His lord said to him, "Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord."

The book of Phillippians 4:6-7 put it succinctly, "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God, and the peace  of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus". NKJV.

Friends, how do you react to issue when things began to fall apart around you? Do you still keep your head afloat and stick to God, believing in your heaart that with God all things are possible - or you grumbling and complaining?  In such time like this, we should more close to God and develop more knowledge about His ways which will help us to be godly and reasonable when under trials and challenges of life.

We should realise this fact, that the purpose of God for His children is not a life of complaints and grumbling.  The psalmist says " I waited patiently for the Lord; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry.  He also brought me up miry clay, And set my feet upon  a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in mouth - praise to our God; many will see it and fear, And will trust in the Lord.

(Psalm40:1-3)  NKJV.

Life is full of challenges.  There will be moments of hunger, and thirst.  As will pass through this wilderness of life on the way to our promised land.  We must be firm and focused, rather than complaining  and grumbling like the Israelites, you should not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer, petition and trust.  Assuredly the Lord will bring to pass the desire of your

heart.   Till next assembly keep tusting the Lord,  Shalom. 

 

Thank you.

Sincerely

Emmanuel.
