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 Isaiah 41:15, 16,  “Behold I will make you into a new threshing sledge with sharp teeth. You shall thresh the mountains and beat them small. And make the hill like chaff. You shall winnow them; the wind shall carry them away. And the whirlwind shall carry. Shall scatter  them. You shall rejoice in the Lord. And glory in the holy One of Israel. ”

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above context we understand, that  the object of the illustration in the verse is to show that God would clothe you with His power and that all your difficulties will vanish. To express this idea, the Prophet uses an image derived from the mode of threshing in the East when the heavy sledge was made to pass over. A large   pile, of sheaves and to bruise out the grain and separate the chaff so that the wind would drive it away.

“I will make thee” means, “I will appoint thee,”  that is, you shall be a threshing instrument by which you should remove all the obstacles in the way as a threshing sledge and crush  them as dust in order to be victorious in your life.    

God says, this new year, God will make you a threshing sledge, with sharp teeth. May be last year you might have  been  blunt  and because of   this  you might have faced difficult  consequences in life. You might have   behaved   unwisely and foolishly as  wisdom had been blunt and spoilt  and  you have been so senseless. But in the new  year, God wants to rebuild you to a sharp threshing sledge.

My Dear Brothers and Sisters, In this world there is affliction and tribulation throughout your life. And if you must withstand the struggles of this world, you just can’t manage with blunt equipment but you need  an instrument with sharp teeth with  which you can tear down those who suppress you. Your sharp less wisdom and knowledge is insufficient for you to face the challenges of this world, that is why this verse says, “Behold I will make you into a new threshing sledge with sharp teeth.”  We are living in a fearful world. Surrounded with many dangerous problems. Where there is much jealousy and competition. This world is filled with anger and revenge. We are living in a world with tribulation and affliction. And to live a victorious life in this world, we need to have sharpened wisdom and knowledge.  When   people  of this corrupt world are living   without truth, God expects you to have sharp sense of wisdom, and good understanding,   to face the battle that confronts you. You need to be intelligent.  Only then you can face the mountainous problems   that stand   against   you   and  crush them  into small bits and make them like chaff. Only then can you rejoice in the Lord. And give glory to the Holy One of Israel. God bless you.

Prayer: Our loving heavenly father, we thank you for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for making us, as threshing sledge with sharp teeth. We praise you for making us fit to face the problems of this world. Make us to rejoice in the Lord and glorify in the Holy One of Israel.

In Jesus name we pray.
