My dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today’s auspicious word of God for you is taken from the book of Psalms 33:9, “For He spoke, and it was done. He commanded and it stood fast.”
The Lord who created the universe, looks at you this morning and says, ” If I speak it will be done, and if I command it will stand.” That Day, 2000 years ago, there was a lame man lying at the pool of Bethesda for 38 years, he thought that he would remain in this condition and finally perish. While he was thinking in this manner, God met him. There was no one to help him. But he had a little faith that one day he would be healed. He knew that one day when the angel stirs the water that he will get down and be healed in the water. He was lying there with great faith. When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?” He replied that he desired to get healed but then replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” He said that there was no one to support him. On hearing him, Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” At once the man picked up his mat and walked. Jesus spoke just one word. Immediately that thing happened. That is what this verse indicates. “For He spoke, and it was done. He commanded and it stood fast.”
Immediately he got up and walked. He was lying there in the pool for 38 years, trusting that someone will help him. Suddenly he got up, picked up his bed and walked to his home. See what a good God He is! You too may be saying, there is no one to help you. “There is no one to take me to the doctor. There is no one to take me for the interview. There is no one to tell me something good. There is no one to give me good counseling. I am staying alone and suffering.” The lame man had fallen down for 38 years. He couldn’t get up and He couldn’t get up and walk. You could have fallen into sickness like him. Or you could have fallen into some great sin. He couldn’t get up. But Jesus said, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk to your home. Get up and go to your place of work. Get up and go to your ministry. God tapped Elijah who was sleeping under the broom tree and woke him up and gave him many responsibilities and he implemented it through him.
He is going to give you many responsibilities. Trusting you no one gave you any responsibilities. But God is going to give you many responsibilities and lift you up and beautify you. He is going to lift you up and admire you. If God tells one word you will get a job. If God tells, you will be successful in your interview. God will do all things well and will cause you to bloom in your future. If He commands, it will stand fast.” On that day when there was a great storm in the sea of Galilee, and while the disciples were terrified at the waves of the sea, and the waters were getting into the boat, Jesus was sleeping peacefully. The disciples cried out saying, “Lord we are almost dying. Are you not worried?” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. As soon as he said, Hush be still, the roaring waves calmed down. And the wind died down and it became perfectly calm. In the end it was a smooth and peaceful life. Today, the Lord is going to calm down the roaring sea, and the waves, and will help you to lead your journey in a calm and peaceful manner.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank you. I bless all the children who are reading this message in the name of Jesus. Lord you said and it was done. You commanded and it stood fast. Lord your children are in tears saying that many good things haven’t happened, haven’t occurred, in their life, Lord wherever they go today, make their journey possible, and let it be done as Yes and Amen. Lord they would have gone so close, yet they could not have attained it, and if they have come with disappointment, Lord I pray that all the missing blessings would come in search of their homes. Lord in case there has been a great storm in their family, there is ego, quarrel, and no good understanding between husband and wife, and there is great struggle between parents and children, and getting up early in the morning, they are unable to face each other, and are stumbling, at this point of time, Lord I pray that you will calm down all the roaring of the waves, and grant them peace and serenity between husband and wife, with love, affection and unity in the family. In Jesus Name We Pray.
