Proverbs 31 : 8 – 9
” Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless and see that they get justice. “
We often speak about faith and our calling in Jesus Christ but are we really adhering to it or are we being over shadowed.
God’s word teaches us that we perish for our lack of knowledge ( Hosea 4 : 6 ) and if we continue lacking the correct information, our life is never going to make sense or have purpose. We have so easily become a nation caught up on our own agenda and at every opportunity we walk away from the struggle of those around us.
We listen to the pain and sadness of family members and immediately align it to our struggle but have we forgotten reality, have we forgotten that we have Jesus Christ to rescue us. The idea of us first being blessed was to be a blessing in return and many of us line this primarily to finance but what about our talents, resources and more importantly our time.
How can we ever expect a person longing for the next meal to stand up and face life unless we be their voice – people let us remember that we do all of this because of Jesus Christ. It may be one to declare our faith but the truth be told people want to see our faith in deed, our faith in the goodness of Christ. It is now the time to raise the platform and standards of life.
Let our lives, our love, grace and compassion be a refuge for those who may be dying on the inside. We serve a God of forgiveness, a God of new beginnings, so why should we hold guilt and condemnation unto others close at heart. Let us release all of that in exchange for the love and redemption of Jesus Christ our fountain of everlasting hope and strength.
Heavenly Father we honour you with our lives. We come before you with thanks and praise for the gift of salvation. You have ransomed us and have given us hope to live again – Lord thank you for our identity, for the gift of community and fellowship in your name. Despite what life may seem like in the natural, we rest upon your word that you are a faithful God who knows no end you love, mercy and favour. By faith we believe you are working on our behalf to bring about the right breakthroughs, the right people and the right blessings into our lives – we welcome you Lord Jesus, come and be the light to all. We give you all glory, praise and honour Father God, in the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.
JESUS LOVES YOU
