“It is through the Lord’S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.
Theyare new every morning; great is Thy faithfulness”-Lam 3:22,23
Daily god gives us his grace and mercy. Who ever seeks His mercy , will receive it. Jacob wrestled with God till morning. In the early morning God blessed him and gave new name “Israel”. From then onwards his life was blessed . wrestling of Jacob in morning can be compared to our “Morning praise & prayer”. When we seek God early He will bless us, deliver us from captivity more than all we receive Grace and Mercy required for that day, Hence we must seek God daily. Let God give us Grace to seek Him early morning..

2.God will carry you even at your old age (grey hairs)- means at old age spiritually God will enable us to live a holy life pleasing God.

4. God delivers you– two meanings 1.delivering us from all trouble’s. 2.final deliverance from this world- rapture.

“Then one poor widow came and threw in two mites, which make a quadrans.”
He(Jesus Christ) called His disciples to Himself and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you that this poor widow has put in more than all those who have given to the treasury;for they all put in out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all that she had, her whole livelihood.” -Mark 11:42-44
Jesus Christ was watching how people were giving money into treasury. Rich gave much, but this widow put two mites into treasury. Jesus Christ would have felt happy of that widow’s two mite. Hence He highlighted that widow’s offering.
Some times we may be in a situation of financial crisis, our friends or people close to us may ask us for money . we may say no to them. We may say to God ” I have only small saving, which is not sufficient for my need. Sorry God, I can’t lend money to him”. But our God will not be pleased by our answer. What he expects is we must help them. He knows if we have much money we will surely lend them. But God wants to check (test) us, do we really have a helping nature . In most of times we fail. When we like that widow help others with our small contribution, surely God will Bless us. Let God give us Grace to help others.

“insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks and those who were vexed with unclean spirits; and they were healed, every one.” Acts 5:15-16
As Jesus promised “he who believes in me will do Greater things than me” was fulfilled in Peter’s life. The very shadow of peter healed many sick people. Interesting thing is, Apostle Peter’s shadow could heal sick. We may be a unworthy vessel to proclaim God’s word, but God will make us a Worthy vessel , Bless us and use us a blessing to others. Let God give us grace to make us honourable vessel.
” The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.” Psa 34:10
“And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.”. – Jonah 3:10
Nothing is impossible, above verses says that God repented and changed His mind not to punish the people of Nineveh. Jonah 3: 5-19 says that all the people of Nineveh fasted and prayed. Unique thing is even animals were also made to fast by King’s order. God heard their prayer and forgave them.Even our life may be in a difficult situation, so that no can help, or change our life, with our own effort we can do nothing. But when we earnestly seek God, fast and pray, God will change our life, he will bless us beyond our imagination, He will counsel us and lead us in path of righteousness. Let God give us grace to sincerely seek Him.
