My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, 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 Philippians 4:6,7 “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Jesus Christ.”
From the above passage we understand that we should not be anxious about anything however big the problem might seem to be, but in everything we need to ask God in prayer and supplication. There may be many people who think wrong or evil about you, God says, Such people will fall but you will rise up and stand erect. Because victory comes from the Lord. The glory of the Lord is upon you. Your days of sorrow has ended. And the peace of God which surpasses, all understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
The Lord says, I will come and bless you in the place where My name is glorified. Read this message with faith. You will see the glory of God work in your life. Many parents are filled with much sorrow regarding your children. About their education and about their settlement. It is only God who can deliver you from your sorrow. Your friend may take you to a bar and get you drunk to make you happy. Or he might take you to a dance show, to make you happy. Or you might watch a movie, but the joy is for a moment when you return back home you have the same sorrow as before. So God wants you to reveal your sorrow to the Lord. Pour your heart to Him. Because only He can solve your problem.
The Bible says, “Until now you have asked nothing, in My name. Ask and you will receive that your joy may be full.” He is a God who fills the empty space. Isaac’s mother who begot him in her old age suddenly died even before he could get married. So in order to forget his sorrow, Isaac went to the meadows and meditated in the word of God every evening. Abraham sent his servant Eliezer to look for a bride for his son Isaac among his own people. And one day as usual while Isaac was meditating he lifted his eyes and there he saw Rebekah dismount from her camel. Then Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and he took Rebekah, and she became his wife. And he loved her. So Isaac was comforted after his mother’s death. God replaced his mother through his wife and brought joy into his life. The Bible says, Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when the desire comes it is a tree of life.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, After the death of his mother, Isaac must have felt very empty, There was no one to show him love. He was the only son of his aged parents. The Bible says, Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression. But a good word makes it glad. A joyful heart shall do good like a medicine, but a broken spirit dries the bones. Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Therefore I urge that Many children should realize that Parents have given their life to see you do better in this life. So consider your parents do not cause trouble to them. Keep them happy. Honour your father and Mother, that your days, may be long upon the land, and it might be well with thee. God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord, teach us not to be anxious about anything, but to make our request through prayer and supplication. Help us not to be a burden to our parents. But to honour and respect them. May we keep them in peace and joy. Give us the ability to support them especially in their old age. Grant us the knowledge to understand them better. And also to forgive them of their mistakes, when necessary.
In Jesus name we pray,
