A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [27/07/2016]
Topic: You Can Trade It
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28. Read: Matt 11:28-30
Trade by barter is a concept in business world where one exchanges what he/she has in place of what he/she needs. For instance, if one has yam but needs beans, such person can exchange his yam from someone that has the beans he needs. Which means, one has traded what he has for what he actually needed. Invariably, in God's Kingdom, trade by barter is one way or the concept He accepts or adopts for the betterment of His children. The good news about this concept in God's Kingdom is that you can trade anything you don't want for what you actually need.
For example, if anything is giving you sorrow and sadness, you can trade it for His joy unspeakable full of glory. 1 Pt 1:8. You can trade your weakness for His strength. Neh 8:10, 2 Cor 12:8-10, Isa 40:28-31. You can as well trade your worries for His peace. Jn 14:27, Mk 4:34, Phil 4:6-8. For everything that troubles you, there's a replacement in God's Kingdom which is why He made available to you the power of choice to either trade it with Him or continue to suffer it. You can also trade your battered marriage for a better one. You can trade your poverty for His prosperity, your sickness for His divine healing, your limited life for His unlimited life. You can trade your lack for His abundance. The widow of Zarephath traded her lack with God, she received the abundance of God's supply that sustained her family till death. Haven't said the above, you can trade your load of sin for His Salvation. There's nothing in your life too filthy to be traded with God because of His mercy, grace and love. You can trade it all with your Maker.
* whatever you go to Him to trade for what you actually need will be rapidly delivered to you in Jesus Name.
