My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Psalm 118:22 “The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.”
Jesus said unto them, ”Have You never read in the scriptures that the stone the builders rejected has become the corner stone”. God can change nomads, strangers, and wanderers into refined and elegant personalities. If this is true then God can change the nature and character of your grown up children into good human being. Lord can change those grownups who have gone astray and think what they do is right and walk in their own understanding. They fail to lean on God. They seem to be wise in their own eyes. They even disobey parents and wish to live a care free life. They refrain themselves from correction. The Bible says, My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. They do not know that the fear of the Lord lead. But God can transform them in a moment of time. If only the eyes of the Lord should fall upon them they will experience a great change in them. The Holy Spirit will speak into their hearts. Even those who have earned a bad name will earn good reputation in the latter part of their life. May they realize and reconcile with God so that they may be as the corner stone. Sometimes such grownups are despised and rejected in the society. They feel as if lost in this world. They begin to be secluded and distance themselves from their loved ones too.
One such boy despised in the scripture was David. He was in a way despised and rejected by his father Jesse and his brothers who were in the kings army. David a teenage shepherd boy from Bethlehem turned out to be a top notch warrior by killing the giant Goliath. Later he became the captain of the army of Israel. Then he became the son in law of King Saul. Finally he became the King of Israel. David was a man after Gods own heart. Since God was with him he increased day by day. God saw David with the potential of a king. Thus David rose high from an ordinary shepherd boy to that of a king. He who was rejected became the corner stone. Hence, My dear brothers and sisters, don’t worry if you are rejected or despised by your dear ones or colleagues at your work spot or by your friends. For if you hold on to the living God He will lift you up. Therefore cheer up. God will revive you and strengthen you for His glory.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord I pray that my children will not be despised or rejected by any one. May they live a pleasing life to God. May they increase day by day in their life. Lord let them not be put to shame in any way. Forgive their sinful deeds. Draw them close to you. Save them from all evil situation and brighten their future. In Jesus name we pray.
