The Lord bless you! The Lord keep you! The Lord make His face shine upon you! And give you grace!
We experience God’s faithfulness every day. He really amazes us. He is really a loving, loving Heavenly Father. It is good to know that most of our Household of Faith families are well. It is a time of testing, but it is good to know that the Word of God has been incarnated on the inside of you.
During this Covid-19 pandemic, we are privileged to be a blessing to many people experiencing financial and other challenges. The Bible says, if you see your brother or sister suffering, and you do not help, how can you say that the love of God is in you? We need to share the love of God. We need to trust God that everything will be better for everyone in the future. We are missing you all during this time of lockdown, but God is still in control of our lives.
Paul spoke to Timothy in 1 Corinthians 4:17 (NKJV): “For this reason I have sent Timothy to you, who is my beloved and faithful son in the Lord, who will remind you of my ways in Christ, as I teach everywhere in every church”.
He then explains the meaning of the word faithful: consistently trustworthy, steadfast, reliable, committed, devoted, dependable, accurate, believable and true. God is looking for these characteristics in all of us. I am so thankful and grateful that God has given us faithful sons in the Lord. Thank you for your faithfulness.
Malachi 1:6 (NKJV)
“A son honors his father,
And a servant his master.
If then I am the Father,
Where is My honor?
And if I am a Master,
Where is My reverence?
Says the Lord of hosts
To you priests who despise My name.
Yet you say, ‘In what way have we despised Your name’?
We give to God to thank Him for taking care of us. We are returning to God what belongs to Him. It’s an honouring principle. We are really proud of each one of you. May God bless and increase you. The time of famine is the best time to sow. In this time of famine, when you give, may God give you a hundredfold return. Isaac sowed in the time of famine, and he received a hundredfold.
I also want to pray for our President, His Excellency Cyril Ramaphosa. May God bless him with wisdom, insight and bring righteousness to government. May all unrighteousness be removed. May Godly men and women stand with our President.
I also want to thank our essential services workers, doctors, nurses, medical staff and so on; may God protect all of them. We also want to encourage our students. I always believe that God is a God of compensation. He will redeem the time. We want to pray for job security and businesses. May God rejuvenate, bring freshness to your business, witty inventions, may God expand your business. Many may go down, but you will not go down because the hand of God is upon your life. God has chosen you for such a time as this. For all who are unemployed, may God provide work for you. We pray for the elderly, those who are lonely. May God really bless you, comfort you at this time. May everything go well with our people. Lord, may You supernaturally provide for all our people.
Numbers 6:24-26 (NKJV)
24 “The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace”.
