Share your burdens with the Lord - Bro. T. Stephen
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 us today is from the book of Hosea 12:4, “He struggled with the angel and overcame him; he wept and begged for His favor. He found him at Bethel and talked with him there”. BETHEL was the place where God met Jacob and spoke to him. The Lord who met Jacob, is going to meet you today through His word. Jesus is looking at each of you individually. He is examining each of your needs and is speaking to you right now.
Jacob was the one, who received the blessings of his parents and without any capital, he decided to begin his life. When there came a time he had to earn, his parents called him and blessed him whole heartedly. They sent him to his uncles’ place and told him to work there. His parents submitted him into the hands of God. As he obeyed the words of his parents and went, God blessed Jacob with a step-by-step increment in his salary for ten times. Later, he got an opportunity to partner with his uncle as a working partner. His boss was his uncle but his capital was his hard work. God blessed Jacob several times.
After many years, when Jacob returned home, his heart was full of fear. Jacob and his brother had a fight and that was why he left home. Jacob feared that, the enmity his brother had against him might bring danger to him and his family. That night, Jacob battled with the Lord in prayer and asked His favor and blessings. The Lord blessed Jacob and everything went well.
Likewise, God expects the same kind of prayer life from you. Many of you reading this might be crying that, you are not getting any increment in your salary. Today, the Lord says that, He is going to bless you with double and triple increment in your salary. God is telling you that, all that you need is the wholehearted blessings of your parents. Believe it and receive it. Share all your problems with Jesus and He will open a way for you.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. I pray that You may bless Your dear children. Father, teach them to share their problems with You so that You will be able to give them a solution. Give them Your blessings today Lord. Enable them to experience the sweet communion with You. In Jesus name we pray,
