They that trust in the Lord shall be as Mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth forever. A pleasant morning to my brothers and sisters in the Lord, thanking Almighty God for another opportunity on this earthly plane, whereby we can exalt His wondrous name. Father as we glorify You today, we pray and ask for Your guidance, blessings and protection throughout this day and forever in Jesus Almighty name. Amen!
Peace and blessings to my elders, all ministers, members, friends and families of The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc 2012, may the peace of Almighty God abide and comfort us. Family in Christ, today I come with no strange language, I’m not an excellent speaker nor do I have a hidden agenda. I simply want to encourage Israel (myself included), to bloom where you are planted. Wow! A peculiar but interesting statement. As the month of December is fast closing, we tend to reminisce on this year 2015, and many a time we find ourselves saying or thinking, we should have done this or should have done that. Looking back, there were lots of things which may not have worked out as we had wanted to, nor in our favour, but Almighty God is too wise to make a mistake. Amen!
Believers, if man could of have his own way, we would have destroyed ourselves already. I’m sure throughout the last eleven months, someone close to us or a family member have betrayed us or a co-worker was promoted instead of us. Beloved, let’s give God all our disappointments and be determined to be the best that we can be for Him. As a human being this is hard for us to accept because we love Moses law, but we’re no longer under Moses law. As children of The Most High God, the correct thing to do is let go and let God have His way. Amen! As Proverbs 3 verses 5 and 6 stated, “trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths”. Hallelujah!
Getting back to the subject at caption, could one visualize being little Joseph, sold by his brothers, betrayed by Potiphar’s wife and thrown in prison by Potiphar. However, the Lord was always with Joseph and shew mercy and gave him (Joseph) favour in everyone’s sight. Amen! Beloved, Joseph never complained about all the afflictions he endured, but learn to exist wherever he was placed and performed to the best of his ability in Jesus Almighty name. Amen! If we take some time to read from Genesis 37 to 46, we’ll see that there was a reason for all the obstacles placed in Joseph’s life. For he (Joseph) was sent by Almighty into Egypt for the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream, whereby making preparations for the great famine and the preservation of Jacob and his household. Amen! Thank you Jesus! So many a time when something happen in our lives, we take it as experience, work with it and move on in Jesus Almighty name.
As I conclude this message on bloom where you are planted, I pray that we learn to meekly wait and murmur not. For with Almighty God all things are possible, we are mortals yes, but we have to try to function in whatever capacity or whenever the situation or circumstances arise, do it in Jesus Almighty name and leave it unto Almighty God. Amen! Heavenly Father, we thank You for another blessing today. We thank You for The Holy Spirit – which directs, gives us a second chance and opportunities for healing. Master, please plant our elders by Your rivers of waters, so they can stay fresh, green and blossom for Your works sake. King of Israel, remember Your children this Yuletide Season. Some of them are experiencing famine, please provide for them O Great Jehovah Jireh. Lord God, teach us to be kindly affectionate to one another, watch and pray and bloom where we are planted, until Thy Kingdom come. All these and more blessings we pray and ask for in Jesus Almighty name. Amen!
