My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Isaiah 30-18 “ Therefore the Lord will wait, that He may be gracious to you. And therefore He will be exalted that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice. Blessed are all those who wait for Him”
From the above context we realize that our God is willing and is always waiting to help His children who totally depend upon Him. For our Lord is a God of Justice. God waits to save his children from getting into trouble. God has a right time to help us. He is a God of judgement. He is a righteous God. His waiting is full of work to fit us to receive His grace.
Today we find that God’s children are surrounded by ungodly people. Even though we are in this world we do not belong to this world spiritually. But we find many people planning to destroy us by any means. They plan to destroy our family, our children. A group of people are waiting to come against you, and wait as to when you will fall, when your family will be completely destroyed, when your children will be caught up in some kind of trouble. They rejoice at your fall. They may be your own relatives or neighbours, friends, or your own dear and near ones. They pretend to be good on the outside, but deep in their heart, they wish to see your downfall. This is the kind of attitude people have towards you.
You may not have a child to inherit your large property or your wealth. So immediately they see that you remain barren always, by trying all kinds of sorcery and witchcraft against you in order to usurp all your wealth and property for their children. They plan to grab your wealth for the simple reason that you are childless. Some wait to see when you will lose your post in the office concern, where you are employed, so that they may occupy your position or grade of work. They plan to destroy your good name, and reputation. While some try to tease and criticize and pull your legs down from your high position by spreading false or wrong information about you. While all this is happening in your life, the God of compassion is quietly waiting to show compassion and mercy to you if you look up to Him during times of distress or tribulation.
I tell you that the God of compassion is patiently waiting beside you to help you, to be gracious and merciful to you, in spite of all the efforts people have taken to act against you. For God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Our God is a God of Compassion. So however people try to destroy you, God is there to help you come out of all such odd situations. Reason out for yourselves when others inquire about the welfare of your children. Be cautious in all your doings. Pray to the Lord. Then He will directly reveal all things to you about your friends or other people who wish to destroy, your peace, happiness, and plans for your life. God’s waiting is very patient. God’s waiting is full of divine desire to help. Blessed are all they that wait for Him. This waiting upon God in His way with faith and patience is a surer way to your safety and happiness, than seeking any other carnal remedies. May the Lord direct your steps and help you seek God while you are in trouble.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for teaching us to depend upon God when we go through tribulation. Help us to be cautious when others inquire about our loved ones so that no harm might befall them. Give us the mind of discernment, to identify the odd person in our life and cast him aside. Save us from such people who plan to destroy us.
