Life without Christ is full of crisis. Subscribed to Jesus and your crisis will be over (See John.10:10).
Life without God is a toil. Peter toiled all the night and caught nothing, but when he obeyed Jesus, he had a net breaking harvest (See Luke 5:5).
Life does not make sense without God. Trying to lift your problems without God is like trying to lift a lorry without a jack. God is the backbone of life. Until you resign to Him, your life remains a struggle (See John 15:5).
Only Christ can give your life a new meaning. If you can plug yourself into Him and His instructions, your life would begin to have a bearing (…they shall build the old wasteplaces– Isaiah.58:12). Life has no bearing outside Jesus – you are just living by the law of accident without him. Your ups and downs business can still have a new shape; your deteriorating health can still be restored; your marriage which is on the verge of separation and divorce can still be restored. All you need to do is to accept and follow (obey) Him.
It is not too late to take a u-turn. If you are heading towards the wrong direction, it’s wisdom to take a turn. Turn to Christ and live a life that you deserved. Fulfilled and impactful living are guaranteed in Christ.
The greatest goal in life is not to make money, but to find destiny. Jesus wants you to find destiny. He doesn’t want you to continue like this. This life you’re living is not the one He designed for you. You are into drugs, smoking, drinking, lying, and cheating. That’s not in God’s great design for your life. It’s the devil that erodes your destiny with your agreement. You can start all over again. It’s never too late.
“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Mathew. 11:28.
In Him alone, you can find rest. The world is restless. There was a storm that troubled the disciples of Jesus, they were worn out in a bid to rescue themselves, but Jesus was sleeping. But when they invited Him to the situation, He calmed the storm. I don’t know the storm ravaging your destiny right now. It could be stormy marriage or financial hardship. Invite Jesus and He will calm the storm.
Your years of toiling are over. Life is an ordinary struggle outside Christ. Peter and others toiled all night and caught nothing. They were professional fishermen but yet, there was nothing to show for their professionalism. They have been casting their net into the wrong place. In the same way, you are skillful but there have been no results despite your skills & intelligence. But when they allowed Jesus in their boat. He asked them to cast their net to the right side. And as they did, they had a net-breaking harvest and asked their partners on the other side to assist with the harvest. Peter’s one-man business expanded into a partnership business (See John.2:5).
Wait a minute, you’ve been casting your net on the wrong side. The job you are doing is wrong. You have made a serious investment in things that God didn’t author (He is the author and finisher of our faith, but He won’t finish what He didn’t start) which has only yielded nothing but losses. Jesus is asking you today, would you let me into your boat? Do you know that there are good and right things? Your current job might be a good one but not right? The devil knows that you are smart to do the wrong thing, He deceives you with a good thing so that you can let go of the right thing.
God wants you back into His original plan for you. Would allow Him to help you or do you still want to do it all by yourself. By not involving God in your life, you are lifting a lorry without a jack. He says: without me, you can do nothing. If you invest in something that God does not approve of, you will pay for it. That’s why it’s difficult for you to make money. Because the assignment you are pursuing is not orchestrated by God. God has a budget for His project on earth. If you pursue divine assignment, God provides. The Psalmist says: “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” Psalm.23:1. When God leads, He provides.
Friend, receive my invitation. If you have not accepted Jesus, here is an opportunity to do so now. He is the only way and the truth. You are free by knowing Him. Don’t stay in the middle of the road. It’s a risk. Come to Jesus. Maybe, you’ve once received Christ but you’re no longer in Him, reading your Bible has become dried. You’ve lost your passion for the things of God. Rededicate your life to Jesus. He is the only One that can save you from struggles.
Pray this prayer with me: Father, In the name of Jesus, once I was blind and now I can see. I received and confessed that you are my personal Lord and savior. Thank you Jesus for accepting me.
Congratulations! If you’ve just said that prayer, you are welcome to the family of Christ. Find a Bible-based Church and join. I know that your life will never remain the same.
