolen
we not only in the morning to go to school in his car wasn't there this was the first car he had ever owned his father had bought it for him they filed the police report a week went by and they didn't find the car now the weak and another from time to time i would ask father have they found your son's car yet he would say no but we're not worried we know in control he's fighting our battles you'll make our wrongs right that's six weeks later the insurance company paid them for the car because it was never found the young man he would go buy another used car like he had before but god never brings you out the same if you'll stay in faith he'll bring you out greater substance greater joy greater peace greater resources his father very nice high end sports car he kept it perfect look brand new one day a friend of his father
called his father and said hey come over to my house i want to give you something this father and help this man from time to time he thought he was going to buy his dinner or do something nice like that but this man gave his father one of the most expensive top of the line luxury cars made today couldn't believe he was a he felt well i don't need must forge car anymore so he got it all cleaned up all detailed gave it to his son here's how god works before the car was stolen the young man had a car payment after it was stolen the insurance company had paid off that car had no payment plus he and his father both had better cars that car being stolen was a setup forgot to bring them out with great substance psalm sixty six says we went through the fire through the flood but you brought us to a place of great a bun
you may be in the far right now you may be in the in the famine we'll get ready your next step is great above god's going to do more than you can ask or think the fact is god could have kept the car from being stolen god he controls the whole universe when you go through a difficult when you faced a bad break you may not send it you may not like it but god i have allowed it unless ultimately he was going to use it to your advantage it's a setup forgot to do something greater in exodus fourteen when god told moses to tell pharaoh to let the people go your says that god harden faye woes hard and caused him to say now here god was one that told him to let the people go yet god wanted whero to say no it goes on to say i have play
this so i will receive great glory at the expense of pharoah there are enemy god will allow into your life not to defeat you not to you miserable but so that god can receive great glory every time i see my friends new car i think to myself look what the lord has done you may be in a tough time but when god brings you out when you beat the cancer wing the addiction when your marriage is restored when you pay your house off when you're put your dreams everyone will know it wasn't just you it was the favor of god wants to show out in your life he wants to make you an example of his goodness but we pray god keep me out all the difficulties
god don't let me face any opposition but if that happened number one we wouldn't grow like we should our character is developed in the tough time that's when our faith is tested and strengthen and number two if we never had obstacles to overcome if we never faced impossible situations we wouldn't see the greatness of god we have difficulties lot of times we think all man why is this happening to me what am i doing wrong no umaine be doing anything wrong god just morning show out in your life he may want to use that situation to bring him great glory one time
the song man that have been blind since birth his disciples asked him who sinned this man or his parents jesus said nobody send he was born this way so that the glory of god might be saying jesus touched his eyes killed him brought him out of blindness for the rest of his that man was a testimony to the goodness of god when the houston city council members voted for us to have this facility we had work turn it for nearly two years it was a dream come true we were so excited but a week later a company filed a lawsuit to try to keep us from moving in this company was the largest taxpayer in texas first thought was god this is impossible will never win this lawsuit this company issues they've got more money more resources more experience it was david vs
one day i was reading this passage in exodus fourteen it says when i get through with payroll all of egypt will know that i am the lord i could hear i can hear god saying to me right down here stay in phase and when i give you that building everyone will know it is the lord your god this building is a testimonies of the greatness of our god we can all say look what the lord has done your situation may look impossible like ours did the obstacle looks too big the sickness bad the business too slow the marriage too far gone go get ready you're a prime candidate for god to show himself strong god specializes in cases that look too big impossible no chance that way when he turns it around you will give him great glory at the expense of
enemies the scriptures is god calls to faye row to harden his heart that tells me that guy is in control even of our enemies when satan wanted to test job he had to ask god for permission to even touch in in the book of acts when saul was persecuting the church he had to get permission from chief priest to arrest believers and he was headed to the maska with papers in hand thinking i've got permission to make their lives miserable i got permission to bring them down as he was traveling a bright light shine down from heaven knock them off horse he fell flat on his back what's my point even though he had permission god stopped it there are times when god will give the enemy permission to test us the enemy has papers in hand but just like with
all god will stop it that young lady addicted to cocaine fourteen years god said that's it i'm stop it god can stop the cancer stop the addiction stop the legal situation every one of us can look back and see towns where we know god i was on the freeway one time in my twenties and it was raining really hard and i lost control of my car started spinning around and around the one point i looked up and i was gone wrong direction on the freeway eighteen wheeler right in front of me look like i could reach out and touch its front grill just a few feet away my life flashed i thought that's it i'm done but god doesn't let you get into some that he can't bring it out of that truck should have run over me
the enemy had the papers in hand but god said no i'm going to use this to show my power in a great away god stopped it somehow this means the driver pulled over to the side of the where i was he looked like he'd seen a ghost his first words what or you must be live in right he told how he felt like a big gust of wind picked up his whole rig and move one lane over just in the nick of time what am i saying whatever comes against you god can stop it he can stop the accident stop the addiction stop the family trouble the enemy is not going to have the last laugh david said in psalm one hundred and twenty nine from my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me but they have never been able to
wish me off can i tell you that difficulty is not going to finish you off that bad break that disappointment that sickness is not the end god has the final say and he's saying you're coming out with greater substance fuel coming out better off than you were before i read about a small fish called the moses sole it's a little flounder that's found over in the red sea there are also sharks in those waters and typically those sharks would eat this the fish but in the nineteen seven these researchers discovered something interesting about the moses sole all the other in the same category same size same way they would be the sharks but the sharks could not eat the moses sole it because it has a unique defense system when it senses any
danger it naturally release is poisonous toxins from his glance those toxins literally caused the sharks jaws to freeze they showed a picture of this moses soul swimming inside the shark mile off the shelf had to do was bite down and there was dinner the only problem was the shark couldn't do it god put something on this little fish to protect it as long as the shark was there it couldn't close his mouth it had to go away for a few seconds before its jaws would be released the same way as a child of the most high god has put something on you where you cannot be defeated at times it may look like those jaws are going to close down the medical report isn't good business the odds are against you but i i said no weapon against you will ever prosper
form it may look impossible but the good news is god will stop it it's not going to prosper that's what david said my enemies cannot finish me off stay in god you got your back he's fighting your battles he's done it in the past and he'll do it again in the future the three hebrew teenagers shed wreck reject abednego refuse to bow down to king nebuchadnezzar golden idle he was furious he was going to have them thrown into a fiery furnace i'm sure they prayed god please keep us out of the fire god is dangerous we can be killed in there they wanted god to do it one way but god chose to do it another way sometimes god will deliver you from the fire other times god will make you fireproof
take you through the fire those teenagers had their hands and feet bound with cords they were thrown into the furnace look like it was over look like they were done but god never let you get into something that he can't be out there we think that far burned off were the cords we're holding them back the king came to check on them look through the window in the furnace couldn't believe it he asked the guards we throw three men in here bound assay for me loose and one looks like the son of the living god king nebuchadnezzar said we're all going to worship the god of shadrach meshach and abednego friends your enemies cannot finish you off they don't have the final say god you may feel like you're in the fire right now you don't you're way out stay encouraged
where you are is not permanent its temporary you're coming out not the same but better with great abundance when you come out all of your family friends and enemies will know the favor of god on your life you're going to be a living testimony of god's goodness i remember the end of the difficulty has already been said the end of the trouble the lack the addiction the final date has already been established the good news is it could happened this week get up every morning thanking god that is on the way you'll do this i believe and declare you coming out of sickness you're coming out of depression you're coming out of a dick you coming out of the lack and struggle the tide of the battle is turning you might as well start planning your coming out party like
