Recently, I was thrilled to read the testimony of Bro. Charles from Bengaluru. He wrote thus: Brother, my name is Charles. I live in Bengaluru. I knew the Lord; yet I was living a sinful life, which was displeasing to the Lord. At the age of 16, I fell into bad company. Hence I became an addict to alcohol. Not only that, in due course I was addicted to smoking, drugs and all other bad habits and was always in an intoxicated state. Sometimes I used to even lie down near the garbage bin. Thus my life was getting ruined. Despite my hard efforts to leave off these habits, I couldn’t. Eventually my whole family and relatives detested me and rejected me. I kept myself aloof from everyone. I struggled without food and a place to stay.
During this time, I was attacked by sicknesses because of which most of my organs stopped functioning. On one side was my terribly sinful life; on the other side was sickness. At this pitiable state, one of my relatives took me to the Jesus Calls Prayer Festival held in Kolar Gold Field in the state of Karnataka. I was seated in that meeting, with great agony. During the prayer time, when you prayed, I too joined in the prayer and cried out to God. Suddenly you said, “Charles, the power of Jesus is coming upon you. It fills your body. All the organs that had stopped functioning are getting recreated. The power of darkness is leaving you. The power of Jesus is making you His servant”. Thus you narrated my life story. Even as I was hearing these prophetic words, the power of God came down on me mightily. Like a little child I committed my life in the hands of the Lord. Since then all the bad habits that were wrecking my life, left me. Not only that all my sicknesses vanished and the organs of my body were revived and restored. I received perfect healing. My heart was filled with peace and joy. I began to live for Jesus, who called me by my name and changed me into a new man. Now I am married and am doing ministry for the Lord.”
Recently, on 24th October 2014, during the Jesus Calls Prayer Festival held in Bengaluru, this brother shared about all these blessings he had received, on the stage before the multitudes of people. Everyone was strengthened in their faith.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” (II Corinthians 5:17)
Yes my beloved, Our God is Almighty. Even today, He is born in the heart of people. When the birth of Christ is celebrated, the Lord wants to be born in your heart as He loves you so much. Will you open your little heart fully for Him?
When you open your heart to Him, He shall come and dwell in your heart. And you can be assured that You are completely His and He loves you unconditionally.
Loving Lord Jesus,
I seek You diligently in prayer. Please come into my life and live through me. Fill me with Your grace and transform me into Your image. Let all my problems disappear in Your mighty name and new blessings come into my life.
In Your matchless name I pray,
