17 “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty.
18 For He bruises, but He binds up; He wounds, but His hands make whole.
19 He shall deliver you in six troubles, yes, in seven no evil shall touch you.
Today’s inspiration: God’s chastening time is pruning time and the Bible says that we should not despise such times. He bruises but He binds. He wounds but his hands made whole. He delivers you in six troubles and in seven no evil shall touch you. He redeems you even during famine times and shall laugh at destruction and famine. Nothing shall make you afraid and you will be at peace. Nothing will be stolen from you. Meditate Job 5:17-24.
You will not leave this earth prematurely but will fulfil what He purposed you to do. Verses 26-27. God be praised for such promise! This is the promise of the Passover we are celebrating today and we hope to see you this afternoon to hear what the spirit of the Lord has to say to you.
You may also be one of the people who have recovered from a long illness but you fear the sickness will recur. This is the last thing you should do.

Discover for yourself new avenues that take your mind away from your past. Get connected to God who will direct your next step and take you from unnecessary stress that is clouding your mind. Enjoy working on programmes that make a difference. Get out of your past and come to the present in expectation of the rosy future. Jeremiah 29.11. Your flowers are already blooming in the garden and your fruits have bloomed as you enter the May season of fruitfulness.
It is important to respect people to try to understand them. You never know what is going on in their lives. Its easy to judge. If life is challenging, do the reverse. Be kind to others and yourself, give yourself and others a pat for a good job done and find small things to be grateful for even in dark times. Capturing moments of edification and exhortation that get you out of stress and bring you into the reality of His promises. Watching your mouth and guarding your tongue keep your soul from troubles. Proverbs 21:23. Believe that God can help get you out of the things you feel impossible to solve and what had kept you guessing or pondering what is happening to your life. Come to Jesus and believe He is able to do the impossible. Matthew 9:28-29 Let Him open your eyes to see the impossible. Verse 30.
