Memorise: For his anger endureth but a moment in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. Psalms 30:5
Read: Exodus 3:1-10
While most people have lost one or two crucial stakes in life, a few have lost everything. One person who went through this experience was Job. Yet, he did not commit suicide. Have you lost so much that you feel you can no longer stand up to measure up with your colleagues again as a result, you think you should end your life? Don’t! Never try it! Suicide is not an option! If Job had taken the path of suicide, he would not have witnessed his restoration. He would never have become a Bible hero. He would never have seen the end of the saga. Beloved, in that unpleasant state of loss, denial, rejection, disappointment and sorrow, there is another side. Soon, you will see the other side. All who took the path of suicide never saw the beautiful side their dark moment covered. Just be patient and trust in the Lord. Hold fast to Him, and He will cause the glorious picture you have always craved for to come to light. Have you lost everything? You will recover all. Job recovered all, and got several folds of what he lost and God gave him additional years to enjoy his restoration. That will be your portion this season!
God restores destiny, lost dreams and vision at the dawn of a jubilee. Moses desired to deliver Israel at 40 but made a slip and became a fugitive for 40 years. Just when he thought all was over for him, his jubilee dawned and he encountered God in the burning bush; his lost destiny was restored. Have you bungled your destiny through sin or disobedience? Cry to God this period, seeking His face of mercy; you will get back your destiny. Have you lost that vision for ministry, business or a particular project and have given up hope of ever doing it? Don’t give up! You will recover that dream or vision. Focus on normalising your relationship with God and pleasing Him in all you do from now on. Worship Him regularly and win souls to Christ.
As far as God is concerned, nothing is really lost. Father, dust up my forgotten dream and establish it today.
