Dearly beloved brothers and sisters 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 Jeremiah 32:21-22,“You brought Your people Israel out of the land of Egypt with signs and wonders, with a strong hand and outstretched arm, and with great terror. And You gave them this land, which You swore to their fathers to give them, a land flowing with milk and honey. Canaan refers to blessings.
The people of Israel were kept as captives in Egypt. The Israelites cried out to the Lord seeking His help to be delivered. The Lord heard their cry and brought them out of Egypt to the land of blessings – Canaan (the land flowing with milk and honey). Today, the Lord is going to cause you to ‘Arise and Start’ afresh.
You might have been captive to many captivities like addiction to drugs, alcohol, pride, greed, envy, lust and much more. The book of 1 Corinthians 3:17 says, “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple”. Your body is the temple of God, which means, God dwells in you. God cannot dwell in a place that is unclean. For God to dwell in you, you have to make yourself pure and get rid of your old sinful life. Arise and start moving towards the blessings of the Lord, leaving your old life. When you dwell in your sinful life, you will become a barricade of your own blessings. Repent and ask the Lord to cleanse you from all your sinful nature. Keep your body and mind pure, only then the Lord will be able to dwell in you.
Luke 15:10, says, “Heaven will rejoice when you repent from your sins”. When you repent, the Lord will rejoice and will be happy. God will take away all your sins and will bless you with peace and happiness. God will forgive and make you a new creation. You will receive all the blessings that the Lord has promised to you.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, You are the God who brought the people of Israel out of Egypt into the land of blessings- Canaan. Likewise, Father, I pray that You may bring out Your children from all the sinful nature that they have been caught up into. Bless them with a new start in their life. May all their thoughts and actions be pure and pleasing in Your sight Lord Jesus. In Jesus name we pray,
