Today with Jesus
- Today’s Bible verse
“ He lifted me out of the pit of despair and out of the mud
and the mire. You let me stand on a rock with my feet firm.”(Psalm 40:2)
There is no mess and pit so deep in the life of people God cannot fix it and reach it.
A story of a woman more than 200 times raped through 5 years to 18 but the hand of Jesus has reached at her!
We make life a mess and make suffering too deep and mind so desperate seems no way to fix it, reach it and lift it. Only Jesus, the resurrected can do it and he will do it. Desperately and overwhelmingly believe in him and he is faithful at the core. He never ever leaves any of his creation in a mess and despair for his
creation is perfect and in order. Family is supposed to be the safest place on earth and the parents are the sanctuary of protection for the life of children. Even that concept and reality is in doldrums. Parents are becoming the perpetrators and the children are the prey and victims of abuse , physical, mental and spiritual even at the bottom of rapes at homes. And the culprits move in the society with out any remorse and repentance by leaving the children at the bottom of the pit. mess of life, depression and despair. Fear, lack of loving trustful workable support make the pain of
abuse more acute and hopeless. No, there comes the loving hand of Jesus to lift you up from any problems with a soft voice but courageous and strong.. “So I spoke the message as he commanded me, breath came to the bodies. They all came to life and stood up on their feet.” (Ezekiel 37:10). Even the dry bones, listen to the word of the lord and get flesh and life.
It is the remarkable testimony of Joyce Meyer the prominent, celebrated, inspirational, televangelist, broadcasted 350 TV stations and 450 radio stations all over the world.” I have shared the testimony of how I think it is time to say what really happened because that word ‘Abuse’ does not really explain what I went through and what my father(biological) did to me was rape. I was raped at least 200 times,” said the Meyer leaving the audience stunned. “ I share the story of my life to people that there is no mess that God cannot fix, there is no pit so deep that God cannot reach His hand. And lift you out of it- if you will only believe in Him,” said Meyer. Desperation I had married a man who turned to be a thief and a habitual cheat who chased after other women and was generally a criminal. He left me to go. I left the marriage and married Dave Meyer, my husband of almost 44 years, and we have 4 children. She sys,” Never let you past because your identity, because God can do for one for person He can do for you- if you will believe.”
“ But Amnon(half brother) wouldn’t listen to her, and since he was stronger than she(Tamar) was, he raped her.”(2 Samuel 13:14). “So at Absalom’s signal they murdered Amnon.”(2 Samuel 13:29) Let the humbug parents shiver- all the nasty henious crimes to your wards are going to proclaim through the social medias and the great judgement is at your door!
Prayer: Jesus, we pray for all the raped victims. Let the children be safe at their homes. Let the parents be parents and should not scuttle their duties and responsibilities. Let your children be courageous and spare them from the clutches of bad parents, huabands, and wives. Justice be done in all fields. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

- 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.
