Stand Firm - Bro. T. Stephen

Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless you in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Hosea 14:5, “I will be like the dew to Israel, He shall grow, like the lilly. And lengthen his roots, like Lebanon. His branches shall spread, and His beauty shall be like an Olive, tree.’’
From the above context we understand that our God made a promise to the People of Israel saying that He will be like the dew, like the early morning dew that drenches the thirsty land with its refreshing life, and vitality. It descends secretly, silently, and slowly and unobserved and yet each tiny droplet gently softens the iron-hard soil, which allows the joy of life to pour into the withering plant -reviving, reinvigorating, rejuvenating and replenishing. The Lord’s promise to become as refreshing dew from heaven to Israel, was accomplished just as His pledge to return His chosen inheritance to the land of Canaan was fulfilled.

God expects us to stand firm and steady in all that we do, only then can we stabilize ourselves in this life. One who stands firm till the end will be the conqueror. I am introducing the one who can stabilize you. He wants you to be like the Cedar that stands firm and spreads deep into the ground. You need to cling to the Lord who can make you stand firm. If one should stand firm, he ought to join with the Lord, who can stabilize, and settle you.
The Lord who can stabilize you, has come down to give you, wages that is firm, and permanent. Some might say, “Look I don’t have a steady income, so I haven’t got married. How can I settle down without a proper job? ”Well your cry has been heard by God in heaven. That is why this message has been posted to encourage your broken heart, mind and spirit. If one has to stand firm and steady in his education, job, or business then he needs to have a steady mind. He should not keep changing his mind, every now and then. If you are unstable then your life will be destroyed. Your life will be toppled.
You need to seek God to give you a steady mind. Ask God to give you an anointing of stabilizing your life. God who can stabilize your life, has come down today, to settle you well and make you stand firm and steady in all that you do. And God has promised even more wonderful blessing to follow, of which we are incapable of imagining, for eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for those that love him. So often as we trudge through the miry clay of this fallen world we too become weary and worn, discouraged and downcast, but praise God that we have access to the early morning dew, that revives, reinvigorates, rejuvenates, replenishes and refreshes our lives today and forevermore. Learn to stand firm and steady, that you might be established in life. God bless you.

Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Father God, we thank You that even when we are weary and worn out, You are there as refreshing dew from heaven, to soften our dry and parched state of life. Thank You for Your faithfulness to all of us, and though we often go astray, keep us close to your side, meet all our needs. Help us to stand firm and steady in all that we do.
In Jesus name we pray.
