“For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again,” – Proverbs 24:16

Today we think, “How I am going to stand firm until the end” such hurdles block many of us to be in backward not to be the disciples of Jesus Christ. “I am the child of Jesus” confession done in the midst of your family, friends boldly and suppose when he falls into the sin, all the other will mock me, thoughts block a man not to get rooted deep in Christ.


We must walk like Jesus. (1John 2:6) is true. But in some way in sometime we get stumbled is true that we must feel it. So, Apostle James remarks that “For we all stumble in many things” (James 3:2) includes himself. So, let us not cease our self with fear by seeing the stumbling what we have to do must be known to us. What is that? Suddenly jump and rise and continue the race. That’s all!

What God expects from us? that we have wrong notion about it. We think our self that “God expects we must be 100/100 perfections.” Truly that is not ...

“…For God has already accepted your works.” – Ecclesiastes 9:7

All the problems that we face in our life are not big as Goliath. When such big problems come, if we manage and overcome it, we get a thrill and satisfaction. It seems meaning in it. But our daily works in our daily life makes us dull. Everyday’s going to work; cooking, studying lessons all seem to be leavened. Everyday’s life seem to be burden and dull with a thought what big we had done in life.


When we read the life of men who had done great things for God or when we hear them, we will think what is our life? And will my daily life be useful to God/Lord? And such questions may rise.

We must not forget we are called to do big things for God. “Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1Corinthians 10:31). What does this verse tell about? When we do our small, small things for God He will accept as a perfume. Yes, God looks our small, small things done for ...

“They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing” – Psalm 92:14

My mother’s grandma Thangammal who was a widow was redeemed in her youth and lived as secret Christian for hundred years in Sivakasi. She was kind hearted and good natured to help others. Throughout night she stood on knees near one particular pillar of the house and prayed fervently for her children, family members and grandchildren and prayed each one by confessing their names for the salvation of each family. Through her prayer most of the members in our family are saved and living for God. And further God has engraced some of them to do ministry for God. We are the third generation of her today though we are diverted in many places we allot a particular day for fasting in prayer for the salvation of the family.


In the scripture there was a widow named Hannah. Though she was 84 years old she never left the temple but stayed on fasting, day and night and worshipped God. All of them those who waited for the redemption of Jerusalem talked about Him. Above all ...

“…in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;” – Genesis 26:4

A journey of a youth in the desert had been delayed due to serve seasons. What he had stored in the bottle the water got exhausted. When his tongue searched and longed for water on thirst his eyes got tired and his life suffered dryness. When the tongue for water in thirst his eyes noticed a hut! There the rotten pipe and near it in a vessel was green funguses water! And there the writings were written as, “If you pour this water and pump it you will get drinking water. And after thirst is over fill this vessel with water and go.” When he poured the little water and pumped, Aha! There was pure drinking water.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13

Goliath means “attracters of all towards him.” Goliath the Philistine stood opposite to Israelites in the battle with challenging. How the world had seen this Goliath, how Saul and David had seen him, and how God had seen him let us see here.


The world got amazed seeing his gigantic appearance, his helmet, armor dress and the weapon in his hand. It seemed impossible to fight with him and win the battle. In the sight of Saul, Goliath was a warrior from his boyhood. He is stronger and aged compared to David. So Saul thought that his military dress will give and protection to David. But in the sight of David Goliath was an uncircumcised man. He thought Goliath will be like a lion and bear.

But in the sight of God it seemed different. In His sight Goliath was neither a bear nor a lion! God made Goliath to confess before David who Goliath was when David went before him, Goliath said, “Am I a dog that you come to me with sticks?” that’s all! Yes, God ...

“…I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,” – Galatians 6:14

A question was asked to an elder, honest, faithful minister of God. “Hundreds of songs of yours are being voiced in all hamlets and nearby villages. And they have occupied high place in the midst of Christians mind. When your name which goes to the climax of fame when it is enquired with utterance to the pastors and believers all they remark, “You are a humble man” what is the secret behind it?” asked the reporters. The elder minister replied, “What is there in me to be exalted? Nothing, regarding my voice I do can speak big about to exalt. When I wished to join in the choir I was more commented and exposed to be with donkey voiced. All I have, belongs to God, I have nothing” said the Godly man.


St. Paul says, he will boast about the cross of Christ alone. This worldly wealth, position, boastfulness all are nothing before the cross of Christ but they are being as dust and garbage. “I consider all things as loss and dust and ...

Hello kids! How are you? Are you alright! You are special to father Jesus Christ. To whomsoever the needs are special you are more special to Jesus. Until you are kept healthy and safe alive is by the love of God. So, you should not forget to thank God daily.


