8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : 2 CHRONICLES 33 : 10 – 33 : 33 AND JOHN 3 : 22 – 4 : 15.
Whenever God says a thing, you can be sure that it is already done. That is why Psalm 33 : 8 commands the whole earth to fear this great and awesome God: whatever He declares is done, and His commandments are always established.
For Instance, when John the Baptist by divine revelation announced Jesus as the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world ( John 1 : 29 ), he was only announcing something that had already been planned, decided and concluded before the foundations of the earth. The Bible clearly states this truth in Revelation 13 : 8 :
“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
In other words, before God laid foundations of this world, He had already seen how things would turn out for the human race He was yet to create; so He decided in advance that at some point in time, Jesus Christ would come to this world, be crucified and die for the sins of all men.
So when you hear God saying something, it is not about what He wants to do, but about what He has already done. When a road is rehabilitated and the governor of a state comes to declare it open, it does not mean that the road is new or has just been constructed. The road could have been in use for several years or months before it was properly constructed with drainages, pedestrian pathways, culverts, trees lining the middle, footbridges, etc. The commissioning of the road is simply launching the road into another phase. In the same vein, whatever God says He will do has already been done in the spiritual realm. It has been concluded. Those in Heaven can see it already; it’s only a matter of time before it materialises in the physical realm. The awesomeness of God is further revealed when we realise that no man can speak of what he wants to happen in the future and have it that way except God sanctions it. The Bible declares this in Lamentations 3 : 37 :
“Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?”
Therefore, has God said He would do something in your life, family, ministry, business or career? It is already settled. In the spirit realm, it can already be seen. All you have to do is to bring it into manifestation in the physical realm through prayer, thanksgiving and worship. Your greatness is settled. Your tomorrow will be alright. It is a settled matter. It shall be well with you, and you will end well in Jesus’ Name.
ACTION POINT :
Thank God for past Holy Ghost conversations. Pray that this year’s conversation will be most outstanding in power, miracles, wonders and signs.
