Reassurance, by Pastor Victor Olobaniyi
Text: Joshua 1:5 and 3-7.
ASSURANCE can be defined as a positive declaration intended to give confidence. In everyone’s life, at one point or the other ,there is always a time when me and you as a person needs a reassurance of something that you know before, which eventually gives you more courage to press on in life and build more confident in whatever you are doing or wants to do.
Despite the fact that Joshua was with Moses and saw the physical manifestation of the work and ways of God, there was still a time that God had to reassured him that He will be with him as He was with Moses. Joshua 1: 5 and 3:17.
We also know that, despite the fact that a wife knows that without doubt her husband loves her, she still at one point or the other wants a continual affirmation of that word I LOVE YOU and cares for you.
At this juncture, I have a good news for you, I will like to inform you that all assurance of living the best life which is God given life, is in the Bible and also all reassurance, needed to carry on in life so as to live a successful life is also in the Bible.
The word of God is infallible, it existed before the creation as we can read in John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word……. And this word will also last till eternity, because it is nothing but the truth.
It may be necessary to point to you some common issues of life and also give you some relevant bible passages that reassured us that it is all well.
Are you a student Ps119:99-100. Are you looking for a life Partner, Prov 18:22. Are you Sick, Ex 15:26,Isaiah 53:5, Gal 6:17. Are you in need Phil 4:19.Are you in Fear of death Psalm 118:17. Are your weary or frustrated, Isaiah 40:31. Are you weak, Phil 4:13. Are you facing any Spiritual jihad or somebody is contending with you, Isaiah 54:17.You may be anxious Phil 4: 6 – 7.You may be intimidated by somebody that thinks he is higher than you Lam 3:37. Or is it that you are troubled / Confused/Afraid John14:27,to mention but a few.
Brethren I must let you know that there is nothing that is confronting you that does not have its solution in the word of God.
I will encourage you to invest in reading of the word of God (the Bible) and with the help of the Holy Spirit of God you are more than conquerors in Jesus mighty name.
