TODAY’S MEDITATION – The day of death is better than the day of birth (Ecclesiastes 7:1)

There are times in life we may wonder where is God. Going through this time right now with my family, because 10 days ago I lost the father of my children and this very morning, my mother found my brother lying dead near his bed, as if he was trying to run away from death.
The Bible says: “A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death better than the day of birth”. Yes, death can come as a thief in the night… My friends, let’s ensure we are ready every day, anytime in case it is our turn. This is a message to encourage you to be strong in the Lord Jesus: yesterday, after our Bible Study, I told the church that I feel in my spirit that I need to refocus on Jesus because for the last 10 days I have been too much ‘distracted’ (that is the word I used) with the death of the father of my children. So I said I was going to get up at 3:00 am and spend time with Jesus.
Yes, Jesus knew that today was going to be very difficult, so through His Holy Spirit, he sent me a message to be with him to draw the strength at His well. You see, I should be feeling deeply sad, deeply down, deeply out or my mind or asking Him, why now after only 10 days… but no! I literally feel at peace. If I say there is joy in my heart despite this, people might misinterpret what I mean… but yes, there is a deep joy in knowing that Jesus loves me and intercedes for me day and night, because 2 weeks before the death of the father of my children, my son dreamed of his father’s death and we began to be prepared and knowing that that day was coming with pain, Jesus set us apart to comfort us before the need for comfort comes. This is the God we serve! He is alive. Everything works for the good of those who love Him. Jesus, I love you. Let us all be encouraged. Stay blessed in Jesus’ name…