There was a boy named Selvan, he will attend the Sunday school regularly. He will hear all the songs and stories carefully that are caught in the Sunday school. He will shed tears remembering the blood of Christ that was shed on the cross with thanks. He made a decision in his boyhood, “I will grow a big man and will do ministry for Jesus Christ.” The years passed very swiftly. Selvan with good marks finished his higher education. Many people thought delightfully Selvan will go to higher position.

Thus, whatever he desired he got it. Little by little he forgot Jesus. Good job, handful of salary, car facility all things made him to forget his boyhood love which he had upon Jesus Christ. One day ...

King Hezekiah ruled the kingdom of Israel. He did the righteous rule as what God wished. He was more pious and ardent for God. God blessed him. Suddenly he was affected by an incurable disease. So, he went to death bed condition. At that time God sends Prophet Isaiah, and said to him, “Set your house in order, for you shall die and not live.” Hezekiah heard this and prayed with tears. He opened all his heart to God. He confessed all his honesty, good things, and righteous life before God and prayed. God saw the tearful prayer of Hezekiah and pitied him and had mercy upon him. God called again Prophet Isaiah to tell good news to King Hezekiah. God healed King Hezekiah and increased his span of life to 15 years extension. And further, “I shall deliver you and your city from the hands of King Assyria” had God promised through Prophet Isaiah. Finally, Hezekiah’s tears got a sign from God for that.

“Against You, you only, have I sinned …done this evil…” – Psalm 51:4

The creations of God are wonderful. Let us learn one thing from the fish that was created on the 4th day of creation. God created the fish to be united in the water. When it is taken out of water it starts to toss. How a fish can’t live outside of water when it is taken out from the water so a believer can’t live holy without God or with being left from God. The reason is that the sin separates both man and God. Yes, when a fish is not in a natural state its body tosses. But a man tries and starts to act even in his unnatural state. This we can see through the lives of two persons from the Bible.


Acting Man: Naaman who got cure from Elisha prophet paid his offerings to him. And Elisha refused to get it. But Elisha’s servant Gehazi mind and heart was upon the materials. Gehazi told lie and got all the materials and kept in his house and stood before Elisha as if he did not know anything. ...

“…You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.” – Psalm 23:5


 


“My cup runs over” there were the words that had spoken / bursted out from the depth of the heart of David. God anointed the shepherd David as king in the midst of his brothers. This 23rd chapter of Psalm is fondly read by all ages of people. He recalls my vessel, as his heart overwhelming in the love of God.


 


David’s heart had been the over flowing vessel. Thus, means we can know there are various vessels in the heart of men as empty vessel, half-filled vessel and filled vessel. 1. To have ready heart always. No peace, no good health, no restfulness…. are with such emptiness bearing vessel. 2. Having somehow, we live, are called unsatisfied, half-filled vessel. 3. The filled vessels will have enough anointments strength and power; but they don’t bring any blessings to others. 4. The filled overwhelming vessel is equaled to King David and Joseph the dreamer.

“And whoever of you desires to be first shall be slave of all.” – Mark 10:44

In today’s Book World the exposed and published title books are in the leadership. Most of the people desire the leadership quality is the reason for the most choice.  Those books teach us quality, governorship, active skill and administrative so, on. Henri Nouwen the professor in university writes about leadership quality. “How many of the people consider you are important? Is not the question; but it is whether your labor is useful to others, is the question. Look at Jesus. Instead of His leadership being upon the people, He regularly went afterwards the people and did service well. Doing the service to people was Jesus primary quality as leadership than administrating the people” says Henri Nouwen.

When Stanly Jones states, he says, “Extracting and executing 200 persons to work is not a great man, he who submits/commits to serve for the 200 persons is the great man.” In today’s meditation for scripture we read Jesus Christ’s humility of washing the legs and rubbing their feet. Washing others leg is not the matter, but touching others legs and ...

“Blessed is she who believed, for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.” – Luke 1:45


 


It is my habit of claiming the promise of God from the beginning of the year. In 1995 on January 1st God gave me promise, “I will be with you.” I daily confessed the promise to God and prayed. In the month of May as relatives together we had been to mountainous resort place in Andhra Pradesh. In climax of the mountain there was a cement footpath in that place.

There is a war between two nations. The leaders of the countries/nations command for the involvement of people in war.  People left their works, families, healthy life, peaceful house and went for the selection of soldiers to the army.  When the enemies attack was severe, many departed for war in military in the midst of their wives and children shedding tears.  None called it foolish.  People who fear for military joining will be considered cowardice.  No mother will worry for her son discontinuing the studies in half and joining the military as foolishness. Some of them those who go for war may return, lame, blind with lost sight, mentally affected to insanity. But even they may face death in the war.  Their names will be written on the list of nobility of battlefield soldiers as patriots.  Their obeying the captain’s commandment will be compulsory.  A person can’t expect that they got the remembrance of their wives and go home to see.  And even they can’t drift down the gun and go to see and kiss the child playing with ...

