IN MESSAGE

The Lord has not promised that everything will be easy for you. There will be difficult experiences for you to negotiate requiring a great deal of composure and confidence. It will be quite easy to misunderstand and misinterpret them and so find yourself disturbed and distressed. Withhold judgment and human reason for such will not prove helpful or fruitful. There will come the answer of heaven in its providential time and you will not be left nursing failure. Look to Him to strengthen and fortify and He will do and enable your life to grow amidst the happenings and such will glorify Him. He will take you through everything to ultimate profit!

WISE SAYINGS

“Not that I speak in respect to want: for i have learned, in whatsoever state I am. Therewith to be content” – Philippians 4:11

Contentment isn’t getting what we want but being satisfied with what we have. It is a restful state of mind, spirit and being with your circumstances whether good or bad.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

A widowed woman believed the message of a prophet and so saw a major miracle take place when things really looked bad. All she had left at a time of drought was a cruse of oil and a little meal that looked to be her last. There was no more in the store. Her faith was challenged. Elijah said ‘make me a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after that make for you and your son” – 1 Kings 17:13. She discovered that Jehovah and the prophet truly cared for her future and so supernatural provision took place. There was no need for her to overly worry about the days ahead for she discovered ‘Jehovah Jireh’ in her extreme situation. And He is still up to performing for you amidst your impossible circumstances.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

FALSE SECURITY – Jeremiah 49

It is possible to live in a seeming impregnable position and begin to sense a great strength of security. The conviction takes over that because of the powerful defenced situation that no one and nothing will be able to overtake and overcome. This is how the Edomites felt in their lofty stronghold. It states: “you are proud because you live in a rock fortress and hide in the mountains” – v16. They fostered the idea that because they were in such a favoured place they would continue and ever be a threat to others but never threatened. They would never be mastered!

The warning comes from the Lord that this will not be the case and that they have every reason to be concerned because they will be subjected to conflict and conquest. The forecast is that it will become as Sodom and Gomorrah, a place ruined by violent enemies. All that they thought would be alright would prove to be vain reasoning. Simply trusting in the natural surrounding and circumstances would be seen to be a false factor. All that they had pinned their faith and hope in would be a complete let down because the true God had not been their trust and confidence. Reliance on external consideration was totally inadequate.

There has to be a constant examination in life on the real grounds of assurance and hope. Many people have a false sense of security and know it not. Mere reliance on things, placement and property can never be a substitute for a true and real trust in the living God. The best and only worthwhile assurance of protection and blessedness is to be found in God alone. It is good to be able to say with the psalmist and know it: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” – Psalm 46: 1. He is secure and all who trust Him possess His security.

IN MESSAGE

Christ came as the Light of the World to light you up and your world – John 8:12. The consequence of this is that you become His Light radiating life where you are. In a very quiet and forceful manner you diffuse and suffuse His Light so that others may become switched onto Him. Through your attitudes, words and deeds you shed genuine truth and knowledge regarding Him and His accomplishment and so others become illuminated and transformed by His radiant light. The prince of darkness, Satan, would do the opposite, fill and keep people in darkness, but you can and must counteract all his actions by truly dispensing light of day, the Light of Christ and His salvation.

WISE SAYINGS

“He who ignores discipline despises himself, but whoever heeds correction gains understanding” – Proverbs 15:32 (NIV)

The best way to be successful is to to follow the advice you give to others. Discipline is what builds good structure that leads to a permanent good stature.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

The assurance is given that prayer will be answered in if persisted in faith and the right way. Jesus stated on the mount in his talk on the Beatitudes; “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened to you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth;; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” – Matthew 7: 7, 8. There is little doubt that your Father desires that you should seek and talk to Him and ask for what yopu require. God is ever benevolent to His offspring and is in the position where He can always hear and answer. Do not despair in this. Maybe He is enlarging your position and prospects at this hour and is ready to do for you more than you can ask or think – Ephesians 3:20,

DAILY MEDITATIONS

CARED FOR– Jeremiah 47 &48

In making a pronouncement of judgment upon Moab the prophet asserts a curse on a certain person or group of people. He states: “Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord negligently” – 48: 10. Even with regard to such a serious issue the Lord was observing how this matter was to be carried out and noted the fact that with regard to some they lacked real commitment and attention to the job in hand. They were very slack and slothful in doing what was really expected of them and so warranted this very strong sentence against their attitude.

