It's Not Over Until God Says It's Over.

The truth of the matter is that God has the last say so in our lives even when it looks like all hope is lost.
Let’s take Elisha for an example. He was surrounded by the Syrians and looking in the natural, (with eyes of unbelief) it appeared to his servant that they were outnumbered. Elisha did not pray for God to deliver him out of his situation but prayed that his servant's eyes be open to the truth. When he pray that God open his eyes for him to see that there are more with them than there are that are with his enemies, his servant saw the hold host of heaven surrounding them. 2 Kings 6:8-17. It is not over until God say it is over.
Even when the Samaritans were in famine and they resorted to eating their own babies, God provided for them through the faith and obedience of four leprous men who instead of sitting and waiting to die from starvation, i believe heard a voice instructing them to go into the Syrians camp. As they went in faith, The Lord made the Syrians hears noise of chariots, and of horses coming towards them and they fled leaving all their goods behind. The four leprous men went in and ate and took some goods and then went back to tell the king of Israel and the Samaritans who were in famine ate and had many substances. 2 Kings 7.
We all know the story or the truth of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace. They refused to bow down to another God and was thrown into the furnace but God came in with them and did not allow the fire to even sent their cloths. It is not over until God said it is over.
Another example like our brother Daniel in the lion’s den; Our God is so remarkable and unmatched.
Our most precious example; Jesus Christ himself; Satan thought that he orchestrated his best play by crucifying Jesus. He thought that it was all over when he died on the cross. Even some of his followers lost hope and went back to their daily lives. But God! On that third day he not only rose from the tomb, he went down to hell, Satan’s play ground and took the keys of life so that death would have no more sting. He so awesome? It isn't over until God said it is over.
Whatever we are facing in this life, even if we are not deliver from going through it, know that God has the last say so and no one else. Keep the faith and stand on his word. Not many will stand and walk that narrow path. Very few find it. Stay encouraged. God loves you and he demonstrated it by giving his Son Jesus Christ as a ransom for us all. Have faith and walk with your head up.
