John 14:27- “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
In this world we can buy so many comforts, luxuries but one thing we can’t buy is peace. Only God can give us peace. Jesus gave us His peace before He ascended to heaven. Hence when we come to Jesus we get true peace within our heart. Even though there may be problems around us, but still God will us peace. For worldly people they may not have any problems, they may not lack anything in their life but still they will not be having peace this is because they are away from Jesus. We may lack many things but our Jesus is all in all to us. When God is with us nothing else we need. He will lead us, guide us, provide us, care us, deliver us from all our problems. Let us go to Jesus “Prince of peace”.
1Co 15:57-” But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
By the blood of Jesus Christ
We get saved
We get baptized
We receive Holy spirit
We get grace to prepare for the second coming of Jesus Christ.
The very moment we say “Victory in the Blood of Jesus Christ” all devils trembles and become confused and powerless. In times of frightening situation when we are not able to pray, we must say “Victory in the Blood of Jesus Christ” repeatedly . this will make us bold and devil will run away. Let God give us Grace to pray.
2Timothy 1:12 “For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”
Apostle Paul said the above verses. He was sure that Lord Jesus Christ who called him, is able to preserve him until the day of redemption . God who have called us is able to preserve us until his coming (rapture). We need only to believe in Him. It is difficult to live a christian life but it is not difficult to believe in Jesus Christ. If a Christian says there is no trials or sufferings in their life, it only shows that they are far away from Jesus. Jesus will test our faith when are close to Him. If we suffer with Jesus , we shall also reign in His kingdom. The suffering Christian Life along with Jesus Christ makes life easy and beautiful. In suffering Christian life if we forget Jesus , then we will feel the suffering. Let God give us His everlasting Grace to endure this suffering and reign with Him in Eternity.
Isa 49:15 “Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.”
Our beloved ones may forget us but our creater God never forgets us. God have graven our names on His palms which cannot be erased. We in His mighty hands no one can pluck us away from Him. The greatest love on this world is the love of mother on her child.God reminds us even though mother may forget her child but He never forget us. It is we who forget the God many times. In times of trials we seek humanely help rather seeking God. Let God give us grace to trust only on Him.
John 19:30-” When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”
In most of times when God delays to answer our prayer we say ”why God has not done ?” That to me. Our request may be good job, house, good health, business, education, many things. There can be two reasons why God delays to answer 1. That is not God’s will 2. God is testing our faith on Him. But one thing is true most of time what we ask God belongs to this world, all are temporal things. We often forget eternity and worry about present temporary things. In the above verses Jesus Christ said “it is finished” shows that He have finished everything, He shed till His last drop of blood on cross for our sake. He have finished everything not only for our temporary life but for Eternal Life. “First seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then rest shall be added unto you” . Let us not say God have not done that or this, instead pray fervently and praise Him always so that we can receive His blessing.
“And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept.”- Gen 33:4
Jacob cheated Esau and took his birthright. He ran away to his uncle’s place. After 20 years he was returning to home (Canaan) with his family, cattle and wealth. Even after 20 years he was afraid that his bro. Esau will smite him. Hence previous night he wrestled with God got blessing by new name “Israel”. After meeting god receiving His mercy he met his brother.
The above verses shows the emotional reaction of Esau towards Jacob. Gen 33:4″ And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they wept. “One thing we can learn is Esau completely forgive his brother Jacob.
Even many years before we got saved, our works, talks, attitude would have hurt our own brother’s, sister, family, friends etc. After we got saved ,God would have forgiven our mistakes, but when we get an opportunity to meet them we need to ask forgiveness. That is what God expects from us. As Esau embraced Jacob, our Lord Jesus will embrace us when we meet him. Let God give us Grace and mercy…
