DAY 15 THURSDAY: OCTOBER 2020

GOD’S WORD CAN EFFECT A CHANGE!

And He said to them, “Cast the net on the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast, and now they were not able to draw it in because of the multitude of fish (John 21:6).

Jesus Christ appeared to His disciples at the sea. They went on fishing expedition and toiled all through the night in life. Their experience and labor proved abortive without anything to show for it in life. At the early dawn, they saw a man not knowing that it was their Master, Jesus Christ. He ordered them to cast their net on the right side of their boat. When they obeyed, they caught multitude of fish and could not draw the net out of the water. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God’s Word can effect a change in his life. Hence, absolute obedience to God’s Word effects a change and transformation in one’s life forever.

The question is, “Where did those multitudes of fish come from?” The disciples, with all their experiences toiled through the night without anything to show for it in life. Thank God for the Master who came to intervene in their situation? The Word of God effected a change in their lives and changed their stories for the better in life. The Bible tells us that the Word of God cannot return void without fulfilling its purpose in one’s life (Isaiah 55:11). Therefore, a Christian should strive as much as possible to hold on to God’s Word by faith and allow it to effect a positive change in his life to the glory of God. Indeed, God’s Word is absolutely capable to turn around every negative situation in one’s life forever.

The Word of God can effect a change in that your situation no matter the challenges and obstacles; if only you will have faith in God. The Bible tells us that with God all things are possible in life. As Christians, we should never be afraid and worry over nothing in life. We should learn to look up to God and cast our cares upon Him because He cares for us so much in life. God’s Word is able to effect a change in your life, marriage, business, etc. In fact, a Christian should take note of the fact that there is no condition too big in life that God cannot handle. Whenever God is on a Christian’s side everything becomes absolutely possible in his life forever.

Daily Tip: Have faith in God and hold unto His everlasting Word of life. The Word of God does not fail nor disappoint in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says (Mark 11:23).
