In a school there was a chaos everywhere and the students didn't obey school rules and regulations. Then one day a new teacher entered the school, he was baffled at the state of lawlessness in the school. So, he decided on a plan and called all the students together.
"Now" the teacher began, "I want you all to set rules and the punishment anyone who breaks the rules will receive" The students were happy; they set the rules and punishment for breaking it. Surprisingly, all the students obeyed the rules until one fateful Monday morning when a boy's lunch disappeared.
Investigations were carried out and they found out that it was one skinny boy called ‘David’ in the class that ate the food. As set by the students; the punishment for the theft was twelve strokes of cane on the bare back.
The teacher ordered the boy to remove his jacket, when he did, everyone saw how skinny he was. The boy broke down in tears and cried, "Please, forgive me, I am from a poor home, i haven't eaten for 2 days now, i don't have parent, my guardian are poor. I am sorry, I am sorry please forgive me"
Everyone was sympathetic but the rule had been broken, so the punishment needed to be meted out. Then the teacher asked "Who will act as a substitute for him or should i go ahead and flog him.
Suddenly the boy whose food was eaten arose, came-fort and said he would act as a substitute and he was flogged. Everyone was in tears and the skinny boy came and thanked the big boy and said "You helped me even though I stole from you, Thank You" (Let Stop Here].
Do you know that Jesus Christ is your substitute every time you commit sin and your reason to be thankful? Although, worldliness is what makes sin look normal in any age and righteousness seem weird but whenever you acknowledge your mistakes, look up to heaven and say "Father, I have sin against you. Please father forgives me" Afterward; bury your shame and pride by giving him thanks; at least for not given you unto reprobate mind or sealing-off your conscience; definitely reconciliation will be certain.
In this act; God will defend the death of his son Jesus Christ by the act of forgiveness because he substitute your guilt, sorrow, pains and took your punishment. Have you thanked him today, just as that skinny little boy thanked the big boy? If not; then what are you waiting for?
Please don't see yourself as been righteous because if God shall mark iniquity; my beloved you can't escape because all the days of a man is full of temptations. Psalm 130:3 If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?

- What To Do In Time Of Distress?
In your circumstance, however painful it might be but is only the path that God is using to reveal more of himself to you. Your troubles cannot defeat you. They may appear to be taking you down but actually they are helping you to rise above them.
You are made stronger for having gone through them. Nothing can be taken from you without God’s permission. It is His to give and His to take. But remember, no good will God withhold from those who love him. (Psalm 84:11),
My beloved one in Christ, what God removes from your life is part of his plan to give you so much more. You have to learn to trust him. You must stand in faith no matter how great the storm that overwhelms your life
The Lord brings the tide in and he takes it out. He controls the wind and the rain. The sun rises at his command. He certainly can perfect his purpose for your life and provide for what you need. Don’t let your weariness make you think that God does not care when your prayers seem unanswered. His mercy and love are with you even now.
He knows what he is doing in your life. He sees your tears and he holds them in a bottle. He does not forget your name or where you are. He is the God of all possibility and ultimately all things must bow to his will for your life. The days are growing short and evil is abounding.
Take joy knowing that even through the tempest, the hand of God is in full control. He will never fail you nor will he let anything in this world destroy. Jesus died to give you peace no matter what happens here. Even the death of a loved one cannot impede the purpose he has for you.
He knew your name long before the foundation of the earth. Trust that even in death that God will be with you. That is the hope that separates believers from the rest of the world because Jesus has paid the price for your sin, condemnation and has given you salvation which you must glory upon and always be thankful.
