I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Isaiah 33:20. “Look upon Zion, the city of our appointed feasts, Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet habitation. A tabernacle that will not be taken down, not one of its stakes will ever be removed. Nor will any of its cords be broken. But there the Majestic Lord will be for us.”
From the above context we learn that the Lord is asking us to look at Zion when we are in trouble. Therefore I prophetically would like to say that it is not good to go after human beings rather you need to look up to Zion for your help. For the Bible says, “They looked up to God and they were radiant. And their faces were not put to shame.” Whenever we face problems, being in flesh we tend to, run for help, to other persons. But I speak through the word of God mentioned above, to look up to Zion. “Look upon Zion, which is the city of our appointed feasts. There Your eyes will see Jerusalem, a quiet city, A tabernacle, that will not be taken down, But there the Majestic Lord will be available for us.”Even David says, My help comes from God who made the Heaven and Earth. Therefore I will look up to the Hills from where my help comes from.” He had confidence in God Almighty. For the Bible says, “It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes. ”
Dearly beloved, the only one God who can liberate you free of cost is Jesus Christ. He is the star of hope. All you need to do is to look up to Christ, who alone is able to rescue you from all your troubles, however big they might be. Because our God is much bigger than your problems. He will hide you and protect you from all your enemies. Tell the Lord, that you are caught up in a problem. And ask Him to help you, then He will come down in marvelous manner, and help you. Say, “Lord Please help me.”If you look up to mount Zion, you will be delivered from all your problems. The moment you look up to Zion the lord who made the heaven and earth will come to rescue you from your difficult situation immediately. And you shall receive a miracle from God. The Bible says, whether you are in the midst of the deep sea, or in the midnight, when you call up to God, He will answer you speedily and descend upon you, to help you. May be you are in trouble and you call your friend, even he will not be able to help you since he must be residing far away from you. In case you are calling up to your son or daughter who are playing outside, saying that you are having chest pain, they may be reluctant to come quick to help you. They may fail to know the seriousness of your pain. Or you may call up to your husband sitting beside you, to get you a glass of water but before he could bring the water you might collapse. I have heard people say, “It all happened in a fraction of a second. ” He was there a moment ago but now he is gone. Death sweeps our people within a moment. I know of a brother who lost both his mother and his wife leaving behind his two children. So this is the current situation of many people who call others for help.
I wish to narrate to you about an incident that took place in my own life, three years back. I had returned home late night after attending a meeting in a local church. Just before dinner my stomach started paining. The pain increased gradually and I couldn’t bear the pain any longer. I felt as if my eyes would come out, due to pain. I became restless in pain. I couldn’t sit, stand, or eat my dinner. I was immediately rushed to the hospital but the doctor was unavailable. He was attending to other patients. He was actually getting ready, to take the scan for me. But the pain was so acute that I looked up to the Zion, in prayer. I told the Lord that I couldn’t bear the pain. I cried out to Him for help. Then I suddenly felt an arm pushing me into the rest room. I simply don’t know who it was, but after a moment, the pain disappeared. I felt completely relieved. I told my brother in law that we can return home. But just then the doctor asked me to come for check up. So he took the scan and the report stated that there was no sign of any stone in the kidney. There was only one big stone but that had come out while I was in the restroom. Hallelujah!
Just as God answered my prayer and rescued me immediately He will help you also who are reading this message. You may be suffering from various problems. You may be caught up in debts and the person who lent you money may be troubling you to repay the money immediately. Look up to Zion , the Lord will open a way for you to close your debts. Firstly you need to trust in the Lord. Then call up the name of God. He will answer you. May be you have lost your job during the corona period. God will open a new door for you. You will secure a better job with more salary. Likewise the settlement of your son or daughter must have got postponed due to Corona. They will soon get married, if you will look up to Zion with your whole heart. Do not be afraid. The Lord will be with you and help you. The Psalmist says, Behold God is my helper. The Lord is the Sustainer of my soul. David also says, Lord you have given the shield of Your Salvation, And your Help Makes Me Great. Make the Lord God of Israel your HELPER, Look up to Zion. God Bless you.
