Dearly beloved in Christ, 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 Joel 2:24—26 “The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten, the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm,, my great army that I sent among you. You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the Lord your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.”
God is going to lead you, in a miraculous way. Halleluiah! You will have plenty to eat, until you are full and you will praise the name of the Lord, who has done wonders for you. Not the eyes of the strangers but your own eye shall see this. Many would have made fun of you, and laughed at you, since you went through great loss and misery. They would say, “Look you started business but, you went for a toss.”You have come on to the street. “Many would have laughed at you seeing your downfall. But this year the Lord will exalt you and make your name great with fame and praise. For God says, My people will never be put to shame. He will never put you to shame.
This reminds me of a sister who came to our prayer meeting, which is conducted every month in BKN Auditorium Vepery. She has been watching our programmes telecasted in Sathiyam channel and she has been blessed in her business and in her personal life. In one such meeting she gave her testimony. She is not a Believer but a very wealthy lady. She said, by hearing our messages daily she had faith in the Lord . She does business and has wealth, worth crores of rupees. But unfortunately one of her client came to collect his money that she had borrowed to run her business. On that particular day she did not have the required money of 15 lakhs, to return the person from whom she had borrowed. So he disgraced her, spoke ill of her and behaved in a rude manner. He went away hurting her for not returning the money on time. She was badly hurt. She couldn’t bear to think that she was unable to pay the man 15 lakhs, even though she had crores of money. She was humiliated. She felt ashamed. But as usual she began watching the programme, which comforted her the most. The Lord spoke to her through my message, I said, as prophesy, “Tomorrow you shall receive the needed amount to repay the man, who disgraced you.” She was shocked to hear this from my message. Her curiosity was to know how I got to know her problem. But it is the Lord’s way of dealing with people. She thought she would wait to see what miracle would happen the next day. And to her surprise another client who had borrowed 18 lakhs some years ago and had absconded, came back to return the amount he had borrowed from her. He said, he was sorry for cheating her and handed over the amount of Rs, 18 lakhs. She was bewildered and shocked, to see this big amount in her hand, the very next day, as she had heard through my message. She believed in Jesus, that He was a wonder working God. She returned to the man 15 lakhs from whom she had borrowed earlier. This testimony encouraged other business people who had gathered there for the meeting. God who performed miracle for this sister, will He not meet your needs? Trust in Jesus. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. … Remember the LORD in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. You will prosper. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, it is amazing to know how You performed a miracle for that sister. It is unimaginable to understand how the man brought back the 18 lakhs of rupees and returned to her. We see the working of God in her life. Lord work in our lives also. Increase our faith in You, that we may grow strong in the Lord. Be gracious to us.
