Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book of Jeremiah 31:16, “Thus says the LORD: “Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears; For your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD, And they shall come back from the land of the enemy.”
From the above context we understand about what God says, to Rachel who had the impact of a Jewish Mother. Actually in the above passage Prophet Jeremiah tells or speaks, about the nation of Israel, being taken into exile, and a voice was heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping, Rachel was the mother of Joseph and Benjamin, who became two of twelve tribes of Israel. So when Israel went into exile, she cried for her children, she refused to be comforted, for her children who were absent.
Rachel’s work had been that of bearing and bringing up children, and by their death she was deprived of the joy for which she had laboured: Hence the Lord, says to the Mother of Israel, “Refrain your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears, because, though sorrow on such an occasion may be lawfully right, yet it ought to be controlled, and attention should be given to those things which may serve to be of more importance and when the direction comes from the Lord himself; then you need to stop mourning, and wipe your wet eyes. For your work shall be rewarded, says the Lord; in bearing your children, and bringing them into the world, and expressing such an affectionate and tender concern for them; taking the trouble of bearing and bringing them into the world, and nursing them until the time they did live. You should not consider this as fruitless, or meaningless, instead you should see the future of it. You should realize that all this was not in vain, but be assured that your hard labour will be rewarded.
Many of you, who are reading this message, especially sisters, are crying for your children. You have done a good work in bearing your children, and bringing them into the world, and expressing such an affectionate and tender concern for them. It is certain that you have taken great pains in rearing your children, educating them, caring and attending to them when ever, they were in need of your help, And securing them with a good job, and even you might have settled them in marriage, You should not consider this as fruitless, or meaningless, instead you should see the future of it. You should realize that all this was done not in vain, but be assured that your hard labour will be rewarded. Your descendants will inherit the nations, and make the desolate cities inhabited. Your sons may be as plants grown up in their youth, and your daughters may be as pillars sculptured in palace style. Your Children will rise up and shall call you blessed. May the Lord bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for revealing the motherly nature of Rachel. Teach us also to weep and pray for the welfare of our children. May we learn from her to bear with our children in times of affliction. Never to hurt their feelings but handle them gently and without any inhibition or partiality.
In Jesus name we pray.
God Gives Wisdom
Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Ecclesiastes 2:26, “For God Gives wisdom and knowledge and joy to a man who is good in His sight.”
From the above context we learn that God gives to a man that is good in his sight, wisdom, knowledge and joy. No man is good, or naturally so, but evil, very evil, as all the descendants of Adam are. There are some that are good in their own eyes, and in the sight of others, and yet not truly good. Some are really good, in the sight of God, who watches their heart, and knows what is in man; who are both inwardly, and outwardly good at heart, or who have clean hearts, new and right spirits created in them; who have a good work of grace upon their hearts, who have the good Spirit of God in them, in whose heart Christ dwells by faith; and who have the good word of Christ dwelling in them, and who, in one word, are born again, renewed in the spirit of their minds, and live by faith on Jesus Christ. God gives to those who are truly good; pleasure, riches, power, and authority: “to the man, whose works are right before God, he gives wisdom and knowledge in this world, and joy with the righteous in the world to come;”
Are you suffering because your children don’t fare well in their studies or in their career because of lack of wisdom. You are worried as they have lost their future because of poor wisdom, and understanding. They are not very brilliant or intelligent. But God is uprooting every force of mental illness in your children, and setting them free from the evil spirit that has taken hold of them. That is the reason they have gone down in to depression. Some children are caught up in darkness because of taking sleeping pills, and drugs. As a result they tend to be lazy and sickly and are never smart or active. God is delivering such children from depression and is giving them a ray of hope. He will bring them out of darkness and will set them into the marvellous Light. That they may enjoy the goodness that God has bestowed upon them like other smart children.
God is going to deliver all those children who are bound by chains, because of mental disorder. Just as God delivered the Legion, who was bound by unclean spirit, and often hurt himself, God is going to liberate your children too. Some children do not sleep well at night. They suffer from some mental disturbance, hence they keep moving about in the room without sleeping. At times they will even keep talking to themselves. And their behaviour might cause panic to you parents. As a result you are deeply distressed because of your children. You are thinking in your mind, when all this will come to an end. When will my children live happily, when will I see any progress in their life? The Bible says, “If any of you lacks wisdom let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally, and without reproach and it will be given to him.”
Some children suddenly wake up at night screaming loudly because of fear or due to bad dreams. Such children will calm down and sleep well because God is about to deliver them right now. God sees your broken heart and adheres to your cry. Some youngsters feel they are unable to satisfy the expectation of their employers because of their poor knowledge and wisdom. Some cry over their failures, as they end up in negative thoughts. They think they will always remain as failures and will never be successful in their life. But God is placing positive attitude in their mind today itself, that they may regain stability in life. God will help them to work well with sharp wisdom and good understanding that they will excel more than their expectation. And those officials who put them to shame at work spot will applaud them and make their name great before their co workers. God will bless them with name and fame. And they shall be successful in all the works of their hand. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. We thank You Lord for your care and concern over our children. Lord we pray that You will heal them of their depression and rescue them from the darkness into which they seem to be immersed. Bring them to light and help them to see better days in life.
