Dearly beloved, the Lord has promised, "…My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest" (Exodus 33:14). Moses prayed, “If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people" (Exodus 33:13).
When Moses cried out to God, “Lord, You have called me by name and I have found grace in Your eyes. You are going before me. Hence show me Your way,” the Lord graciously showed Moses His way (Psalm 103:7).
God has planned everything for us. He has planned as to how we should walk, what we should do, whom we should marry, etc. He is our Heavenly Father. He says, “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
All we have to do to receive His blessings is to know His way. He gives us His Holy Spirit only to show His way.
The Bible says: “In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams” (Acts 2:17). “This is what the LORD says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: 'I am the LORD your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go'" (Isaiah 48:17).
When we plead with God to show us His way, He will open our eyes and show us the way. When we walk in His way, we will be blessed.
After the home call of my father Bro. D. G. S. Dhinakaran on 20th February 2008, I was standing near his coffin. Nearly one million people came to pay their last respects to him. All of them unanimously cried, “Father, you have left us.” Only then I realized that doing the Lord’s ministry is not just preaching a message or bringing miracles or singing a few songs. It is much more than that. We must know the plan of God for the people and reveal it to them. We must lead them just like a father.
From that day onwards I started praying, “Lord, what should I do? My father revealed Your plan to the people, ministries and the nation. Now who can be a father to them?” I cried like this for 23 days. The Holy Spirit came upon me mightily on 14th March 2008 and told me as to what I should do and what will happen in the world. That day, He revealed His grace to me and strengthened me to be a blessing to others.
When we know the will of God and do it, we will receive His blessings. Balaam said, “The oracle of one whose eye sees clearly” (Numbers 24:3). In the same way, God will open our eyes also. He will pour His Spirit of prophecy into us and enable us to know His will. Through that, we can enjoy rest and we do not have to worry about anything. When we do whatever He says, He will give us more and more rest.
Loving Lord Jesus,
You are my Heavenly Father. You have planned everything for me. Pour your Spirit into me. Open my eyes and show me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Teach me to do your will that I may receive your blessings. Strengthen me to be a blessing to others.
In Your matchless name I pray.
