JEHOVAH, OUR COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF
"A commander-in-chief is the person or body exercising supreme operational command and control of a nation's military forces or significant elements of those forces." There are many commanders in the world; bosses, parents, teachers, leaders, etc; but as far as I'm concerned, there's only one true Commander-in-chief, and His name is Jehovah!
Lamentations 3:37, "Who can command things to happen without the Lord’s permission?" NLT. The Amplified says, "Who is he who speaks and it comes to pass, if the Lord has not authorized and commanded it?"
In my short life, I've seen decisions taken about me reversed; you know why? Because Jehovah did not permit or authorise their decisions. In other words, all men are blabbers! They can keep blabbing for all I care; as long as Jehovah hasn't commanded it, it is well with me! Fear nothing, brothers and sisters; don't be terrified by the threats and pronouncements of mere mortals; only that which will favour you will come to pass, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Maybe men have said negative words to you in the past; Jehovah says it shall be well with you! You shall be great and mighty; you shall make progress; you shall live and not die; you shall be fruitful; in Jesus' name! Amen.
