And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains. My fellow prisoner Aristarchus sends you his greetings, as does Mark, the cousin of Barnabas. (You have received instructions about him; if he comes to you, welcome him.)Colossians 4:3, 10 NIV
Paul was arrested for spreading the Gospel of Christ. But the high walls in prison did not stop him from spreading and sharing the Gospel.
On the 26th of March 2020, the entire country went into a level 5 lockdown. Most churches used social media to spread and share the Word of God. My debut book, God’s Radiant Light could not be launched due to this. But, God’s grace is so sufficient that His Word was shared behind closed doors.
Through daily devotions/ prayers shared with fellow saints, the book sales soared. As I write this message, about 150 homes in different provinces have this “pulpit”. The Word of God is alive in these homes through God’s Radiant Light. Their neighbours will also experience God’s transforming Radiance. They will meditate upon the words contained in the book and be His Radiant Lights.
This has really been an amazing period. Making it clear that God’s mercies are not bound by circumstances.
I declared each morning that God is faithful, and He will ensure that the first box is emptied. Indeed He did. As His children, we must learn to have faith and know that we should not focus on the size of our immediate problems, but put our entire focus on God. He promised never to leave us nor forsake us. The Psalmist puts it beautiful that He has never seen the righteous forsaken. The moment you put on the breastplate of righteousness and accept to be turned into a new creation, a new wineskin. God will show you that He created you for a purpose, you are His perfect gift from above. Lean on God, let Jesus be your friend.
let us pray
Thank You Lord. My lips shall not cease praising You. In the Mighty powerful name of Jesus. Amen
