St. Michael – You Have Been Called to Trust in the Highest Power to Provide for All Your Utility Needs

Dear one, it is challenging to find yourself when in the dark. For most people, they have been existing without knowing the light, or the right path to follow.

But just as easily as flicking a switch that is powered by electricity, today I am calling upon you to turn on the lights and immerse yourself in the power of God who is the provider of the universe.

Trusting in God as Your Divine Provider

Have you ever made plans that you were confident would actualize? What do you do when your plans fail yet you have capitalized on them? As human beings, you are prone to trusting in your ability to make things work out your way. However, I ,Saint Michael, come to you today to let you know that God has got your back.

Beloved, I know that it can be hard to cling unto your faith in difficult moments. Whenever you are facing challenges, you may be quick to question God and blame Him for the calamities in your life. 

Can you trust in God to provide for you even when nothing seems to make sense? I know your human nature makes you prone to making mistakes but when God is on your side, who can be against you?

As your Saint, I desire that you may begin to put your trust in God and let him provide for you. He is the source of all joy and not even once will he ever fail you.

There is Power in the Name of Jesus

Luke 10:19 states that; “Behold, I give you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”

Today I am challenging you to begin trusting in the power of God because you have all the reasons to. You have been given the name of Jesus as a weapon to help you navigate through life efficiently and stay safe. Through the death of Jesus on the cross, you have been sanctified and given the power to lead a life free from guilt or sin.

Dear one, rejoice and be happy that you have been given the privilege to know God. There are millions of people out there in the world who have no idea about the gospel and they live a hopeless life. As your saint, I am revealing to you today that the secret to accessing the graces of God is by preaching his word. Make it your mission to tell people about God and watch how he will enrich you and make your life perfect through his grace. By his power, he will perform miracles in your life and you will be filled with joy.

Turning on Your Spiritual Electricity 

When a person is in the dark, they can easily trip and fall which may inflict injuries on them and cause harm. I am urging you to turn the socket on and allow your spiritual electricity to control the occurrences of your life. 

Perhaps you are wondering how…

Trust the word of God, he will never fail you

Hebrews 4:12 states, “the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” 

The bible is not just an ordinary book since it contains the message of God. This explains why you may read a chapter today and when you read it next week, it feels as if the message is fresh. Through the bible, God communicates with you and you also get to learn more about what he wants you to do in life. 

Pray genuinely, that He sees your heart

There are people who complain that they are always praying yet God does not answer their prayers. They get discouraged because they feel that God is unfair to them.

Today I am revealing to you that prayer is the special contact with God. When praying you should focus on appeasing the heavens and reaching out to God. The greatest secret about praying is that you should invoke the power of the holy spirit who will intercede for you even in moments you have no words to say.

Be the Light

Matthew 5: 14-16 indicates that, “you are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Men do not light a candle and put it under a bowl, but on a candlestick for it gives light unto all those in the house.” 

As your saint, I am advising you to lead a life that reflects God. Do not be corrupted by the ways of the world but choose to be different. When people look at you, may they find and feel the goodness of God in you. 

Let us Pray

“Dear God, I acknowledge that you are the all-powerful God. I exalt your name and thank you for your continuous providence in our lives. I pray that you may give me the grace to be the light in the life of other people. St. Michael the Archangel, guide my path and defend me from the attempts of my foes. Deliver me from the snares of evil, and guide my heart to always exclaim God's truth and love in the world. Amen.”