In Jesus name we pray,
Jesus Does Wonders
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book ofJob: 9:10 “He does great things past finding out, Yes, wonders without numbers.”
From the above context we learn that our God does wonders that cannot be numbered. 2000 years ago while Jesus was on this earth He performed many miracles. People flocked behind him wherever He went, just to see His miracles. He caused the blind to see and the deaf to hear. He raised Lazarus from the dead, He healed the blind man who was at the Siloam pool and healed the woman with infirmity for eighteen years. He healed the daughter of Jairus’” and also healed the demon possessed young man who often fell into the fire and hurt himself. Jesus healed the man who was paralysed for thirty eight years. He fed five thousand people with five loaves and two fishes. He restored the sight of Bartimaeus, who cried out to the Lord saying “Jesus Son of David have mercy on me. He cried aloud and Jesus stood there for a while and performed a miracle for him. And he received his sight. Thus our God was known as a wonder working God. He was a Miracle Maker.
During his days upon this earth, Jesus was invited to a Marriage at Cana. His mother and his disciples were also invited to the wedding. Unfortunately the wine was running out and there was no more wine to be served. The wine in those days was considered as a prestigious drink by the Jews. If the Lord of the house failed to offer wine at the wedding party it would be considered a shame. Mary the mother of Jesus knew that the wine in the wedding house was getting over. She knew that it wasn’t wise to inform the bride or the bridegroom’s family; she straightaway informed the matter to Jesus. This was an important issue as far as the wedding was considered. She knew that only Jesus could solve the problem immediately. Only Jesus could give instant relief in such a situation, and none other could do anything about it.
Mary the mother of Jesus submitted the matter to Jesus and also instructed the servants to do what Jesus commanded them to do. When the appointed time came Jesus performed a miracle, and soon all the need in the wedding house was met by Jesus. Now there were six stone water jars, there for Jewish ceremonial washings. Since the wine ran out, Jesus told them, “Fill the jars with water.” So they filled them to the brim. He commanded the disciples to fill the empty jars with fresh water. And then He asked them to draw the water and serve the guests. When the guests served the water it was turned to sweet and tasty wine. It was so tasty that the Master of the Feast did not know from where it came. And all the guests inquired him how he had stored the tasty wine to be served till the end of the Feast.
Dearly Beloved, what is the problem that is troubling you? Submit your problem to the Lord Jesus Christ. May be you approached many people regarding your problem with a hope that they will solve your problem. But you are disappointed. You never got a proper solution to your problem. Those whom you approached have put you to shame. Only Jesus can help and perform an instant miracle while you are in trouble. So in times of such difficult situation, learn to trust in Jesus. Put your confidence in Him. Surrender your problem to Jesus. That is what even Job did in his life, when he went through affliction. He held on to God. He said, “I will surrender my problem to the Lord for He will do great and unsearchable things. He will do wonders beyond numbers.”And this is what Mary did. She submitted the problem to the Lord. And through His miracle He did great and marvellous things.
God is speaking prophetically to you through this message that God will intervene and solve all your problem. In which ever problem you are caught up in, that problem will be solved instantly, provided you submit your problem to the Lord Jesus Christ. Acknowledge your ways unto the Lord and He will direct your steps. God is going to perform a wonder in your life. All the people would look at you in surprise and inquire as to how this miracle happened in your life. And you can tell them that there is nothing impossible for the Lord to do. And it was God who performed the miracle in your life. May the Lord reveal to you His great power and strength, by doing a miracle for you. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord for teaching us to depend upon the Lord when we go through tribulation. Help us to put our confidence in God, and surrender our problem to You. May we learn to depend upon You. Thank You Lord for changing the water into wine, and thus bring about a marvellous change at the wedding house. You filled the emptiness of that house with the tasty wine. Likewise change our sorrow into joy and help us to see greater days in our life.
In Jesus name we pray,
SEEK GOD & COMMIT YOUR WAYS
I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today, is from the book Job : 5:8,9 “But as for me I would seek God and to God I would commit my cause. Who does great things, and unsearchable, marvellous things without number.”
