Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and Ever Unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The Blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of 2 Corinthians 8:9, “And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” From the above verse we come to understand that God is able to bless you abundantly. So that you will have all things that you need, and you will abound in every good work. Paul draws a comparison with the great and generous grace that God had bountifully poured out upon all humanity through our Lord Jesus Christ – for though He was rich beyond all measure, yet for our sakes He became poor, so that by His poverty He could make us rich. We realize that the glorious, infinite, eternal attributes of God, which our minds cannot conceive, of the infinite riches of the eternal Son of God, are beyond imagination. What Love! What Grace! What a God!
All things were made by Him – all the riches of the earth and the wealth of sky – the treasures of the oceans and the bountiful resources of the vast universe – all things were made by Him and all things were made for Him. All these unimaginable riches and the glories of His elevated heavenly status were laid aside simply because of His GRACE towards us. All the inconceivable and vast riches of His glory were set aside for your sake and for mine and He stripped Himself of everything – becoming so poor that He did not even have a place to rest His head. Though He was the Creator of the universe, He came into a fallen world that was in bondage to the evil governance of Satan. God sent His son Jesus because of the love He had for you and me, so that by His deep poverty we might become rich.
God will fill all your emptiness and cause you to prosper by the riches of God. Today, He is coming down into your houses, as a God of riches. Halleluiah! May be you are entangled in huge debts, and not able to come out of it. And so you are so worried. You say, “Look I’m working so hard to repay my loans but nothing seems to end. Only the interest is getting over, but the principal amount is still the same. If I earn ten thousand, I have expenditure to spend at least twenty thousand. My expenditure is increasing all the more. So I am in a fix.” As a result you don’t know what to do. You think at times to end up your life. Don’t worry, God will help you to repay your debts, in an unimaginable manner. Because, His ways are different from yours. In order to end all your fears and doubts, God is opening doors of employment that could fetch better scale of pay. God is sending people to help you financially to help you repay your debts. If God could become poor to make you rich, can’t He help you pay all your debts. But on one condition. Obey God’s word. Fear God at all times. Humble yourselves before God and men. Never go about telling your sorrows to others, they will laugh at you. Commit your ways unto the Lord, trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, how great is Your grace and love towards us that You would strip Yourself of all Your glory and live a life of humiliating poverty, so that we could become rich, materially and spiritually. We praise Your Holy name. Thank You Lord for helping us in our difficult situation.
