A GOLDEN PROMISE from the Bible

GREAT RETURNS

“He that watereth shall be watered himself” – Proverbs 11: 25. It is a case of fulfilling the condition and then the promise comes into effect. You are called upon by the Lord to release the resource that is yours in affording to others in their need and the great response for Him comes into being. You may have your limitations but your Lord has none whatsoever. As you do what you can for others it opens the way for the Lord to reply and answer in a lavished fashion. C.H.Spurgeon wrote: ‘My tank is getting very low; no fresh rain comes to fill it; what shall I do? I will pull up the plug, and let its contents run out to water the withering plants around me. What do I see? My cistern seems to fill as it flows. A secret spring is at work. While all was stagnant the fresh spring was sealed; but as my stock flows out to water others the Lord thinketh on me” So you know what to obtain an overflowing life and ministry!

Thought for the Day

ARMED AND TRAINED

You have been called and enlisted in the army of the Lord. He has summoned and elected you to be a soldier within His eternal kingdom. As Commander in Chief, Christ has desired you be suitably armed and properly equipped so that you might engage the evil forces that arrayed are against His Church and you and be continually victorious. He is with you to nerve, sustain and render all the resources so as  to give daily conquest. Sin, Satan and self are rendered powerless as you armed, trained and resourced by Him. He is with you to battle and overcome always. So record the personal triumphs today and be honoured by Him. There is an honours Day on the wing at His return and he desires that will be found amongst those who have ‘fought the good fight’ and known outstanding conquests.

QUOTES TO NOTE – Desmund Tutu

You don’t choose your family. They are God’s gift to you, as you are to them.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

MEDITATION’S VALUE – Matthew 1: 18-25

On face value, as things looked, it would seem that Mary had known relationship with another man because she was pregnant with child and this disturbed Joseph –v18. It was certainly natural for Joseph to be uneasy in his mind and being as it seemed that his espoused wife had not been faithful. He was both a good and wise man because he wanted to do the right and choice thing. The reaction at first was to meditate – “And while he thought on these things” – v20. He did not erupt and create a fuss and ado and charge her with wrong doing. The thing had to be handled in the best and most gracious way.

Because he took this course of action, the Lord resolved the matter for him and stopped him from acting rashly and he was able to become a partner in God’s purpose and program. Whilst asleep, an angel appeared to him and made clear the cause of her being with child – v20, and also gave revelation of the child that was to be named Jesus because He was to be the Saviour of the world. She was the bearer of the Christ child. He was going to have the privilege of being known as the earthly father and of parenting this offspring on behalf of the God and mankind.

Sometimes there are things that occur on the surface that appear to be somewhat wrong. The immediate response would be to judge quickly and make hasty decisions. It is needful on these occasions to spend a healthy period in true and wholesome meditation, conversing with the Lord and finding out the finest way of solving the difficulty and dilemma. He has a way of putting the proper perspective on everything and of giving the right answer and the way forward.
