My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, God expects you to hold on to Him firmly. To trust him faithfully and honestly. Then God will fill you with His perfect peace.If in this world you can trust someone, then it should be the Lord Jesus Christ and none other. Please tell the Lord that you will hold on to Lord Jesus Christ. Many hold on to someone either for seeking help for a job or for a promotion, or for the gift of a child. You may have been running behind, certain people, or for a financial help to run your business or for the upliftment of your family. Place your hope upon Lord Jesus Christ. Then he will grant you His perfect peace.Peace that passes all understanding.
People not only hold on to someone for their need but also go after them like mad guys and in the end get cheated by them. Today Jesus is telling you that it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. When you hold onto God firmly then many good things will happen in your life. Give up on those people whom you trusted all this while and begin to trust in the living God.
You may be running here and there for your needs. If you need to get something in your life it should come from heaven. The Bible says, every good gift and every perfect gift, is from above,and comes down from the father of lights with whom there is no variation. You have received the spirit of adoption whereby we have the privilege of calling the Lord as Abba, Father and approach Him directly and tell Him all our problems. Therefore take hold of Jesus, firmly. Not in an ordinary sense or in a shallow manner but to hold on to the Lord firmly, three hundred and sixty five days of your life. Not to attain something for your benefit, and then reject God for the rest of your life but to hold on to the Lord firmly always.Tell the Lord that you will hold on to him firmly no matter what befalls you. Surrender your life to Him and in due season, He will exalt you and bless you.
Our loving heavenly, Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank you Lord for assuring us with your perfect peace. Help us not to run behind people in search of things but to depend upon you for all our needs. Teach us to surrender our lives to You in all circumstances. Never to leave your grip but to hold on to you firmly. May we love you all the more. In Jesus Name we pray.
