Rev David challenges us that no matter how many negative things life (or people) throw our way, we can put that burden on Jesus and overcome. Our lives can be totally transformed just like Bartimaeus' life in Mark chapter 10.
Bro. Johnathan encourages us that even in our delays we can find purpose and that we need to get ready to step out from hiding into our God given destiny. He draws inspiration from Saul being anointed King over Israel in 1st Samuel chapter 9.
Ps Lai Fun explores our God given potential to change our circumstances and reminds us to be bold before God just like the 5 daughters were bold enough to approach Moses and produce a change in Numbers chapter 27.
Text: Numbers 27: 1-8 "One day a petition was presented by the daughters of Zelophehad—Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah. Their father, Zelophehad, was a descendant of Hepher son of Gilead, son of Makir, son of Manasseh, son of Joseph.These women stood before Moses, Eleazar the priest, the tribal leaders, and the entire community at the entrance of the Tabernacle.[a]“Our father died in the wilderness,” they said. “He was not among Korah’s followers, who rebelled against the Lord; he died because of his own sin. But he had no sons.Why should the name of our father disappear from his clan just because he had no sons? Give us property along with the rest of our relatives.”So Moses brought their case before the Lord.And the Lord replied to Moses,“The claim of the daughters of Zelophehad is legitimate. You must give them a grant of land along with their father’s relatives. Assign them the property that would have been given to their father.“And give the following instructions to the people of Israel: If a man dies and has no son, then give his inheritance to his daughters.
Rev. David Ramayah reminds us to keep our focus on God, the One who brings the blessing, and He can help us overcome our doubts. He illustrates this on the powerful example of Jesus raising Lazarus in John chapter 11.
Text (main): Mark 9:24 "The father instantly cried out, “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!”"
