Are you passing by the times of trouble, depression, trial in your life as you await for the word and vision of the Lord God Almighty being fulfilled for your life, then I have a word of encouragement for you, wait upon the Lord…
Beloved ones of God, today the true Christians who by faith proclaims the REHMA word of God for their life and for other people’s life are been havocked and are been mocked by world and by their friends, families and body of Christ. Today even many born-again Christians are busy mocking and questioning the genuineness of a true Christian’s walk of faith. Nevertheless, you or I do not have to get disheartened for the very rejection shows that the word of God that we have proclaimed is working as a double-edged sword.
My dear friends do not be surprised at the painful test you are suffering as though something unusual were happening to you. Rather be glad that you are sharing Christ’s sufferings, so that you may be full of joy when his glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4)
Imagine the pain and suffering that Joseph and Mary would might have gone through, as they waited upon the Lord’s promise of blessing them with promised child “Jesus” who will save his people from their sins. Joseph and Mary were engaged and before they were married, she found out that she was going to have a baby through Holy Spirit. Joseph who was pledged to marry Mary when came to knew that Mary was going to have baby, he made his human plans to break the engagement privately, for he was thinking from the human perspective and was making his decisions based on his five natural senses and societal customs. He did every thing right and did not wanted to disgrace Mary publicly says the bible. But while he was still in the process of making an decision to break the relationship with Mary considering her un-holy and unacceptable, the angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary to be your wife. For it is by the Holy Spirit that she has conceived.” Joseph in his natural sense and understanding was questioning the genuineness and holiness of Mary, for his knowledge and wisdom were finite as per the human standards. He was trying to fix the puzzle himself rather then seeking God’s face and heed the voice of the Holy Spirit. Beloved one of God, you may also be going through a painful time like Joseph and Mary, you know that God has given you a word and promise, but the carnal minded people and immature believer’s are not understanding you and are not ready to accept the vision you have shared to them, don’t worry wait upon the Lord! For He shall surely fulfill His promise for you as psalmist says, “ You prepare table before me in the presence of my enemies.”
Consider the physical, spiritual, economical and mental status of the woman who had an issue of blood for past twelve years. Bible says that she spent all her resources to be healed but all was in vain! She did all things possible upon the earth but the Lord of her Soul knew that when she was going to be healed and after suffering and waiting for twelve year’s for the Lord’s favored time for her healing, she was miraculously and instantly healed as she touched the hem of the garment of Christ Jesus. Christ said to her that her faith has made her well; Christ honored her confession and her faith, for He knew how far this woman has gone through in search of her healing. Nevertheless, in the desired time and season’s of the Lord He healed the woman, for the Lord always honors His people’s faith, He shall never leave nor forsake-for He is full of compassion and mercy. Are you the one who is in seek of healing, waiting upon the Lord, then don’t be afraid, neither be hasty, for your healing has come in and through Christ Jesus, for He took thirty nine lashes on his body for your and for everyone who believes and call upon his name as Lord and Saviour. It will be only a time gone by when you shall surely testify goodness and faithfulness of our God as you witness His miraculous healing power revealed in your body-for “By His stripes we are healed” says the Bible. Have faith in the Lord for as you wait upon the Lord, He will witness His grace, mercy, love and compassion for your life.
Are you being singled out and feel broken hearted because of the several life threatening incidents and trauma you are going through, loosing all hope- don’t worry for as Christ Jesus made a specific and V.I.P visit for the man who was demon-possessed and used to stay in tombs and hurt himself. Lord has also seen your pain, agony, sorrow, sufferings, and trauma’s. Christ is surely making a VIP visit to your life threatening situations for without His consent not even the sparrows sold out in two penny falls upon the ground, how much more important you are in His eyes. As Christ delivered the demon-possessed men in an instance, your life situation will turn around! Surely, this year is a divine visitation year of the Lord God Almighty for your life, as He visits you, the mess up of your life will be cleared, and as the word promises, “In all things God together works for good for those who love him and are called according to His purposes.” Just wait upon the Lord… for the battle belongs to the Lord our God!
Even Christ Jesus waited upon the Heavenly Father to reign down His righteousness as He went through the awesome time of suffering and pain, while being crucified on the Cross of Calvary, as the Lamb of God, that took away sins of the world. He waited upon the Lord to reveal His Glory as He was been resurrected from death on the third day, and He being ascended to the heaven, fulfilling the great plan of Salvation for the entire human race.
In this present life we may be going to through lot of trials, pains, and sufferings, but as we await for our promised savior to be revealed from the heaven to safely harbor us in our true and eternal home “Heavenly Jerusalem”. Bible says that, “ Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking any thing.”
Wait upon the Lord…For those who wait upon the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Just a little while more and the storm of your life will be cleared off, for,”He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like to noonday sun.”
May the God our Heavenly Father through His Son Christ Jesus anoint you and strengthen you to run and complete the race of faith with all diligence, meekness and humility, whose prize “Eternal Life” is kept safe for us in the heaven.
