GOD OF THE 11TH HOUR
MAIN TEXT: Psalms 25:15
“My eyes are ever towards the Lord, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net”.
These things He said, and after that He said to them, “Our friend Lazarus sleeps, but I go that I may wake him up”. John11:11
It’s heart breaking especially when you have placed your hope and trust in God, and as you constantly read the calendar and watch the hand of clock pushing to the last minute, just like Peter and his colleagues, you might think that it’s over and ready to wash your net and give up. It might interest you to note that God loves surprise endings. He delights in unexpected plot twist that leave you saying “I didn’t see that one coming”.
The 11th hour is a statement that refers to something happening at an unexpected time when all seem to have ended as 11 is the last hour on a clock cycle. The story of the fishermen (Peter and his colleagues)is a typical example of this 11th hour. Jesus showed up in their case when all hope of catching fish was lost. Sometimes we do not see God because we give up before God’s time.
Beloved, remember that the God of 11th hour is still and always at work. It could be that you need emergency breakthrough to compliment any already challenging year, cheer up and don’t be discouraged. Only keep you r eyes on the Lord according to our reading today in Psalms 25:15. God is an expert in doing amazing things irrespective of season and circumstances. He is ready to give you 11th hour miracle that will swallow the pains and failures of past years.
GOD IS NEVER LATE
