FOOD FOR THE SOUL

RHEMA

Alexander Fleming is a Scottish doctor and bacteriologist. His profession as a bacteriologist motivated him to investigate the bacteria that caused dangerous pus that resulted in thousands of soldiers dying from infected wounds. Fleming worked hard because if a cure was not found immediately, there would be more fatalities due to infection. One day he found a kind of fungus appearing on a Petri dish he had left during the holiday season. Instead of throwing it away, he did further research. Finally, he could produce a substance that can kill the bacteria. His preparations to save lives led to Penicillin.

God promised Abraham and all his descendants the land of Canaan as their property. For this great purpose, God allowed Abraham to prepare himself. Abraham immediately moved his tents and then settled near the oak trees in Mamre, near Hebron. Then Abraham built an altar to God there.

In a few days, 2020 will end. There are still many challenges and battles that we must face in 2121. Our rhema today reminds us to prepare because God does not want us to lose, even die in battle in 2121. God wants each of us to win the extraordinary blessings that have been He provided. Without proper preparation, we often fail to see and grasp every opportunity for the blessing that is approaching. Let’s make the best possible preparation. Plan carefully, what kind of glory do we want to achieve with our families throughout the year 2021? Or how many ministries will we build in the coming year? Even though time is very short, it’s not too late for us to prepare for the next level.

When God gives us the assignment to do something, surely He will give us the OPPORTUNITY to PREPARE.
