THIS IS GOD MESSAGE FOR HIS PEOPLE
Written by: Shirley Rhodes
In today’s lesson, I present to you, “GOD’S MESSAGE FOR HIS PEOPLE!” The journey of life often aligns our purpose in such a way that challenge is very much present. We may experience many levels of emotions and some of those emotions will find our weak point or may enter when the physical body is at its weakest point. Faith is the key that unlocks the mystery of power and light, the source which is always plentiful to meet every need. No matter how bad things may seem, feeling that connection will lift our spirit, as a reminder that we are never along. In times when we may find it difficult to smile or share a sense of humor, feel overwhelmed, abandoned, alone, sick and tired, be reminded that there is a message in God’s word. God’s Message for His People, is simply this: stand firm in faith, trust God to come through no matter how bleak the circumstances may seem. We must be obedient and determined to live life in a state of expectancy. Trust the “Promise”
This is what the Lord says, In His Message for His People: “We learn by example!”
“What fault did your ancestors find in me, that they strayed so far from me?
I had planted you like a choice vine of sound and reliable stock7 I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable.
How then did you turn against me into a corrupt, wild vine? You broke off your yoke and tore off your
bonds; you said, “I will not serve you!” They did not ask, “Where is the Lord who brought us up out of Egypt and led us through the barren wilderness, through a land of deserts and ravines, a land of drought and utter darkness, a land where no one lives?” They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, the stain of your guilt is still before me,” declares the Sovereign Lord.
God’s Message for God’s People was always solid as a rock. He said, “I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised, I know what I’m doing, I have it all planned out–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. When you call me, when you come and pray to me, I’ll listen. When you come looking for me you will find me, when you get serious about finding me and want it more than anything else, I’ll make sure you won’t be disappointed, I’ll turn things around for you” (Jeremiah 29:10-14 MGS).
With assurance such as this why not submit all our cares and struggles to the only one who holds the answers? In order to receive our blessings we must be willing to make the sacrifice and with pure hearts rely on the source, follow the pattern. God watches over us and knows all about our circumstances and needs, when we are faithful we know that he will come through when his timing is right.
Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:
Now this is truly God’s Message for His people. He gives it freely, and asks only that you be obedient to His word. Study to show yourself approved, and then know the truth and the truth will set you free. May God’s grace and mercy be upon you and cover you in all that you do, now and forever, in Jesus name, AMEN!
