You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfilment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” – Luke 1:45

In 2 Kings 6:24 we read that Ben-Hadad king of Syria gathered all his army and went up and besieged Samaria. So there was a great famine in Samaria. Days got so worse that a lady came to the king saying that she had eaten her son along with another woman. 

With so much anger the King had sent a man to Elisha to ask him why he has to wait for the Lord in such kind of adverse situation. The king had lost all his hope. At that time God’s word came through Elisha saying “‘Tomorrow about this time a seah of fine flour shall be sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, at the gate of Samaria.’” (2 Kings 7:1)

There was an officer who was standing nearby heard what God said and answered Elisha that it will not be possible even if God make windows in heaven. He could not believe the word of God. 

But as we read further we can understand that the very next day the Lord has caused the army of the Syrians to hear the noise of chariots, horses and great army so that they had fled immediately. 

Within a day God had changed the situation upside down as He had promised through Elisha. The officer who doubted God’s word saw the fulfilment of that but yet he died without enjoying the blessing that God has provided. 

The people of Samaria went out and plundered the tents of Syrians. Everyone in Samaria saw the fulfilment of God’s word.

My eldest brother could not get a job when he completed his engineering degree long back. The first job he got was for a salary of Rs.2000 per month. He struggled a lot with that salary but yet he had kept his trust upon God. My parents prayed a lot and God promised that He will raise him up to higher positions. When he heard that it was far beyond his understanding. 

After few years God gave him a job in another city. My brother got a good salary this time and he was so happy about it. One day God spoke to him through a servant of God that He will increase his salary double fold. As my brother was getting a good salary which was enough for him and his family he was happy about his life but as God promised He gave him a job in a big company and now he was getting a salary exactly double the salary he got from his previous job.

My dear young friends, you might be going through poverty or famine of troubled situation. Have faith in the promise given by God to Him. Jesus Christ will fulfil all that He has promised you. The people of Samaria thought that they will not live for another day. But God promised them that He will change the situation and they will live. Indeed God fulfilled His promise the very next day. He will do that in your life. You will be blessed as God promised to you. Do not get discouraged about your present life situation. 

He might have promised so many things to you in the beginning of this year but till now you might not have seen any signs of fulfilment. Do not fear. He who has promised you will definitely fulfil His promises in your life. Jesus Christ will fight for you and He will bless you richly. You will see the fulfilment of God’s promises in your life and you will enjoy the blessings that He is going to give you.
