Jesus said, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden”. It is true and worthy of acceptance that 2020 has been a very difficult year, we will not forget the numerous events that took place in a while.
We grieve for the souls that were lost, the families that are bereaved, job losses, uncertainties and stormy circumstances. Despite all of these, I dare to say that we now have a new normal, a season where the resilience of the human spirit shines forth, we refuse to be tied down and so we move on in the strength of God.
Pslams 5:12 says “You oh lord will bless the righteous and with favour you will encompass him as with a shield”
God also promised in Psalms 126:1 that when he turned again the captivity of Zion, it was like a dream. We may wonder how we shall recover from the economic downturn, job losses and any other kind of losses but the word for this season is favour.
Psalms 102:13 “You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favour to her; the appointed time has come”
When there was lack and hunger among the followers of Jesus and it looked as if they will perish for lack of bread, a little boy appeared with just a few pieces of food and after divine blessings the little food fed an army of people.
Together and with God’s help, we shall overcome and in due season, our victory shall shine forth.
Remain in grace.
