Scripture Reading: Psalms 92:12-15
Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka made this prophetic statement: “Do not lose hope!” “Do not lose hope!” “Believe God”, “God is faithful!” Dear Child of God I know that you would have received endless messages about bearing fruit in old age, about being hopeful even when all hope is lost, but today the Holy Spirit wants you to understand what He means when He says to you “You will bear fruit in old age,” what it personally means to you and what it intends to achieve in your life. The word of God reassures us in Isaiah 55:10-11 thus, “My word is like the snow and the rain that come down from the sky to water the earth. They make the crops grow and provide seed for sowing and food to eat. So also will be the word that I speak, it will not fail to do what I plan for it; it will do everything I send it to do.” Dear child of God, we are receiving this message today, not like how we have received it in the past, we are to accept the message today not as we have accepted it in the past, and we are to believe this word today, not as we have believed it in the past. Just like Prophet Isaiah prophesied, God has sent His word, “You will bear fruit in old age.” There is a reason why He is sending it and God Himself has promised that this word will not fail in your life, it will do everything that made God send it. Share this wonderful testimony with me: “Dear Daily Strength, kindly rejoice with me. I got married in January 2015 at “a very youthful age of 41”. We started fertility investigations in June same year only to discover that I only ovulate on my left ovary meanwhile the corresponding fallopian tube was blocked while the right tube was okay but the corresponding ovary was not ovulating. I followed the 21 days program committedly confessing daily that I am a fruitful vine in my husband’s house while also seeking medical solution. To God be the glory, I am now in my third month of pregnancy.”
This is a matter of faith, it is about believing in the prophetic power of the word of God. Today, we bring before God, the Ancient of Days; He whose words are yes and amen in all that concerns all members of the Daily Strength family; especially those whose ages, naturally speaking, are old to have certain blessings. At a time in 2012 we reflected on one of our sisters who had a baby boy at the age of 52 years. In the same year we carried a testimony of a sister who had her first child even when medical report said she could not be pregnant because her fallopian tube was bent. Beloved, is there anything
difficult for the Lord to do? What is that challenge confronting you? Are you thinking that time is against you. Maybe you are yet to have children and approaching menopause. Maybe you are yet to get married at 40 years of age. What is that issue disturbing your peace. Today the Holy Spirit assures you that there is nothing practically impossible for God to do. He will make you bear fruit even at old age. Hear the word of prophet Jeremiah, “But I will bless those who put their trust in me. They are like trees growing near a stream and sending out roots to the waters. They are not afraid when hot weather comes, because their leaves stay green; they have no worries when there is no rain; they keep on bearing fruit.” (Jer. 17:7-8) Like the woman in our story today, patience and trust in the ability of God to keep to His word is critical. We are calling on God who is our Provider, our Miracle Worker to change our story. Believe, God has said it, “You will bear fruit even in old age.”
