Expect a Greater Tomorrow
God in his infinite mercy has spared your life to see the dawn of a new day. To him is all the glory. Perhaps you had painful memories last day: you were in and out of hospitals, you lost your job or couldn’t get one, you had financial or family crises, or things didn’t just go the way you expected. Cheer up, there’s good news for you! The One who owns tomorrow is by your side; He’ll grant you a better future (Jeremiah 29:11). Just let him hold your hand and lead you on. Stay positive and trust Him. No matter the situation you are in right now, don’t lose hope because He promises you a new life today,
“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19). Today will be a better year than yesterday.
Surely, God has a better plan for you this year. Those bitter, unpleasant experiences you had yesterday are now a thing of the past. Peruse the Scriptures and you’ll see a catalogue of people who had torrid experiences in the past, but God transformed their situations and life for the better later on. Job lost everything – all his seven children, property, wealth, health, friends, neigbours and even acquaintances who deserted him in times of his ordeal – but God blessed him with double of what he had lost later. The Bible says, “The Lord turned the captivity of job ---- also the Lord gave job twice as much as he had before” (Job 42:10). Joseph went from slavery to incarceration in a dungeon; all orchestrated by his detractors, but God elevated him to the palace. Hannah was barren for years, but God blessed her with Samuel who became the fist and great prophet of Israel. What about the woman with the issue of blood for twelve years who Jesus healed; the Shunammite woman whose son was raised from the dead, and the woman who would have been stoned to death for adultery, but the Lord forgive her sin and let her live? The list is endless!
God is about to add you to that list. All you have to do is what those heroes of faith did. Job refused to let go of God even when his wife counseled him otherwise and his intimate friends so-called treated him with scorn. Joseph was faithful to God even in the midst of his troubles. Hannah persisted in prayer of faith. The woman with the issue of blood believed Jesus would heal her and she touched Him by faith, though his illness defied medical solution. The Shunammite woman confessed all was well even when his son was declared dead, and the boy rose from death.
My dear friends let go of your past memories and expect a greater tomorrow. Be faithful to God and believe in the supernatural, and He will bless your latter end more than your beginning. If you are a sinner, do what Jesus told the woman caught in adultery to do “Go, and sin no more” (John 8:11). That means, repent of all your sins and accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour and Lord, and you will be in for miracles and blessings today. God bless.
