My dearly beloved 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 of Isaiah 31:5, “Like birds hovering overhead,the Lord Almighty will shield Jerusalem; he will shield it and deliver it, he will ‘pass over’ it and will rescue it.”
From the above context, we learn that God comes down in a marvellous manner to help us face our obstacles and problems. Maybe your son or daughter is put up in a foreign country and you feel sorry and regret that you are unable to go and meet your children when they are in trouble because of the distance. Maybe your spouse living abroad is caught up in some court case and you regret that you are unable to rescue him/her from the case, you are not even able to take him/her out on bail. You are in a very helpless situation but you must remember that you have a God who is a God at hand and afar off. When you pray from your home, He will perform miracles for your children or your spouse who lives abroad far away from you.
Where you cannot go, God can go. He is omnipotent and knows all your feelings. God can help you, if only you call on the name of the Lord, God of Israel. God says, “Call upon Me in the day of trouble and I will rescue you and you shall glorify Me.” When you call the Lord is ready to hear you and help you also. So you cast all your burden upon the Lord, He will sustain you, He will never allow the righteous to be moved. God says, “ Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, I will give you rest.”Yes God wants to comfort you, console you who are in trouble and in helpless situation like birds flying swiftly, the Lord will move over quickly to extend help to you while you go through struggles.
God says, Bring all your problems to Me I will solve them for you. He has also said, “Bring all your cases to Me, and I will solve all your problems for you and set you free from your burden. The Bible says, “The Lord will fight for you. You shall stand still and see the salvation of God”. So in case you are going through problems as mentioned above then you leave it in the hands of the Lord. He will bring victory to your life. God has decided to come down and support you and help you just as he supported Jerusalem, God has descended to support you and your family. If you have the support of God, then no one can stand against you. The Lord will make you successful. I have heard people say, “To come out of this problem I do not have man power or enough money or someone in higher authority to save me from this trying situation. What money, manpower or, men in authority cannot do, God can do for you just trust in Him and increase your faith in Jesus. He will make you victorious. The Bible says, If God is on your side, then who can stand against you? When God is your strong support and backup then no one can come against you. For you will not be the victim but you shall be the victor. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we thank You because you are willing to be our strong support and like birds hovering over, You will fly over quickly, to save us from our helpless situation. Today we cast all our burden upon You. Jesus care for my family who is abroad and bless them. Help us Oh Lord,, during times of trial when we are forsaken by all we know You will never leave us or forsake us and will help us through it all. We trust in You and surrender everything before You. You lead us and help us according to Your will..
