Bible Reading: Job 14:1-2, 7-9

1….”Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble.
2….He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not….
7….For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease.
8….Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground;
9….Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant.”

Message:

🔥Whatever the scent of water is to trees after being cut down, is what God’s word is to man, if he trusts in it. The word of God is the hope of man to sprout out of unsurmountable distresses. Extreme sorrow, suffering and pain, which characterize distress, are not the natural habitats of man. Man, as God’s image, ought to be a help supplier, instead of being in need of help. If any man has climbed out of the pit of disobedience into which Adam and Eve plunged humanity, such a one becomes free from natural distresses.

🔥🔥The book of Job 14, lays it bare that until man is born of God, he has no peace while still a product of a woman. According to Job 14:1, whoever remains born of a woman, is a bag of troubles. Whatever deed of the woman in Gen 3:6, must be avoided by humans, no matter who is pressurising us to do it. We mustn’t go against God’s Word. When the prophet from Judah in 1 Kgs 13 went against God’s Word, he paid with his life. Your cultural heritage that is not Christian, cannot replace God’s Word. Note that the Christian God created your people that formed those cultures.

🔥🔥🔥The LORD is good, a strong hold, and he knows them that trust in him, in the day of trouble; according to Nahum 1:7. Those are the three qualities of our God, when man is in distress. No wonder he planted a garden for Adam before he got married…Gen 2:8. He makes a way of escape from distresses for man today (1 Cor 10:13), before man gets into them. Because God is good, when He sees that we trust in Him, He will send forth His goodness to us in our distresses and have us pulled out. Thereafter, He stands as our stronghold against subsequent distresses. If we repent as David did in 2 Sam 24:10 when he went against God’s Word and numbered Israel in 1 Chro 21:1-4, God will also stop our destroyers from accessing us…1 Chro 21:15. Hence you are defeating your distresses today.
