Topic: HOW TO BE VICTORIOUS THIS YEAR
Bible Reading: Ecclesiastes 9:10-11
📖10….”Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
📖11….”I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.”
🔥At each point in time, the Lord expects us to be engaged in doing something worthwhile. When the times are unfavourable… Ecclesiastes 11:4-6, and when the times are favourable…1 Chro 20:1, God wants us to turn every situation around for our good. So, every time we encounter, should be used to serve our needs favourably. Since we are like God, as we live in Christ by faith, by baptism and by communion, we have to also make every time, everyday and every season ours.
🔥🔥Our lead text from Ecclesiastes 9:10-11, says our hands must find something to do, so that we won’t lose our TIME AND CHANCE. That means we must make every time of our pilgrimage on earth fruitful by being unwavering in our faith. In John 2:4-7, Jesus was forced to make the time favourable for the couple when the servants set 6 waterpots of faith before him. Observe that in John 2:4, Jesus told Mary that his hour to perform miracles had not come, but to Mary, the hour of the celebrants to receive from God through Jesus, had come. So, it doesn’t matter whether God’s time to bless us is now or not, so long it is our time of needs, God will adjust his time to suit ours.
🔥🔥🔥Therefore, by our reasonable services to God, like the one performed by the widow of Zarephath to prophet Elijah in 1 Kgs 17:10-16, we can turn the times of famine to times and seasons of plenty. Reasonable services to God through his servants, are the most potent weapons used to convert bad times to good times…Matt 10:41-42. Serving God with our substances, will change evil times to good times this year. Obededom did it in 2 Sam 6:10-12, and he was blessed by God in three months. Child of God, to obtain God’s mercy to be prospered, and better your time this year, sow your tithes and offerings…Malachi 3:10 into God from January.
🙏O Lord, by your omnipotence, turn every unfavourable situation and time, to my good, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly Father, I convert every season of harvest and promotion to mine, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Dear Lord, turn my obedience in rendering services to you in the Church, to an everlasting pool of prosperity and blessedness, in Jesus’ name.
