Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that they Lord has given for you today is from the book of Job 42:2, “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.” Job says these words when he was in much pain at the peak of his affliction.
Job waited for the appointed time for the change in his life. Job was asking God as to when an end would come to all his affliction. You too might be going through a trying period like Job. You must have just come out of one tribulation but the next one would be on its way. You might have become very frustrated in your life. You may be facing problem because of your children or your husband or your in-laws. Hence you are facing a series of problems. You must be thinking as to when these problems would come to an end? The Lord is saying that today is the day of deliverance.
All your problems will soon come to an end. Job tells God, that it won’t be of any use if God did any good for him after his death. He wanted to be blessed while he was alive. He wanted to see a change in his life before his death. Job 14:14 says, “I am waiting for the day as to when my affliction will come to an end”. Though he suffered miserably, he had great faith in God. He knew that his hope will not be lost. He knew that after all his sufferings shame and distress; sickness and loss, affliction and grief there will surely be an end. God will not allow you to suffer beyond your strength. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, “And God is faithful, and he will not let you to be tempted beyond what you can bear. For He who promised is faithful”. Even though Job faced many problems in his life, he did not give up his faith in God. He knew that the Lord could do wonders for He is an Almighty God. Similarly, when you believe in Jesus and put your trust on Him, He will never test you beyond your capacity. He will deliver you from all your problems and you will shine for His glory. All you have to do is to wait for His appointed time.
God bless you.

Help Your children to live for Your glory. In Jesus name we pray,
