I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Joel 2:26 “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, And praise the name of the Lord your God.”
From the above context we see the promise of God assured to His people through Prophet Joel. This is a prophetical word to all those of you who are reading this message, as to what the Lord is about to do for you after these days. The Lord says, “You shall eat in plenty.” I have heard some people say, “I was unable to provide food for my child. My son has gone to school without taking any food, or you might say, “My Son has gone to college without having his food,” and so you are very distressed to think about your poor state of life that you could not provide even food for your children. But today the Lord is saying, “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied.”
Today we see how the Lord has given, us much growth and advancement during these days, while our grandparents and elderly people are still alive with us to see the vast development and prosperity of our days, that they had missed in their earlier days. These days God has blessed us so much that we compel our children to eat well to the full. We see mothers running behind their children to feed them. The Lord has provided such abundance, these days. Our children are going to see much more than these in the days to come. Hallelujah! Our God is one who will lead us in a wonderful way. We often think what is the Lord doing for us? Just look back and see the past days of life, as to how we were brought up.
But we see how wonderfully the Lord is leading us. The children of God are advancing day by day. In those days there were only huts made of mud and bricks, every side we turn to. People made bricks by themselves. But today a large quantity of baked bricks is brought by lorry trucks, to help them construct their houses. In those days, the mother, father, and their children would get together to make mud bricks. Children would go a long distance to locate hand pumps, to bring pots of water to help their parents. They in turn would stamp the mud like clay, with their feet, and make bricks by themselves. There was no proper roof with tiles. But they would take the leaves from the palm trees, weave them and use them as roof for covering their mud huts. Once in two months they would change the roof. But look at the development we have today. The lifestyle has changed considerably in these modern times. The Lord is leading us miraculously.
Maybe you too have been going through a tough period, in feeding and growing up your children. You might have been caught up in debts, or you might have taken huge loan for paying the fees for your children or for medical treatment of someone sick in your family, as a result you would have been unable to feed your children properly with good food or meet their expectation. But prophetically God is saying that you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied. God will open ways and means for you to meet all your financial needs. For the Bible says, “My God will meet all your needs according to His Glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” So believe in Jesus for your sustenance. God Bless You.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank you Lord for making us understand how, You have changed our times to see better days. Lord we praise You and also uphold You for helping us to eat well and be satisfied. Enrich us to meet our financial needs according to your promise.
