Seek Him first!

I love them that love me: and they that in the morning early watch for me, shall find me. Proverbs 8 : 17

Good morning, friends.

I love listening to songs when I am about to sleep. I have lots of Don Moen's songs in my mobile phone and I love hearing them again and again. So by the time I get up in the morning, sufficient charge will not be there in the battery. So as soon as I get up, I've to charge the battery. If I fail or if I feel lazy to do it, I've to do it in my office. Sometimes I forget to bring my charger. Or I won't be able to charge it at all, because of various other reasons. But when I think of client calls, I regret for being lazy. Now-a-days, I don't forget charging the battery in the morning.

God reminded me something from it. Proverbs 8 : 17 says, "Those who seek me early in the morning, shall find me". Friends, the Lord clearly says that He needs us in the early morning. He longs for us to come into His presence as soon as we wake up. But if we ignore His word, and if we try to do it later, we may not be able to find time in our BUSY schedule. Even if we have Bible software in the mobile, or lots of websites to read the chapters in the Bible or even if we have small handy Bible in our hands, we fail to read it and pray when we keep postponing and finally end up only in a guilty feeling that we didn't seek God. (I know many of us don't even have that guilty feeling.) It is necessary that we should spiritually get charged before we leave our home. Remember every day is a perfect gift from the Lord, which we get unconditionally. If suppose God make it a conditional blessing, that if you don't spend at least half an hour or one hour with Him, you won't be able to walk at all for the entire day, how many of us would go out of our home? But our God is really awesome and decent enough and he doesn't force anyone to come to Him. He just whispers and not shouts. It is up to you to choose whether you'll listen to it or ignore it.

'You are my strength, when I'm weak' song has this line. 'Seeking you as a precious jewel..' Are you seeking Him as a precious jewel? 'Come into His presence with thanksgiving in your heart and give Him praise'.

Jesus' Word 1 and 2 on the cross

Hi all,

Friends, as this is the Holy week, let us see something about what Jesus spoke when He was on the cross. Yesterday we had a meeting where we shared the Word of God based on these seven Words. There can be n number of emails that can be sent. But I try to make things short. Read a verse and then take a break and then proceed, if it is too long.

Word 1:

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” Luke 23:34

The people who shouted, “Hosannah!” and who prepared Him way on Palm Sunday, started shouting, “Nail Him on the cross” a few days later. He was beaten up like anything. People spitted on Him. They slapped Him. They made lot on His garments. They made Him bear a heavy cross. He was completely ill-treated by them.

Jesus – is the one who forgives the sins of the people. The primary purpose of Jesus to leave the place of the highest glory to the worst world is to forgive our sins. He insisted the same when He was on the cross when He was completed rejected and despise…

The Alphabet Prayer

“Now then go, and I, even I, will be with your mouth, and teach you what you are to say.” Exodus 4 : 12

Good morning. I was deeply burdened to share you a message for which I searched a short story. Unbelievably, God allowed me to read this story and yes it conveys exactly what I wanted to share today. I bet you would be inspired by this story. Every child comes with the message if you carefully notice what they do. Here is the story for you.

A little shepherd boy was watching his sheep one Sunday morning and he heard the bells of the church ringing. And watching the people walk along the pasture where he was, he happened to think to himself, “I would like to communicate with God! But, what can I say to God?” He had never learned a prayer. So, on bended knee, he began to recite the alphabet. Repeating this prayer several times, a man passing by, heard the boy's voice and peaked through the bushes. He saw the young boy kneeling with folded hands, eyes closed, repeating the alphabet.…

It is unfair!

Do not grieve; the joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:9
Good morning, friends.
During our New Year service when we were asked to share the testimonies, people shared how God has been good to them. It was such a delight to hear from those who experienced God’s hand in their lives. One girl made a statement when she testified the Lord. “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from the depth of my heart for all the good things He has done in my life.” The catchy thing to my ears was “It is unfair if I do not thank Him from my heart.” What an awesome statement that is!
I just think of how many thanks we normally say to people around us. If a person holds the door open for us, we thank them. If the cashier gives away the receipt for our purchase, we thank them. When the waitress serves the food, we thank them. When the team members do a fantastic job, we thank them. When the conductor gives the ticket, we thank them. When someone gives a ride to the office, we thank them. We can add n nu…
