I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ.
The blessed word that the Lord is giving you today is taken from the book of Amos 5:4, “Seek Me and live.”
This is what the Lord says to us and our progeny, “Seek me and you will thrive”. The most important thing that a man should do to live, prosper, and prolong his days on the earth is to cling on to the God of heaven. Then He will open ways for our survival. The psalmist says:
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills from whence comes my help. My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.” (Psalms 121:1,2).
David has his eyes fixed on the hills from where he received help. Personalise this experience. Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father (James 1:17). As we come closer to God and cling on Him, He will open ways for our success. He will open the treasuries of heaven for us. The Bible says:
“You visit the earth and water it, You greatly enrich it; the river of God is full of water; You provide their grain, For so You have prepared it.” (Psalm 65:9).
Yes, our dear God is a God who is concerned about us. He is concerned about His children! He will make us and our household fertile by watering us. The Lord knows what you need, and He will fulfil your hearts desires (Psalm 20:4).
This is what the Bible says about Samson, “Then he became very thirsty; so he cried out to the Lord and said, “You have given this great deliverance by the hand of Your servant; and now shall I die of thirst and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?” So, God split the hollow place that is in Lehi, and water came out, and he drank; and his spirit returned, and he revived…” (Judges 15:18,19).
When Samson was returning victoriously after killing a thousand Philistines who came against the Israelites, he became thirsty and so he cried out to the Lord in the desert and said, “You have given this great deliverance by the hand of Your servant; and now shall I die of thirst and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?” How did God answer him? God split the hollow place that is in Lehi, and water came out, and he drank; and his spirit returned, and he revived. Are you lamenting that there is no one to help me, my life is as barren as the desert? Seek God like Samson did. He will make you thrive!
There are many nurses and technicians working in government hospitals in Saudi Arabia who support our TV ministry. Mr Ravindran from Tirunelvelli is also living in Saudi Arabia. One day he contacted me over telephone and told me the following, “My niece is hailing from a financially weak family. She has completed her nursing qualifications, so I thought if I bring her to Saudi Arabia and she secures a job in a government hospital, it will raise her family’s financial status. So, I brought her from India to Saudi Arabia. But she failed to qualify for the Saudi government licence examinations even after 3 attempts. Due to this she is always weeping because now she must return to India. Please talk with her” so saying he handed the phone to her. I told her, “If you believe in the Lord, today you will receive a miracle. If you agree I can pray for you”. She said, “I definitely believe in the Lord”. I prayed, “Lord you have said that anyone who comes in search of you, will not lack any good thing. Please give this child one more chance to appear for the qualifying exams.” After praying I said the Lord will help you and ended the call. The next morning around 11:30 she called me again. What she shared has never ever happened before in the history of Saudi – Mr Ravinder was asked to bring his niece for yet another chance to write the qualifying exam. Immediately she went and made a fourth attempt at the qualifying exams. This time with the Lord’s help she successfully cleared the exam and secured a job. Hallelujah!
Yes, every child of God who comes seeking the Lord will definitely prosper. Is your child seeking a job in a foreign country, a different state, or another city? Perhaps they are unable to succeed in life as there no prospects. Maybe they are lamenting that there are no opportunities to thrive. He will open ways for both you and your children to prosper.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You, Father, for the living, powerful Word of God. Your word says seek God and you will live. Help us to seek you and lead a victorious life. Bless this month of March and guide us step by step to lead a life pleasing to You. In Jesus Name We Pray.
