Morning with Ebenezer


Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.

1 Timothy 5:1-2 NLT

Life is always changing; people come and go in our lives. Some bring forth positive effects and other come with their negativity. If you will be quickly asked what kind of people you want in your life, you will answer without hesitation the positive ones; but its fun that sometimes God allows even the negative ones to come.

I came to understand that all of these people come for a purpose; there are some things that you can't learn in life without meeting those negative ones. It may happen that you have been hurt by the people who came in your life every now and then. You have been having what so called bad luck with people who come close to you.

There are some women who find themselves meeting wrong men every day. Every man they get involved with in life appears to have some issues that they won't be able to tolerate. It is the same to some men who keep on getting some women who are not in their preferences list. This problem doesn't face secular people only but it also faces Christians; they sometimes don't understand how in the world the good Lord will continue permitting them to meet such kind of people.

This morning, I just want to encourage you to submit your relationships to the Lord. Some people think that we need to go to ask the Lord for big things: like to heal our loved ones from certain diseases, financial miracles and protection over power of darkness. They look at God who created heaven and earth and they admit He is the awesome God; so He can't be dealing with things like relationships.

I came to realize that although our God is awesome, and He is magnificent in wisdom; but still He cares for us personally. He cares your struggle on the side of relationships; He sees your tears and He is willing to help you if you will ask Him today. Ask God to bring people who will be used to lift you up in life and help you to discover the unknown potential in you; ask Him to help you live with wisdom whenever you encounter negative people in life and to use you to impart positivity in them.

****Morning Prayer****

Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for your word. Lord I'm asking that You may help me in my relationships, help me to understand those who need my understanding. Help me to love those who need my love and help me to respect each one according to your word. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
