Today's Inspiration: Jesus is our King and our God. He will command victories for us. Through Him we will trample down our enemies and through His Name, we will crush those who try to rise up against us. Psalm 44:4-5. In times of deepest trial, men's efforts are futile. We just need to be broken before the Lord for Him to turn us around and deliver us from a distress we have never experienced before.
In times like this, let us open our hearts to Him and allow His Spirit to overwhelm us with His grace. Until we are totally broken before Him, He cannot repair us. Till we are quieten inside out, He cannot deliver us. Neither can He reveal the truth to guide us out of the tunnel.
Many a time in crisis we are blinded, thinking God cannot deliver us. Even when Jesus went to His hometown to do miracles and teach in the synagogue, they wonder at His wisdom yet did not believe He was the Messiah because He and His family were too familiar to them. Matthew 13:53-58. So, He did not do much miracles there. We tend to look at people's past rather than their defining moment of their calling where they have already come out of the burning bush fully charged by the Holy Spirit ready for mighty works in ministry. So do not look at people based on what you know but based on what God has revealed to you. Always think well of others and let their good characteristics complement yours in partnership for a powerful ministry. God be praised.
Prayer: Let age not be a barrier to Your will for intergenerational worship and may all work together for a common good. Help me to discern those You have sent to join us in the building of Your kingdom that God be glorified through His Son Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
