“Today is thanksgiving Tuesday, it is time to thank God for all you have and all you are.” It was Dj Moz again. His incredible choice of words as he preaches is enough to dig into your soul. It is enough to drive the inner voice that once told you as a kid not to steal sugar because you will burn in eternal fire.
He talks of how blessed we are, of how rich we are even though we think we are not. He puts me to ponder when he says that by just the fact we have the roof on our heads we are more than blessed. This strikes a hive of thoughts that ran in me when I saw a disabled mother and child singing the song, ‘Hakuna Mungu’ by Tumaini just before entering the Bible Study hall.
I remembered of the times that I had blamed God for every occurrence in my life, of all the bitterness and deals gone wrong. Moz went on and said that we should love and appreciate every task we do in life, no matter how much we hate and dislike it because we are doing it for God not for man.
Everything works for the glory of the Lord be it good or bad and God will always manifests in our lives in ways we cannot fathom and not necessarily in the ways we want. My thoughts went back to the lone mother and child in the street who teaches her beautiful child to sing a worship song, though they seem hopeless, though struck down by thoughts of despair and with no roof under their heads.
I was amazed by how they still continued singing the hymns even way long after the Bible Study was done. I was freezing in cold. I was shivering and coughing but this disabled mother on the streets held her child close and tight swinging back and forth as she sang beautiful Christian songs bracing the cold.
Moz quotes Psalms 65:1-7 that says
1 Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come before him with thanksgiving
and extol him with music and song.
3 For the Lord is the great God,
the great King above all gods.
4 In his hand are the depths of the earth,
and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5 The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands formed the dry land.
6 Come, let us bow down in worship,
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
7 for he is our God
and we are the people of his pasture,
the flock under his care.
Today, if only you would hear his voice,
He emphasizes in verse 2 that says that we should come to Him with thanksgiving. He says that our finite minds cannot comprehend God’s ideas. He continues and says that as believers it’s so easy to take God for granted and there is no way we can tell God that we have been too good to Him that we rightfully deserve what makes life. He talks of how he couldn’t speak to his ailing father for 3 years as he was diagnosed with the Parkison’s disease. He talks of how he passed away even after vehemently praying for him. He affirms that he believes he went to a better place as he was a firm believer and he rested from his pain.
Brethren, don’t take for granted what God is doing for us, through us and in us. Let us honor God faithfully no matter the situation and strive to walk in his ways.
It would be much better to see you join us for where two or three are gathered God will always be in the midst. Welcome to Kkrew Bible Study held at Nairobi Cinema every Tuesday as from 5.30pm
