My Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May the name of the Lord be glorified. On this day, Jan 06th it is a great pleasure to meet you all through this auspicious message. May the Lord Bless you all. Take with me from the book of Psalms 23:4. “For you are with me, Your rod andYour Staff, they comfort me. ”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, This is a beautiful Psalm of the Psalmist. This Psalm is learnt by even small children and we have seen them by heart this psalm, in Sunday school and also in churches. And one of those verses is our auspicious word for today. David says, “ Lord you are with me.” How many of you can say this word confidently, that the Lord is with you. Many of you are thinking in your mind that the Lord is always with you. But God is not with you. But He is with many people. With whom is God present and with whom is God not present with them? We must find it out. With Whom will God be present ? If you live a life pleasing unto God and if you fear your conscience then God will surely be present in you. In case you live a wicked life without fearing your conscience, and causing suffering and pain to all others, then with much pain in heart the Lord would have left you. He would not have known anything. If God was with you, then His rod and staff will support you. It will give you comfort. It will grant you peace. It will give you a blessing. It will decorate you and admire your beauty. There is another beautiful verse which says, David became greater and greater day by day. As the Lord of Host was with him.
If God is with you then you will never go behind day after day. Instead you will grow day by day. One can understand that God is with you by your growth. Kings visited Isaac as they knew that the Lord was with him. He grew day by day and became richer and richer and thus became very prosperous. And even during times of famine he reaped a hundredfold of harvest as the Lord was with him. Thus he became successful and that’s why people looking at him said that the Lord was with him. People said, “ It seems God is with you and you have been blessed by God. They inquired of him” . So if we need to grow and progress God must be with you. Once the Lord comes inside of you then God will exalt you and admire you. and you will be able to get back all that you have lost in life.
Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank you. Lord, I pray and bless all the children who are reading this message. In Jesus Name we pray. Lord let the words of David which gave him hope in the Lord, be of much hope to us also. We keep the words of hope at your feet. God of David is with us always. Your Rod and Staff comfort us. Lord for those children who are without hope, and need to be comforted, and there is no one to support them or comfort them and therefore they are crying, and in whichever area they are expecting comfort or miracle in their life, I pray that you will perform a miracle for them and may the Lord come and live inside of them. Lord, I pray that you will intervene in the affairs of the children. Intervene in all their problems which they are facing and also in their court cases and also intervene in their business. And lift them up and decorate them and admire them Just as Isaac reaped a hundredfold of blessing because the Lord was with him, let all the children reap a hundredfold of blessing. Let them progress hundred times more than what they have been. Let all their debts be cleared. The secret of success in David was because the Lord of Host was with him. That is why he grew greater and greater. Be with all the children. Day by day let them grow and progress in their life.
In Jesus Name We Pray.
