“Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory” - Psalm 50: 15 (NIV). 

Perhaps you have heard the song, “Something good is going to happen to you!” as you should. It has numerous versions, for your information. One is about a blind man who “sat by the gate, To listen to footsteps and patiently wait. The blind man just didn't dream that this was the day, That Jesus of Nazareth would pass by his way.”

The blind man’s story is interesting in that where Jesus’s disciples seemed more concerned about the genesis of his plight, rather, that was not much of his concern. “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him” (John 6:3). Indeed, soon, “After saying this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes.  “Go,” he told him, “wash in the Pool of Siloam” … So the man went and washed, and came home seeing” (vv 6-7).

Like the blind man, something good is going to happen to you! There are those who are more concerned and agitated about the circumstances you are in, but when Jesus passes by that would not be any of his concerns. Something good is going to happen to you- there are those who see your situation as a matter of intellectual curiosity but when Jesus passes by, that will be nothing like his concerns. Something good is going to happen to you- for, like the blind man you have sat patiently waiting- and Jesus is soon passing by!

Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I rise, with a song in my heart, it is a song of hope, for something good is going to happen to me, because I have believed and waited on Jesus, and all my troubles shall be no more, for something good is going, this  I pray in  Jesus’s name.

    “Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen capstone in the hand of Zerubbabel” ( Zechariah 4:10).

    The public life of King David is well known. However, there is an early aspect of his life quite hidden though we can get glimpse of it. The first time we get to know David he is a stay home kid while his big brothers are on to bigger stuff, like fighting with King Saul. “Jesse’s three oldest sons had followed Saul to the war: The firstborn was Eliab; the second, Abinadab; and the third, Shammah. David was the youngest. The three oldest followed Saul, but David went back and forth from Saul to tend his father’s sheep at Bethlehem” ( I Samuel 27:13-14).

    Left home alone perhaps it was a time for David to bond with the old man Jesse. Maybe he sometimes felt idle and ignored. But there was something maturing in his life for the life ahead. For in the meantime as he would later point to King Saul once an opportunity availed itself, God was ironing out his CV. When he offered to take on Goliath and Saul hesitated, he quickly shot back: “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear; this uncircumcised Philistine will be like one of them, because he has defied the armies of the living God. The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine” (vv 35-37).

    That’s the point. What had apparent been idle moments God was preparing David for the battles ahead? He would not only emerge out of the shadow as a great warrior but also a shepherd of his people ever relying on God.

    Equally so, for all of us, there are moments that might appear idle and we feel frustrated as we see the days go by. Yet, in His gentle ways, God is preparing us for great days ahead.

    Prayer today: Lord Father God, maker of heaven and earth, for those periods in life of apparent inactivity and maybe trials, help me appreciate them as the maturing me, for in due time and season all will bear fruit, this I pray in Jesus’ name!
