The word of the Lord says safety is of the Lord, there are certain battles that you can’t fight on your own, there are certain things that the government can do and there are certain things that are beyond the government but nothing is beyond God.
Lift your voice to the Almighty God:
+Father, have mercy on Nigeria; let there be peace and security.
+All things are possible with You Lord; You can see and handle all, You are the Almighty, let there be peace and security in Nigeria, have mercy Lord.
The Bible says God sees all things; you can hide from Him, He knows where the terrorists are hiding, if He send His light, He will expose them.
Lift your voice to the Almighty God:
+Father, send Your light to Nigeria and expose all the evil doers wherever they may be.
It is written, every plant my Father has not planted shall be rooted up, this morning with all your heart, cry:
+Father, uproot all those who are causing trouble in Nigeria and their sponsors.
It is written, if my people that are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, the Almighty God says I will heal their land.
Lift Your voice to the Almighty God:
+Father, we are Your people, we are called by Your name, we cry to You today, heal our land; heal Nigeria today.
There was a time when the Naira was almost equal to Pound Sterling, people were coming to Nigeria from India, Ghana and all over.
+Father, restore fully the glory of Nigeria.
Every soul is precious to God, if a christian dies, we have lost a brother/sister, if a muslim dies we have lost a potential brother.
I want you to lift your voice to the Almighty God:
+Father, in Nigeria, let there be no more death of the innocent.
We have been fasting for quite a while and it will be ending at the end of this month
I want You to lift your voice to Him from the bottom of your heart:
+Father, before this fasting ends, answer all my prayers by fire.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob
Jehovah the man of war
His mercies endureth forever and ever
Oh praise His Holy Name
King of glory, the Lord strong and Mighty, the Lord mighty in battle, the Lord who had never lost a war, the Ancient of Days, glory be to Your holy name, thank You for all You have done for us since the beginning of the year; we give You glory and honour, please accept our thanks in Jesus’ name.
Father have mercy on Nigeria; in Nigeria, let there be peace, security, joy, progress, abundance, please have mercy on Nigeria, let there be no more death, please, don’t let the innocent die anymore Almighty God, uproot all those who are behind insecurity in Nigeria, uproot every plant you have not planted in Nigeria that Your peace may reign supreme, restore the glory of this land, answer the prayers of your children who have been fasting and waiting on You by fire before the end of these 50 days fast.
Embarrass Your children who have been faithful in the payment of their tithes and giving of their offerings with blessings. Today, save souls, heal the sick, set the captives free, let us sing the songs of victory, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed.
TEXT – PSALM 18:1-3
1. I will love thee, O Lord, my strength.
2. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
3. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
+Your enemies will not overcome you.
+As the Lord lives, you will laugh last.
Man is a singing animal; we are born to sing, we have a song for every situation.
When we are happy/sad we sing, when a baby is born, when we are getting married, when we are dedicating a house …, we sing.
You can tell the situation of a man by listening to his song;
When somebody has just lost a battle he will sing “I will overcome someday…”
When the battle is hot and he wants God to help him, he will sing “Arise Oh Lord, let Your enemies be scattered …”
When he just won a battle (victorious) he will sing “Now the battle is over I’m more than a conqueror…”
+You will sing the battle is over before we leave this morning.
Song can change as situations change:
Psalm 40 The story of a man who was in trouble, cried to God, God heard and He said God put a new song in his mouth. If you were in trouble and God heard your prayer, He will give you a new song.
God can give you new song when the battle is over
Singing is automatic after a victory, Exodus 15:1-21 that was the song of the Isrealite when they looked back and saw their enemies drown.
A song in Exodus 15:11
🎺Who is like unto thee,
Who is like unto thee,
Among the gods?
Who is like thee,
Glorious in holiness,
Fearful in praises,
Doing wonders Hallelujah.
FEARFUL IN PRAISES
You will become frightening when God fights for you.
+By the time God finishes with your enemies you will be afraid.
Hannah sang a song in 1Samuel 2:1-10
We got a song in verse 2
🎸There is none holy as the Lord:
For there is none beside thee:
Neither is there any rock like our God
There is none holy as the Lord
+All those who have been saying where is your God, this morning, God will show them.
It is only men of faith that can sing songs of victory before the victory, anybody can sing after the victory but it takes men and women of faith to sing in advance of the victory.
For example, the case of Job.
Job was in serious trouble; he had lost everything he had, he was sick but he still opened his mouth said:
I know my Redeemer liveth
I know my Redeemer liveth
I know my Redeemer liveth
He liveth forever more
He was singing in deep trouble and God blessed his latter end than the former.
It takes a lot of faith to sing when you can’t see the sign of victory, For example, Acts 16:16-26 Paul and Silas, they sand so loudly that the Lord of Hosts paid them a visit.
+All of you who have been singing along with me will get a visit from God today.
WHO CAN SING THE SONG OF VICTORY BEFORE THE VICTORY?
Somebody who is sure that God is living in him, Colossian 1:27 – Christ in you the hope of glory not the hope of defeat.
1 John 4:4 – Greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world.
Roman 8:37 – We are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.
Romans 8:28 – All things work together for good to those who love God.
If you love God, Christ is dwelling in you – the Greater One is dwelling in you; you are more than conqueror.
When you are a true christian; doing the Will of God, any battle that comes your way is not yours, that is why you are sure that you are a winner from day number one, it doesn’t matter how many forces may be arranged against you, you have already won.
THE BATTLE IS NOT MINE, I’M MORE THAN CONQUEROR.
When you’re a pastor, the burden of the congregation are yours; if all is well, glory be to God, we will share the joy but if anything goes wrong, they will point at the pastor.
When you are connected to Jesus Christ, He will scatter the enemies before they start.
+Today, somebody will sing a song of victory.
PRAYER FOR SALVATION
If Jesus is not in you, you don’t have the hope of glory and you can’t sing the songs of victory.
If you have not given Your life to Jesus and you want to sing the song of victory, come and surrender to Jesus now, the choice is yours; if you want to be more than a conqueror, Christ must be in you, you must have the greater One dwelling in you to sing the songs of victory, there is no other way. The choice is yours; either to be a victor or a victim, you must have Christ dwelling in you to be a victor.
Talk to the Almighty God: ask Him to be merciful unto you, save your soul, live in you, receive you into His family so that you can be more than a conqueror. Tell Him to forgive your sins and promise to serve Him for the rest of your life.
Let’s stretch our hands to our new brothers and sisters, intercede for them, let’s pray that the One who saved our souls will save theirs also, pray that God will wash them clean from all sin with His blood and give them a brand new beginning, intercede for them brethren.
Thank You Jesus, thank You Father, blessed be Your holy name Lord, thank You Saviour.
King of kings and Lord of lords, the Saviour of mankind, I thank You for Your word; please, accept our thanks in Jesus’ name, I thank You for Your children who have come forward to surrender their lives to You, please, receive them in Jesus’ name, save their souls, let Your blood wipe away their sins, write their names in the book of life, receive them into the family of God, and from today onward, make them more than conquerors, answer them by fire anytime they call on You and let them serve you till the end, in Jesus’ mighty name we have prayed.
We are going to praise God like Paul and Silas, we are going to praise Him in advance for victory, praise Him so mightily so that He will locate you where you are and before you walk out of here your enemies will be scattered.
+Stand and shout a big Hallelujah.
+Praise God in your own way; give Him glory and honour, sing unto Him, dance unto Him clap unto Him, praise Him until He locates you and your enemies will be scattered.
