Dearly Beloved, YOU WILL LIVE AGAIN! "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease" (Genesis 8:22 NIV). One of my observations since the time I came to this western world has to do with the changes in the seasons of the year. Obviously, this will be so as somebody who was coming from a hot-climate area of Africa to a very cold-climate area of Northern Ireland in the United Kingdom. I came to this part of the world during the autumn season. As the season changed to winter, I watched as many plants and trees started becoming “dead” by shedding all their leaves. Throughout winter, a first timer in this part of the world would think that these plants and trees are lifeless and dry like the leafless trees in tropical part of the world. But, someone who is familiar with the seasons here knows that the leafless and seeming dry plants and trees are very lively. As the spring season started, I noticed that these seeming lifeless plants and trees have started budding flesh leafs. It seems new life is coming into them. I am inspired especially by this new life that is coming to the seeming lifeless plants and trees. If God can be fulfilling His promise in Genesis 8:22 in the lives of ordinary plants and trees, and they are coming back to life again, He will fulfil His promises in my life. No matter how lifeless I may seemingly be, I will blossom again. If an ordinary tree has hope when it is cut down that it will sprout again and that its new shoots will not fail (see Job 14:7), no matter my downfall, I will rise again. If tree’s roots grow old in the ground and its stump die in the soil, and yet at the scent of water it will bud and put forth shoots like a plant (see Job 14:8-9), no matter my set back, I will progress in life. I join Prophet Micah to declare: “Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the Lord will be my light” (7:8 NIV). The Lord took Prophet Ezekiel to the valley of very dry bones, and asked him if the dry bones could live again. The prophet could not answer in the affirmative. God asked him to prophesy to the dry bones. He did, and the dry bones came back to life (see Ezekiel 37). Are you feeling lifeless and hopeless in your situation? You will live again! There is hope for you. You may be in the winter time of your life, the spring time is coming when you will spring up. If the Lord is keeping His promise for ordinary plants and trees, He will fulfil His promises in your life. I say again, you will live again! In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Lord, bring me to the spring season of my life and let me flourish again.

Spiritual Digest for the Day 02Apr2016

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “Do they not err who devise evil and wander from the way of life? But loving-kindness and mercy, loyalty and faithfulness, shall be to those who devise good” (Proverbs 14:22 AMP). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY Acting foolishly, expecting God to bail you out when things go amiss, is not faith, it is presumption. Wisdom says do all you can, and then trust God to do what you cannot do. Faith and careful planning go hand-in-hand. They always have and they always will! - Bob Gass ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will always act wisely as you apply your faith in God.
