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 1Samuel 9:5,20 ,“When they reached the district of Zuph, Saul said to the servant who was with him, “Come, let’s go back, or my father will stop thinking about the donkeys and become worried about us. But as for your donkeys that were lost three days ago, do not be anxious about them, for they have been found. And [a]on whom is all the desire of Israel? Is it not on you and on all your father’s house?”
From the above context we read how Saul went with his servant in search of his father’s donkeys. They had been searching for the donkeys for many days, but couldn’t find them so they wanted to return home, since their father might not only be worried about the donkeys but also be worried about Saul and his servant. But the servant said, there is a man in this city who can surely say where our donkey is, so let’s go there, perhaps he can show us the way that we should go. So they went to the city where the man of God was. Thus they went in search of Prophet Samuel, to whom God had already told that a young man Saul from the land of Benjamin would be coming to meet him. And God said, “You shall anoint him as the commander over My people, Israel, that he might save My people, from the hand of the Philistines.” So Samuel met Saul and invited him to eat with him, and also told him not to be anxious about his lost donkeys as they all would be found.
The Bible says, the Son of God came to seek that which was lost. Have you lost anything? Are you searching for your lost wealth, property, your health, your job? What is it that you have lost? Don’t worry, for they will be found. Saul’s father bought those donkeys with hard earned money. He cared for the donkeys, so much but now they had been lost. Saul’s father was so worried. He couldn’t afford to lose his donkeys so he sent his son and his servant in search of his donkeys. But Samuel told them not to worry about the donkeys for they were found. Saul and his servant were pleased to hear the report of the lost donkeys. They knew that they would now return home with the donkeys. Many days had passed by in searching for the donkeys. Then Samuel took them into the hall, and made them sit in the seat of honour, along with thirty other head persons. So Saul ate with Samuel that day. Samuel also announced to Saul the good news that God has chosen him to be the commander of His people Israel. Samuel took a flask of oil, and poured it on his head and kissed him . Saul returned home to his father’s house not only with his lost donkeys but as an anointed royal king of Israel. He received double blessings. He who came in search of the donkey returned home as the anointed king.
So don’t be worried, because God will cause you to get back all that you have lost in life. God who considers that which does not exist, as if they existed, will help you get back all that you have lost It is an easy thing for God to do whether it is with the powerful, or with those who are powerless. You might have lost your job, your wealth, your house or your life partner, or your business. Whatever it might be, God is able to do great things, provided you wait on Him for His time. For He is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you, ask or think. Therefore to those of you who are reading this message I wish to tell you, that if you lose a particular thing and you are worried about it, God knows your pain and struggle, so he will not only return that which you have lost but also, elevate your life in the society, as he lifted Saul who was from a humble tribe of Benjamin, to that of the king of Israel. God Bless You.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, thank You for telling us that You will help us get back all that we have lost in our life. We see how Saul found his donkeys and how he was anointed as the king of Israel. Thank You Lord for your grace and mercy shown to Saul, an ordinary man from the least tribe of Benjamin. Grant to us the same grace and mercy to find that which we have lost in our life.