Negligence is really a heedlessness that pays little respect to the person who gives the directive and to the task assigned. In this case it was serious because it appertained to the Lord. He had given His order to mete out justice to Moab and there were those who treated the issue with sheer indifference. There was no mind, will or energy employed in seeking to fulfil to detail what He had decreed. In consequence of this, the Lord calls them, cursed. This is the opposite of blessing. They could not expect the favour and goodness of the Lord because of it.

How guarded Christians must be that they do not allow an indifferent spirit and a negligent attitude to God, His word and work to waylay them. There has to be a quick state of mind and a readiness to implement fully all that He has revealed and determines to be done. Neglect is a thing that God abominates and sentences it accordingly. Keep a tab on your life and work and be committed to the Lord at all times in all that He calls you to be and do. Keep on fire and ready to wholly do all that He commands and requires. Herein is your safety and blessedness.

IN MESSAGE

There is much occurring in the world that would strike terror in your heart. Being alive in the last days is quite a privilege as you see the end drawing near for the return of Christ. But there are awful things to be witnessed in readiness for His coming. Whilst there are great movements of God to bring to countless numbers, there is the terrible disclosure of evil making things exceptionally corrupt and destructive. Modern technology has only intensified and underlined matters and revealing the abhorrence of sin. The return of Christ is a must to save the world from the mess that it it is in. Thankfully, as Christians, we can be at peace in spite of the awful conditions. Jesus said: “Let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me” – John 14:1.

WISE SAYINGS

“Now therefore perform the doing of it; that as there was a readiness to will, so there may be a performance also of that which you have” – 2 Corinthians 8:11

You cannot win if you do not begin. Having initially started and made progress, such will turn into a strong incentive to complete and give complete satisfaction.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Well done good and faithful servant, ‘Enter into the joy of your LORD’ “– Luke 25:21. Loyal and constant work will finally be recompensed by Him that oversees your life, testimony and ministry. You can be assured; He does not miss a thing but is aware of the intimate detail, the private as the public service. He has a well-kept record of your doings and He is the One that seeks to be with and to inspire to great and good deeds that will be justifiably rewarded in the ultimate day of accountability. You have already accomplished much for Him and His kingdom and He anticipates the moment when He will reward you openly to a vast multitude. Whist it will be a honouring experience it will be a humbling one, too. You will be overwhelmed by the fact that He will reward you and you will be blessed by the reward!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

VAIN BOASTING – Jeremiah 46

The Lord had a word to say into the nation of Egypt. She was feeling rather proud and arrogant at this time and believed should face and take on the military might of other nations, even the up and coming Babylonians. There was a boasting of their numbers and strength and the Lord had taken note. In vv7, 8 this is recorded: “Who is this, rising like the River Nile at floodtide, overflowing all the land? It is the Egyptian army, boasting that it will cover the earth like a flood, destroying every foe.” It appears in invincible and big-headed mood thinking that it could take everyone on and win.

Really it was vain boasting and so a prophecy comes from Jeremiah asserting their days are numbered. The bubble will burst and it will find itself in retreat and devastation. All their pride will be dealt with as they are publicly humiliated by the Babylonians. The message was given to help Judah not to place its confidence in such a power because their days were numbered. Regrettably they chose to turn to Egypt only to find the word of the Lord coming to pass. The best course of action was to sincerely and humbly trust the Lord who had purposed their destiny.

