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 the special word of God for you is taken from the book of Isaiah 66:13, “As one whom his mother comforts, so I will Comfort you.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, The Bible says, that God comforts us, as though the mother comforts her child. The mother carries her child for ten months in her womb. The mother who carries her babe in her womb knows how difficult it is to carry the child in her womb. Only she knows the pain while she delivers her baby. No matter how mischievous the child is, the mother would pat on his shoulder and tolerate her son or daughter and keep comforting them. She will not speak in a manner that would cause pain to her child. The mothers will handle her children very carefully. You might have seen Fathers telling the Mothers, you have spoilt my child by being very loving and kind. The mother shows kindness, because she does not want to hurt her child. The mind of the child should not be disturbed, should not be hurt or pained in any way. The mother therefore keeps comforting her child at all circumstances. She will keep comforting her child. We have often seen how girls who have been married and when they come to their mothers house, go straight to the mother and lie on her lap. The daughter might have three children, but still she will be like a child in the lap of her mother.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, The daughter will share all that is in her mind with her mother. She feels relieved having shared all her thoughts to her mother. When the daughter shares all her thoughts with her mother, then immediately the mother encourages her and supports her and tells her not to worry over anything because she will remain strong with her. And further says that she would share all about her problems with her father and ask him to support her to solve all her troubles. And still further she would say, “I shall pray for you, the Lord will help you to overcome your problems. So do not worry. “This is how a mother will support her child who has grown up and has got married and has gone to her in-laws house. The mother would tell her that if she is worried over her problems then she would grow weak and pale and would even become sick. Mother would say, “I am there you don’t worry. “ My dear children of God the mother will usually be supportive to her child and would always comfort her child to the very end. That is the nature of a good mother. At times when daughters misbehave and finally fail in their married life, the mother would not hesitate to take the help of other children who do well in life in order to support her daughter who has lost her family life.
Once a sister came up to me and said, “Brother as long as my mother is alive, she will seek the help of my brothers and sisters and will support me. But after the death of my mother who will support me?” I told that sister, that only the Lord will meet all her needs till the very end of her life. I told her that just as her mother supported her, the Lord will continue to support her. Later her mother died, but before her death, this sister, secured a small job through the Government who helped the destitute women under the quota which offered help to the destitute and down trodden women. She said, “Brother the small payment is sufficient to manage my children and my family. I don’t go for help to my brothers or sisters.” God has performed a miracle for me. So what we see through this incident is that the daughter was worried as to who was going to support her after the death of her mother. Who will get me help from others was her greatest thought that worried her much? I am a destitute. When I took the promise for this day I thought about that sister only. So even before her mother’s death, she secured a small government job. Her mother died peacefully having seen her daughter secure a job. The mother was glad that her daughter finally got a government job. And she did not have to seek the help of her siblings that is her brothers and sisters. And that sister is living her life very peacefully. The Bible says, “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take care of me.” The love of the mother is beyond expression. But even if that love gets spoiled, God will never forsake you, because it is God who gave you this mother. Our God has the mother’s heart, full of love and compassion. So lay down all your problems in the lap of the Lord. He will do great things in your life. He will comfort you like a mother who comforts her child.
Prayer: Dear Lord we thank You, Lord I bless all the children who are reading this message. Lord if there are any who are suffering from want of comfort, I pray that they receive the comfort of God. Lord you said, “Just as a mother comforts her child, I will comfort you.” Lord open doors for new jobs in order to comfort all the children who are suffering without a job, without means for living. Lord open a way for their good family life. Lord you stand on behalf of them, and conduct the marriage that has been hindered due to certain reasons, and I pray that you comfort them. Many of them have been broken in heart, so by getting those married cause them to be happy and comforted. By giving them a good job, comfort them. Comfort them with good salary. By closing down their debts comfort them. By bringing an end to their sickness, comfort them. By bringing an end to their court cases, grant comfort to them. Let the good Spirit of comfort, remain with them and lead them with peace and happiness.
In Jesus Name We Pray.
