My beloved children in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I am delighted to meet you all on this day, September 29th, through this daily Auspicious Message. Let us read Psalms 50:15 “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.”
My dear children of God, It is not a man who is saying, “Call upon me in the day of trouble.” But by a good God who comes as soon as we call Him and does miracles. You might have seen people call out to their fathers in times of trouble. When the foot slips, we call out ‘Amma’. But others call out ‘Jesus’ in times of trouble. There is nothing wrong with calling out to ‘father’ or ‘ mother’ in times of trouble, but they could be far off. We don’t know if they could come at that time. If anything were to happen to their child, they would be nervous, but for them to come to our aid it would take time. They must drive a car, ride a bus, walk, run, or take a flight to come which would take time. But the only person who will come to defend and deliver us as soon as we call on Him like birds flying about, is the God that we worship, our Lord Jesus Christ. When you face a problem, a sickness, an affliction, or an accident just cry out ‘Jesus’. When we call out ‘Jesus’ He will come immediately whether you are in the middle of an ocean, or if it is the fourth watch of the night. As soon as you call Him, He will come running to help you. If you call your friends to help you, they may highlight how you hurt them in a particular incident. If you call a relative to help, they may say they are going to an interview, or it is their first day at work. Sorry, I can’t help. But God does not give excuses.
Today God will transform all the bad experiences you had with your job, and He will directly come to your defence and deliver you. There is a beautiful verse, “Like birds flying about, So will the Lord of hosts defend Jerusalem. Defending, He will also deliver it.” That means He will protect you from danger, deliver you, and save you. Today you need the practice to call unto God in times of trouble, to pray. Danger can strike without warning. It is also possible to predict that danger will strike tomorrow. When you anticipate danger, you must pray to stop it ahead of time. People will remark, “Before the water comes, we have to build a dam. Then we can stop it, otherwise, after the water starts coming it is tough to build a dam.” But it is an easy thing for the Lord to build a dam even if the water has started coming. The problem has come, it is threatening to cut off the neck, call out ‘Jesus’ and His grace will come to protect you. David says, “My feet slips” This means the problem has come, my feet have slipped, and I am going to fall down. Foot slips, mean the flood waters have come. But David says, “Thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.” That grace protected me from being wounded in my head and dying and from destruction. Practice praying daily to this God. Ask the Lord for the gift of prayer. Call upon the Lord in the day of trouble; He will deliver you, and you shall glorify Him. Many forget and ignore God once the incident is over. If the Lord protected you, you have to say, “Lord, thank You.” When I go for meetings, I will tell the Lord, “Please come with me.” After coming back, I will say, “Thank You for guiding me wonderfully in this meeting, thank you that the counseling session went well, thank you that the shooting for the Mangala Vaarthai went well. We must imbibe the trait of glorifying God.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank You. During times of trouble, we have called out to you, and you came running to help us like birds flying about to defend us. In the coming days, over our children, over our families, and over our business, Lord stretch forth Your Hand of protection. According to the verse, “I myself will be a wall of fire around it, and I will be its glory within.” Thank You for putting a fence around our family. You made a hedge around Job, around his household, and around all that he has on every side. You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. Put a hedge around everything that belongs to my children and protect them from danger, accident, and pestilence, and grant them Your peace. Lord when my children call out to You, answer them, and deliver them, pour out Your love immeasurably so that they glorify You when You deliver them. All these days for those blessings which my children have not been grateful to You, for all those blessings through this Mangal Vaarthai program along with my children I offer You a million thanks and glory as an offering. In Jesus Name. Amen.