In a world of proud people and nations that that place their faith in their own wit, strength and resources, Christians must ascertain where their confidence resides. The principle in life that is enacted by the Lord is there will be a humbling of the proud and self sufficient. Let your boast be in the Lord at all times and in His ability to be with you and to look after all your interests. It is an utter vanity to place one’s hopes in men. Remember Jeremiah 17: 5 – “Cursed is the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.”

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.

IN MESSAGE

Servant-hood is what you have been called to as well as son-ship. You serve your Father as a son and humbly seek to accomplish His great design for your new life within His Family. Whilst it is a blessing to be served and waited upon, the greatest feature is when you truly give yourself in looking after others. What an exciting moment when Christ fed and served five thousand people! What a joyful thing that the disciples and apostles could be involved in looking after the multitude! So take the opportunity of rendering some good to others because your labour of love for the LORD will not be over-looked.

WISE SAYINGS

“You have been a faithful over a few things: I will make you a ruler many things: enter into the joy of your LORD” – Matthew 25:21

It is the little things that determine the big things. They are the beginning and foundation of something monumental for God and your future vocation.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

Christ has come to bring and give you an extraordinary life. He says to you as well as those who heard when He was here: “I Am come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly” – John 10:10. Make sure that this is what you are receiving and knowing now. With Christ indwelling and imparting His presence and power, life is lived with a new driving quality and force. What was impossible to you before becomes possible! Your life becomes a vibrant and obvious testimony to His existence and faithfulness. So draw on Him today and break out into a life-style that proclaims HIM!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

LESSONS NOT LEARNED – Jeremiah 44

One would have thought that the catalogue of judgments that had fallen upon God’s professed people that they would have been awakened out of their spiritual stupor and sought amendment in their faith conduct toward the Lord. But this was not to be. Arriving in Egypt, they immediately embrace the idolatrous system of the nation and reveal offensiveness towards the Lord. There was no spirit of regret or repentance to Him, rather the opposite: rebellion and rejection. They were not willing to act sensibly and spiritually and seek an accord with Him.

The Lord did not allow matters to rest but uses His servant to bring a message into the situation. Jeremiah challenges their wicked behaviour and puts the Lord’s side to the people showing that they were where they were because of the failure to honour Him and His Word. But they were both dense and deaf to the new overture from God and were not ready to learn the lesson. In no uncertain terms the prophet declares that they will be judged as well as Egypt and only a small remnant will escape. It is sad to read of the failure again of the people of God.

Vigilance must be exercised by every Christian believer so that they are not guilty of being in the situation where they refuse to learn the things that God is emphasizing in their experience especially if it is in relation to some sinful practice. It should never be thought that He will continually overlook or condone such. All evil must be repented of and forsaken. He should be known and honoured in every area of life. As the Lord speaks and works within your life, be certain there is nothing that will be an offence to Him. Keep your relationship sound and sweet.

IN MESSAGE

Choices will have to be made today of importance. Before you make ultimate decisions fully consider and comprehend their implications, what they will finally produce. Do not select the quick and less demanding factors thinking of a speedy outcome that may yield some profit. The long term requirements may well be the factors that will yield the most and bring great profit and pleasure. The wise man as Christ pointed out: he builds on rock to make certain that at the end all will end well. Good decisions save from mistakes and create immense satisfaction in the final conclusions.

A WISE SAYING

“Martha, Martha, You are careful about many things: but one thing is needful: and Mary has chosen the better part, which shall not be taken away from her” – Luke 10:40-42. The fact that this was spoken by Christ shows its infinite value. To sit at His feet and learn from is priority and is the most rewarding exercise. Do not mistake activity for achievement. Busyness does not equally productiveness.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

“Who satisfieth your mouth with good things; so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” – Psalm 103:4.There is no one that can fully satisfy the soul and life like the LORD, after all He created and knows what are the things that give the best in terms of satisfaction. He is the BEST and gives the Bests and we are at our Best when we learn to receive the BEST. Take time therefore today to draw nigh to Him, to wait before Him and let Him spread His bounteous table loaded with His goodies. You will not have to go elsewhere because all you need will be more than met in His provisions.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

NO ESCAPE – Jeremiah 43

It was a difficult spot for Jeremiah to be in. The officials who had seemingly wanted divine direction now turn against him and brand him a liar and do the opposite to what the Lord had said. They even made the prophet go with them along the path of disobedience in taking their flight to Egypt. There was no submissive will to the revelation that God had given. They would have been safe and secure in their homeland rather than taking this journey which only would result in further heartache. The opportunity to exercise faith in God’s Word was lost in the spirit of rebellion that prevailed amongst them. It would lead to further undoing.

