Focus: Hebrews 3:14 - KJV
14. For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence stedfast unto the end;
We glorify God today for the life of a true partner and great daughter of Zion. We pray God to preserve her the more till the very end in Jesus’ name. Happy Birthday PW! God bless you real good. Many more Happy Returns in good health and wealth you have in Jesus’ name. Celebrate, dear love.
The beginning of a race does not determine the winner of the race. Some may take off gloriously but end up a casualty midway. In the journey of life particularly in the way of the Christian pilgrim, it is only those who make it to the very end that will be true partakers of Christ. Mark was found wanton by Paul in their missionary journey, perhaps because he was not so diligent at the time. But when the work enlarged and those who were thought to be upright and good like Demas, departed from the faith, he realized the profitability of Mark who perhaps had shored up his faith. When a person has been in the light and tasted of the beauty thereat, it becomes absurd if the same is found returning into darkness. It is truly an anomaly for anyone to prefer darkness to the light but that is a common phenomenon amongst humans today. If anyone lays his hands upon the plow and looks back, he is not fit for the kingdom. That is the position of the scripture. Therefore, it is unprofitable for anyone to start in the kingdom race and exit. The case is worse for him in the end than it was at the beginning.
What is it that is shaking you and wanting you to turn your back on the Lord and His interest? It is a ploy of the enemy to lure you out of the path that leads to success and victory. Hold the forth! The Lord is coming to your aid. He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear. No matter how terrible the situation appears, we do not have a high priest that cannot be touched with our infirmities. He has gone through all of it before and so, He knows how you feel while going through it. He is about to give you your escape today. No matter what you do, please don’t throw in the towel.
SOLUTION: Be prayerful. Your solace is in the Lord and your main link to Him is prayer in the name of Jesus. As you pray, wait for the Lord’s instruction concerning the matter at hand and whatever He asks you to do, please do it to precision.
Father, we commit all your children going through hardship unto your special care today, please arise to ease their burdens now in Jesus’ name. Everyone that is at the verge of cheapening out, please hold their hands to help them in the way in Jesus’ name. Do lift off these heavy yokes and burdens Lord that your name alone may be glorified, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
