Even to the ends of the age!

From the ends of the earth, I cry to you for help when my heart is overwhelmed. Lead me to the towering rock of safety, for you are my safe refuge, a fortress where my enemies cannot reach me. (Psalm 61:2, 3 NLT)

No one understands our fears better than God, no one can bring us out of those fears like God.

None of us are insignificant in the eyes of God, none of our dreadful moments are overlooked by God.

There are no better word to describe how amazing His grace is! His grace find us in the deepest ditches, hears our minuscule voices and with precise timing rescues us!

No one like our God! No enemy can trick, deceive, distract our God from protecting us!

You call upon His name no matter from where you’re and see His faithfulness!

The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble.I will rescue and honor them. Psalm 91:14-15

The wild spreading joy!

Then Simeon blessed them, and he said to Mary, the baby’s mother, “This child (Jesus) is destined to cause many in Israel to fall, but he will be a joy to many others… As a result, the deepest thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your very soul.” (Luke 2:34-35 NLT)

The words, works and the life of Jesus – a mere 3 years and few months of His ministry had changed the whole world!

Religion had collapsed, kingdom had collapsed, people were willing to die, worst outcasts lives were changed 180 degree for good, unheard thousands of miracles started to happen in His Name and His gospel had become the fire in the bones of countless.

On other side, religious became murderers, so thought pious saints were found to be cults, God’s commandments had been redefined and all were put in severe need of true hope in God that Jesus had revealed!

It’s been more than 2000 years now, the fire in bones of those who believed has only became much greater and wildly spreading, His truth has become much clear, His hope has been realized overwhelmingly and embraced more earnestly, faith is understood, fear is fought, forgiveness is received, families and nations that never thought will serve Him has declared “Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Savior and only Hope. Jesus Christ is indeed the Way, the Life and the Truth!”

In His Name, many are been set free, healed, restored, equipped, appointed and sent to release His joy to every hopeless, depressed, oppressed and possessed!

Jesus, the King of Righteous and Truth reigns!

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God… Luke 15:7

Is there anyone better than our God!

But Balaam responded to Balak’s messengers, “Even if Balak were to give me his palace filled with silver and gold, I would be powerless to do anything against the will of the Lord my God. But stay here one more night, and I will see if the Lord has anything else to say to me.” (Numbers 22:18, 19 NLT)

God’s will is not going to change by waiting, negotiating or sacrificing.

His will is always good and just, and He is committed to protect and save those who put their trust in Him!

Thank God, He shows no partiality! Thank God, He stands strong in His commitment! Thank God, He makes promise and never change His mind! Thank God, He never desert us because someone else is better! Thank God, He truly love us and great is His faithfulness!

In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and the Lord answered me and set me free. The Lord is for me, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me? Yes, the Lord is for me; he will help me. I will look in triumph at those who hate me. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in people. It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes. Psalm 118:5-9

Shocking Surprise

“How kind the Lord is!” she exclaimed. “He has taken away my disgrace of having no children.” (Luke 1:25 NLT)

Elizabeth and Zachariah probably managed their expectation as they grew old and wasn’t expecting God to give them a child anymore.

When God gave John the Baptist as their child – they were old and it wasn’t a sweet surprise but was a shocking surprise to learn that God indeed want them to have a child and intended to give at His time – the right time!

Unlike Abraham and Sarah they didn’t had a promise to wait for a child, but they resolved in their hearts to serve the Lord and allowed His will to prevail.

Yes, Elizabeth was too old to have a baby and Mary was too young to have a baby – but it was God’s perfect timing to send John the Baptist, the forerunner and Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior in just the right time when we were utterly helpless!

God is very kind to meet your needs and give your heart’s desire – you can’t hope more to receive it sooner or lose hope to escape the shocking surprise from your dear Lord!

The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Psalm 138:8

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:4

The Master Fisher

One of the teachers of religious law was standing there listening to the debate. He realized that Jesus had answered well, so he asked, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?” (Mark 12:28 NLT)

Lord Jesus took every opportunity to reveal the truth to those who were around and really seeking, even though questions came from rebellious, religious and mere debaters.

When He answered, it was always final – no one could add a word, found a flaw or even a minute gap! They stood speechless irrespective of how they felt inside, either to fall & worship or be envious.

Isn’t our Lord same today! Still many debate, doubt and mock the truth – only resulting in getting more truth out, and bringing more glory and souls to His Kingdom!

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness to God. As the Scriptures say, “He traps the wise in the snare of their own cleverness.” 1 Corinthians 3:19

A life ruled by my King!

I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt so you would no longer be their slaves. I broke the yoke of slavery from your neck so you can walk with your heads held high. (Leviticus 26:13 NLT)

Mordecai in the Book of Esther lived with his head held high and would not bow down to evil and to the spirit of slavery, fear and constant threat.

There is a beautiful underlying message our Lord always wants to convey to us, which is – He is our King and we are His people!

If we are dependent on the world’s idol systems, then we will be slaves to it walking with a heavy yoke tied around our neck, and constantly feel defeated and cheated.

Our Lord God is always zealous for His people and He wants to personally provide, protect, heal, comfort and rule if we allow and trust Him.

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego replied, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you. If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God whom we serve is able to save us. He will rescue us from your power, Your Majesty. But even if he doesn’t, we want to make it clear to you, Your Majesty, that we will never serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up.” Daniel 3:16-18

End of the law!

The disciples were astounded. “Then who in the world can be saved?” they asked.

Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” (Mark 10:26-27 NLT)

Until Jesus made this statement, His disciples didn’t understood that Jesus is the end of the law and there is not even a slim chance to get in apart from this Provision God made.

There is a time in everyone’s life where all our religious hopes will be shattered and then the authentic hope sets in – which will never be taken from us! This is called salvation.

Gospel of Jesus Christ is nothing but a shocking truth that we are wasting time by beating ourselves and others with man made rules and old wives’ tales instead of trusting the Way God made by the sacrifice of His own Son Jesus Christ Who died for our sins and resurrected to make us righteous.

Let’s put an end to stories and begin new life in Christ!

I know what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way of getting right with God by trying to keep the law. For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God. Romans 10:2-4
