Reflections *15 – To God, Thanks is due

Image result for images of thanks to God

For mothers love and Fathers care
For food to eat and clothes to wear
For home and friend and answered prayer
I thank thee Lord
But most of all my thanks shall be
That on the cross of Calvary
The Saviour gave His life for me
I thank thee Lord.

An old Story: A little boy was so happy after drinking a glass of cold water on a hot day that he impulsively thanked the glass. ‘Don’t thank me ‘said the glass thank the tap where I came from’. So he thanked the tap and the tap said ‘Don’t thank me, thank the well and so he did that. Now the well replied ‘You should thank the rain and not me’ So he thanked the rain and the rain said ‘Thank the clouds and not me’. The clouds said ‘Thank the sun’ the sun said ‘Thank the ocean’ The ocean said ‘Thank the one who made me, the sun, the clouds, the rain, the well, and the man who made the tap and the glass’. Now the boy realized that everything he had came from God, and he profusely thanked God with all His heart.

God has innumerable ways to help us and reach us, but He is the source of all blessings. Many a times we thank the seen giver, but forget the unseen giver. Behind everything is the heart of our Loving Abba Father who longs to keep on blessing us as we keep on asking Him. Hallelujah!

Prayer: (Go through your life and thank Him with all you heart for His goodness and all that He has bountifully given you and experience His peace)

The Bible says in Rom 8:32 Since God did not spare even his own son but gave him up for us all, won’t God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else?

THE BIBLE: Read it everyday. It records all the victories that God has given you as a believer. Read it passionately to know your new position and inheritance in Christ.

Reflections *14 – Uncertainty is your Opportunity

Related image

He will never let go YOUR HANDS

He will never let go your hands
Jesus will never let go your hands
Though the storms may come
And the winds may blow
He will never let go your hand

Certainty means that you know for sure’ the next course of action. Uncertainty means just the opposite. You are not sure of the next course of action. You do not know what to do. As your heart ponders over the uncertainty, then you tend to consider the odds for and against you. As you think about the consequences a sudden fear grips you. The thought remains in your mind and gets you tensed up.

Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength  Is 26:4

Your ride away from ‘faith in God’ has already begun. This breaking away in your mind can be instantaneous and you loose all sound judgment. Before the roller coaster ride begins, you must right now.

Thank Him for the certainties
And Trust Him for the uncertainties.

Uncertainty is your opportunity to Trust in God.
Uncertainty is your opportunity to turn to God.
Uncertainty is His call to you.
What would you choose today?

Trust in Him, Turn to Him and Obey His call.

Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, Today no matter how bleak or uncertain things may look in my life I choose to trust in you and your love for me. I believe and confess with my mouth that my future is in your hands. Each passing day, grant me the grace to keep my eyes fixed upon you and believe in your Word, and not what the circumstances around me say. All because I ask in Jesus name. Praise the Lord.

The Bible says in Isaiah 26:3 – Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Reflections *13 – What are you saying Today

If I only TOUCH His garment, I shall be restored to health…….

In the 9th chapter of the book of Matthew, we read about a woman who had an uncontrolled flow of blood in her body for the last twelve years. Twelve years was a pretty long time. As she prepared for a close encounter with the King of Kings, she kept saying to herself.’ I will be healed, I will be healed and all I need to do is touch the garment of the Lord. And when she did so, without doubting she was not disappointed. So also, we will not be disappointed when we prayerfully approach the Lord in faith. She saw her healing before it happened, she spoke it and did what she decided to do. She declared ‘I will be healed’. This faith did not go unnoticed by the Lord.

So what are we saying today. To ourselves, to others around us. Let us remind ourselves

For she kept saying to herself, If I only touch His garment, I shall be restored to
health.    Mat 9:21

again that with God nothing shall be impossible. Let us release all the limits that We have set on God. Some times we tell our children’You are useless, and will never change’. We keep saying ‘It will never happen for me, I have always been a failure’. Today let us consciously focus our energies and our thoughts on the Lord. From now on let us speak in faith expecting things to happen. Let us speak life, let us speak hope for our children, family and all whom we come in touch with everyday. The Lord will see the faith in your words and the miracle will come forth. This one statement of faith that you make, can make all the difference in your life and in the life of others.

The lady wanted to be healed when she touched the garment and the Lord granted her healing according to her faith. She set the conditions and the Lord honoured it.

Prayer: Loving Heavenly Father, Forgive me for the times I have been rude, angry, and may have cursed others. Today I pray, that Lord you will bless them. From today grant me the grace to always encourage others and to speak life into every situation. Help me to speak in faith and see changes happening. All because I ask in Jesus name. 

Faith made whole

The Bible says in Mark11:24   For this reason I am telling you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe (trust and be confident that it is granted to you, and you will get it.

THE BIBLE: Read it everyday. It records all the victories that God has given you as a believer. Read it passionately to know your new position and inheritance in Christ.
