Revelation Of God

TEXT: “Then you will know that I, the LORD your God, dwell in Zion, my holy hill. Jerusalem will be holy; never again will foreigners invade her.” Joel 3: 17

There was a time when I had it all going smoothly. The fact that my hard work was greatly satisfying my needs, and the cash was flowing, made me feel super human. My job took centre stage of my life but I felt unfulfilled, empty, worn out and dejected.

God deals with us in judgment. When things begin to go wrong with us, it is His way of saying to us, “Look, you are not your own boss.” We are not ours. We were bought with a price and God waits for us to realize that He is God, not us.

Our futures are in God’s hands, and, bless God that they are not in the hands of men too. If they were, we would make a mess of it. Neither are they in the hands of the Devil. If they were, we would be on our way to destruction.

Our future is in the hands of the One who is preparing something, which the eye has never seen nor the ear ever heard. (1 Cor. 2:9)

Learn and Apply: Through the difficulties of the present day, Look and listen, Stop and wait, Pay attention to what God is saying, that we make ourselves ready for the great things to come.

Pray: Dear Lord, we ask for wisdom to listen to You and to turn back from going our own way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
