I welcome y’all to this New Month. We thank You Lord for protecting us from January to this day. Truly, it is the Lord’s doing and it is wonderful to see. In the New Year Message, I quoted a passage from the scripture which I want us to take some time to meditate on it;
“Day to day the Lord takes care of the innocent and they will receive an inheritance that last forever. They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough” (Psalm 37:18, 19, NLT)
Day to day the Lord takes care of you and you have received an inheritance that last forever. You will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine you will have more than enough. Hallelujah! God’s word can be trusted. The keywords you should take note of are Hard times and famine.
God never promised that there will be no hard times or famine in your journey. However, He has promised that in those hard times or famine (credit crunch, economic downturn, recession etc), you will not be disgraced and you will have more than enough because His grace is sufficient for you. This is the promise of your Father in Heaven.
The One who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it! (1 Thess 5:24, MSG)
As we begin this month, be encouraged with these words that
- God is taking care of you
The Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. (Psalm 121:5-8, NLT)
And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. (Matthew 6:30, NLT)
- He has already made provision for everything your needs
The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. He lets me rest in green meadows; he leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my strength. He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to his name. Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me. You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever. (Psalm 23, NLT)
HAPPY NEW MONTH!