Is your life you will be busier with hurry berry things? Everyday works, kitchen works, trades, children caring may fill your daily schedule.  So, we think that if we don’t have much responsibility to me I/we will spend more responsibility with God.

 

But C. S. Louis, Christian analyst says, “Nobody had been so busy and hurry berry like Jesus Christ.”  He ministered in the carpentry shed, roads, and meetings in the peace less and mob situation.  We read this about Capernaum and Jesus Ministry, “In evening, when the sun had set, they brought to Him all who were sick and those who were demon-possessed.  And the whole city was gathered together at the door.  Then He healed many who were sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons…” (Mark 1:32-34).  Thus, though Jesus had the tiredness in the previous day, he went to the private place for personal prayer. He got the strength from the father to do the ministry in the busy gatherings.  He never uttered he had no time.  Jesus ...

“…where are those accusers of yours?” – John 8:10

 

Suppose you are clearly seeing the fault in another person. Truly seeing that is wrong. Questions may arise in you that, why not we inform his wrong to others? Why-not we tell his wrong to others to teach him a lesson? How can he do such wrong thing? Such questions do rise in you.

 

Don’t be in hurry, be patient.  Just think yourself that you have done the wrong and you are a convict, and when a person tells about you to many persons, will you like that? Will you accept on a person who wishes to teach you a lesson? Certainly you will not be willing such things.  When a person comes to you and informs you tenderly ask for change (repentance) you will call him consciously good man.  When you see the faults and wrongs in others why not you stand as a good man?

“Those who regard worthless idols forsake their own Mercy.” – Jonah 2:8


 


The people of Ninevah did many sins and ran towards the judgment of God. But was unwilling to destroy them, sent Prophet Jonah to give a chance for their repentance. And without obeying God and without desire to go to Ninevah he travelled to Tarshish in a ship. In his heart he had the thought he runs out of the presence of God. Can anybody run out of His presence? When we fly (climb) towards sky there do He exists. Even when we lie in the grave; bottomless pit there do his hands will catch us which the Psalmist narrates in his Psalms. Jonah did not have the knowledge of God! We cannot be hidden or forgotten for a minute at least from his presence or sight. The mighty God watches like CCTV camera every one of us throughout 24 hours as if he keeps an eye upon us.


 


When a man thinks to leave God’s presence what will happen? The thing that happened to Jonah will ...

“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” – Pro. 15:1

 

Some years ago, the North Korea did the “Hydrogen Bomb’s Test” not only shocked the neighbors but also the worldly nations.  The reason is the hydrogen bomb is many times powerful than Atom bomb. The atom bomb that was thrown upon Hiroshima and Nagasaki by America was more powerful and horrible during World War II. But now the North Korea had tested a hydrogen bomb and tells that one nation can be spoiled into astray.  In the near future days, there will be discourses on the titles “Which one is the worst either Atom bomb or Hydrogen bomb” this will not be under surprise.  And more than these two instruments that we human beings have is more dangerous it is our tongue.

 

One match stick is enough to destroy one big forest.  Thus, one tongue is enough to destroy many and destroy the life span of man and will cast a man into hell.  Apostle James in his book/epistle writes very clearly about tongue.  Tongue being a small organ will talk ...

In a country there was a king and queen. The king loved the queen. But the queen did not understand love of the king but she used to be in more temperance of anger and fretting.

“Men ate angels’ food; He sent them food to the full.” – Psalm 78:25


 


In the days of Old Testament period, God provided graciously and freely in the early morning for his people fresh manna in the wilderness. It was the bread of angels like and sweet paniyaram (Bread) and sweet honey. This people of Israel got the privilege of no other nation’s people obtained. Because not they were good; but it was fully of God’s grace! God was more merciful upon them so He showered the Manna early in the morning. But, see! In the beginning and at first, they thought Manna as blessings later despised, belittled it, and is narrated in the scripture (Num.11:6). Thus, though they murmured very often the Manna was not exhausted throughout their wilderness journey. Just think about our God’s uncountable grace!

“…Abraham… was called the friend of God.” – James 2:23


 


In this world there is no man without friends. In this industrial period there are friends who live in foreign countries beyond the seas. Our Lord God above all others calls us friends. When we are called “God’s friends” some of the scriptural persons come to our memory.


 


First among them was Enoch. Yes, daily God and Enoch used to walk. Then God took Enoch and dropped him in the house. One day both of them went far away talking to each other. When Enoch told God, “I have to return home”, God told, “We have come very far. From here your house is far away. My house is near. You come to My house.” said God and took Enoch with him. Then Enoch was not seen (Gen. 5:24). About 40 years before when my Sunday school teacher told method yet seems fresh in my recollection of mind. Yes, God loved Enoch.

