Joel 2:27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
What wonderful promises God gave His people. There are three of them. Though this was written to Israel I pray that God do this in my life and in the life of our church.
First, they would know that God was in their midst. I want to know that God is at work. I want to see it and I want others to see God and His hand moving in our church. I hope you pray for that on a regular basis.
Second, they would know that God is our Lord and He is our God. There is only one God. We must know and worship Him. We must serve Him. We must be certain that all we do is for His honor and glory. We can have no other God and no other purpose.
Thirdly, God will always work in our lives and we will be shamed. He will be who He says He is. We do not have to worry about Him doing all that He has said that He will. You do not have to be embarrassed that you believe God and serve Him.
Pray that God will work in us these three truths that He worked in Israel.
