Replace IT!

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6,7

Hi friends,

Good morning. I many times wonder why I don’t change the subject to Monthly Word of God. :) I know our God is a God who speaks to our hearts all the time, not on a specific day and time. 

I’m very happy. You know why? Because I have severe headache. :)  Wondering why this fellow is happy for headache? That’s because I got no sleep. It is 12.50 AM here in Nashville when I started typing this message. When King Ahasuerus got no sleep there came deliverance to the people of God. The next time when you roll over and over on your bed, thank God for He is going to bring deliverance to the you and your people. :)

This week is a busy week for me which starts with code review. I have no idea how it would go. I think I would have gotten this headache just because of that. But somehow I started to pray to God about everything the Lord reminded me of.

In the morning, I listened to a message from Pastor Jim of The Joy Church. He preached about replacing worry with ‘prayer and petition with thanksgiving.’ When Bible says something it really means it. Though I have many many questions about everything, as I started praying with thanksgiving, the peace of God rested on me. I don’t have understanding of how things are going to be alright, but God’s peace rested on me, because now I know I’ve surrendered almost all the things which bothered me a lot.

I thanked God for every person the Lord has brought into my life starting from my fellowships till the new people I’m meeting here in Nashville. As a friend I know many of their tough situations they go through. I prayed that God would meet all their needs and use them mightily. Now I have such a relaxed mind.

People of God, it’s easy to give thanks when we see positive things going on. But only God’s children can give thanks when nothing is going right. It’s only because we surrender our inabilities to our Omnipotent God. I am sure I would share many amazing testimonies when God answers every prayer.

Are you having something in your heart that still bothers you? Take a break for a few minutes and go somewhere where you find a place to pray. Just pray about the things which Lord reminds you about and come back with His peace. Strongly believe that you would see and hear wonderful breakthroughs in every area that you committed to Him. Please be reminded that you didn’t share all the burdens to any mortal man, but to the Living God because of whom you and I can face tomorrow.

Have a blessed week ahead!

  1. I believe that when we wakeup in the middle, that means God is expecting us to pray. The prayer that we pray during the midnigths are very powerful and I believe that God expects those prayers from Childrens like us who walks closely with Him.

    I usually get up at 5 and then pray. But in the past 2 to 3 days I woke up at around 2 AM but I did not pray rather I drank water and then went to sleep. If that happens again I am not gonna sleep,I believe that God is awakening to pray.
    So I believe that if we woke up at the middle lets go to His presense to hear from our Almighty.

    God Bless You

  4. Dear sis, One thing that I learnt is to Praise GOD at all times, whether THE LORD answers my prayer or not. I started praising the LORD for all my unanswered prayers too, for I know DELAYS ARE NOT DENIALS!!!! Amen...

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…
