Today with Jesus
- Today’s bible verse
“People cry out when they are oppressed. they groan beneath the power of the mighty. Yet they don’t ask, Where is God my creator, the one who gives songs in the night”(Job 35:9-10)
If you search the” brokenness” in the dictionary you’ll get many different definitions. “Forcibly separated in to two or more pieces; break apart or sever by divorce; separation or desertion; have been violated being in the state of disarray, disordered, weakened; crushed by grief ,financially ruined, bankrupt; not functioning or out of order”. Can to relate this for your life situation?. Have you had in any time forced to ask “Why me”?.
Here you read the story of the Miracle mom- 31 year old, Janis Ollson a Canadian woman.
When she was pregnant with the second child the doctors diagnosed her with a rare bone cancer, chondrosarcoma. The treatment is to cut her in to half to get at the untreatable cancer, remove her leg, lower spine and half her pelvis. . Even she was told there was nothing the doctor’s can do more. She was hit in her breaking point. The cancer had spread through several bones, her pelvis, lower spine and a lot of muscle tissue. when she heard that the Mayo clinic surgeons in USA are ready to operate, then she felt, once anyone have kids they have no option except to go for surgery. She was thrilled and said “Somebody had a plan. It wasn’t hopeless”. 52 days she sent in the clinic. The surgeries were success. She is under remission now. . Then she went to the church on husband Darl’s arm to renew their vows with her two children. She said , her husband is the glue. She says she’s never dwelled on “Why me?” . “We don’t know when it started…. It’s not known why anybody gets it. There’s no cause for it, no genetic link, no cancer in her immediate family. “There’s some purpose to all this whether I know it or not,’ she said.
She is a wonderful witness for Jesus, still there are Jobs in 21 century !
Lord, we know now there is a purpose for all our pains and sorrows. Give us the power to withstand it and understand it. You are renovating and transforming our life fitted for you in our sorrows. Thank you Jesus. Heal us. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Your ever loving savant in Jesus

- Today with Jesus
“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
