Memorize: For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9
Devotional Reading: Psalms 75: 1 -7
Some people categorize the problems and challenges of life into good or bad categories, whichever capacity the problems of life may come, Jesus has the answer. In our memorize of today, he became poor so that we through his poverty may be rich. When God’s blessings overflow your container and you are now looking for more containers to contain, that is a good problem. This year, the Lord will give you a good problem in Jesus name. In 2 Kings 6:1-7, that was the type of problem the sons of the prophet came to report to Elisha. Just as there are good problems, we equally have bad problems. Sickness or virus as we currently have COVID-19 is a bad problem, but thank God for the provision He has made for our healing – Isaiah 53:5; 1 Peter 2:24.
Poverty can be a bad problem, it is not necessarily a sign of holiness. You can be the poorest person on earth, yet if you are not born again, you would still go to hell. Some people have a wrong notion about this, they think poverty is a sign of holiness if you are a Christian, let no one deceive you that poverty admits the poor in Heaven, no it doesn’t!, unless you are born again. On the other hand, you can be the richest person on earth, yet if you are born again and live holy, you will get to Heaven and live with God. 2 Cor. 8:9 says Jesus Christ exchanged his riches for your poverty so that you can have His riches. I pray for you today that in this season you shall be a full beneficiary of these blessings in Jesus name, amen.
Bondage is another bad problem. It draws one back whenever you want to move forward. If you can surrender to the Lordship of Jesus today, the yoke of bondage in your life shall be broken and you will be free. Barrenness is another bad problem. This can be in different forms, it could manifest as inability to procreate and have your own children or inability to generate ideas that will cause you to make meaningful progress in life. John 15: says if you can make Jesus your permanent abode, from today, the problem of barrenness will be terminated from your life in Jesus name.
Stagnation is another manifestation of barrenness. Some people have not known progress in many years, as they have remained on fixed income.Their story has been from hand to mouth, they bearly survived and live on the most minimum. In this season of Divine Lifting, God will lift you and make you progressive, you will find yourself soaring higher from today in the name of Jesus . Psalms 75:5-7 says promotion comes from God.
There is a limit to which man can promote you, even your friends, they wouldn’t want you to surpass them. But the Everlasting arms of the most High God cannot be limited, when He promotes you, no man can hinder him.
I don’t know what kind of problem you might be going through currently especially at this time of global pandemic, I like you to know that God is bigger than all your problems and Nothing is impossible for Him to do, He is the only solution to any problem you might be facing today.
Therefore, Put your whole trust in God and He will come through for you today in Jesus name Amen.
Prayer point: JESUS, please send help my way today, you have the answer.
Key Dose: Regardless of your challenges, there are answers for you in Christ Jesus.
