As we await hope for the needy – Part 1
It is no longer in doubt that many people that have been disappointed and disillusioned during the year look up to the special annual programme entitled: HOPE FOR THE NEEDY as their last hope. The reason is that the Almighty God has consistently and mightily shown His presence at the programme through diverse signs and wonders through which many have been delivered, healed and blessed. Many that attended the programme in the past can attest to this.
The echoes of the wonderful work of God in the last programme are still reverberating across the cities and communities and have consequently spurred many to look forward to the next programme. As they heard others rejoicing; they keep asking when their own time of visitation will come. But thank God, the time has come. God is set to make as many as will attend the programme to rejoice, by rekindling a new hope in the people.
Isaiah 35: 5- 6 says, “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then shall the lame man leap as an hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing: for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.”
Nobody will attend the crusade and go home without having his need met. The mark of hopelessness that has dominated people’s mind shall end after the crusade. People’s hope shall be realised in the area of business, health and education, thus causing the entire nation to erupt in joy that will usher in peace to the citizenry.
So, if you have presented any need to God before, but have not received an answer, and as a result, you have lost hope, even in God’s ability to do it, I want to assure you that if you attend this special programme, you shall have hope again. If there is a prayer you have made concerning loved ones and have not seen the physical manifestation, I want to assure you that the same God that brought this programme, Who has been blessing others in the past through this programme shall give you hope for your need in Jesus name. It does not matter how bad your situation may be. The fact is that this time, God has assured the needy an enduring hope and because He has never disappointed before, He will not disappoint now.
You may have been in pain for one reason or the other and thinking that God has abandoned you because your situation looks hopeless. I assure you that by this programme, a new hope is coming your way. It may be the pain of stroke, it may be the pain of poverty, barrenness, lack of promotion, it may also be sicknesses such as HIV, diabetes, cancer and arthritis, among others, and you have been praying and fasting for solution, but there has been no answer to your prayer. I want to assure you that this time around, God Who created you and Who knows your predicament, is determined to let you have the touch of His blessing this time. That same God, who died on the cross for you has not forgotten you. He is the hope of the hopeless, and will give you hope of peace at this crusade in Jesus name. So, bring that problem that has defied solution to Him and He will give you the desired blessing.
Beloved, only God has the power to rekindle hope. No human solution can give you that lasting hope you need. That rich man has not got the blessings that will change your ugly life, neither have your parents got all the blessings that will give you a lasting hope. Your boss in the office lacks what it takes to give you enduring hope. Only God has the power to revive your hope because He is the embodiment of hope.
John 10: 10b says, “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” When God saw mankind’s hopelessness and how they were wallowing in darkness, suffering from one problem to another, He sent His only Son Jesus Christ to redeem them; that they might have life and not just mere living, but an abundant of it, including all those things that are needful to make life happy. The coming of our Lord Jesus Christ opened a heavenly portal for humanity, and we thus have access to all heavenly blessings, which include healing, mercy, grace, salvation, Holy Ghost baptism, good health, freedom, peace, promotion, joy, dominion, and above all, the privilege for a glorious immortality. Anybody who is filled with the aforementioned heavenly treasures will have abundant hope.
Beloved, God is interested in the affairs of the needy and has designed this programme for them. Are you among the needy? If the answer is in the affirmative, I want to assure you that your sighing shall end. The only duty you have is to bring your need to the Lord and leave it there, for He will surely deliver you, if you put your trust in Him.
Ps 12:5 says, “For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the LORD; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him.”
The above context shows how important the needy are to God. You can imagine the virtue that is in the sighs of the needy; that should move the Almighty God to rise from His throne. From the verse above, it is very obvious that the needy does not have to speak, but could only sigh in secret and that will awake the Almighty’s attention. How I wish the needy reading this message would take advantage of the promise of this Scriptural context and be able to lay hold upon it and gratefully fetch the fullness of comfort from it. Through it, he will definitely derive the comfort of the covenant to himself, if he will be able to apply it.
Are you a sinner in need of salvation? Have you lost hope of making heaven? I want to let you know that at this crusade, our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the Hope of the needy, and Who died for your sin shall give you hope again. Are you afflicted with one disease or another and the doctor is saying there is no hope of survival? I want to tell you that the doctor’s word is not the final. The final word is reserved for God. Don’t be discouraged, for at this crusade, there shall be hope for the needy and your situation shall positively improve in Jesus name. I don’t know the area of your life that is in need of God’s intervention, but whatever is your need, be assured the Lord will arise for you and you shall be delivered.
