You are precious !!

” Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honourable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee, and people for thy life.” – Isa 43:4

You are very much precious in the sight of God. People may consider us least in our home, work place or studying place or even at church. But still God says you are honourable and precious in His sight.

Since we are redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ we are precious. We are preparing to inherit the eternal kingdom hence we are precious. We are in the last days of coming of Lord Jesus hence we are precious.

We have entered into a new year with many hopes , expecting many changes in our life, God will help us , He will strenthen us , give us enough wisedom, He himself will hold our hand and lead us.

As every year we come across we are nearing to second coming of Jesus Christ. But still His coming is delayed indicates,  that many millions of people need to know about Jesus and need to be saved, and all those who have saved need to be perfected to be caught in His coming. Let God be with all of us throughout this year..

“..the eyes of the Lord thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year ” – Deut 11:12

“Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep.” – 1Samuel 30:4

King David was very much disappointed when he returned to ziklak,  his two wives, daughters, sons,  wife and childrens of his soldiers were also taken as captive by amalekites.

His own men were about to stone him, because they were greatly distressed and grieved.  It was a hopless situation where no one can help except God.

David encouraged himself in the Lord his God, he enquired Lord , pursued the amalekites, defeated them, and recovered his two wives, daughters, sons, and all that was lost was recovered.  He also got the spoils of battle.  Like this God turned a failure to victory.

Even we may be in a situation where would have lost money, wealth, property. Our own friends would have insulted us and mocked us, because of our failures. We need not worry, there is a God , who will turn our failure into success. Perhaps in the sight of men, our present condition may be very poor, but God will never allow us to be in that situation, he will create a new way, for God to give a job, riches, wealth are easy things. There can be misunderstandings, broken relationship, where no one can help to reunite with family, but Our lord Jesus will help us to find a solution, God himself will solve all our problems. Do not loose hope, God will help us.

“Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: ” – Psa 144:1

Give first preference to God.

​”Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” – Psalms 51:10

 In Psalms 51 chapter we read about the confession of King David. He was convicted of sin with Bathsheba. Hence he with a broken heart seek  God for His forgiveness.  Here David ask God to create a clean heart and right spirit  in him. 

When people of Israel was in battle with their enemies , David being a King should have  been there in battle. But he was in palace at that time, this shows he was led by a wrong spirit,  which in turn led into a sin with Bathsheba. 

 This can be compare to our spirutual battle. During church hour we must go and attend church. If we do not go to church on Sundays, and go to some other place and spend time in vainly then we will get into trouble, this shows we are led by wrong spirit. Surely we will commit sin. Hence we need to be careful, attend Sunday worship , Bible studies . we must give first preference to God and seek him. The right spirit always urges us to attend church meeting. Let God give us Grace to seek him presence diligently. 

“Teach me to do thy will; for thou [art] my God: thy spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.” – Psa 143:10

The Lost Coin !

“Either what woman having ten pieces(coin) of silver, if she lose one piece(Coin), doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.”  Luke 15:8-9

This lost coin is we (I and you). Once we were lost in this world following things of this world. We didn’t know there is a living loving God Jesus Christ. As a coin is non living thing , there was no life in our  spiritual life. We were not content, in our education, job, money or family life. Nothing was not able to satisfy us, but when our loving Jesus found us, There came life in our lives, We got a peace, joy, satisfaction and true happiness that this world cannot give. Thank Jesus Christ our beloved saviour, who found us , saved us, made worthy to be with Him in eternity. Let us pray to God receive His Grace to be caught up in His coming…

Hope never dies

” I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” Psa 118:17

The above verses is a very beautiful versus. It hope to the people in hopeless situation. Our trial may be sickness, financial crisis, depression, exam failure, joblessness , anything may be our problem which drives us to end our lives, But we must not die, our hope, trust, faith in God will make us to succeed in our life. One thing we note here is, king David encourages in himself towards God. There may be situation where no one is there to encourage or comfort but still our Lord Jesus will strengthen and comfort us.
