Ready for the healing?

He said, "If you listen carefully to the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in his eyes, if you pay attention to his commands and keep all his decrees, I will not bring on you any of the diseases I brought on the Egyptians, for I am the LORD, who heals you." Exodus 15:26

March 27 is a special day in my life. Here is a quick recap of why it is special.

On March 27, 2011, I was admitted in a hospital in Nashville as I had a severe pain in my lower abdomen. The doctors told me that it could be due to cancer, kidney stones, bla bla… I was very shocked to hear that, as I was so far away from my family. Suddenly I felt like an orphan. I cried all day long. The doctors told me that the pain may come again anytime. But Jesus reminded me about this verse: Exodus 14:13. “Don't be afraid. Just stand still and watch the LORD rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again.”  To me, my Egyptian on that day was the pain. The world said that the pain may come again, but the Lord said it would never come again. You know what? The Lord won, as always! One full year has passed, and I have never experienced the pain again. Praise God!

Today when I read Matthew 9, I came across several types of healing. Verses 1-7 talk about the paralytic man who was carried by four men and was healed. Verses 18-19, 23-26 talk about the daughter of the ruler, who rose from the dead.  Verses 20-22 talk about the woman who was delivered from her bleeding ulcer that had plagued her for 12 long years. Verses 27-30 talk about the blind men who received sight. Verses 32-33 talk about a demon possessed man out of whom the demon was driven. The entire chapter talks about healing. But they happened in different forms.

The paralytic man was healed, and his sins were forgiven by the faith of the men who carried him. The daughter of the ruler was saved by her father’s faith even after she was dead. The woman was delivered from her long suffering by her own faith. In fact the power from Jesus came out from Him when the woman touched the edge of His cloak. The blind men got their vision because they believed that Jesus was able to do it.

The faith of the people, and the faith of their loved ones, healed them all. Do we have trust in Him? I saw a juice bottle wrapped by a label that says, “Trust me; I am good” in H-Mart two days ago. The Lord, who has done great and mighty things in our lives, so far is so good. We can always trust Him. Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. He has the same power He had in Matthew 9. We need to take a step in faith. Are we ready today?

May God bless you!

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…
