CAPTION: From Grass To Grace
WORD CREDENCE: Psalms 40:2 (KJV) “He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings”
The erstwhile British legend and playwright – Williams Shakespeare correctly wrote that Some people were born great; Some aquired greatness; While some have greatness entrusted upon them. So, many folks need to patiently build up their success story from the scratch. From Grass to Grace is always a story of captivating testimony. A narrative of rough to smooth; bad to good; lack to abundance; sickness to heath; backwardness to progress; retardation to promotion; error to corrections; poverty to riches, etc, is not peculiar. It is pertinent to note that life path is not usually a straight line from a point to another. Rather, it is okay when it keeps going on in ascending order. No one gets it very well from the beginning; just like a toddler learning how to walk. No wonder the Bible says a righteous may fall several times and still finding his feet again. However, when a man’s past is better than his present, it is a real problem. Whereas the Godly order is found in (Proverbs 4:18) “But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day”. For examples: David started life so humbly; he finally attained royal splendor. Joseph passed through the pit, slavery and prison before his palace dreams came true. Esther was an orphan adopted by a captive uncle Mordecai, yet she became choiced queen. Daniel rose from captivity to become a governor in a foreign land. Jabez had bouts with misfortunes before divine intervention bailed him out. Abraham, Jacob, Job, Ruth, Obededom, Elijah, Moses, etc, had their own afflictions and down periods; before they triumphed. Even our Lord Jesus Christ encountered castigating, betrayals, torture and gruesome death on the cross before He was glorified. Despising the days of humble beginnings is not good. Murmuring in the time of adversity is not good as well. No condition is permanent. All things work together for good for believers. Enough of blaming God ignorantly. The story of Grass To Grace is much inspiring and edifying anywhere. Everyone will have some story to tell. Therefore, be calm in faith. Your better change is coming soon. Cheerfully keep the hope alive. Hear (2 Corinthians 3:18) “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. You shall breakthrough. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
