Psalm 125:1-2 “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.”
There is protection and security for those that trust in God, today, there is a hedge about them and all that they have. On every side, God is their shield fortifying His people from the enemy! No, every attack may not be averted but each blow surely lightened.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.”
My brethern, alone in the world is a very defenseless position to be in. Our sucesses truly lie heavily on our Christian unity as “where there is unity there is always victory.” (Publilius Syrus) No, we don’t have to do it all alone; even Jesus had help carrying calvary’s cross.
Jeremiah 32:42 “‘This is what the Lord says: As I have brought all this great calamity on this people, so I will give them all the prosperity I have promised them.'”
Promise won’t come without persecution, brethern; one simply cannot be accomplished without the other. Yet trust that when darkerness does fall brighter will also arise for day must ALWAYS proceed night. So when your way seems dark and drear you don’t have to worry because God is near; there’s a bright side somewhere!!
Revelation 3:2 “Wake up! Strengthen what remains and is about to die, for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.”
Wake up, brethern, there is still work to be done. Don’t be careless, be watchful. Become watchful over yourselves, your conversations, and your connections for the work is yet to be fulfilled. And here’s the shout today: though things may be dying, if we strengthen what remains those very same things can be revived.
Psalm 118:22 “The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone.”
Never forget that you are the stone worth being built upon. Though others may not be able to see what’s in you, Isreal, there IS great use for you for your worth isn’t dependant upon the perception of others. Remember, even our Saviour was rejected and He then became the very foundation. Cause truth is, my brethern, even our rejection has designed purpose. 🙌
Psalm 61:1-2 “Hear my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you, I’ll call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
When life is overwhelming, be reminded that your issues can ascend no higher than where your help comes from. Brethern, God is our refuge. We can always go to Him and cry out in prayer. Trouble don’t last always, David. No, your great difficulty SHALL be overcome by your great God.
1 John 2:17 “The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.”
At times, we often long after the supposed favor of others but the world and its desires will surely pass away. Even now when all appears well; it is surely passing away. BUT those in the will of God have a forever to see their favor manifest. So, my brethern, refuse to allow the glitz of anothers right now to outshine the forever that is at your disposal.
