“Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in the power of your hand to do so” (Proverb 3:27).
Shortly after I started working as a newly qualified medical doctor, an unemployed male nurse approached and begged me to get him a job in the government hospital. A few vacant positions were up for grabs at that time, and several thousands of nurses all over applied for it. He was one of them!
Meanwhile, in our setting, things are generally not done on merit, but on a connection. The nurse felt I had an enormous connection to fix him up, being a medical doctor. I told him I had no such connection since I was very green in the system. He did not believe me, and he continued to beg me ad-infinitum, till I caved in. I did not know what step I should take next!
The following day, I went to the office responsible for hiring health workers, and I pleaded with an elderly man I saw there to help me out. I wasn’t close to him, but, he told me 95% of the advertised vacancies had been grabbed by the few greedy politicians in charge, leaving just 5% for the rest of the populace. Nonetheless, he promised to put in a good word for my candidate if he did well at the interview.
Immediately, I started to coach my candidate for several hours daily till he went for the interview. In addition, I worked hard on his mind, assuring him each time that he would get the job if he remained positive. I prayed with him too, though I was not a Christian then.
The interview went well, and my candidate performed brilliantly in it, and the kind man lived up to his promise of putting in a good word for him, and he was given one of the few positions left. Today, he is doing great to the glory of God. I dared to do something good for him!
Friends, today, you too can dare do something good for someone out there. Put in a good word for him or her, do something on his or her bill or school fees within the limits of your resources. Visit that lonely old man or woman down your street. Moreover, rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn (Romans 12:15).
Please, call or write to congratulate someone on his or her new appointment, birthday, promotion, success at school, etc. Your smile and warmth can equally make somebody’s day, so, use them liberally. It is okay to pray for people as well; remember, prayer is a very potent Christian weapon (James 5:16).
Yes, some people might have taken advantage of you in the past, kindly don’t stop doing good for that reason, and you will reap good rewards someday (Galatians 6:9). Remember, you will reap whatever you sow (Galatians 6:7), and whatever you do for anyone now, you do for God also, and He will reward you lavishly in the end (Matthew 25:31-40), in Jesus name. Amen.
I used to smoke cigarettes while I was young, and like most boys in my time, I picked up smoking due to peer group influence. In a short time, I became addicted to it! What I thought was fun initially, soon became a major problem I had to struggle with for a long time.
I developed severe chest pain and difficulty with breathing, which troubled me incessantly. Meanwhile, I did not respond well to medications, and each time I tried to stop smoking cigarette, I experienced serious withdrawal symptoms, which no one could take care of for me.
I knew I was in trouble, so, I sought help from God one day. I asked Him to save me, and in return, I promised to serve Him better. Then and there, I stopped smoking cigarette! To my joy, the first day, the first week, the first month, the first year, the first decade, etc. went by, I did not smoke any cigarette, and I did not experience any withdrawal symptom, not even for a second.
Before long, my health improved vastly; I stopped having chest pain, and I began to breathe and sleep well again. Besides, I began to look fresh and healthy, and my signature smiling face/confidence came back like a flood. To cut a long story short, God saved me from the deadly grip of addiction and health scare, and He did so easily and swiftly. I give Him praise!
Friends, what problem are you grappling with right now? Today, I urge you to take it to God in prayer, through Jesus Christ. He can save you easily and swiftly, just like He saved me when I took my problem to Him (Matthew 11:28). Remember, nothing is too difficult for Him (Jeremiah 32:27), and He can do all things beyond our expectation (Ephesians 3:20).
Please, commit your wayward children into His hands; He can save them (Isaiah 49:25). Also, commit your failing health into His hands; He can heal you (Jeremiah 33:6). In addition, commit your finances into His hands; He wants you to prosper (3 John 2). Are you single, and do you want to marry someday? If you do, pray to Him about your status; He can give you a good spouse, sooner or later (Psalm 84:11).
God can help you in other areas of your life too (Isaiah 41:10), and He will stop at nothing to do so (Isaiah 45:2-3). He will guide you continually (Psalm 32:8), and boost your gifts (talents), and they will make way for you (Proverbs 18:16). Moreover, He will set before you an open door that no man can shut (Revelation 3:8a).
What’s more, He will cause things to fall in place for you (Matthew 6:31-33), and make people, even your enemies, to be at peace with you (Proverbs 16:7). He can do all above and more, easily and swiftly (Isaiah 65:24), and your life will never remain the same again, in Jesus name. Amen.
Jesus is Lord!
