My people shall never be ashamed
Joel 2:27 - 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.
Do you think it pleases God to see his own people suffer? No, it does not; for the sake of his people He allows things to take place for a duration but quickly dissolves the problems.
Why do we get problems? It is like asking when there is light and we place an object in its path, why do shadows come?
It is simple; if there is light and one obstructs the light, shadow will surely exist. Our sins and our wrong doings are like obstructions to God's light (blessings). But our God is a merciful and loving God, even when He sees shadows He tries to bounce his light to overcome the shadows. At the same time He also instructs us and helps us to bring down the obstructions forever.
When we dwell in Zion (the fortified city of the Lord, abiding in Him) we will surely not be left ashamed and like Job and King Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4) we will regain our blessings at the end of this desert.
Now you may ask when this desert's end will come. Let me tell you it will be sooner than you can expect.
Being in business, I meet people who keep talking of the financial crisis that is devouring everyone, but at that time inside myself I laugh. For I know that this crisis will end very soon and my God will do it.
Keep the truth and the hope in you, before your eyes. For before you can expect things will change and you will be surely blessed.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, You are merciful and loving God. It surely does not please You to see your people suffer and You will show that You dwell among your people by the blessings which will radiate among them. I open my arms wide open to receive. I make this prayer of faith in Jesus' Name, Amen.
