Apostle Grace Lubega
Lamentations 3:22-23(KJV); It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
Astronomy reveals to us that stars are constantly moving.
They are not fixed in space but rather are orbiting in a nearly circular path around the center of the galaxy. This of course is by design. God, after all, was very deliberate in how He strategically created every facet of the universe.
This constant motion of the stars is a message to us as children of the Most High. In various portions of scripture, He alludes to us as stars.
In Genesis 22:17, He tells Abraham that He will multiply His offspring as the stars of heaven. When Christ was born, His star appeared in the sky (Matthew 2:2).
In a battle against Sisera in Judges 5:20, the Bible says, “From heaven the stars fought, from their courses they fought against Sisera.”
The lesson herein is that as a star, you are always in motion. Never be deceived into thinking that at the end of any particular day, you made no progress.
Are you feeling stuck? Do you imagine that you are stranded in the quick sands of regression? Do you feel trapped in the murky waters of an endless cycle of poverty or pain?
Elevate your thinking. He says that His mercies are new every morning. This means that with each rising of the sun, He pushes you forward to another level. He advances your cause to the next step.
No, don’t throw in the towel because you do not see much change. Don’t give up on ministry, on your career, on your marriage or on that dream you have worked at for so long.
Like the stars are always on the move, have the blessed conviction that you are advancing every day in whatsoever you do.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Like the stars are always on the move, have the blessed conviction that you are advancing every day in whatsoever you do.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I know and understand that I can never be stuck. The Bible says that of your government, there is constant increase. I refuse any testimony of stagnation because it is not my portion. I am moving forward, upward and upward only. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
