My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Matthew 25:21, “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’
From the above context we learn about being faithful in few things. If you are faithful in few things then God will make you in charge of many things. God is looking at you this morning and saying, you have been faithful in few things. So I will put you in charge of many things. May be some of you are saying, “I have very little. What can I do with the little I have. ” The Lord is going to make an increase in your life. This message as such has come to confirm God’s Blessings upon you, in this New Year. Although you have very little with you the one who is within you, is much greater. And He does great things in your life. It is said that one can identify who you are, by the friends you hold. Or what sort of books you read. If you are in Christ then people will identify you as a child of God.
While making a covenant with Moses the Lord told him that people will see the works of God through him. He said, “The people with whom you live will see how awesome is the work that I, the Lord will do, in the midst of you. “God used ordinary and stammering Moses to perform mighty works among the people of Egypt and Israel. Moses struck the rock and water gushed out from the rock. The Red Sea was split in two by his rod. When he struck the rock water sprang forth. When the people asked for meat God sent a wind in the lower parts of the sea, and caused many number of quails on the shores of the sea. Thus Moses performed mighty miracles and wonders in the midst of the people of Israel, and it was said that there would not be another prophet like Moses after him.
Moses had just a rod or staff in his hand, with which the great and awesome God used him to perform many great miracles. Moses had very little in his hand but the Lord who was with him caused him to do a great many things. God was his back up or support. In the same way to those of you who have very little with you, God will be your back up and help you achieve great things in your life. God will do unimaginable things for you. All you need to exercise is your strong faith in God. Don’t trust man or expect help from unworthy people. Some will say he became great because of this person or that person. He gained name and fame, because of my friend, or my uncle, or my cousin who is abroad. But in future God says, He will be your strong support. He will be your backup. So put your trust in the Lord. For the Bible says, “They who put their trust in the Lord shall prosper.” God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we thank You for telling us that you will be our backup. As you were with Moses an ordinary, stammering man, and performed many miracles, please be with us also and help us to see and achieve great things in our lives. May others see the work of God in our lives.
