You will own honor upon honor

My dear friend, the promise verse for today is taken from Zephaniah 3:20 “I will give you honour and praise.” What a beautiful promise from God! The Lord promises to give you honour and praise in all that you do, this month. So, be of good cheer! 

This was the day when Karunya University was established almost forty years back. Now, this beautiful and blessed campus has been a blessing to several thousand students, teachers and non-teaching staff. But this blessing came after so many troubles and disappointments. Recently, Karunya University received the highest grade of getting A++ in the NAAC Accreditation. What an honour it is for Karunya! The Lord has indeed blessed the University and has given it so much honour and praise. But, as I said earlier, this blessing did not come directly. It came after many troubles. We had to go through a lot of shame, loss and disrespect. But the Lord finally gave us honour and praise as we patiently endured these afflictions. He did not let us down. In the same way, the Lord will never let you down. 

Are you thinking that your life has been full of shame? Is everyone that you trust putting you down? Are you frustrated saying whatever you do has been a failure? Do you feel like your hard work is going in vain? Take heart, my friend! The Lord promises you, from today, He will give you honour and praise. We read in Romans 12:12, “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.” Accordingly, because you have been so patient all these years enduring the afflictions, He promises to honour you today. Do not be disheartened!


Lord Jesus, I pray for Your blessings to come upon my life. Lord, I thank You for giving me the strength to endure every affliction patiently. I know You are the Lord who rewards Your children. Thank you, Lord, for promising me that You will give me honour and praise. I believe that You will turn around my situation and bless all that I do. Lord, let the people know that I belong to You; that I am Your precious child. Lord, bless the work of my hands and let me receive a reward for all my hard work and sacrifice. Bless me and honour me, Father. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
