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!

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)!

Why Jesus?

Because He really is all you need.

When you are down and out, He will be your comfort and strength.

When you were still His enemy, He shed every drop of His blood and laid down His life for you.

Because He rose up again on the third day.

Because He cared when no one really cared about you.

Because He was, Has been and still is extremely patient with you.

Because even when He disciplines you, He loves, cares for you, and refines you.

And because if you could only see with His eyes, you will know that He is your true happiness, your source of joy and real peace.

Jesus is all you need and He is enough for you.

I know, because I have been through, and have experienced HIS grace and mercy.

TRY JESUS!
