When God seems silent

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

You know the word God is not mentioned in the book of Esther even once, neither the word Prayer, atleast in KJV and NKJV. This should still make our hearts glad, because deliverance did come and it was none other than God Himself who delivered the Jews from that wicked Haman.

Many a times we may also feel that the Lord is just silent or absent from our trials and tribulation, but be of good cheer as our Lord would say, HE is very much in our midst, in the midst of the storm, HE is our ever present help in times of trouble. Like Esther there comes a time when we need to fast (and pray) to our Lord, for deliverance from our trials and victory over the enemy. Even if you feel God is silent, just go to Him in prayer, for He will surely answer by delivering you. He has promised this in His word – Ps. 50:50, Call unto me in the day of trouble, I will save you and you will glorify me”.

Remember, HE is not only our GOD and MASTER, but even more now through JESUS, Our FATHER. The battle therefore belongs to Him. The Word of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 20:15 says, “Thus says the Lord to you, Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours, but God’s.” Verse 17 is even more reassuring, “You will not need to fight this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord… Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them for the Lord is with you.”

Dear Father, we are glad that You are always attentive to Your children, You always hear our cry and answer our prayer. Even when we feel you are silent and faraway we know that You are always near and silently fighting for us. Thank you for Your promise that You will never let us be disgraced or ashamed and that whenever we will call You, You will answer and deliver us. We praise you and glorify You, to You alone be all glory and honour. In Jesus name we pray, Amen!

More than a Conqueror

I am more than a conqueror,
Sin has no dominion over me,
Death has no victory over me,
Satan has no power over me.

I am my Master’s servant,
But He calls me His friend.
Adopted me as His Son,
And made me His very own.
Undeserving, yes, but by the Grace of God and through Faith in His Begotten Son, I am now a child of the Most High.

Thank you Jesus! May Your Kingdom come,
May You always increase, and I decrease.
Blessed Be the God of my Salvation,
Let every breath in me never cease to Praise Your Name!

Let not your heart be troubled

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you. I go prepare a place for you.” John 14: 1 and 2.

Believer, if your heart is troubled, let it not be so because Jesus tells us to trust in Him. He will indeed calm your troubled heart. Just ask Him, take your troubled heart to Him and He will give you rest, and perfect peace.

1 Peter 5:7 tells us, “Cast all your anxiety upon Him for He cares for you.”

Isaiah 26: 3 says, “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.”

Put on the Helmet of Salvation, dear reader, and fill your mind with His Word. Ask God to give you the mind of Christ, and He will give you perfect Peace. Trust in the Lord and do not lean on your own understanding, and He will direct your path.

Jesus has already gone before you, to prepare a place for you. He has already gone before you to straighten the crooked paths, to defeat your enemies, to fight your battles, to bless you with streams in the desert and make road for you in the wilderness. Trust Him and He will do what is impossible for you. Is anything too hard for the Lord?

Make me more like JESUS

Change my heart O Lord,
Make me more like You.
Wash me, cleanse me, mold me,
purge me, chastise me, do all You need to,
But change my heart O Lord,
And make me more like You.

Give me Love to love the unloving,
Strength to forgive my enemies,
Patience to endure all things,
Faithfulness toward You and those I ought to be faithful to.
Supply all my needs according to Your riches in Glory in Christ Jesus,
And make me more like You.

Give me the Spirit of Wisdom and Understanding,
The Spirit of the Knowledge of Your Word.
Give me the Fruit of Repentance and Righteousness,
The Fruit of the Spirit,
And a Heart to Obey and Worship You in Spirit and in Truth.

Now take my hand Precious Lord,
Lead me in the way Everlasting,
Hold me with Your Righteous Right Hand,
To daily walk with You, Meditate on You, Live for You, Die for You,
And eventually become more like YOU!

Nothing is too difficult for Thee

Is there anything too hard for you Lord?

Absolutely nothing! Nothing is too difficult for Thee.

For you are all so Powerful, Ever so Wonderful,

You are All Knowing, All Encompassing.

Full of Mercy and Compassion, Slow to Anger,

The Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and the End,

From Everlasting to Everlasting,

You are the Great I Am.

The year of Restoration, for those who Believe

“The threshing floors shall be full of wheat, And the vats shall overflow with new wine and oil. So I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the crawling locust, the consuming locust, My great army which I sent among you.” Joel 2: 24 and 25.

Believer, remember that in Jesus, every promise in the Bible is ours. “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” 2 Corinthians 2:14.

The lost years in your life will be restored. No matter what you lost, no matter where you are now and no matter what you have done, if it is in the perfect will of God, He will give it to you, you simply need to ask. If you doubt, then ask this one question that God Himself had once asked Abraham – “Is anything too hard for the Lord”? The answer my friend, is nothing, absolutely nothing is too hard for the Lord. It is possible for Him to give you every good thing, and He will indeed supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Just do not ask asmiss.

If you have not believed in God’s only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, and if you have not confessed with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and that God raised Him up from the dead, if you have not repented of your sins, and decided to turn to Jesus, then you are not His child and if not His child then you are not heir to His Kingdom, and these promises or any promise in the Bible, not even an Everlasting Life with Him is yours to claim. Try Jesus, turn to Him alone for the redemption of your sins, and see the Salvation of God.

