My Dear Brother and Sister 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 Job:29:6 says, “When my steps were bathed with cream, And the rock poured out rivers, of oil for me.”
My Dear Brother And Sister, from the above context we see how Job lived a luxurious life before he could go through affliction. He says, it was a time when the lamp of God shone over his head. When God Almighty was with him and all his children were around him. They were the most happy days of Job. So he thinks of the past days, and wonders how well it would be if he re-lived the past days in his life again. Those were the days when he was much respected by the young and the old. The young men when they saw him hid themselves in respect of him while the aged arose and stood before him. In those days, he used to be like a father to the poor, and he delivered the fatherless and the one who had no helper. But now the days had changed. He was filled with shame and horror. But he believed that God would soon , bring back good days in his life in the near future . So he patiently waited for those good days.
My Dear Brother And Sister, Many of you who are reading this message, are worried regarding your life, because all these years you have been a failure. You have never seen good days. But God promises to change all your failures into success. He is a God who changes our circumstances for the betterment of our life. You may be thinking, “Well when I take one step forward, I go back four steps backward. How can I ever live a happy life. When will I see good days in my life.” God says, hereafter, all your endeavours will be prosperous. You might have lost your job, because of Corona. So now you are thinking, “How I wish I got the same job which I was doing before. How I wish I got the same salary which I was drawing before Corona, then I would be able to manage my family. And my children’s education. You are only comparing your position with that of the past days, since now you are jobless. Are you like Job waiting for a change? You are thinking “How I wish, I would be able to enjoy the same happiness as I used to enjoy in the bygone days. While you are thinking in this manner, God has plans to prosper you.
My Dear Brother And Sister, God says, My thoughts, are not your thoughts, Nor your ways, My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth so are My ways, higher than your ways. And My thoughts than your thoughts. God wants to bless you with more than your expectation. He wants to bless you with a double portion of blessing. He wants you to reach the peak of your prosperity. God says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things, and be in health just as your soul prospers. This is the desire of God for mankind. So in future all that you do, will become successful. You shall not be a failure anymore. God will bring about a change in your life as He brought an expected change in the life of Job. But to be blessed by God you should not commit sin or murmur against God. Instead you should pray for others. Then God’s heart will soften over you and the lamp of God will shine over your head and you shall receive a double portion of blessing. And you will be honoured and respected by all. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, We thank You for blessing Job as he was blameless and righteous before you. And You gave him back all that he had lost in his life. Lord help us also to be faithful to You when trials come in our life. Teach us to pray for others, and be patient during tribulation. Help us to regain stability in life and get back all that we have lost, Our joy, our peace, our faith and love for God.
