God of Exceeding Joy - Bro. T. Stephen

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Today we are going to meditate on the word Psalm 90:14, “Oh satisfy us in the morning, with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Make us glad for as many days, as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.”

This is a psalm that Moses offered to the Lord as a prayer. In this verse, Moses emphasises his desire to the Lord regarding the people of Israel. He wanted the people to rejoice, who came along with him, with a hope of living a life of freedom in the land flowing with milk and honey. He says; make us glad according to the days, wherein we have been afflicted. The People of Israel had lived a cruel life in the land of Egypt.  They were in bondage for nearly 430 years. They were not only in bondage but also were tortured severely by them. The Bible tells that   they were so burdened and hence they cried out to the Lord.  Moses actually pleads the Lord on their behalf to help them see better days.  Moses desired that God would bring an end to all their tribulation.

My dear children of God, you too might have been crying out to the Lord for several years, regarding your problems that you are facing. And you might not have received an answer to your prayers. The Lord is saying that He is going to put an end, to all your problems. From today, you are going to be glad all the days of your life.

The Lord is going to satisfy you with His abundant mercies that will cause you to rejoice in the Lord.  He will wipe away all the tears from your eyes. He will put gladness in your heart. He will set you on the rock and fill your mouth with His praises. He will change your sorrow into joy and place new grace upon you every day. Grace is the gift that the Lord gives to you when you are not worthy of it. You might have faced a lot of disappointments in life, and hence filled with sorrow.  Today the Lord is about to perform a miracle for you. God wants to grant you gladness according to the days (in which)   you have suffered in your life.  For our God is able to do exceedingly great things in your life. God bless you.

Prayer: Our loving Heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day.  Lord you have seen the troubles and pain that your children have endured all these years. Lord I pray that you may fill them with your abundant mercies and grace every morning and satisfy them with gladness all the days, of their lives. Lord let the days of disaster come to an end in their life and bless them to see greater days in life. Shower your unfailing love upon them.

In Jesus name we pray.
