The promise for the month of December is found in Joel 2:26. Pastor Paul Dawson reminds us all, through this sermon that God has dealt wondrously with us. If it weren’t for His kindness, we would be utterly destroyed. Listen, claim and decree this promise over your life and lives of your loved ones.
GOD HATH DEALT WONDERFULLY
In this new month we look forward to the reigning anointing operating in the church. We have no words to utter about the faithfulness and goodness of God. The promise for this month is Joel 2:26 which says, “…The LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you:….” This is what God spoke.
Notice here that it doesn’t say the God who is going to deal wondrously with you. The tense is very important so pay attention to it. It is the God who has dealt wondrously with you. In Psalm 115:15 also we read, “Ye are blessed of the LORD which made heaven and earth.” It doesn’t say that you are going to be blessed. You are already blessed. You were blessed even when you were in your mother’s womb. When you came into the world, you were blessed. While living till date, you were blessed.
God who made the heavens and earth shows us how big a blessing is on our heads. It is truly an amazing blessing and you must consider it. That is why God says I dealt wondrously with you.
You can now say, “But I didn’t see all these things in my life, Pastor.” That is because you never understood this Word. Sadly, many go to the grave without ever understanding it. If you really understood that you were blessed even in your mother’s womb, your life would have been very different.
The Bible in Psalm 139:14 reveals that you were fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14 says, “I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” You were not blessed, after you were born. Even before you were born, God blessed you. You didn’t know about it then but you were blessed. You even came out fearfully and wonderfully blessed. The amazing works of God are that you were fearfully and wonderfully made. It doesn’t say that you were made in India or made in USA.
The church must see herself the way God sees her. The way you see, influences your thoughts and actions. Today we need a total transformation of mind. Many things we are thinking about are unnecessary. Material things have been attracting and drawing us. The lure of materialism is on the inside of us. These thoughts have hidden the real handiwork of God. That is why you find your life to be a struggle. Life is stressful and strained because you never understood that you were fearfully and wonderfully made. You are a marvellous work of God.
You must praise Him for He has dealt wondrously with you. Before the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, there is going to be an outpouring of glory. There are going to be so many transfers and we must be ready for that. We must learn to trust God and sacrifice. People who understand God, will sacrifice.
Joel 2:27 says, “And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and My people shall never be ashamed.” And you shall know says the Bible, what is it that you will know? That I am in the midst of Israel? No, no, it is that “I am in the midst of My people and I will do amazing things which you cannot understand.”
The Bible says that He does great things which we cannot understand. This is a wonderful Word that God has given us. It is a beautiful Word this month. From when did He deal wondrously with you? From even before you were born. You thought your parents dealt wondrously with you? No, it was God.
You never understood yet He dealt wondrously with you. From that time till now, through all of time, He did just that, dealt wondrously with you. If He hadn’t, things would have been very bad. We must praise God. You have real reason to praise God. Imagine how even without you understanding or cooperating with God, He dealt wondrously with you then how much more with you understanding and cooperating? How great will it be!
Who is that person who is willing to cooperate with God? This month is going to be the beginning of an awesome move of God.
