I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Proverbs 12:7.”The Wicked Are Over Thrown And They Are No More. But The House Of the Righteous, Stands Firm.”
From the above verse the Lord says that the house of the righteous, who walk in truth and is faithful to God will stand firm. But the house of the wicked and unrighteous person will be over thrown and will be destroyed. So it is necessary that we should be righteous before God. Where people stand before God makes all the difference in this life and the next, this proverb seems to be stressing. The people who reject God and His ways, who go about their business with no regard of Him, are said here to be overthrown completely. They have no sure future, no way. What surety do they have if God can call them to account at anytime? No one knows the hour of their death, and there is only judgment awaiting the lost. But the righteous household has no fear of dangers that might befall it. The righteous person’s surety is in God, and they will stand regardless of whatever happens.
If you have committed yourself, to grow into the kind of person that God wants you to be, then you will flourish like the palm tree. And will grow like the Cedar of Lebanon. If you have submitted to live a righteous life then you can boldly say, My House will stand firm. My Family will stand firm. The Words of the Lord will never fail. The Lord is telling as prophesy that your house which has been shaken will be made to stand. Your business that has been shaken during Corona period will again be made to stand firm. You might have lost everything but you have not lost Jesus Christ. So you are safe. But if you have lost Jesus Himself because of your unbelief then you are bound to lose all that is left over. So take care never to give room for disbelief . You might have bought a house but because of lockdown you would have lost your job, as a result you could not pay your dues. So the owner of the house would auction your house. All your goods would have come for auction. All the jewels that you had pledged in the bank would have come for auction. But the Lord says, Believe on Me I will open new doors for you to survive. I will open new ways for your livelihood. I will help you with ways and means for you to redeem all that you had lost in your life. Trust in Jesus then You will shine.
The house of the righteous will stand: God will preserve His own righteous men and women. They and their house will endure that which would overthrow the house of the wicked. A man may sometimes do a good work with one good word. God’s blessing is often continued to the families of godly men, while the wicked are overthrown. He that lives in a humble state, and who has no one to support him, but gets bread by his own labour, is happier than he that glories in high birth or gay attire. God who promised that He will provide a house for David will also provide a house for you, because you totally depend upon Him. The Lord God who is our helper called Ebenezer is with us, and is also with you, at times of struggles. So don’t lose heart. He will open new doors for you to flourish. In case you have more than necessary then give it others. Don’t fail to help someone in need because he might die and never return the next day to receive from you. God will be pleased with such people because the Bible says, and let our people also learn to maintain good works. To meet urgent needs, that they may not be unfruitful.
Your preservation and prosperity, and that of your family – depends on your righteousness. For the righteous man and his family will endure, in this world and the next, because God, men, and nature are on his side. May the Lord help you to live a righteous life and gain the appreciation of God rather involve in wickedness and die in sin and shame. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord help us to see better days in our life. We have suffered enough during lockdown period.

May we lead a Righteous life and not involve in wicked ways that would displease you. Be our Ebenezer in our life. Grant us house to live and secure a job to manage our livelihood. Help us to dwell in a peaceful habitation, and in quiet resting places.
