Why your Situation must Change (II)
“The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.” (Proverbs 4:18).
This is the key Bible verse for the “Come and See” devotional today.
The first part of this series of devotionals provided a key message: thus, it is only a matter of time before your situation will change for good. There is no everlasting problem in this world, but only one Everlasting God who reigns from everlasting to everlasting. The Bible states: “the Lord shall reign forever, Your God, O Zion, to all generations” (Psalm 146:10, New King James Version).
As suggested by today’s key Bible verse, another mark of the righteous is their repetitively changing status. The righteous are likened to the pattern of the hours of daylight. Thus, the brightness of the early morning light is not the same as its glare at midday. No wonder the Bible says: “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5, New King James Version).
The fact that the miracles of God can be recreated is another reason why a person’s miserable situation must surely change for the better. The Bible records many instances where the faithfulness of God has intervened to deal with the misfortunes of His people. We still draw strength and inspiration from the happy endings to the stories of Patriarchs such as Abraham who was childless when he was introduced at the age of 75 in the Bible. Later, he became the Father of many Nations.
We already know that the Almighty God does not change. There has never been a shortage of His power, strength, love, mercy and compassion. All that is required is for you to connect to Him by faith. Regarding God’s fairness and liberality when dealing with mankind, the Bible records the faithful testimony of Apostle Peter as follows: “then Peter opened his mouth and said: ‘In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted by Him.’’’ (Acts 10:34-35, New King James Version).
Abraham was not the only one mentioned in the Bible for whom God solved the misfortunes of childlessness. He did the same for Hannah, who became the mother of Prophet Samuel and had more children later. We also remember how He intervened in the case of Manoah the mother of Samson, Elizabeth the mother of John the Baptist and many other similar cases of childlessness, not only in the Bible but also around us. What God did in Old Testament was repeated in the New Testament and because He lives forever, He is here with us by Hi Spirit to perform the same miracle.
The Ancient of Days divided waters to make a way for His purpose and people. He parted the waters from the firmament at creation. He did the same with the Red Sea and River Jordan for the safe passage of the Israelites and later for Prophet Elisha. All the past miracles of God can be re-enacted hence your unhappy situation must soon change. Since all ailments require and will respond to the same treatment, similarly any negative situation will respond to unchanging God of Miracles. Hebrews 13 v 8 states ““Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever” , New King James Version). Hence, it is your turn for a turnaround of misfortunes and sorrow.
Let us pray: “Father, by your power bring a permanent end to all sorrow in my life” in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.
