Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book ofPsalms 37:4, “Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
Dearly beloved , even as you read this message , I speak to you from the depth of my heart, that from today the Lord is going to answer all your requests. The Bible says, “God’s promises are, in Him yes and in Him Amen, to the glory of God, through us.” You may have many hidden desires in your heart, and God is going tofulfill all your desires. God promises that if you delight in Him, He will give you the desires of your heart. Taking delight in the Lord means, that your hearts must truly long after God. In fact you should seek your happiness in God Himself, in His being, His greatness, His glory and His power.
Nehemiah says, “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”Which means being happy in the Lord, is his joy. The word delight means “to gain great pleasure” satisfaction, and happiness.’’By reading the word of God , by singing and praising and adoring Him you receive happiness. God should always, be revered and adored. He should have our utmost respect. You should strive to adore God on a daily basis. God gives joy to a man who is good in His sight. God will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him.So to obtain your requests you need to be good before the Lordand fear Him too at all times.
You might have prayed to the Lord and submitted your requests to God many years ago. But You did not receive any answer to your prayers. And so you have been worrying that you have not yet received an answer to your prayers. Today, the Lord is going to fulfill all your desires. While I was in prayer, God showed me a vision. I saw the requests and prayers that you had submitted at the feet of the Lord. He has categorized all your requests and desires in three files as pending file, urgent file and emergency file.
Emergency file is the file that contains your requests. But if God did not perform a miracle for those requests, you might be disheartened or even worried. Urgent file is the file that needs to be checked immediately. Pending file is the file that contains requests that God thinks that He can grant it to you, a little later, when you are matured enough to handle the blessings. He will release the blessings one by one, only when He knows for certain that you are capable to retain it. I asked the Lord as to why those blessings were being withheld and delayed. God replied saying, “I will first give them the needed maturity to those children who are immature, and will then shower all these blessings to them. ’
So the Lord will grant you first the maturity to handle the blessings and then He will bless you. A man must learn to be delight Himself in the Lord whether he is blessed or not. He must learn to be content with what God has blessed him with. You need to thank God for every situation in life. Only then the Lord will be able to bless you abundantly. Your happiness is very precious to the Lord. Thank God and adore the Heavenly Father for His goodness. Amen. Praise the Lord. God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord we are in need of many good things in this world. Be merciful to us and grant us our desires. Teach us to fear, and adore you. Give us the longing to have an intimate fellowship with You. May we enjoy Your presence in our life. Teach us to be always content with what God has blessed us with. We humbly pray that God grant us the desires of our heart.
In Jesus name we pray,
GOD NEVER FORSAKES YOU
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 of Isaiah 40:1, 2, “Comfort, yes, comfort My people!” Says your God. “Speak comfort to Jerusalem.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from
the above context we understand that our God Comforts those that are burdened with
heavy heart. He comforts them like a mother. We often think how special and
beloved our mothers are. They are really very dear gift to us. I would like the
readers to consider God’s motherly comfort of his people. The Prophet Isaiah gives us the word of the Lord, “As a mother comforts her child, so will I
comfort you.”Mothers love for you is a spontaneous personal affection. She
loved you when you kicked within her womb. She always, fixed her eyes and cares
on you. When a child is hurt it is Mom they call for. And this is the kind of
comfort being described here in our message.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, the
Mother usually takes care of her children and finds every way, to comfort her
child. She is prepared to sacrifice to any extent for the well being of her
child. She is even prepared to lose anything for the welfare of her child. They
are willing to spend any amount to save the life of their child, in case they are
sick and bed ridden. Mothers usually
consider the future of their children more important than their own well being.
All that they desire to see, is that, their child does well in life.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, many of you are reading this message with
much enthusiasm since it speaks the truth of a good mother. All those who feel
so dejected and despised by your loved ones, God wants to comfort you just as a mother
would comfort you. Some of you may not hold a good job, or may not even earn a
good income. May be you are having huge sum of debts and hence living in shame.
You might be facing some kind of unpleasant situation in your work spot or in
the neighbourhood. God is bringing an end to such situation. God will perform a
miracle for you and comfort you. Don’t you worry, God will comfort you.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, While Jesus lived on the face of this
earth, He personally visited the people, performed miracles and comforted them.
