Memorise: The hope of the righteous shall be gladness: but the expectation of the wicked shall perish. Proverbs 10:28

Read: Ecclesiastes 11:1-6

  1. Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days.
  2. Give a portion to seven, and also to eight; for thou knowest not what evil shall be upon the earth.
  3. If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth: and if the tree fall toward the south, or toward the north, in the place where the tree falleth, there it shall be.
  4. He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap.
  5. As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all.
  6. In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 32-33; 1 Peter 1:1-25

MESSAGE:

In 2 Kings 7:1-11 , the lepers took a step forward in their bid to advance towards their enemies and soon found them all gone. It is only those who move forward that can leave sorrow, sickness and problems behind and enter into a future of hope, joy, health and prosperity.

Fear and faith are the same thing from two opposite ends. While fear is the belief that something negative is about to happen, faith is the belief that something positive is about to happen. When the four lepers advanced towards the camp of the Syrian army expecting the worst, they were shocked to have their breakthrough with no single soldier in sight. Never stop your advance because of something you are afraid of. Behind your fear is your breakthrough. What are you afraid of? What is that thing you dread so much that has made you to stop? You have to put your fear aside and move forward. Don’t let fear cripple you through life. Fear only has the power you give to it.

Action Point:

List those things you have been afraid of. Prayerfully take steps to confront and overcome them.

Hymn: There Shall Be Showers Of Blessing

  1. There shall be showers of blessing
    This is the promise of love;
    There shall be season refreshing
    Sent from the Savior above

Chorus:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drop ’round are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

  1. There shall be showers of blessing
    Precious reviving again;
    Over the hills and the valleys,
    Sound of abundance of rain.
  2. There shall be showers of blessing
    Send them upon us O Lord
    Grant to us a refreshing;
    Come now and honor Thy Word.
  3. There shall be showers of blessing
    Oh that today thy might fall,
    Now as to God we are confessing,
    Now as on Jesus we call!
