MERRY MONDAY BY PARRIS-
Ps 41:1-3 – TPT – God always blesses those who are kind to the poor and helpless. They’re the first ones God helps when they find themselves in any trouble. The Lord will preserve and protect them. They’ll be honored and esteemed while their enemies are defeated. When they are sick, God will restore them, lying upon their bed of suffering. He will raise them up again and restore them back to health.
There has been a law of sowing and reaping throughout time. Even people who are not God believers believe in some sort of sowing and reaping. I find that the scripture in Ps 41 clearly states that the first ones helped through their difficulties are the ones that help others. In fact lots of promises are packed into this psalm. Jonathan Edwards says; “To him they shall flee, as one who is abroad, and sees a terrible storm arising, makes haste to some shelter to secure himself; so that however furious is the tempest, yet he is safe within, and the wind and rain, though they beat never so impetuously upon the roof and walls, are no annoyance unto him.”
Secular newspapers are reeling with talk of recession and depression as if thats the new normal. I believe that we will have peace and security despite what is going on with the world. I pray that you too, during this time, can feel his mighty hand upon your lives. Proverbs 19:2 says, “Also it is not good for a person to be without knowledge, and he who makes haste with his feet errs.” Knowledge without Christ leads us into snares but we must in these days run in the ways of his commandments.
Spurgeon says “God will think of him. God measures to us with our own bushel. Days of trouble come even to the most generous, and they have made the wisest provision for rainy days who have lent shelter to others when times were better with them. The promise is not that the generous saint shall have no trouble, but that he shall be preserved in it, and in due time brought out of it. He secures the ultimate victory of all his blood bought ones.”
If you find yourself stricken with sickness/virus pray His word over you because you will be raised up again and be restored back to health. Don’t be in condemnation that you got infected. Use it as a testimony to others that God will raise them up!
Whatever the days ahead look like we all know that God will never leave us nor forsake and the righteous will flourish like the palm tree and will bear their fruit in due time!
