The Unfailing Lord
A Promise Keeper

The Lord is my shepherd I shall not be in want (Psalm 23:1)

In the early years of my ministry, I had gone through several economic crises. The days were not good enough for my family and even for me. The church I have been ministering at was almost forty-five kilometers away from my home. It took me almost one and a half hours to get there. During this trial, I ran out of money and had to go to church. That morning, I was praying to the Lord, and I said to Him. "Lord, I am Your servant, and you have appointed me to this duty." Because it was "Good Friday," I said to Jesus during my morning prayer, "Jesus, if you have defeated sin, death, Satan, and the grave on the Cross, this economic challenge is nothing for You." In every human tension, you were, are, and will be triumphant. And I asked the Lord for help.

A miracle that I can never forget happened as an outcome of this prayer! God spoke to my brother as he was in prayer, telling him to support me during the difficult period. He was residing on the upper floor while I was living on the lower. He came to me with an envelope and gave me an amount saying, the Lord says, He is your shepherd, and you shall not want. I received the envelope with gratitude in my heart!! Since that day, I have never ever forgotten to say in any challenging circumstance. "Lord you are my shepherd, and it is you who never fails in your promises I shall not be in want".

Have you ever thought about the economic crises that have devastated the lives of thousands of thousands on this globe? How do you get encouraged when you see needy people, especially in underdeveloped countries, dying because of not having food and not having enough resources to nurture their families?

The promise of the Lord reminds us to be helpful to the needy ones. It is our responsibility being the body of Christ to care for one another. Today, our brothers and sisters are in great need and we have enough God-provided resources, Amen!

Let's lift up our eyes and ask the Lord's help who never fails in His promises declaring that if we help our brothers and sisters we shall not be in want because the Lord is our shepherd. Jesus said, “do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:34).

Let’s see our surroundings and ask the Lord to have mercy upon this world. Make us the vessels of blessings so that we may help our brothers and sisters in need. Let's make this prayer our daily prayer, Lord if you have defeated sin, death, Satan, and the grave on the Cross these economic crises are nothing for you. Lord, give us all in abundance. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
