Dearly Beloved, 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 Psalms 102:16, “For the Lord shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His Glory. He shall regard the prayer of the destitute. And shall not despise their prayer.”
From the above context we see that God approves the prayer of the destitute, and does not despise them. Today you are reading this message with many requests in your mind; will I be able to settle my children? Can I go abroad? When will flights start operating? Will my son also secure a good job overseas? Will I be able to settle my daughter soon? Such questions and many more, keep coming up in your mind often. There is sudden fear about your future. Many, whom you considered, will extend help to you, only disappointed you. But Jesus will never despise you. Neither will He neglect you like men folks. He is a Father to the fatherless and defender of the widows. He knows very well that you are dependent upon Him and that you do not have anyone besides Him. So He will acknowledge your request and perform a miracle for you. He will heal your disease. He will support you when you call upon His name. He will direct your steps. He will protect you and your children from your enemies; they may be your own relatives. Who take advantage of your helpless state and cause you pain. They may hurt you by their words. Don’t lose heart. God is near to help you.
Firstly God will build a house for the deprived and will set them free from their bondages. The Bible says, God sets the solitary in families. He releases the prisoners from the prison and redeems those in bondage, The Lord is the father of the fatherless, He is concerned about the widows, and He will bring justice to the widows. Some women will have husband but they will live like widow, Some children will have father or mother but they will live like orphans. This is what is meant to be fatherless. When the earthly father or husband fails to do their responsibility to their wives or their children then God Himself will come down in a marvellous manner and provide their needs. He becomes the Father to the fatherless and widows. We see this in our day to day life. This applies to all those who are suffering. The Lord will be a defender to the widows. He will open ways and means for your livelihood. He will open the windows of heaven and meet all your needs. When widows cry unto God He will hear their cry from heaven above and will not despise their prayer. He will answer them and solve their problems. He heard the prayer of both Ruth and Naomi and blessed them as they were widows.
I see in my spirit that many of you are residing in rented house. The landlord often asks you to vacate your house. Then it becomes too difficult for you to look out for a house, as per your budget. You struggle. To such people God says, “I will build a house for you.” David asked God to build a house for him. To provide a house of your own is a simple thing for God to do. Even people with much wealth may not be able to build a house. Unless God blesses them with a house, they cannot have one. So God has to permit you to build a house. God will not only provide a house for the desolate but also deliver them from the bondages in which they are caught up with. May be debts, bad habits, witchcraft, or some wrong relationship or some other issues, whatever it may be God is going to deliver all of you, who are reading this message from your bondages. So be cheerful in the Lord. Give Him room in your heart that He might be able to perform miracles in your life. For He will neither leave you nor forget you. God says, “Fear Not, for I am with you. Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you. Yes I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”Hold on to His promise. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord thank You for your kindness towards widows and the fatherless. We thank you for building them a house and also delivering them all from their bondages. You remember us in our lowly state of life. So we thank You Lord. Help us also to consider You as our Head, of the family.
