Be Your God’
When God says, “I will be your God,” that is a declaration that He will work miracles in your life. So if it is a miracle you need, it is a miracle you will get!
If there is a huge sea blocking the way to your blessing and God says, “I will be your God,” it means that He will open the sea for you so that you can receive your blessing.
If you are poor and God says, “I will be your God,” it means that you will be well-provided for. Since God fed nearly three million Israelites in the wilderness every single day for 40 years, you can be sure that God will provide for you too.
If you are sick and God says, “I will be your God,” it means that He is going to be “the Lord who heals you” (Exod. 15:26).
If you have incurred a huge debt and God says, “I will be your God,” it means that He will make a way for you out of your current situation and show you how to better steward your finances or protect yourself from getting into a similar situation in the future.
But not only did God say, “I will be their God,” He also said, “they shall be My people.”
To be God’s people means to be the protected ones. Not all on earth are God’s people—only we who are redeemed by the blood of Christ. During times of uncertainties, God says to you, “You shall be My people.” This means that He wants to protect you from all pestilences, plagues, attacks, and destruction.
Even when you hear people say that the economic crisis is coming, God says to you, “You shall be My people.” This means that you don’t have to worry or be anxious. Regardless of the situation in the world, the Lord wants to protect you and continue to bless you.
God’s power comes into every challenge you face when He says to you, “I will be your God and you shall be My people.” Trust in His faithfulness and expect to experience the supernatural life. Your part is to believe what He declares, and act like it is so!
