IN MESSAGE

Trials and problems happen to the best of people and the best of people seem to know how to cope with them. In built within them is the assurance that if dealt with correctly they will yield great profit besides pain. They are looked on as stepping stones into much bigger and better factors. They are to be faced and used to transform the future. Paul appeared, for a time to be located in a Philippian jail. There were Christian believers who thought this wasn’t good that a chief messenger of the Gospel should be locked up! Paul says that his imprisonment was leading to its circulation even to some the Roman soldiers. That couldn’t be bad! Often the trials of life lead to greater accomplishments. So if you are in a spot of difficulty, do not lose patience and faith. It could be the best thing that occurred to you!

WISE SAYINGS

“The soul of the sluggard desireth, and hath nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made fat” – Proverbs 13:4

The doors of opportunity are marked .Push’ and ‘Pull.’ It is vital that you really do make something of your character yhat becomes profitable and noticeable.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee. Neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee” – Isaiah 54:10. Although much disturbs outward mountains and hills being removed, one thing is sure: His steadfast love and commitment can be relied upon. They may fail but he will ever live up to His guarantees. Happily, He is always in a place and position when He can live up His promises. He retains strength of affection for you and guarantees He will look after you all the way from earth to heaven. Have a good trip!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

A PERSONAL MESSAGE – Jeremiah 45

God gave to Jeremiah in the early part of his prophetic career a man who would be both friend and scribe, Baruch by name. He was to prove to be a valuable partner in his work and be a source of strength and support. It was not to be an easy role for him to fulfil seeing he was joined with one who was to be persecuted and ostracized. It does appear that it was not a comfortable position to act in. From vv2, 3 there is a revelation on how he felt. “I am overwhelmed with trouble! Haven’t I had enough pain already? And now the Lord has added more! I am weary of my own sighing and can find no rest.” The Lord had observed him and his state and had a word for him.

It looked as if he had got his thoughts mixed up and there was not a pure motivation from within, so he needed sorting out in a gracious way. The Lord says: “Seekest thou great things for thyself? Seek them not” –v5. It was most important that he accomplish God’s will and purpose for his life even though it meant difficulty, trial and pain. He could rest assured within the whole outworking that He was under the watchful and caring eye and hand of the Lord. A divine preservation order had been placed upon his life so he had nothing to fear and worry about.

It is good to know that the Lord knows the conditions in which His servants are called to operate in and can speak the apt word into situations when required. When circumstances are in a state of trauma and upheaval and the effect of such is creating a lot of questions, He knows how to deal with His servants. It is a time when the inward condition demands some possible rectification in terms of motives. As you pursue the plan and glory of God for your life, painful though it may it be at times, know He will keep you and make the experiences profitable.
