My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The special word of God for you today is taken from the book of Zephaniah 3:19, “I will appoint them for praise and fame. In every land they were put to shame.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God is directly telling you that in the very place where you had been put to shame, the place where you had to stoop before others, God is going to give you name and fame, and help you walk with head lifted up. No matter what was the reason that you had been put to shame, and therefore you had to put your head down before others. May be because of debts you might have been put to shame. The creditor would have shouted at you from the roadside. You might have been put to shame because of your own child’s bad behavior or may be because of your husband. or you could have been put to shame because of your daughter and son in law or because of your failure. Whatever it may be God is saying through this verse, “I will appoint them for praise and fame. In every land they were put to shame.”
God says, In every land where you had been put to shame. That doesn’t mean in only one place, but in many places, where you had been put to shame, in all those places and before all those people God is going to appoint you for praise and fame.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God is going to perform a miracle for you in your life that would bring you fame and name. That miracle in your life will make all people turn around and look at you. May be in your school or college, All those who despised you, and put you to shame, who made fun of you, who ridiculed you, who said that you won’t pass in the 10th standard ? Who said that you will never pass the 12th standard? Who said that there is no chance for you to complete your degree? In front of those very people God is going to exalt you. Before them you are not only going to complete your studies successfully, but God is going to make you the topper. God is going to appoint you for praise and fame. Not only the eyes of the strangers will see your progress but your own eyes shall see it. Many of you are waiting for your results. Just don’t lose your faith. Hold on to God, and as per this verse, ask God not to put you to shame. At school, in the college.Tell the Lord, “Make me to shine before others and appoint me, for praise and fame. All those who put you to shame will themselves, come forward, and salute you. This day’s auspicious word namely, “I will appoint them for praise and fame. In every land they were put to shame.” will perform a miracle for you.
Prayer: Dear Lord we thank You. Lord in whichever places your children have been put to shame, where they experienced humiliation and had to stoop their head, and because of others they experienced shame in that very place Lord you grant them name and fame. In case your children have experienced shame because they have no children, let their reproach disappear. Let the barriers for marriage be uprooted. Let all the children be victorious. More than their expectation or more than what they think Lord grant them good score in their exams. Cause them to shine with praise and fame.
In Jesus Name We Pray.