From the above context we learn that God expects us to commit ourselves wholly in the hand of God when we go through trials and tribulation. And this is what Job did in his life. We see how, when Job reached the peak of his sufferings, says, “Then I will submit myself, to God.”And through his testimony we learn a good lesson from this part of the scripture. God has said, “In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”
As long as we exist in this world, there will be problems, trials, and temptations, in your life. Sometimes these problems can overwhelm and increase to a greater level and cause misery in your life. In that situation God asks you to submit yourselves, and your problems to the Lord. Therefore just surrender, your cases however big they might be, into the hands of God. We see that Job patiently waited on the Lord, during the time of his tribulation. The scripture says, Job spoke very maturely and wisely. For this is the time that the children of God should guard their tongue. And we need to guard our faith at this period of time when we go through affliction. We need to walk trusting in the Lord all the time. Like Job you should lean on the Lord during the time of your tribulation.
In the midst of trouble Job depended upon the Lord his God. That is why even when his wife rebuked him and said, ” Curse God and die.”He said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women, speaks. Shall we indeed accept, good from God, and shall we not, accept adversity. “In spite of all his misery and woe, Job did, not sin with his lips, or charge God with wrong. Because he fully knew that after the trial period, he will see good days, of prosperity and joy. He knew well that an end will come to all his problems. That is why he says, “I will wait all the days, of my hard service, till my change comes.”He was very confident that his period of trial and tribulation will change. He knew that even if God causes wounds, He will surely bind his wounds.
Many of you who are reading this message may have been wounded, by others. They may be your neighbours, relatives or your own siblings or your children. Satan often attacks you through these people. It is hard to trace your foe or identify the reason for their cruel dealings with you. You might have endured unknowingly all the sufferings. Some might have stabbed you at the back. You might have done much good to them but they might have caused severe damage to you. You may have been ridiculed, criticised, betrayed or mocked by many people. You might have become the song and the proverb of the people. You have become sick of your life. Today God is saying, “Surrender your problems to Me.”Surrender your debts to Me no matter how great/big, it might be. Hand over all your cases to Me. Surrender your children unto Me. I will solve all your problems. I will help you. Increase your faith in God when you go through trials and temptation. Lean on God at all times. Then He will deliver you and also rescue you from all your troubles. May the Lord help you to walk in wisdom and fear of the Lord and help you to submit your problems unto the Lord. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for teaching us through the life of Job, to wait upon the Lord and to surrender all our problems to Him. May we be like Job in character. Teach us not to react foolishly but to deal wisely in all circumstances. No matter how hard the situation might be but help us to rely on the Lord, during the time of affliction. Help us to depend upon God for all our needs.
In Jesus name we pray.
You Shall Be A Threshing Sledge.
I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Isaiah 41:15,16 , “I will make you into a new threshing sledge, with sharp teeth. You shall thresh the Mountains, and beat them, small. And make the hills like chaff. You Shall Rejoice in the Lord. And glory in the Holy one of Israel.”
From the above context we come to understand that God wants to make you into a new threshing sledge in this New Year. For God says, “I will make you into a new threshing sledge, with sharp teeth. You will be a sharp instrument that can drill the mountains and crush them into dust.
May be in the past you might have been a dull and blunt instrument, with sharp less edges that cannot drill the mountain or the hill. You were not a useful instrument all this while. And in such a situation you cannot be of much benefit to yourself or to the society. God knows your strength and your weakness. Your intelligence and wisdom, has become blunt due to various reasons. And He is aware of all the problems and tribulations that you need to face while you are in this world. God does not wish that you be passive or inactive, but he wants to prepare you for a better task. God does not want you to be in a blunt or useless manner.
God wants to rebuild that blunt life of yours into a useful and sharp instrument, so that you may be capable of solving all the problems that rises in your life. For He says, In this world you will have tribulation and trials and you need the strength to face these problems. God knows that your wisdom and knowledge is not enough to help you face your problems. That is why in the very beginning of this verse God says, “I shall make you into a sharp instrument, to thresh the mountains, and beat them small. We are living in a world full of revenge, a world of competition, trials and jealousy. And if you need to live a victorious life, in this world, then you need a sharp edged instrument, which means you, need to have sharp wisdom.
In a deceptive world, where all people, cannot be trusted, you need to be wise, to deal with them. You need sharpness in your wisdom, to survive in this wicked world. God expects that you have sharp and efficient wisdom. Only then you will be victorious and also be able to move forward. Only then you will be able to crush down the mountain like problems that stand before you. With sharp wisdom, and knowledge you will be able to crush down the mountain like problems that crops up in your life. Then you will be able to rejoice in the Lord and Glorify the Holy one. To live a peaceful life God is speaking as prophesy that your children who are dull and inefficient, will become wise and efficient. They will do well not only in their studies but also shine in their career. They will become greater and greater in their life as God has promised to bless your descendants. The Lord declares that there is hope for your future. All your children will be taught of the Lord. And the well being of your children shall be great upon the earth. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord for making us into new threshing sledge with sharp teeth that we may be able to drill the mountain and hills into dust. Help us to face the challenges boldly with sharp wisdom and knowledge. May we be able to crush down the mountain like problems that often crops up in our life, and live a victorious life so that we may rejoice in the Lord and glory in the Holy One.