On arrival in Egypt God gives an unfolding what is to take place there. The news given was that Nebuchadnezzar would invade and have success there in the ransacking of the place and the carrying away of captives. The disclosure therefore makes known the fact that it had been completely stupid and a waste of time and energy to have embarked on this enterprise. There was to be no escape from the Babylonians or from God. Running away from God and His purpose would end up disastrously. They would be in a far worse situation because of their sin.

Indeed, there is a major lesson to be drawn from this particular incident. It is possible to seek to escape from a tough situation and experience only to find oneself in deeper and darker waters. Far better to stay in certain conditions, knowing that the Lord has given His word of assurance in terms of protection than in getting away from under His covering. You may be in a circumstance right now where all looks to be one of fear and foreboding but the Lord is calling for your trust and commitment. Know this, He will secure and make the thing serve you.

IN MESSAGE

Know that your LORD is always progressive and going places. As you are dynamically joined with Him so it will be true of you. It is not a case of simply where you have come from but where are moving ahead into. He will give the inspired vision and vocation and supply the wherewithal whereby you will tread the path of accomplishment and conquest. There will be obstacles and oppositions but they will not be permitted to hinder anything He has set out. You have only one opportunity to succeed and it must not be allowed to slip by. Let the inward determination that has been birthed in you dictate, and you will finish a winner, having achieved all the LORD willed for you. How glad and grateful you will be in that day!

A WISE SAYING

“And you fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the LORD” – Ephesians 6:4

No man ever really finds out what he believes in until he begins to instruct his children. If a man is himself instructed by the LORD then he is in a strong and healthy position to direct his offspring.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

The assurance given by the apostle John is – “you are a son of God” – 1 John 3:1. This being so, he adds: “greater is He that is within you, than he that is in the world” – 1 John 4:4. This places you in the advantaged position. As Christ totally overcame Satan and all His hosts single-handed, He is now inside and alongside to continue the triumph. Your state could not be better or greater. Faith in Him ensures that you, too, will blaze forth and not be intimated by what appears against. Remember the choice words of Paul when He said: “If God be for us, who can be against us?” – Romans 8:31. Be girded by this knowledge and emerge from every contest the conqueror. Amen!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

DECEITFULNESS – Jeremiah 42

The prophet had previously stated the nature of the human heart as being ‘deceitful and desperately wicked’ and it comes out in this particular incident. The remnant that had experienced such pressure came to him to seek the Lord for guidance in the light of the previous appalling events. What should they do? Surely the Babylonians would be antagonistic towards them because their soldiers had been slain who had been with Gedaliah. Things didn’t look too favourable and it was needful to have the mind of the Lord so that they could make the right decision for the future.

A reply did come from the Lord after ten days affirming the fact they must stay put in the land. There was nothing to fear because the Lord would see to their welfare and cause the Babylonians to be kind to them. This surely was the best news possible. All they could wish would be theirs. But then the Lord gives a salutary warning not to go to Egypt because if they did it would turn out disastrously. One would have thought they would have believed and responded in the light of the fact that he had proved to be a true messenger. But then God’s servant exposes their deceitfulness v20 and reveals their dishonest approach. It was a foolish evil.

Certainly, in one’s dealings with God and others, it is requisite that there be absolute integrity and truthfulness. This ought to be so in prayer in seeking God’s will and pleasure. He knows above all whether the seeker and prayer is of a pure character and acts accordingly. It is imperative in your outreach to the Lord that all mixed motives be purged so that He approves of you and your requests. After all and above all, He has your continual welfare and interests at heart.