There was a widow of the city of Nain. She had a son, when Jesus came near the
gate of the city he saw a dead man being carried out to be buried. He was the
only son of his mother. She was burdened
with a heavy heart. Her only son was
dead. She lost all her hope. How could
she survive without anyone? When the Lord saw her, He had compassion on
her and said to her, “Do not
weep.”Then he touched the coffin and said to the young man, “I say to you,
arise.” And he who was dead, sat up. And began to speak. And he handed over the young man to
his mother. Her sorrow was turned to joy in a moment. He will change your
mourning into dancing.
loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord for
comforting us like a mother. Thank You
Lord for helping us to realize the important role a mother plays. Help us to inherit such good qualities from
her. May we console and comfort those in distress as God comforted others.
Jesus name we pray.
Make God your treasure.
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 Psalms 16: 5, 6 “You O lord are the portion of my inheritance, and my cup. You maintain my lot. The lines have fallen to me in pleasant places. Yes, I have a good inheritance.’’
From the above passage we see how Jesus turns to God with great confidence and bounding joy. He delighted in God the Father, even while he was in his sorest sorrows; He still laid hold of His Father. Although He was tempted yet He never stooped to worship the prince of this world.
Similarly we too can make our boast in the Lord. He is our portion supplying all our necessities for our life on this earth and in the life to come. As children of the Father, who is in heaven, we inherit, by virtue of our joint heir ship with Jesus.
In this psalm we see, that David, flees to God’s protection with cheerful, believing confidence. Those who have avowed that the God is their Lord should often live up to it. You must devote yourself to the honour of God in the service of the saints. We need to be saints on earth in order to be saints in heaven. Those who have been renewed by the grace of God and devoted to the glory of God are saints on the earth. Our God is great and greatly to be praised. Shulamite in Songs of Solomon, says, “’My beloved is handsome, yes pleasant. He is ruddy and white. Chief among ten thousand.”’ So great is our God.
Can such a great God give his children that which is worthless. The Lord,
who is great will always, be of great value.
There is a saying that goes on to say, “’ Tell me your friend and I will
tell you who you are”’ the more you get acquainted with a person; you tend to
inherit all his qualities or his nature. You will soon become more like him. For you will begin to reflect his qualities.
Today you are looking out to that great God, who will give you the best. When you consider God as your inheritance and think of all the good things that God has provided for you, then you will be blessed without any doubt. Make God your treasure. It is He who gives you all that you naeed from His store house. There is nothing more to lose in life if you have received the Lord Jesus as your saviour and Lord of your life. For He is the maker of heaven and earth, the sea and everything in them. It doesn’t matter what you lose or how much you lose but if you keep Jesus within your heart, then God almighty will rule your hearts and mind. The Bible says, “’You should seek the Lord in the hope, that they might feel for him and find Him Though He is not far from each one of us.” If only you seek him you will find him.” For you can do nothing without God.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord helps us to take hold of God at all times. May we acquire the qualities of Jesus. Be amore humble, more righteous and also, longsuffering. Let the Lord be the portion, and inheritance of our life. Teach us to seek the Lord while He may be found. May we receive the best from God who is great and awesome in Nature.
In Jesus name we pray.
THE GREAT BLESSING.
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 Psalm 37:25, “I have been young and now am old, yet have not seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread.”
From the above context we understand that this is David’s observation about the righteous. So he says, “’I never saw a truly pious, just and charitable man, left destitute, of necessary things; or his children after him. “God is ever merciful and lends. In fact he has the ability as well as the inclination, to give, to lend to others if need requires, his seed is blessed –not only with spiritual but with worldly blessing.
However godliness hath so far the promise of the life that they who seek first and principally the kingdom of God shall have the necessaries of life provided for them in some way or other. Therefore to fear and serve God is the readiest way to secure ourselves and families from want. Many of you, who are reading this message, are going through miserable period of time. Some of you are worried about the future of your children. Some of you have grown old and wonder as to what would become of your children? You seem to worry over your child, who has not settled as yet. Your son has not even secured a good job. You have educated him with much difficulty, but he has been a failure. He has not fared well in his interview. You started a small business for him but he is incapable of running the business. You are worried over your daughter who is growing old. You are unable to secure a good proposal for her.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, until yesterday things have gone wrong but God assures you of a bright future. So cast all your burden upon the Lord and He will sustain you. He cares for you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved. Trust in the promises of God. He will never forget you nor forsake you. For those of you who are in tears because of your children, will one day behold, your children doing well in their studies, in their career, in their marriage life and whatsoever. God will not only bless your children, by placing them in good position, in life, but also extend your life to see them do well.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, King David, had to go through a trying period in his life. Many times he was under death trap. But he says, “’ Lord You who have shown me great and severe troubles, shall revive me again and bring me up again from the depths of the earth.”He further says, “Though the Lord disciplined me severely, he has not given me over to death.” This is the confidence he had in God. So God saved him from the cruel hands of the enemies and saved his life. He also extended the days of his life, that his eyes might see his son seated on the throne. Similarly God will perform a miracle for you if you have confidence in God. For the Lord will be your confidence. And will keep your feet from being caught. God will allow you to see the well being of your children.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, May be till yesterday your children would have attended several interviews but they would been a failure. They would not have performed well in their studies. Or they have incurred a great loss in their business. Some of you have not been able to do your ministry successfully. God is aware of all your struggles. He will wipe away your tears. You will soon rejoice over the victory and success of your children. From this time forth you will experience a change in the course of your life and that of your children. Just as God allowed King David to witness his son Solomon sit on the throne God will help you witness your children do well in their life. They will shine like the stars forever. God bless you and your children.
loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You for
directing our steps
and for providing all our needs.
Lord you said that our children will be
taught by the Lord and great will be the peace of our children. Accordingly we
pray that you will bless our children and help us to see them well placed in
life, so that they may not lack any good thing.
In Jesus name we pray.
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 Titus 3:5, “He saved us not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit”.
From the above context we understand that by the grace of God we have been given a rare and wonderful opportunity to rise above the rest of humanity. We are heirs of God, possessors of the hope of eternal life, and of the knowledge of God’s purpose. We are, as Jesus said, to be the lights shining in the darkness of this evil age. So Paul says, it is our responsibility as God’s children in this world to fight the evil human nature within us and instead display the nature of God, in all of our actions, towards one another.
We were not saved from our sins and brought into the family of God, because of our good works, righteous deeds, important heritage or exemplary behaviour. But the whole matter is exclusively based on the kindness and love of God. It all centres on his grace and mercy towards us. It is because He is rich in mercy and not willing to perish, but that all should come to repentance, and turn from their sins.
Those of you reading this message may have lent money to others or you might have borrowed money from others. That’s fine. But just to get the money back from the person, who borrowed from you, kindly don’t squeeze them or torture them because God will not be pleased with you. You need their blessing and not their curse. When you trouble them they might curse you in return. They may not have the required money to pay you back. So treat them gently and not go to their house and abuse them with harsh words rather deal with them more kindly and give them sufficient time to repay the money or exempt them from major payments. Help them; if possible be kind to them. Then the Lord will bless you.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Suppose you have signed any document saying that you will make payment to someone then be sure to be honest and repay the amount as you have signed in the document. Suppose you have the required money and you don’t want to return the money from whom you have borrowed then it is a curse to you. So be careful to pay back the dues you owe to someone. Don’t be slack concerning your payment. One who lent you the loan may be a financier or a millionaire but that does not matter to you. But you need to pay back the money you have borrowed promptly. Hallelujah!
I would like to share an incident that took place with one of my friend. I had a call from him, and he said that one of his friend who borrowed some money from him was dodging him, and refusing to make his payments. Moreover he was not picking up calls. They were in good terms as long as the other had not borrowed money from him. But after he had borrowed a great change came upon his behaviour. He stopped calling my friend and would avoid him. So my friend called him on another number and that person immediately picked up the call. Then my friend spoke to him saying, “Never mind, if you don’t pay the money but you do one thing, you watch the Tamilan channel on Wednesdays at 7am every week. And if possible get an appointment with that Brother Stephen and pray with him.”
My friend knew very well that if they watch the programme then they would be touched by the message and they will receive deliverance. They would have better understanding and would repent of their error. And God might open the doors of prosperity and they may not suffer from further debts. ”Therefore that brother came to meet me for counselling with his family and by God’s grace and through prayers that family has been set free from all their debts and now they are living a happy life far from troubles. God of grace and mercy had been merciful to this family and liberated them from their captivity. Halleluiah! God knows how to twist and turn the minds of the people so that both will not be offended and God will make it in favour of you. Just as God was merciful to this family God will be merciful to you. For the Bible says, “All those who wait for him will be blessed.””Wait on Him and be blessed.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank you for being so merciful to us, and for forgiving our sins. Lord we pray that we will owe no man any dues. Help us to be honest with all our dealings. May we follow God’s teachings and remain honest in all that we do. May we be willing to repent of our sins. Lord be merciful to us just as Your Father is merciful.
In Jesus name we pray.
