In His time!

Humble yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 1 Peter 5 : 6

Good morning. Let us read more about EAFLU from the next post. Today I wanted to share something about His perfect time.

We had 'Chennai Hope Festival' on 21st - 24th, this month. It was conducted by Franklin Graham and his team from USA. It was such a wonderful festival through which the Lord touched many lives. I too attended it three days. On the first day, when I reached my room, the time was 11:15 PM. There was no bus service to my place. I really got scared. But I believed that the Lord would protect me. And He did and I reached home safely by a share auto.

The second day, I didn't stay there till the end as I didn't get bus last night. When Franklin Graham declared the altar call, those who gave their hearts to Christ started going towards the platform, where as others started leaving to their home. I too stood up, but Franklin Graham said to everyone, "Please don't leave. That may hinder others who ought to respond to the altar call." So I sat for a few more minutes. After that I visited a book stall, where I was able to see many books at cheaper rates. But as there was a huge crowd, I again started walking towards the entrance. I thought how I would get a bus to my place.

It's really difficult for anyone to find someone they know among 35000 - 40000 people. But to my surprise, I saw my friend who came along with her family. Then I waved my hands at her and called her. Then they helped me reach home very safe, as they came there in their car.


I couldn't stop thanking God for what He has done to me. Here the important thing is the delay. If I had left as soon as I planned to leave, again it would have been so tough for me to reach my room alone. If these two delays can bring such a great safe journey, imagine how great are all our delays!! A baby has to stay silent till his/her mother delivers. Israelites had to travel 40 long years to enter into the promised land Canaan. It took many years for Joseph to see his visions come true. 1 Peter 5 : 6 clearly tells us that God would exalt us if we stay under His mighty hand. When? In His time!!! Do you believe that our God is a mighty God, King of Kings and the Lord of Lords? Then stay patiently until He delivers you and fulfills His promise, for He never works sooner or later. In His perfect time, He would bring everything to pass. Hallelujah! You and I just have to thank God for all the delays, for He is preparing the best for us!

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…
