Isaiah 55 : 1-2

Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost. Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labour on what does not satisfy? Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare.

God is not unjust!

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. Hebrews 6:10-12.

There is an important point which i would want you to take away from today's message . Even if the rest does not sink in, please make sure you keep this point in a place where you can easily access it for meditational purposes, it is the truth about God revealed by the scripture which boldly declares..'God is not unjust!'.

You see when we talk about the faithfulness of God we must allow this point to guide our understanding of what it means for God to be faithful. You see the combination of God's faithfulness and the revealation that he is a just God, is a powerful one, such that it should make the righteous shout in jubilation with renewed hope and vigour. While in the same breadth it should cause the unrighteous to shudder at the prospect of meeting with the God so described.

You see sometimes we come to a place in our walk of faith where it appears as if we have been abandoned and our quest have all been in vain, especially periods of unrelenting crisis, prolonged expectations that appear to be fading into distant memory. I am talking of moments when you have prayed yourself hoarse, confessed the word until you can hear it in your head, yet nothing seems to be happening.

You have claimed all the promises in the scripture until there is none left to claim, i am talking of the moment when prayers now feel like chewing grains of sand in the mouth and cynic comments now begins to creep in where words of confession and hope once used to be....i am talking of that place where the walk of faith sometimes dumps a man, a place where as a believer you are just hanging in there barely..wondering just how much time is left before you call it quit.
If you are in this zone, then you need to look at today's point and hold on to it because it is absolutely true about God, he is not unjust and in his faithfulness, he will surely come good for you.

When he will do this? I dont know, but the scripture instructs that we should hold on to the end. But i cannot hold on much longer you may rightly say in the light of what you have gone through,...... Then ask for more grace, i say this because grace is what tides a man over until such experiences the faithfulness and fairness of God, there is enough in the power of grace to ensure that no man who is waiting on the Lord misses out ..for he says i am coming.

But how am i sure he will meet my expectations? Because as the scripture says, God is not unfair.....he will not forget all that you have done...and if i may add, he wont be indebted to any man.

1 Peter 1:18-19
“For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.”
