Victory belongs to Him!

The horse is made ready for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the Lord. Proverbs 21:31

Good morning, friends. 

David, the youngest son of Jesse, a shepherd was sent by his father to bring back the news of his brothers, who were the soldiers serving in the army of Saul. When David went, all he could see was a giant Goliath who roared like a lion that his entire army would surrender if someone would fight against him boldly and kill him, but if he fails then the entire kingdom would be his army's. No one dared to go against him in fear, including the first king of Israelites, Saul. 

David was a very young one, but when he saw an uncircumcised man shouting at the Lord's children he asked who he was to defy the army of the living God. He went up to Saul and said that he would go fight against Goliath. When Saul questioned him how he would be doing this being so young, he didn't hesitate to reply that he has always killed lions and bears when he took care of his father's sheep. He didn't stop there. He also added that the Lord who saved him from the paws of those wild beasts would rescue him from Goliath.

He didn't take any of the weapons the king gave him. Instead he just took a sling and five stones. Goliath laughed at him. But you all know what happened. Yes, David proclaimed boldly, "You have come with spear and javelin. But I come with the Lord's strength. I'll kill you and everyone will know that it is the Lord who saves. It is not by the spear or by the javelin, but by Him, because the battle is His."

When Goliath approached him, he took a stone and slung it and struck the forehead of the Philistine. With one shot, Goliath was dead. 

Was it not amazing? Do you think you're struggling with your own problems today? Never mind, because it is not your battle. It is His. He will gain victory on it. No one can stand against the Lord Almighty. The situation I'm writing this is very difficult, my friend. I feel like I'm not fit for the role I'm playing in my project. But whenever I think of giving up on it, it is only the Lord's strength that sustains me and allows me not to give up. Then He reminds me of all that He has done. On November 27 I completed my four years of work in my company, but I never realized it because of my busy schedule. When I got an email from my batch mate wishing everyone, I was reminded that I've been working for 4 long years with nothing out of my knowledge. Not only in work, but in everything I've seen God's hand. He never let me down in front of others. He is always good to me. When I think of His goodness and mercies, I don't care about my potential, be it really small, I should not mind it. When I'm weak, He is strong! Amen? Only then I can boldly say, "It is not by my strength nor by my power, but by Him." David never was used to spears and javelins which were mandatory those days for a battle. But all he had was, 5 stones and a sling. Moses didn't have anything except a stick. But God used those simple things and proved that He is mighty. 

You serve the same Lord today. His power the same yesterday, today and forever. Don't give up! Your Lord is with you and He will lead you to victory. 

Be blessed and be a blessing! P.S: This is the first Today's Word of God I'm sending from my brand new laptop. I've reserved the laptop afresh to first send God's Word. God enabled me to send this today. :)

Be Beautiful!!!

And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased. Hebrews 13 : 16
This is a great story that I have read on the internet. 

When the house lights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her son was missing. She took him to the concert to show her appreciation toward his progress on the piano lessons. Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway on stage. In horror, the mother saw her little boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit, keep playing.” Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running descant. Together, the old master and the young novice tra…

When love touches you!

Warm greetings!! I have been quite busy with my little one. Yes, I have been blessed with a baby girl after a wait of more than 3.5 years and she is 3 months old today, by the pure grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Please keep her (Janice) in your prayers.
“Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth so that you have sincere love for each other, love one another deeply, from the heart.“ 1 Peter 1: 22
As I read this verse, this morning, I was carried away in my own thoughts as to how I can love from the depth of my heart. Is it even possible? Peter once behaved as an unfaithful one to Jesus to whom he was so close for about 3.5 years, when he denied Jesus to the core. He even cursed him as he was scared for his own life, and now it is quite funny to hear about deep love from such a person, by the way. J
After my baby girl was born, to be honest, I could not say if I really loved her. Because my mind was completely occupied by recovery, long days and nights, sleep deprivat…

God of second chances!

For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1 : 37
Do you feel that you are going nowhere just because you find yourself stuck with things that bother you? Then this is absolutely for you.
Yesterday, I was surprised to see Siddhu smiling at me early in the morning at around 6:20 AM.  He is 5 years old now and I live in his home as a paying guest. He held my hand and took me downstairs to show me a thick piece of paper on which he had cut and pasted Angry Birds’ green pigs. (Angry Birds is a game in which the players use a sling shot to launch the birds at pigs, with the intent of destroying them.) He had cut these out of the fruit gummies wrapper I had given him the previous day. He also colored the entire sheet of paper in green. While I stood, surprised to see how cute that was, he again took me to the kitchen, opened a cupboard, and gave me a yellow fruit gummy. He had never done that before. I told him that I hadn’t even brushed my teeth yet. He replied, “That’s fine. Take it up …
