You are engraved!!!


“Behold! I have engraved you on the palms of My hands!” Isaiah 49:16

Good morning, friends.

2 days ago, I went to a shopping mall with my friend. I bought snacks from KFC and paid the bill with my credit card. We finished eating, and threw away the trash in the trash bin, and walked to another shop to buy raw chicken. When we were at the billing counter, I realized that I lost my credit card. I was praying to God that either I threw the credit card into the trash or it should be in the hands of a good person. When I called the bank’s customer care department, they wanted me to tell them my credit card number. But I had been too lazy to learn, or document, my credit card number. So I was not able to deactivate it immediately. I tried retrieving the details online, but the internet connection was not cooperating. It took nearly one hour for me to deactivate it. I was worried a lot because buying expensive items using the credit card in such a big mall is so easy. But when I checked the credit card statement online, I was surprised to see that nobody had used it until I deactivated the credit card. 

I don’t know what happened to my credit card or who found it, but I am sure that it is my God who prevented anyone from using it for one hour. I had no control over the lost credit card. I had to call out to Him and surrendered the situation into His powerful hands. The Lord listened to my prayer and answered it. Listen, this blog is not actually about my credit card’s protection, but about something which is very true and more useful for you.

I have lot of questions in my heart and I have been worrying about them all recently. Whatever I do with my own strength fails miserably. I do not have control over anything. Day by day I grow weary, worrying about these matters that bother me. Are you, too, feeling the same today? Then this is for you. 

The above incident reminded me of how God controls situations. It doesn’t matter what the problems are, or who creates those problems in your life, or how weak you are to deal with them, as long as you surrender them in to His hands. The Lord says, “See, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands; your walls are ever before Me.” Pour out your heart to Him today. The matter that concerns you concerns Him too. So cheer up. You may not have the answers to all your questions, but you know the One who holds you in His hands also has answers to all your questions. The One who has the answers also knows how to bring them to pass. Remember, the problems that we cannot control, are the problems that are in His control, because we are on the palm of His hands.

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…
