MONDAY 23RD OCTOBER, 2017 READ – DAY: John 8:1-30; Night: Hab 1-3
THEME: WITH HIM, NO SHAME
TEXT: JOEL 2: 25-27
HYMN: EMHB 525 – Through the love of God our Saviour, All will be well;
Have you ever been in a fix? Have you ever found yourself in a situation where nothing seemed to be working? At such moments, what goes through your mind? Do you sometimes think it is possible for God to disappoint you?
Our reflection today is WITH HIM, NO SHAME. When we have Jesus, we can be sure that we can never be disappointed. You might be experiencing some lack, a failure in business; family issues or even struggling with a bad past and the list appears to go on ad infinitum. But in all these, you must constantly remind yourself that with Him, there is no shame.
Hold onto God’s promises and refuse to give up until you get an answer. Be a persistent and relentless prayer warrior and pray your way to breakthrough! Remember He has promised to restore to you all the years the cankerworm has eaten. He says that you will eat in plenty and get satisfied.
Therefore, Brethren, our duty is to receive what He has prepared for us and this through prayers. Always be conscious of the fact that even in your unpleasant situation, He loves you and will never let you be ashamed. When you have Jesus, there is no shame!
MEMORY VERSE: Joel 2:25 “I will restore to you the years which the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyers and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you.”
PRAYER: Master Jesus, when one is with You, there is no shame whatsoever. I, therefore, crave for the spirit to abide in You ever more. Amen.
