Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Hebrews 11:1, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen”. Everyone will have to go through trials and tribulations in this world. During the time of struggle, you need to have faith and a strong prayer life.
The bible says that Job was a man of faith. Job said “I have lost my wealth, my cattle and above all my children, and my flesh stinks and has become rotten, even though he slays me, I will keep trusting in Him.” His faith was unshakeable. You need to have this kind of faith. It is this faith that will lead you to a bright future. Are you worried that you are not married yet? It is this faith that will lead you to conduct your marriage. It is this faith that will open your womb that had been closed for several years and it is this faith that will lead you to reach a glorious height. Faith enables you to secure a job and will help you to close all your debts. Have faith in God. Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross for your wellbeing.
Job lived by faith. He knew that he should walk by faith and not by sight. That is why he was able to say, “The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away.” He had immense faith in God. Therefore God turned his sorrow into joy. The Lord blessed the latter days, of Job more than his beginning.
Similarly, just like Job, you must also develop this faith on God. Even if you go through the toughest situations, do not lose your faith in God. You might be put to test. Whatever be the situation, stand firm in your faith in God. The Lord will do mighty wonders.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, there are times when Your children go through a lot of problems and lose faith in You. I pray that You may increase their faith in you. Father, I thank you for instilling the spirit of faith in Your dear children. May they walk by faith and not by sight every day of their lives. In Jesus Name we pray,
