THE MESSAGE:

Yesterday, you were admonished to learn from the mistake of King Asa, who sought a physician for healing instead of telling the Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent God his problem and getting his healing from Him. As a New Testament believer, you were enjoined to tell Jesus, our High Priest, your perils or dangers and your questions that beg for answers. Let us look at other things you should present to the Lord to handle for you.


Tell the Lord your difficulties. The Bible encourages you to cast all your cares, burden and worries upon the Lord, for He cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). In Mark 6:35-36, Jesus had taught a large crowd of people for a long time and they were now hungry. His disciples saw that the people had nothing to eat and that it would be difficult for them to get food where they were. They told Jesus about the difficulty and advised Him to send the people away to go and look for bread to buy and eat. As far as the disciples were concerned, it was practically impossible to feed 5000 or more people, but because they took the matter to Jesus, He multiplied the five loaves of bread and two pieces of fish that they had, fed the people and they had leftover. In the same way, I decree that, henceforth, every difficulty you present to the Lord will become a testimony, in the name of Jesus. 


Note that in the last example, the difficulty presented to Jesus by the disciples was out of their concern and care for the large crowd who were hungry. It means that you can present other people's difficulties to the Lord for intervention. Besides, you can also tell the Lord about your personal need. Jesus is the best Person to share your needs, pains and concerns with. He is a friend like no other. In Mark 10:51, Jesus asked a blind man, "What do you want me to do for you?" He answered, "Lord, that I might receive my sight." Immediately, Jesus restored his sight.


Beloved, isn't it heart-warming that you can tell Jesus all your difficulties, challenges, needs and concerns? Isn't it a great privilege to know that His eyes are always upon you and that His ears are ever open to your cry? He does not just listen to you; He solves your problems and gives you everlasting joy!


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Focus on God, not your problem. Listen to God, not your insecurities. Rely on God, not your own strength.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

I PROPHESY THAT IN ALL SITUATIONS, GOD'S GRACE WILL ALWAYS BE AVAILABLE AND SUFFICIENT FOR YOU, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
