ENDURANCE UNLOCKS BLESSINGS!Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name.    (John 15:16)

The Dhinakarans My dearly Beloved,

Sometimes situations and circumstances in our life may have us make impulsive statements which could make us lose all the blessings ordained by God for us. It is what we say that releases blessings or curses in our life. However, we have a merciful God who has given us promises that we can stand on and turn our mourning into dancing.

Praises to our awesome God and endurance in the worst of our afflictions, will unlock heavenly blessings in our life. It happened in my mother’s life as well. When my mother got married, my father and his relatives did not know about Christ. However when she entered her new house, she felt darkness and fear around her. Engulfed in a storm of afflictions, she fasted and prayed, held on to the Lord in the midst of her tribulation and sought him diligently. Relentlessly she prayed for the salvation of her husband and his relatives. For the sake of the Lord, she patiently endured all these agonies.

Her endurance and patience finally saw the entire family come to the knowledge of the Lord. It is because of her that I too know the Lord today. Sometimes I question my husband as to how he chose me as his wife. He always replies, “I did not, the Lord did.”

Beloved, the Lord’s promise, "You did not choose Me, but I chose you.” (John 15:16) still holds true even today. The work of One Man- Jesus Christ on the cross delivered us from the powers of darkness. His sacrifice and endurance unlocked the gates of heaven for us. He is worthy of all our praises. Praise Him and glorify Him and unlock the heavenly blessings into your life.

Prayer

Dear loving Father,

I praise You for giving me a new life. Your sacrifice on the cross unchained me from the clutches of sin. Your blood O Lord has healed me of every guilt of sin. Thank You Master for turning my sorrow into joy. Father fill me with Your Holy Spirit and help me to endure every adverse and difficult situation in my life. I have made a choice to follow You all the days of my life. Lord lead in the way I should go. Thank You and bless You my Lord!


In Jesus name

Amen!
