You are precious - Bro. T. Stephen

Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of Isaiah 43:4, ‘You are precious in My sight, so you have been honoured.”
What a beautiful verse this is! This is a verse that increases our faith in God. Do you know who is saying this? It is the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. You may be a matter of scorn before others; You may be a matter of disgust to others. None of that is important. How are you in the sight of God? The Lord is describing you as precious in His sight. To such children, the Lord is telling that He will honour them. What you must understand from this is that you must shed the feeling of inferiority from yourself. Today, many have inferiority complex, like ‘what will happen to me? What knowledge or wisdom do I have? Who do I have? I don’t have a good job. I don’t have a house of my own. Many have such inferiority complex. But think as to whose child you are! You are the child of God, the King of kings. Why must you degrade or think low of yourself. Others may judge you wrongly. But the Lord knows you well. He understands you better than any other person.
A brother had said about me in this manner. “Brother does not have any meetings now! So he has to run his family with what he gets from the ministry. He also has to take care of the ministry. The other person said, ‘No brother, it is not so. He has given his business on lease to someone else and he is getting lakhs of rupees every month, from that business. What does he lack? When I heard this news, I thought, never mind, the Lord has kept me in great stature before others. It does not matter whether you are exalted before others or looked down upon. The truth is that “I left the Car business for the sake of the Ministry.” Some said, ‘Wait and see he will come to the street in few days and lose everything’. He could have done business and ministry together. Why does he need to leave the business? But I tell you, none who carries the Bible, and serves the Lord will ever beg for food. The Lord will help them to be a blessing to many others.
This is how worldly man will talk, but do not worry about all this. Life is beyond all this. What is the Lord telling about you? ‘You are precious in my sight! Are you truly worthy of it? If not, change yourselves to be wonderful people before the Lord. Your beauty is in your wonderful testimonial life. That is what will portray you as being wonderful people in the Lord’s sight. The Lord will honour such children. You are worried that many do not respect you. My children, you might say. Brother,” my family don’t respect me.” Do not worry , the Lord is honouring you. Never worry about what others talk about you. You walk diligently before the Lord. Be honest in all that you do. God bless you.

Prayer: Loving Lord, we thank you! You have given a wonderful word of encouragement and have revived us by your saying, ‘You are precious in my sight’. Lord I thank you for placing this word that will rekindle faith in the life of my children. From this day, let them receive honour. Let their name and fame spread throughout the land. Grant them a peaceful life. Let their lives be like sweet smelling aroma, before you, and spread around them wherever they go.

In Jesus Name we pray,