IN MESSAGE

Never forget in your pilgrim journey through this life the vital thing to pursue is relationship with and likeness to Christ. The old hymn placed the emphasis aright with the words: ‘Never lose sight of Jesus’. Such is in accord with the Scriptures when it says: ‘Looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our Faith” – Hebrews 12:1. You will never go wrong or astray as you maintain this vision, passion and action and there will be an ever growing into His likeness. Both He and you will be delighted with this occurring. In fact, others will get the message, like the image shown and desire to be inspired by your example. You will see the Christianising of the Church and World by your devotion to Him.

A WISE SAYING

“Be not deceived, God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” – Galatians 6:7

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. In sowing and spreading that which is wholesome and good, the inevitable result is the returns are similar and even more blessed and bountiful.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

The assurance for you today is, to know the glorious quickening of God’s Spirit in your being and to note the difference He makes. In Romans 8: 11 you are informed: “But if the Spirit of Him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, He that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwelleth in you.” Note that He does not come as a quiet resident to sit around to observe, but to minister life, power and energy and all the wherewithal to live a potent life. God does not want any of His sons simply scraping through but has provided the best to enable them to live a full and dynamic life. So learn to draw upon the vast reserves latent in the Holy Spirit. They are to be patent in you!

DAILY MEDITATIONS

BEING HEEDLESS – Jeremiah 40 & 41

In spite of all the things that had occurred in bringing judgment, the favour of the Lord was manifested through the Babylonians to a remnant. A man by the name of Gedaliah was made the governor. His job was to rule and look after those that had been left and see to their welfare. God’s servant, Jeremiah, chose to stay with this company and things appeared to go quite well. A number of the guerrilla bands in the land became supportive and folks began to return and rebuild. The prospects looked pretty good when considering what they had passed through.

News reached the guerrilla leaders that someone by the name of Ishmael was plotting the removal of the governor and they informed him of it. They wanted to deal with the matter and eliminate him for the sake of the people but he forbade it. The sad thing was that he played right into the hands of this evil, designing individual by inviting him and his cohorts to a meal that turned into a tragedy. It was an unwise thing to do and so he and his officials lost their lives. The warning that had been given was totally disregarded and so many suffered because of it. He even failed to have around those who could defend should something go wrong.

It is expected that there should be a state of vigilance in the experience of the Christian believer. How essential it is there should be a safeguarding of life and faith in the presence of an evil world where there are those that would design and effect spiritual downfall! Many have been seduced and sidetracked and have been wrecked because they failed to heed the warning signs and messages that the Lord sent through others. Be reminded: “your adversary the devil goes around seeking whom he may devour.” Do not become one of his victims. Be alert to things!

IN MESSAGE

Never stop short of the goals and objectives set before you. May the perspectives and incentives the LORD has imparted be present and motivational at all times. Whatever He has given must be constantly fed, nourished and exercised if the best results are to be attained. As you see others around you bent on succeeding in their natural and earthly professions, realise you are aiming for something bigger and eternal. Your sight and commitment must always be properly focused and as you retain a faith and ardency so you will be amazed at what has ultimately come through your labour and doings. You will not have spent yourself for vanity!

A WISE SAYING

“My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: for whom the Lord loveth He chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom He receiveth” – Hebrews 12: 5b,6

As your heavenly Father He knows the best and profitable ways to discipline His sons. Remember: He always has your present and eternal interests at heart. Neither He nor you want to be disappointed with the results.

