Because Christ conquered, so you can, too. Be a daily conqueror over every enemy that would beset and seek to destroy you. Learn to know and believe who Christ is and what He has wrought for you and what He now is making you. You are in the driving seat with Him and His dynamic is in you to triumph on a daily basis, adding victory to victory. You can say with Paul: “Thanks be unto God who always causeth us to triumph in Christ” – 2 Corinthians 2:14.


The death of Christ secured your forgiveness from sin but the resurrection of Christ ensures your freedom from and victory over sin. It is possible now to Thought for the Day follows an instructive theme for everyday of the Week. In the next few days we will be considering ‘patience” If there is one thing that history and present day living teaches us, it is this: we live in a world of where there is a demand for a great deal of patience. It is that superb quality that brings calm, composure and balance and enables a person to wait and plan for the outworking of factors to highest good. The sin of impatience often ruins things and the person concerned. So it is a factor that such figure high in our thoughts and creation.


We are taught in Hebrews 6: 12 this vital principle in our dealings with God that we learn from our forbears: “That you be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises”. There is something else required besides faith. It is capacity to trust quietly and wait for the final outcome although tested over a period of time which can appear to be rather lengthy, one must learn to be patient.

It comes very much to the front in the life of the great patriarch. Late in life God promised a son to be born unto Sara. She was already in the stage where child-bearing had ceased. Her womb was now dead, incapable of producing a baby. And then years went by to make the thi thing seemingly more impossible. Abraham and she had to wait indefinitely until it was the right time. During that period they had to possess this great quality, patience. Had he got the staying stamina to quietly and confidently wait the apt time?

Well, history and events prove that the patience factor was not vain or a waste of time.  God was faithful and at the right moment caused things to happen of an incredible nature. Many have been inspired by the example of this patriarch and the news is, God still works in this manner. He can and will give you a prophetic word of promise. It may not be fulfilled overnight, but be sure of this, He will do what He says. You can live in anticipation of it, and patiently wait!

The Lord makes it perfectly clear that He is in charge and that He has planned and purposed things, people and events. There is the declaration also that He made the earth, the people on it, the heavens and all the stars – v12. He is most skilled and able in being able to do things after the counsel of His own will. In no way should He be left out of the affairs of life but that He is bringing things to pass according to His masterly designs. Being the Creator of the universe and this world He knows what He is about in relation to all.

The context indicates that He has chosen a man by the name of Cyrus to attend to the destiny of His people in their release and other things – vv1-6. He is an instrument in God’s hands to achieve His programme for the blessedness of His own and to bring glory to His Name. Israel is going to benefit from the success of this man in warfare. In forecasting the fact the Lord is showing both to him and His people who is running things. They can rest in faith that the Lord will not leave them forsaken in a foreign land but will show His sovereign power.

How welcome is this knowledge to all who have pinned their trust in Him! The Lord is never in a state of emergency wondering what to do and how to react to a seeming impossible circumstance with regard to His people. Know today that He is the Divine Architect that has all before Him and sorted out to the utmost degree. Be assured, He is still works and uses outside forces and personnel to benefit those who believe and place their faith in Him. He still expresses His supreme proficiency in handling the extreme circumstances of His chosen ones by even using the outsider for His peoples’ advantage. Expect Him to do it, and He will.
