Before you assume anything from the title of the post, let me tell you that I am not a brand ambassador of Prestige pressure cookers in any way. :) Then why am I speaking about it? Well, the answer is, the Lord has been reminding me about an incident for the past few days and so I wanted to share it with you today.
I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. Psalm 77 : 11, 12
3 years ago, when I lived with my friends in Chennai, my mom visited us for a few days. She has always been a great help to us. For example, I had a lot of clothes to be washed, and we didn’t have a washing machine. So, after I left for the office, she washed and dried them all. Then, during a holiday, around noon, she was cooking rice for me in a pressure cooker. When it was almost time for the cooker to whistle she had moved a little farther and started arranging my clothes inside a duffel bag. In the meantime she saw the cooker explode. It was not a Prestige pressure cooker. I was very thankful to God that she was not near the cooker when it exploded. But from that time on, she insisted that I should only buy Prestige pressure cookers and nothing else.
Recently I had an issue with my Prestige pressure cooker, due to some mistakes on my part. So when I bought a new one, I specifically bought a Prestige pressure cooker, as I was reminded about my mom and what happened 3 years back.
This is a very good example of why parents must teach their children of the good things, along with the reason, and should live a life that their children cannot forget until their last breath.
In Psalm 77:11-20, the Psalmist, in spite of the issues he had, remembers what God had done in the past. This helped him overcome them. Remember, God alone is the strength of our heart. No one (Nothing) else can be our strength anytime. If you feel that the job you possess, or the knowledge you have, or even your family is your strength, then it is time for you to erase this from your heart, and let God be your strength. When you do this, you cannot avoid passing the same to others, and especially to your children. Because you cannot resist in passing on the best you have for them no, matter how evil you think you are. Please do not be ignorant of what God is doing in your lives. He is able to use you as a media and will do the same to others too.
May God bless you! Have a blessed day!
