My people shall never be ashamed
Joel 2:26 - And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the LORD your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed. And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
Our God is our provider and protector and He surely satisfies all our needs and protects us from all calamities. As we keep growing from one spiritual stage to a higher level the level our protection and provisions also increase.
Let me testify a small incident that just happened. Just a day before my way back from Dubai to Mumbai I was given a vision where the Lord showed me my engineers were having problem solving an internet firewall issue. The issue and the screens were running before my eyes.
So I was prepared on my return for the incident. Incidentally on the next day of my return I had a client who's firewall was to be reconfigured. I send my engineers to do the job but kept myself free at the back-end just in case I get a call. I even alerted my partner about this. But it so happened, my engineers solved it without any help from me. This did surprise me but did not shake my faith.
Immediately the next day another client also called for reconfiguring him firewall. The job was supposed to be small so I kept my appointments as usual and sent my engineer to do the job as usual. At the last minute I came to know my engineer was struggling to solve this and had spent over three hours on it. I immediately canceled my meeting and tried solving it from remote with no effect. The next day I visited the client and solved the problem. The interesting part was although it was the first time I was personally working on this brand of firewall, I was very comfortable since the screens were like I had already seen them. The problem and screen were exactly like I was shown!
When the scriptures say the Lord will not let your feet even dash against a stone, it literately means it. For this we need to know the Lord, abide by His Word and take shelter under His wings.
But those who call themselves shepherds or men / women of God, but otherwise live a life against the Word will surely be ashamed.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are my Father and God. You provide and protect me. You will never let me, your loved one ever be ashamed or lacking. You have proved yourself time and again since ancient. I trust in You. I ask You to forgive me when I fall or disappoint You, but do not turn your face away from me. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
