20 So I answered them, and said to them, “The God of heaven Himself will prosper us; therefore we His servants will arise and build, but you have no heritage or right or memorial in Jerusalem.”
Today’s Inspiration: God has a greater destiny for us but we do not know the thoughts of the Lord nor understand His plan. Micah 4:12. So many suddenlies have caught us by surprise but God is not surprised. It is the rebellion that brings us to disaster. God sees everything and knows the time and season you will go through but you cannot fathom. Ecclesiastes 3:1. We are created from dust stamped with the image of God. God made us from the leftovers of the soil. This made us frail but can be made strong only by the Holy spirit. Philippians 4:13.
When we refuse to listen, a day will come when there will be famine for words and you will have no counsel causing you to stagger from here and there looking for them. Amos 8:11-12.
The mistakes you make in life are lessons for you not only to learn but to change your perspective of looking at things. The courage to pursue the goal despite adversities will empower you to move to next level.
Relationships may be vulnerable but they are important as it enables you to accomplish divine connections. Relationships are made to complement one another not to compete with each other as to who is better. Looking at the strengths and weaknesses of people, you see that they are divinely placed to be a blessing to each other.
What you are suffering is only a temporary setback and a test as to how you will react. Your success to overcome depends on how well you know His heart. He disciplines but He heals and restores. He disciplines for our good that we may share in His holiness. Discipline is painful but at the end of it, you reap a harvest of righteousness and peace in this training. Hebrews 12:10-11. See to it that you listen to His instruction.
Esau looks for temporal things and lost his inheritance. Had he the discernment, and patience, he would not have lost the inheritance. He was entitled to it but he lost out to Jacob, who from his mother’s womb, desires the first born inheritance because he placed a great value to it as it entitles him to be priest of the house to rule and reign. He looks to eternal values. Esau took grace for granted. He never knew that the words he promised Jacob will come to fulfilment. When he realised that he had lost the inheritance, he pleaded for reinstatement but was rejected. He could not reverse what he said. He condemned the inheritance when he replaced his temporal hunger with the inheritance, thinking that the vow will not take effect. He pleaded with tears for reinstatement of the inheritance but to no avail. Hebrews 12:17.
How important is our words! Let us not be ignorant of satanic devices who are all out to deprive us of our blessing of health and riches. We serve a loving God whose unconditional love restores every blessing we need after the pruning process is complete, where our faith comes to maturity. It’s faith in the Living God with our whole heart that can direct us to another level of success. James 1:12. God be praised.
