“Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand.”
Jesus said something very important in the book of John,
“I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.”
When you got born again you were brought into Christ and Christ was brought into you (Colossians 1:27). You inseparably became one with Him. This means His agenda is now your agenda, His work is now your work. Our opening verse lets us know that His (Christ’s) seed will prolong His days and the work of the Lord will prosper in His hands, how? Through His seed!
Jesus trusted us enough to die for us believing in us that we would complete the works of His Father. He was sure of us! For this reason, you must be sure of yourself. You must be confident and conscious that you are His extension on the earth and live accordingly. You must choose to stand firm and strong for the will of God, no matter the cost. Always inquire from the Holy Spirit what is the will of God and choose to be on the Lord’s side. Let Him be your standard for everything.
Do not live your life for yourself alone. Remember our opening text says that the will of the Lord will prosper in His hands (through His seed). 1 Timothy 2:1-4 lets us know the will of the Lord.
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
1 Timothy 2:1-4
Do not live a self-centred life, it is cheap to do so. Take your charge of the office The Lord has assigned to you and begin to make changes in the Nations.
