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 Deuteronomy 5:33, “Walk in obedience to all that the LORD your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land which you shall possess”.
During recent times we see many seeking jobs abroad. To such people, God promises three gifts, as mentioned in Deuteronomy 5:33.
God assures that He will cause you to live and do well in the land you go to possess with regard to your job or may be because of your settlement there in that strange foreign land. God will not only help you to live and do well there, but also prolong your days in that land. Our God is faithful. He says what He does. To live and do well in life one must secure a good job in the new place. Only then can one live in peace and harmony. God says “I will create means of living for my children.”God keeps His promise. He led the people of Israel from Egypt to the land of Cannan as He had promised. He never forsook them midway. He provided Manna heavenly food from above. He changed bitter waters of Marah to sweet water and provided quails delicious meat for them in the wilderness.
Isaiah 43:19 says, I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 45:2 says He makes the crooked places straight. Nothing is too hard for the Lord. He is a God who cares for His children. He preserves the faithful. God expects you to live, do well and prolong your days in the land which you go to possess. This is His plan for you. All you need to do is to keep his command.
When everything becomes a failure and their life becomes a question then People turn to God for deliverance. They may be people from any religion. When all hope is lost they will stretch out their hands towards heaven indicating that God alone should help in such difficult circumstances. Especially doctors while treating patients try their best to save them but when they lose hope, then they too say only “God can save.” If you live according to the command of God, then you have security of life, security of job, security of finance, etc. The only person who can give life security is Jesus Christ. Therefore cling to Him for all your needs. Our God is a prayer answering God . Preachers and pastors are appointed to bless, pray and intercede for the people who are going through difficult times in their life.
1 Samuel 16:7 says, Man looks on the outward appearance. But the Lord does not look as man sees. (He looks at the heart) Are you burdened with deception? Tell the Lord all your problems. Cry out to God. Psalm 65:2 says, “O You who hear prayer, To You all flesh will come”. There is nothing impossible for God to perform. Therefore if you will walk in all the ways, that the Lord your God has commanded you, then you will live, and all will be well with you, and your days will be prolonged in the land which you shall possess.
Prayer: Our Loving heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. Lord help my children to live and do well in life, and to prolong their days in the land they go to possess. Father let your eyes watch over your children in the new place. Help them to always seek you first. Teach them to depend on the Lord Jesus Christ for all their needs. In Jesus Name we pray.
