Trust in the Lord (PSALM 125:1 - 2)

1 Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever.

2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.

With just these two verses, they do speak volumes to all believers of Christ, especially during this covid pandemic whereby people are affected mentally, physically and spiritually. These two verses relay to us the promise of God. When we trust in Him, we are like “Mount Zion which cannot be shaken but endures forever.” We have God’s protection all around us at all times. He surrounds us (His people) like the mountains surround Jerusalem and He will do so both now and forever!”

Trust God – these two words are easier said than done. It is definitely easier to trust God when times are good with everything going smoothly and according to how you want or plan it to be. But when the bad times come and things feel uncertain, people tend to question God especially when help does not come fast enough. However, it is during those bad times that it is even more important to trust God. When things around us are “tossing and churning,” bringing us fear and anxiety, we can rely on Jesus because He is our Firm Foundation. He is our Solid Rock! (Matthew 7:24-27) 

When you trust someone, you believe in that person’s ability, reliability and strength. When it comes to trusting God, it means believing in His reliability, His ability, His strength and His Word. God always keeps His promises as He cannot lie because He is perfect and sinless. However, we can choose whether we want to trust God or not. But if we choose not to trust God and rely on the circumstances surrounding us, those things are definitely not reliable and they can change any moment. God, on the other hand, is more reliable because He does not change. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

We do not know when or how the covid pandemic will end, but God knows. What we can do is to pray and trust Him because He knows and understands the situation that we are in. Trust that He will grant us His protection, that He will put a stop to this pandemic, and that some good positive things will emerge from this pandemic. Trusting in God makes us to be as strong as Mount Zion and allows us to remain unshaken by circumstances and change. Trusting in Him also brings peace, strength and comfort into our lives.

Suggested Prayer:

Jesus, thank you that those who trust in You are secured and cannot be moved for You are with us to protect and provide for us no matter what we may face today and the days ahead. 

In Jesus’ Name. Amen

The Danger of Spiritual Infancy (Hebrews 5:11 - 6:12)

Have you met people who refuse to grow up? There are some adults who prefer to remain as children because they do not want to take on adult responsibilities. Not only is immature behaviour unpleasant to observe or deal with, the consequences are often destructive. In Hebrews 5:11-14, the writer expresses his frustration that some members of the church were refusing to grow into spiritual maturity. They were no longer trying to understand God’s word (v 11). Instead of taking on the responsibility of teaching others as they themselves had been taught, they needed to be taught the basics all over again (v12). Therefore, they were unable to take on “solid food” which is for mature Christians, and they were not able to distinguish good from evil (v14) or to understand teaching about righteousness (v13). Spiritual maturity is a necessary part of our walk with God. Remaining as a spiritual infant means that you are not good at discerning right from wrong and you will have a hard time maintain

A prophet prophesies and the church fully obeys (Acts 11:27- 12:4)

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul. 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. 2 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. 3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. When Jewish believers from Cyprus (Europe) and Cyrene (Liby

THE BLESSINGS OF HIS NAME (Numbers 6:22 - 27

I find this interesting because I remember listening to Pastor Betty’s message for 2021, and it was on the same Benediction Blessing verses. And today’s Scripture reading is exactly the same, and I am sure the Holy Spirit wants to remind us of “The Blessings of His Name” for 2022. Today, our mobile phones are loaded with New Year wishes, TV and radio personalities wish into microphones and cameras – we hear them from so many different sources. Carefully note what God tells us: “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them, The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; The LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace.’ So, they will put My name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:23-27) In this way, God places His all-important NAME on us, His people. A comparison would be that of signing on a cheque. An unsigned check is void and worthless until the owner ‘s “name” has been pl
