Text:”…. if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:40)
With human beings, certain things are impossible but with God nothing is impossible (Matthew 19:26). God has the capacity to annul the medical embargo which stipulated that a lady that had reached the stage of menopause, inflicted with fibroid or severe infection, or a man with low sperm count can never have a child because in Him, “that stones can talk” and for the sun to shine again (cf Genesis 18:9-15). The laws of economy that guaranteed success when a business has right resources, right tools, right team or qualified workforce and operated in the right time can also be suspended for a flourishing business, because in Him “stones can talk” and your sun can shine again (cf Luke 5:1-11; Genesis 26:12).
It therefore doesn’t matter what your Doctors, your family or your church members, your friends or associates have concluded about you, because they don’t have the final say, the story will change in God and your sun will shine again. This is suffice to say that, with Him, there is no hopeless condition; and in Him, anybody can become anything! In Him, human laws that some ladies can never have husbands based on whatever circumstance can be suspended because “stones can talk” for the darkened sun to shine again.
When Jesus Christ approached Bethphage and Bethany, at the mount of Olives, He discovered an ass whose life purpose had been destroyed by her owners. He sent His disciples and ordered release of the ass together with the colt from the junction of destiny distortion. He removed the injunction placed on them by people that had decided that “their mouths must not speak”. When they brought the ass to Jesus Christ, clothes were placed on it and for the first time, “the stone spoke” and the sun was up again. Halleluyah! The sight of Jesus Christ on that ass into Jerusalem heralded ecstasy and songs of praises from the people but when the Pharisees in the crowd heard the noise, they said unto Jesus, “………. Master, rebuke thy disciples”. Jesus answered them and said, “I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out” (Luke 19:39-40). With that statement, Jesus Christ introduced another theology that, with Him nothing is impossible and that the sun can rise again (Luke 1:37; Psalm 62:11) – He can bring water from the rock (1 Corinthians 10:4 cf Exodus 17:5-6), He can open heaven to release ‘bombs’ to destroy adversaries (Joshua 10:10-11) and with a stone He can silence fierce opposition and intimidation (1 Samuel 17:45-49).
Beloved, Jesus Christ has the final say and not any human being, not any politician and not any spiritual leader or head. He has promised that “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5; Job 22:29). Beloved, your sun will shine again. In Jesus Christ, there is no hopeless case, as anyone can become anything. Even, a dead tree has hope of resurrection at the scent of water (Job 14:7-9). In Christ, a generally agreed underdog can become a celebrity; and, a clinically dry or dead bone can rise, walk and talk (Ezekiel 37:1-10 cf Psalm 1:1-3). God has capacity to “….. make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19). He can create an expressway in the river (Exodus 14:21-22; 2Kings 2:13-15) or a pathway on water for His children to walk on majestically (Matthew 14:29).
Dear brothers and sisters, don’t allow anyone play God in your life. During this passion week, His suffering can, and shall, change your story for His glory. This is your season to manifest His glory and a season for your surprising victory. Either the devil likes or hates it, you are going to be lifted and your sun shall shine again. There is no person that can determine your future because He has the final say. Whatever position that God had destined for you to get to, be rest assured that you shall get there, no matter the gigantesque opposition against you. People that are boasting to deal with you or hinder your lift up are being emboldened by sheer ignorance of God and what He is capable of doing. God who sent ravens to feed Elijah with roasted meat from the heaven’s abattoir and His divine kitchen every morning and evening, is a God that can make “stones talk” and cause the sun to shine again ( 1 Kings 17: 1-7). The God who replaced the heat of a fiery furnace with the cool breeze of an air conditioner for His children is the God that can make “stones talk” and make the sun to shine again (Daniel 3:22-27; Isaiah 43:2-4). The God who literarily turned carnivorous lions into herbivorous lions is a God that can make “stones talk” and make your sun to shine again (Daniel 6:21-22).
To be a partaker of the miracle of stuttering of stones and shame powers that don’t want mouths to speak, you need to give your life to Jesus Christ, surrender your battle to Him, ask Him to free you from every road junction injunction, liberate you from known and unknown captivity, frustrate whatever satanic judgment placed on you, deliver you from inherited challenges, give you latitude to eat what you want and not what you see and make you a celebrity like that ass. As the Lord lives, your sun is going to shine again, and it shall shine brighter for all eyes to see in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Prayer: Where they have said there is no way, O Lord, make ways for me and let the stones of my life begin to talk and sing, in Jesus’ name.
