A young man who had received Jesus Christ as his Lord after years of being an atheist once visited an elderly chieftain of his former association.

But this man enjoying a new life as a Christian knew where to run to: the everlasting God who has promised His best to those who trust Him. Through His servant Joel, the Lord arrays an assembly of blessings for men and women of all ages who would put their trust in Him.

The Lord’s promises were not to be fulfilled in Joel’s day only. God, being the Lord for all ages, cast His sights to the distant future and beyond to capture our age to reach to when “the terrible day of the LORD [would] come.” The mercy of heaven will still suffice then because He speaks of pouring His Spirit upon all flesh to enable young believers receive visions like prophets of old.

Unbelievers cannot enjoy these precious blessings as a result of their rebellion. To be partakers of these blessings, they must repent and forsake their sins because the invitation has an expiry date, when “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood.”

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The God of all ages can also sail His people through all storms