PROMISES TO BE EXPERIENCED

The word is: “Thou wilt show me the path of life: In Thy presence there is fullness of joy; and at Thy right hand are pleasures for evermore2 – Psalm 16: 11. To be truly and fully exhilarated and satisfied in and with life, there is the need to know the LORD and live within His presence. Better still, allow Him to live in you and His being with you will cause to enjoy life to the full. He has everything you require to make you contented, secure and fulfilled and knows how to turn things on to a greater state of pleasure and delight. Learn today to live close to Him and you will sense and know Him bringing things to pass in and through you that will be one of incredible and untold joy. He is always at hand to grant you those things that will enrich in every way.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

CARED FOR– Jeremiah 39

There is no doubt about it; the Lord does know how to take care of His own in troublesome times. As Jeremiah had been faithful to the Lord in delivering His word to His people, so in return, when the prophecies came to pass, He would preserve him in the hour of need. Instead of being subjected to torture, captivity or death, he was to be wonderfully looked after by the enemy. They showed immense kindness to him by releasing and giving command over his welfare. The word was: “See that he isn’t hurt. Look after him well, and give him anything he wants” v12.

The man who had previously befriended him, Ebed-melech, was also guaranteed security in those trying conditions. God’s servant was able to give him a word that would assure his future. He was told that the Lord would rescue him from those he feared so much and that he would be kept safe. Those who had disregarded the Lord, the king, officials and people were to pay an awful price for their sin but God’s own servants and believers would be graciously spared and looked after. When He makes a promise He knows how to bring it to total realisation.

In these perilous and tumultuous days in which the Christian Church is passing through, it is assuring to know and note that the Lord is well able to give His word of preservation thus relieving of undue anxiety and fear. Though threatened on every quarter with all kinds of terror, He speaks the word of peace and assures that He will look after His peoples’ interests. Do not allow what is occurring in the world to reduce you to a state of panic and distress because He will be your safeguard and bring through every ordeal secure and truly blessed.

Whatever has happened to you in your past has been permitted to train and educate in the knowledge of Himself and for the outworking His great plan for your life. It may appear like a jig-saw at times, but He is putting piece to piece together and when the final piece is slotted in, He and you will be delighted with the outcome. Even those times and situations that did not appear to make sense or profit will turn out to be a vital part of the programme. Your role is to quietly trust His love, wisdom and power because He will not fail to be with you to bring all things to perfection. When all is concluded you will be immensely happy at what He has truly brought to pass. The end of the story could not be better!

A WISE SAYING

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” – Isaiah 40:31

True faith and courage are like a kite – an opposing wind raises it higher. The LORD gives that power and energy that enables one to soar, to run and to walk. Whatever is on the agenda, He is there to energize.

“And he shall become like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper” – Psalm 1; 3.

The guarantee is that will know and enjoy His abounding presence and blessing in your life and doings. There will be nothing withheld that is to your good and advantage. You will be greatly loved and esteem by Him and it will become apparent in the bumper blessings that will abound in your lifetime.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

THE TRAUMA OF FEAR – Jeremiah 38: 14

“Fear has torments so it is stated in Word of God and this was apparent in the life of king, Zedekiah.  No one would imagine that a monarch who had the authority as king should be terrified of his officials under him, but it was so with this man. He went to the prophet to make secret inquiry as to how things were going to turn out in relation to the enemy on their doorstep. He was afraid to go openly although he had the right to do so. He felt threatened by his subordinates and allowed them to reduce him to a state of impotence through fear.

It would seem that this individual is in trauma because of people close at hand and the fact of future captivity. God’s servant gave him the answer of the Lord to take a positive step and submit to the enemy and all would come right. He refused to go that route and as a consequence had to let fear maintain its rule. There was no release from the anxiety that was eating at his mind and heart but his experience was one of constant dread. If he had submitted to the Lord and His word he would have entered into a state of spiritual peace but this was not to be.

Fear is an ever-present spiritual factor that seeks to traumatise the mind and heart and create untold terror and unease. The society in which we reside appears to be a terrorised one as people are threatened with all kind of evil things. It is essential that Christian believers live in touch with the Lord and His Word. Where He lives and rules this evil is effectively dealt. His perfect love and inspired word have the capacity of casting out and eliminating all fear. You can be and live at peace because He, Jehovah Shalom – the God of peace is with you always.
