You Shall Be A Threshing Sledge. - Bro. T. Stephen
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 of Isaiah 41:15,16 , “I will make you into a new threshing sledge, with sharp teeth. You shall thresh the Mountains, and beat them, small. And make the hills like chaff. You Shall Rejoice in the Lord. And glory in the Holy one of Israel.”
From the above context we come to understand that God wants to make you into a new threshing sledge in this New Year. For God says, “I will make you into a new threshing sledge, with sharp teeth. You will be a sharp instrument that can drill the mountains and crush them into dust.
May be in the past you might have been a dull and blunt instrument, with sharp less edges that cannot drill the mountain or the hill. You were not a useful instrument all this while. And in such a situation you cannot be of much benefit to yourself or to the society. God knows your strength and your weakness. Your intelligence and wisdom, has become blunt due to various reasons. And He is aware of all the problems and tribulations that you need to face while you are in this world. God does not wish that you be passive or inactive, but he wants to prepare you for a better task. God does not want you to be in a blunt or useless manner.
God wants to rebuild that blunt life of yours into a useful and sharp instrument, so that you may be capable of solving all the problems that rises in your life. For He says, In this world you will have tribulation and trials and you need the strength to face these problems. God knows that your wisdom and knowledge is not enough to help you face your problems. That is why in the very beginning of this verse God says, “I shall make you into a sharp instrument, to thresh the mountains, and beat them small. We are living in a world full of revenge, a world of competition, trials and jealousy. And if you need to live a victorious life, in this world, then you need a sharp edged instrument, which means you, need to have sharp wisdom.
In a deceptive world, where all people, cannot be trusted, you need to be wise, to deal with them. You need sharpness in your wisdom, to survive in this wicked world. God expects that you have sharp and efficient wisdom. Only then you will be victorious and also be able to move forward. Only then you will be able to crush down the mountain like problems that stand before you. With sharp wisdom, and knowledge you will be able to crush down the mountain like problems that crops up in your life. Then you will be able to rejoice in the Lord and Glorify the Holy one. To live a peaceful life God is speaking as prophesy that your children who are dull and inefficient, will become wise and efficient. They will do well not only in their studies but also shine in their career. They will become greater and greater in their life as God has promised to bless your descendants. The Lord declares that there is hope for your future. All your children will be taught of the Lord. And the well being of your children shall be great upon the earth. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord for making us into new threshing sledge with sharp teeth that we may be able to drill the mountain and hills into dust. Help us to face the challenges boldly with sharp wisdom and knowledge. May we be able to crush down the mountain like problems that often crops up in our life, and live a victorious life so that we may rejoice in the Lord and glory in the Holy One.
