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 Luke 12: 32, “Do not be afraid, little flock. For your father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.”
In the Bible, we read about Gideon, He was weak and quite afraid. But God looked at him and said, “I am going to do great and mighty things through you. Get up and set out.” Gideon gave many excuses, he said, “Lord I come from the smallest tribe, Manasseh my father, and my family is very small. How can I go and do great things? And I am the youngest of all from my small family, how can I carry out such a great mission? But the Lord said to him, “You will not do but I will do great things through you. So go with the little strength you have, for it is I who sends you.”
Under the support of God, Gideon set out on his mission. He was sent to deliver the people of Israel from the hands of the Midianites. He boldly listened to what God said, followed it, and was able to save the people of Israel from them. My dear children of God do not be afraid, the Lord is going to use you for a good purpose as He used Gideon. Even though you come from a small family or from a small tribe the Lord is going to use you to save the lives of many people. It is God who is sending you and when He sends you, He will give you the needed strength to carry out the mission set for you. All you need is to have a receptive heart and obey God’s commands and when you obey the Lord, He will be with you and do great wonders. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, we thank you for telling us not to be afraid. Take away all the spirit of fear, give your children sound sleep without any disturbances, some are afraid of the future but today you take away all the fear from them. Make them bold in You Lord. Help them to go forward in life like Gideon, who went out with the little strength that he had but became successful in His mission because You helped him. In the same way, I pray Lord that You will help and bless my children. Give my children their heart’s desire and honour them.
