Scripture Reading:- 1 Kings 17:1-16

Topic:- You Will Surely Make It

Text:- 1 Kings 17:12

I ran into a childhood friend recently. We had not seen each other for years, and the festivity brought us together. I saw his little daughter jumping all around him, and I said to him, “Guy, how is your family? Look at your little baby, very lively, you are blessed oo. When I grow up, I will like to be like you.” He laughed loudly, and said, “You be big man na.”
As we were driving to town, I asked about his work and everything, he said he doesn’t have a job at the moment. I was shocked, as I looked and I asked, “So how do you take care of your wife and two children?” He answered, ” It’s God’s grace”. My God!!!

I probed further, “God’s grace? How can you say just God’s grace?” He said, “I’m actually into farming. I cultivate all my farm produce myself. So my family doesn’t lack food to eat.”
I heaved a sigh of relief. “That’s lovely” I said. He further went on, “If God keeps me alive till mid year, I will cultivate more farm produce. I will go into cultivating variety of crops.”
I asked, “How do you mean If God keeps you alive?” He looked at me and said, “I actually have a kidney problem, and that is one of my biggest problems.”

“Jesus”, I screamed. I practically almost lost hold of the car steering. As I got to the area where he would alight, I held his hands and said, “God is the healer, he will heal you, there is nothing impossible with him.” I gave him all the encouragement I could give him and promised to keep in touch.
So many people look great outwardly, but if they don’t tell you what they are going through, you may never know that they have mountain of problems. This is why when some people can’t help you, don’t blame them. They have their own challenges.
We all wear good clothes, but you can never know who is battling with a life threatening problem, except the person opens up to you.

Most people hide their problems behind good clothes, behind their smiles, behind their make ups, and you think everything is all rosy with them. When I was admiring my friend’s achievements, I sense that in his mind he was saying, “I wish you knew what’s up.”
Problems have classes and grades. Some people’s problem might be how to get the next meal, some others might be how to buy the latest car in town, while some others may be how to raise money for a kidney transplant or a surgery.
Everyone has a problem whether great or small. Don’t be deceived by the clothes, cars, houses someone might have, that person may be battling with one problem or the other.

Have you also ever had a pensive thought about how your Pastor always stands in Church to preach to you everyday whether he is happy or sad?
I don’t know why I’m saying this, but we look at them as super humans and most times we don’t consider that they are humans just like us. They are always there standing against all odds. Every Sunday to preach. They have problems like you.

The bottom line of this post is that we should never be deceived to think that we are disadvantaged because we see others succeeding. Be thankful for what you have.
That you see someone driving a flashy car doesn’t mean all is well. That you see a couple displaying pictures does not mean they are always living in peace. That you see your friends buying houses is not an indication that all is well.
Be grateful for where you are, as you hope for a better today and tomorrow. By the special grace of God you will surely make it in Jesus name.

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