It was a carpenter’s wood items kept shed. The carpenter was out on some work. No sooner he went out, all the tools joined together for a discussion to each other by criticizing one another who is greater among them. Looking at the hammer other tools began to tell that, “You sound more/shout more and you must not be here.” The hammer seeing the chisel said, “only the chisel to be driven from here, he attacks all of us with his sharpness.” The chisel accused the measurement scale in the anger, “He always measures everyone that we must be like this and like that.” The measurement scale accused the screw driver that “It must be removed from the unity. The screw driver winds up the others.” Lastly all the tools saw the jack plane and remarked “You do the shallow work. No hard work.” They began to criticize each other. Suddenly they heard the sound of the carpenter entering into the room and they kept quiet. The ...

One man has love of money and other man has lust of women and another man has covetousness.

He kept his trust upon God and walked in His ways. Daily he used to pray without fail. God made Daniel a wise man. Daniel was the chief wise man in Babylon who is wiser than other wise men. One day the king gave the important responsibility to Daniel. So other wise men got envy against Daniel. Though you see the better studying first ranking skillful students, you must not get envy. Children! The envy will one day spoil you. You must destroy the envy first. Do you understand? They thought to destroy Daniel. He was courageous and he did not do any wrong. Nobody can charge or convict him for anything. So, they thought what to do. Daniel desired to please God more than the king. He was the man of ...

Taking a person to the hospital one who is caught in an accident is more essential. But before that, stopping the blood oozing out from the body is the primary essential first aid. In our spiritual life accidents and wounds may happen. Occasionally we get wounded for the un-existing blames for un- existing things. When it happens to us through the believer friends we are deeply wounded. For such mind-full wounds the first aid is more essential. Let us see below as follows how it is.

“…keep yourselves from idols…” – 1 John 5:21


 


When Jesus Christ was born, in those days the kingdom of Rome was spread all over the world. The characters of these Romans craftsmanship were more skilled in sculpture. If we happen to see the archeological discoveries of Roman king’s sculpture, those crafts will be more astonishment to us. In imaging of a person as sculpture they are the efficient sculptor personalities! When they chop the face in the marble stone, they are capable of chopping the eye brow as hair, to that much they are efficient and skillful.


 


But see an astonishment matter. Jesus Christ lived in the world, died, resurrected and ascended to heaven. Thousands of people went to see him directly. The disciples wrote the gospels about Jesus. We read Matthew wrote gospel and Mark wrote gospel. But there is no drawing was picturized as Jesus image or particular person sculptured. Jesus image or idol, why? The disciples knew this.

Have you anytime thought about your body? Have you meditated God’s astonishment work about the body?

 

Generally, when we are injured in our body we cry, it pains.  When we are hungry, we tell, I am hungry and serve the meals. Except this we don’t think about anything important than this. Shall we look at such many un-thought able things today?

 

Generally, and regularly we breathe 1050 times in an hour.  In a day we breathe more than 25,000 times; day and night the lungs function as machine. God has made it naturally without our self-efforts.  If we fail to breathe continuously for 10 minutes the death will be certain.  Our 25,000 breathe are in the hands of God.

But the man who had the food said, “Don’t lust other’s things” and started to eat turning to other side.

“Therefore, do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.” – Hebrews 10:35

 

In a man’s life courage is the essential one.  God provides this courage to us. Especially the courage comes out of belief in Christ and confidence.  This in Ephesians 3:12, St. Paul quotes, “in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.”

 

David killed the lion with God given courage.  Daniel spent the night in the den of lion. Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-Nego walked in the seven times folded fire.  Job lost all his wealth, health and relatives and all things; but they did not yet lose their courage, because they knew whom they believe.  They did not lament at their situations as if they would become insane. Nor they spoke any opposite words.  Their eyes were looking at the Lord.  God gave reply and gave the strength in their souls and encouraged them.

 

The Holy Blood that Jesus Christ had shed on the cross is precious.  We get courage through the blood of Jesus.  Whatever may be the fear if we confess the name of Jesus ...

“Arise, cry out in the night…Lift your hands toward Him For the life of your young children.” – Lamentations 2:19


 


When things get confused in the life of children, we curse ourselves and grieve our self. “Alas! I have grown up my child properly. I have not been a perfect parent” thus our mind and heart will worry and grieve us. But to correct and guide our children’s life, it is not must that we need to be perfect parent. Because there is no any perfect parent anywhere. None of us is perfect. But we all can be the praying parents for our children. This can be done by all of us. When we pray for our children these children’s life will have change is certain.


 


Just as the Bible says, “Train up a child in the way he should go,” and teach them God’s words and God’s ways and to honor God with obedience. If not given importance to obedience if a work is done without importance the children will be diverted from life.
