There is a friend that stays forever

Friends may come and go enemies may accumulate, but there is a friend that stays forever – Jesus Christ *You can’t have the spirit leading you unless you are going somewhere *There must be a journey where you are removed from one place and established in another place* Tell the devil – Give it back devil.

I will make them and the places all around My hill a blessing; and I will cause showers to come down in their season; there shall be showers of blessing.

Then the trees of the field shall yield their fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase. They shall be safe in their land; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke and delivered them from the hand of those who enslaved them.

And they shall no longer be a prey for the nations, nor shall beasts of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and no one shall make them afraid.

I will raise up for them a garden of renown, and they shall no longer be consumed with hunger in the land, nor bear the shame of the Gentiles anymore.

Thus they shall know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, and they, the house of Israel, are My people,” says the Lord God.’

“You are My flock, the flock of My pasture; you are men, and I am your God,” says the Lord God.

Ezekiel 34:26-31.
We serve a God who is our protector, provider and restorer. The above scripture portion tells us that God will send showers of blessings on His people, they shall no longer bear the shame of Gentiles anymore, and that they will come to know that God is with them and that He will be their God and they shall be His flock.

The precious thing on the face of this earth is to know, love, follow and serve God. Many of us when we walk with God face problems, challenges and persecutions. The most and frequently asked question of unbelievers is when you are believing in God then why are you going through all these problems? We don’t know God, so we are going through problems, but you know God, then why are you going through all these problems? What is the difference between us and you? . The answer to all these questions is very very simple, problems are universal they come to believers as well as unbelievers. Believers have hope in their problems whereas for unbelievers there is no hope that they will come out of their problems. Believers thrive in their problems, whereas unbelievers will strive in their problems. What consumes a unbeliever will never consume a believer.

There was a famine in the land in which Isaac lived. God appeared to Isaac and asked him not to go to Egypt and live in the land of which He shall tell him. God promised Isaac, that He will give all these lands and fulfill the promise given to his father Abraham. Isaac obeyed God, stayed and sowed in the famine land and in the same year, he reaped a hundred fold harvest. Isaac became exceedingly prosperous, he had a large number of flocks and herds and he had a great number of servants. The king of phillistines Abimelech said to Isaac ” Go away from us, for you are mightier than we “. When God blesses His children, the world will stand in awe of our God with their mouths wide open. When God is with us, what doesn’t work for others will surely work for us, same famine land for a believing Isaac and unbelievers, it worked for him and not for others, he became prosperous and others became jealous of him.

The blessing was not in the land, but the blessing was upon Isaac, that is why whatever he touched and worked for prospered. The blessing is on us, the blessings is not around us, but it is on the inside of us, we have to draw it out from within us and manifest it around us. What is on the inside will reflect on the outside, the inside should influence the outside. Corona might have brought businesses down, everyones businesses might be running in losses, but your business profits will shoot up. Everyone might be losing their jobs, but the Director of your company will send his car to pick you up daily to work for his company. Everyone might receive half pay, but you will receive a promotion and a hike in the paycheck. Christ in us the hope of glory, when Jesus is with us, then there will be abundance in and around us.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

Ephesians 1:3
For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.

Romans 5:17
Heavenly Father thank You for the word, thank You for every blessing that You shower on us everyday of our lives. Lord give us the grace to always remain Your flock and receive Your showers of blessings. Lord we uphold every person who is waiting for showers of blessings in their lives, perform a miracle in their lives and let their lives bring name, praise, honor and glory to Your name in Jesus name we ask and pray.
Amen and Amen.
God loves you
