Dearly beloved, As you walk with Jesus, you are a blessed man/a blessed woman! Isn’t it? When you walk with Jesus you are happy, joyful, and it is always a rejoicing experience. Sometimes, there comes gloominess. When there’s a burden troubling your heart, As though the light which was shining brightly, gets dimmer, likewise our spiritual life get faded. It seems as if it is burning brightly, but suddenly the it fades away. It had happened to you, right? These circumstances will happen sometimes in our lives. Do you know what Jesus does? Do you know what is said in Matthew 12:20? What is the character of our God? ‘A bruised reed He will not break, and smoking flax He will not quench.’ ‘…And smoking flax – will not quench it thinking that it will not be of use anymore. But He will ignite it and let it burn more brightly again!’ God would pour the suitable oil to it and make it burn brightly. Is your life fading away like that? ‘Your prayer life, your faith, your spiritual strength’, Is it getting diminished day by day? Does it seem like it is all going to end soon? Are you weary? God will not forsake you! He’ll ignite you, pour oil into it and make it burn more brightly again! ‘He will not quench the smoking flax!’ He will never say that it is not going to be of any use. He loves you too. He will ignite you also and make you shine more brightly. Sometimes, because of a certain sin or a weakness or an inadequacy, You maybe losing your light in your spiritual life day by day. May be you are thinking that it is all over. But Jesus loves you! He is concerned about you. He will not let your flame quench. He will ignite you again. God says, ‘My son/My daughter, may be you’ve gone too far from Me and you kept losing your light. but I’m still concerned about you. I will not forsake you; I will not forget you nor despise you. Come again; come back to my presence!’ Will you ask God now saying, ‘God, my flame is fading away, I’ve become useless, please forgive me and make me shine brighter again?’ Since God loves you, He will make you shine again! [PRAYER]: “Father, please look at this son/daughter who says, ‘Father, my flame is fading away. I’m losing my light. I lost strength in my spiritual life’. Look at this children who are crying like this. God, You are the one who will not quench the smoking flax, but shall ignite it and make it shine brighter. Please revive this son/this daughter. Make them shine! Let all the weariness in their heart vanish. Let all the worries disappear! Let there be a change in their spiritual lives from this minute! In Jesus name I pray, Father!” Amen. Amen.