Dear Father, I thank you for your Son Jesus Christ whom you sent to die for us, who shed every drop of His blood for the forgiveness and for the redemption of our sins and whom You raised from the dead on the third day. In this uncertain world Lord, you are our Certainty and Hope and in Jesus your Son we claim every promise in the Bible, even the restoration of the lost years of our lives. May your will be done Lord. In Jesus name. Amen.

Jesus Christ is the same Yesterday, Today, Forever

“Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8.

The same God who created the Heavens and the Earth, and formed you beautifully and wonderfully with His hands, the same God, will be with you in your tomorrows.

The same God who parted the Red Sea, made the Sun stand still, the same who was with the three Hebrews in the fiery furnace and with Daniel in the den of lions, the same God, the very God of the very God will also be with you tomorrow and always.

The same God who turned the water into wine, calmed the winds and the waves, healed the sick and raised the dead, will deliver you as you enter a new year.

The same God who raised you up and brought you thus far, the same God who helped you clear that exam, gave you that job, helped clear your bills and blessed you with many blessings. The same God will continue to bless you with many blessings even in the new year and forever more.

The same God who never gave up on you, even when your dearest and nearest ones gave up on you, the same God who was always by your side when all others left and abandoned you, the same God will wipe away your tears and promises to never leave or forsake you even in the future. He will be your Hope, your Future and Your Peace.

Dear reader, we do not know what tomorrow holds, but we sure know who holds our tomorrow. This same Jesus, who was with you and delivered you and provided for you thus far, the same Jesus will be with you tomorrow and forever.

Dear Father, we thank You for being with us thus far, for hearing our cry, answering our prayers, for rescuing us and delivering us every time we called out Your name. As we enter a new year, as we step into the unknown, we know that you are certain, the One who does not change, does not slumber nor sleeps. We know that You will always be our Shield, our Shelter, our High Tower, our Jehova Jireh, our Healer, our Physician, and our All in All. Help us rest in You, trust You and follow You always, and give us the Grace we need and Your Power and enable us to deny ourself, take up our cross daily and follow You. Help us to shine our light so bright that the people around us will see You in us and glorify Your name alone. In Jesus name, Amen!

Jesus has gone before you

“And go quickly and tell His disciples that He is risen from the dead, indeed He is going before you into Galilee; there you will see Him…. Then Jesus said to them, do not be afraid. Go and tell my brethren to go to Galilee, and there they will see Me.” Matthew 28:7 and 10.

In this chapter we see the angel and then Jesus himself telling the women (Mary Magdalene one of them) to go and tell His disciples to go to Galilee and there they will meet with Jesus.

We may recall that even in the sea of Galilee, Jesus sent His disciples ahead of Him, to go to the other side, and there in that sea they were caught in the storm and Jesus calmed the storm, and the disciples worshiped Jesus.

If today Jesus is telling us to go to the other side or if He is telling us to go to Galilee, we must, because He has already gone ahead of us and has prepared the way for us to meet Him there. If we are caught in the storm, just know that Jesus will calm the storm and we will experience His power and worship Him there.

Let us not worry about the unknown, if Jesus told us to go on the other side, let us go to the other side for we will indeed be on the other side, and we will meet our Lord there. If He has told us to go to Galilee, let us go to Galilee, for Jesus has gone before us and we will meet Him there.

Be of good cheer dear reader, our Lord has promised and He will keep His promise and we will praise Him.

Dear Lord, we don’t know what is on the other side, but if you have told us to go on the other side, we will go, for you will meet us there. And if we face the storms in the middle, you will come its midst and calm the storms and take us safely on the other side. Help us to trust in You alone and not hear any other misleading voices. To You alone O Lord be all glory and honour, now and forever. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen!

Lord Save Me!

Save me from my rage

Save me from this bitterness and hate

Save me from my enemy within and the sudden destruction he brings

Save me from myself

And Heal Me Lord!

Heal me from all my afflictions and pain

If only I touch the hem of your garment, Lord if only You speak a Word…

I know I will be healed. I am healed!

I have put my trust in Thee!

There is none like THEE, O LORD!
YOU are ever so WONDERFUL, forever FAITHFUL,
“THY loving KINDNESS is better than LIFE.”

Whom have I, but THEE, in this world and in the UNSEEN!
YOU are my FRIEND, my FIRST LOVE, my ALL.
Ever beside me, my BATTLE SHIELD, my COMFORTER, my GOD, my SAVIOUR YOU are!

For me a sinner, YOU came!
Not as KING (which YOU are), not as PRINCE or PRIEST (which also you are),
But, a mere SERVANT, humble and lowly you became,
That I who was lost be found,
And blind, who could see.

YOU are the CHRIST, the MESSIAH!
The SON of GOD, the CREATOR.
Who suffered and died, shed HIS innocent blood,
To wash away my SINS, and make me FREE forever.

To be my FATHER, my FRIEND, my ALL
So I could be with YOU, now and FOREVERMORE (through eternity)!
