Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all
in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious
word of God that comes to you for today is taken from the book of
Daniel 12:3 “Those who are wise shall shine, like the brightness of
the firmament, And like the stars forever and ever.”
In this verse God is speaking to you about those who are wise. God
says through this verse that such wise people will shine. They will
shine like the stars that glitter in the sky. Like the brightness of the
firmament, And like the stars that shine forever and ever.” If you
carefully watch some of them will shine, over a particular period of
time. They will improve or shine for a season of time. They will live
and shine. After that season of time there would be no talk about
them. But God does not like that short duration of brightness in
your life. He wants you to shine forever. Like the brightness of the
firmament, And like the stars forever and ever.” You should shine
like the brightness of flame in the dark. God desires that you live
with good name and fame, it is told that you need to shine like the
bright stars forever and ever. What you need to do, to shine in life
like the stars, is to be wise. This is what God expects from you. So
ask God to give you that wisdom. Why is wisdom necessary? If you
have good wisdom you will be able to overcome sin and sinful life.
We read in the Bible, that we need to ask God if we lack wisdom.
The Bible says, “ If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God,
who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given
to him.” If you have the wisdom, then you will be cautioned when
wicked people gather around you. Or join you to lead you into
wickedness. Wisdom will help you to learn whether those people
are good or bad to have relationship. You would have heard people
say, “ Look he is a wise fellow.” He will handle any situation, very
tactfully.” You would have heard people speak like that. Wisdom
will tell you exactly why that person is approaching you, whether
he is good or bad, whether you can join him to have friendship or
not, whether he will have good relationship with you or if he will
lead you to wicked and evil ways because now a days you can’t
trust anybody. So it is wisdom that can direct you to make the right
decision. Therefore it is those who are filled with wisdom who can
discern what is right and what is wrong and it is they who will
shine, like the brightness of the firmament, And like the stars
forever and ever.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Some of you may be saying “I am
unable to shine in my life, I am unable to shine in my ministry, I am
not able to shine in my business. I can’t shine in my education. Not
able to shine at my work spot. I am in the darkness always. I am
not able to see the bright side of my life. To such kind of children
this message is good to know and understand the importance of
acquiring wisdom. I desire that you request God to grant you
wisdom, knowledge and good understanding to shine in your life.
We see Solomon praying to the Lord for wisdom, to rule over the
people of Israel. Solomon prayed to God saying, “Give your servant
an understanding mind… able to discern the difference between
good and evil.” And God gave him “a wise and discerning mind.”
Yes, wisdom is the ability to discern between right and wrong
which means right and wrong are real; good and evil exist. Similarly
you too need to ask God for wisdom. Why because if you have
wisdom you will be able to discern between the good and the bad.
So today you too should ask for wisdom and lead your life wisely.
The Bible also says, God gives wisdom to those who are good in his
sight. King Solomon the son of David prayed to the Lord for
wisdom. The Lord was very pleased with his prayer and gave him
not only wisdom but also wealth and riches which he did not ask
for. May the Lord help you to shine and progress in your life. You
should be a topper in your field. Then you will be a great person.
God will do great things in your life.
Prayer: Lord we thank You. Lord I bless all the children who are
reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord I pray for all those
who are pained at heart and also broken hearted, because they are
unable to shine in their life. Help them to be wise and thereby
shine, Like the brightness of the firmament, And like the stars
forever and ever.” You have promised your children to let them
shine like the stars forever and ever. Many of them are lingering in
the dark. Therefore they are unable to shine in their education, in
their business, in the job they do, and in their ministry. They are all
still in the dark, in all these phase of their life. Grant them wisdom
so that they may shine in their life. Give them all a bright future. Let
them be bright in their studies, in their business they do, in the
work spot, and also in their ministry. Help them to lead a bright life
both in the spiritual and worldly aspect of their life. Lord you said,
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all
liberally and without reproach. Teach your children to ask of God
for wisdom. I earnestly pray that God grant them wisdom that they
may discern between good and the bad.
In Jesus Name we pray.
