The tide has turned

Matt Richards

Psalm 118:12 Like swarming bees, like wild prairie fire, they hemmed me in; in GOD's name I rubbed their faces in the dirt. I was right on the cliff-edge, ready to fall, when GOD grabbed and held me. GOD's my strength, he's also my song, and now he's my salvation. Hear the shouts, hear the triumph songs in the camp of the saved? "The hand of GOD has turned the tide! The hand of GOD is raised in victory! The hand of GOD has turned the tide!" I didn't die. I lived! And now I'm telling the world what GOD did.

----- The tide has turned... in fact the hand of the Lord has turned the tide. Everything is changing. The Glory of the Lord is sweeping in. You know before a tsunami the tide goes right out; it can look like the sea disappears altogether. Sometimes before breakthrough it can be the same. It looks like everything is going wrong and the presence of the Lord has been withdrawn altogether. But you know it's just a set up. This drives us to our knees and before long, the tide is coming in at furious force. In Radical, in church, the tide has changed. The hand of God has turned it. In your life it might seem like God has withdrawn His presence. It might seem like there is a swarm of bees surrounding you, or a fire about to consume you. You might be at a cliff edge ready to fall. But God is about to, He is in the process of, turning it all around. He is dealing with your enemies, he is rescuing you, His presence is now perusing you. The hand of the Lord has turned the tide.


Father thank You, thankyou that at the worst times You are there and not only are there but you are turning the tide. Thank You for dealing with the enemy, thank You for Your Glory sweeping in in Jesus name amen.
