My dearly beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious word of God that comes to you for today, is taken from the book of Psalms 18:35, “You have also given me the shield of Your salvation; Your right hand has held me up, Your gentleness has made me great. “
The Psalmist says, that God’s gentleness has made him great. Gentleness means kindness or tenderness. He is known for his kindness. He has a tender heart and he is a merciful God. That Is why the psalmist says, that the tenderness of God has made him great. He says, God’s mercy, God’s kindness, has made him great. So, these qualities of God can make you great.
You may be worried that you could not move forward in life. You may be saying that, “I am going backward. I am unable to go forward in my life. I’m growing weaker and weaker day by day. If I go on in this manner. what will happen to me? I will only end up in a deep pit. My life will be ruined.” Today, God’s kindness is falling upon you. Just as the tenderness of God fell upon David who was tending his father’s sheep and by the mercy of God, he became the king of Israel, God’s kindness will touch you .
We can also see Joseph, in the Bible who was put in jail because of a false accusation. But since he interpreted the meaning of the dream of Pharaoh, he became the governor of Egypt. Thus, we see how the gentleness of God lifted him to a higher level. He was suffering punishment in jail for no reason. In fact, he was very honest and faithful to God, but he was thrown into jail by Potiphar as one among the hundred prisoners. But a day came when all of a sudden Joseph was brought before the Pharaoh. Pharaoh had already heard about Joseph, that he was a Hebrew, and he had predicted the dreams of the butler and butcher and their dream came to pass as interpreted by Joseph while they were in the jail.
Joseph was exalted by God as the Governor of Egypt next to the Pharaoh. Joseph when tempted did not yield to sin instead he ran away from committing sin. So, God honoured him in that strange land. He saved the land during the period of acute famine. So, he was highly esteemed by Pharaoh. God exalted him. The reason was because of God’s gentleness. Today the tender eyes of God are falling upon each and every one of You who are reading this message. When God’s eyes fall on you then you all shall be exalted. God will surely make you great. God will make you great in your business, in your ministry, in your education, and in your work spot. Day by day, you shall grow greater and greater and become prosperous.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank you. Many of your children are going backward in their life. Those who are going downward and have become weaker and weaker, and for those who are running in famine and poverty, Lord I pray that your tender eyes may fall on such people. As a result, may your children achieve a greater position in their life. In Jesus Name We Pray.
