Verse Of The Day : You have turned for me my mourning into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness. Psalms 30:11
Thought of The Day : When God appears, He turns mourning to dancing, and sadness to gladness.
LISTEN : What God cannot do does not exist, and whatever must exist must have a solution. God is the cure and solutions for everything. Beloved, there is nothing to worry about, for God is everything to those who believe in Him. He is our righteousness, our peace, our favour, our healer, our provider, our protector, our mercy, our comforter, our defender and deliverer. The list goes on and on. God knows how to influence things in favour of those who love Him. No matter how ugly the situation seems, He brings out beauty out of it. The Bible says,
“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.“
Beloved, listen to what the beginning statement of the Bible verse above says, “And we know…” This means that, in order to receive from God, we must know and believe what He says about our situations. We must be confident of His power and faithfulness. If you are confident of God’s power and faithfulness, He will be delighted to extend same to you. My dear, Just learn to be strong, courageous and resilient in all situations. However, it is impossible to be truly strong if you don’t know God. Only those who know God can truly enjoy His faithfulness. Knowing God helps us to overcome situations and conquer territories. The Bible says,
“…but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.“
Beloved, do you know God? Are you strong in your faith in Him? Then, wait for Him. He will surely come to your rescue. Like the Psalmist, you will declare, “You have turned for me my mourning into dancing: you have put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness.” (Psalms 30:11). This season, God will smile on you, in Jesus ’ name, amen. Henceforth, ask God to resurrect your faith and bury your fears. Be wise!
