Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our creator, maker and our ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given us today is from the book of Deuteronomy 32:9-10, “For the Lord’s portion is His people, Jacob His allotted inheritance. In a desert land He found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; He guarded him as the apple of His eye”
In this portion we see that Jacob was roaming in the desert land with no one to love and care for him. He was devastated in life. This was when God found him. The Bible tells us that after the Lord had found Jacob, He instructed and led him in the way he should go. God cared for him as the apple of His own eyes.
The bible also tells us an incident about Hagar. Hagar and her son were sent out of the house by her husband and there was no one to care for them. They were all alone in the desert. When her son was dying of thirst and hunger, God found him in the deserted land. No one came in search of her and her son. God Himself came in search of her and found her. Hagar encountered God in the desert and named Him El-Roi. “The God who sees me.”
Dearly beloved, even now, you might be thinking as to what is going to happen to your children. Today the Lord is telling “I will find them”. You might have shed tears at the feet of God regarding your children. Today the Lord says, “I have seen your tears and will give you an answer”. Do not be troubled my child, the Lord will take care of your children and will bring them back to you. Put your trust in the Lord and He will be with you.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. Lord, you said that you have seen the tears of your children. I pray that you may answer to all their requests and keep them happy all the days of their lives. In Jesus name we pray,
