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 2 Kings 18:6-7, “He held fast to the Lord and did not stop following him; he kept the commands the Lord had given Moses. And the Lord was with him; he was successful in whatever he undertook”. As Ezekiel followed the commandments that the Lord gave to Moses, he has success in all that he undertook.
Many of you go towards your work with a hope that you will have success in all that you do. You might have got an unfavorable reply. As a result, you would have become broken hearted and would have lost all hopes. God has seen all your fears and failures. He is going to bring you out of all your struggles.
To have success in all that you do, you need to do two things. Firstly, you should not back slide from God. Secondly, you need to be a person who depends on God for all your needs. The bible tells us about the story of Samson. He was truthful and faithful in the sight of God. During the days when he depended of God for all his needs, all that he did prospered. He was a very strong man. There was no one who dared to stand before Samson because he had Jesus with him. But when the time he slid back from God and indulged himself in unrighteous activities, the presence of God departed from him. Because he deviated from the presence of God, everything that he did was unfavorable to him. Till that moment, his strength was God being with him. The book of Psalms 119:67 says, “Before I was afflicted I went astray”. When Samson went away from the presence of God, he faced many afflictions.
If you have gone away from the Lord and have done anything that displeases the Lord, turn from all your wrong doings. My dearly beloved, today you need to take a decision. Tell the Lord that you need favor in all that you do and repent for all your wrong doings. When you pray such a prayer, God will surely do everything in favor of you. If you wish to lead a successful life, bring an end to the days when you depended on man for everything. Keep God as your center and give Him your first priority. The Lord will be with you and will lift you up.
God bless you.
