Bible Passage(s): 1 Samuel 25: 28 - 31
Memory Verse: “Even though someone is pursuing you to take your life, the life of my lord will be bound securely in the bundle of the living by the Lord your God, but the lives of your enemies he will hurl away as from the pocket of a sling’’ 1 Samuel 25: 29
The Lord has brought us gloriously to the final month of year 2018. Looking back over the year, you will agree with me that it has only been the Lord that has seen us thus far. What with the various happenings in our nation and the world? Money has been scarce, insecurity of life and property, natural and man-caused disasters and so on and so forth. Despite all these, the Lord our God was faithful unto us. He stood by us like the Rock of Gibraltar, protected and shielded us. He bounded us securely in the ‘bundle of the living’ and all those who pursued us; wanting to take our lives and those of our children and loved ones, He hurled away as from the pocket of a sling.
He is not done with us yet, because as the Bible says, ‘He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ’ (Philippians 1:6). The Lord will take you into the New Year gloriously and with triumph. He will crown the year with gladness for you in Jesus mighty name. All you have to do is rejoice and stay connected to Him, never wavering and be undaunted.
As we celebrate the birth and life of our Lord Jesus Christ this season, let us remember the essence of His coming into our world and what He did for us and all humanity. In so doing, let us display a heart of gratitude in all we do throughout this season of yuletide, as a display of our love for Him. He will see us through to the end and usher us gloriously into the coming year 2019.
I sense in my spirit that the Lord wants to crown this year for us with a great harvest. So get ready for the rain of abundance. This is also the season for a total turn around for your nation. Every area where the enemies have been pillaging your land, He will restore a thousand fold in Jesus mighty name. He will redeem the years and cause rejoicing on your streets once again in Jesus mighty name.
Rejoice in His goodness and tender mercy.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
The Lord bless and keep you. May He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace, now and forevermore. Amen.
All we should do this season is to praise and celebrate our God who has done great and mighty things for us this year. Our prayer this month should therefore be effusive with songs of praise and thanksgiving. Let the praises of our God ooze out of from the depth of your soul. When we do this, He will do for us more than we ever hope for. Therefore put on your dancing shoes and rejoice in the Lord your God.
The Lord will bind your life securely in the bundle of the living and make you see the end of the year gloriously.
