If God Is for Us, Then Who Will Be Against Us? (Morning)
Isaiah 32:15 Until the Spirit is poured upon us from on high, And the wilderness becomes a fruitful field, And the fruitful field is counted as a forest.
Joseph’s story is always a good example of how a Christian should be. How he, once his father’s beloved son, was sold into slavery and then raised only to be sent to prison because of wrong accusation and his faith and strong moral compass. Even though he can climb his rank and was unofficially the warden’s right-hand man, he still nonetheless, a prisoner. His life was in limbo. But he still faithful to his God and because of this God blessed him and made him a blessing to nations. From prisoner to Egypt vizier, his life was changed in one night.
How many of us, right now feel in a limbo? You barely could make ends meet, yet still struggle with your jobs, relationship, finances, or health. No matter hard you try no visible breakthrough in your life. No life, just like a barren land, desert. Desperation surrounds you. But today’s God gives us Joseph for us to take the example of and study. He always has Joseph’s back and never lets his knee touched the ground. He raised him high, just like dawn after the darkest hour. He proved Himself once to Joseph and in these recent days, He will once again prove His power and might.
Right now, stand up! Rise and shine! Strengthen your arms and legs. Go to the upper room, and seek His counsel. Listen to His whispers. Make sure His will is aligned with yours. If you managed to do that, you’ll see how His mighty hand will send help. He will turn desert into the green forest, barren land into a field, filled with fruit and produces and ready to be reaped.
He could turn WILDERNESS into FRUITFUL FIELD, by SENDING HIS SPIRIT.
1. What is your “desert” in life?
2. Do you believe that He will turn your desert into the forest?
3. Then what will you do to ease His works and turn your life to be fruitful?
“Holy Spirit, we are grateful for Your faithfulness. You never abandon us and always assist us in our endeavors. We believe if You is for us, who will be against us? We want to be fruitful in You and glorify Your name. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
