Jesus - Hope of the World

Dr. Paul Dhinakaran

Our Lord is determined to bless His children. “The Lord has been mindful of us; He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel.” (Psalm 115:12). He blesses us and our household as the Bible says ‘He is mindful of us’.  Often times, when we go through difficult situation, we are dismayed and begin to doubt the existence of God. We become naive of the power of God. King David understood the valour of God and praised Him for His marvellous deeds. He blessed his kingdom and his people by professing excellence of God. It just takes a moment to understand the greatness of God. When we look up to Him and surrender ourselves at His feet, a heavenly joy and peace will fill our hearts. This will drive us to lead our lives with confidence.      
 
A couple lived in poverty with their five children. One day, one of their children had gone to a shop. The shopkeeper blamed him falsely for theft, just because he was poor. The boy came home crying bitterly. This incident hurt the mother’s heart greatly. After everyone had left the house, she went into the room with her 5-year-old child, opened the valve of the gas cylinder, laid herself on the bed embracing her child and awaited death. Her little child bombarded her with many questions. As she quieted the child, a song came through a radio in the next room with the lyrics, “What a friend we have in Jesus…” The love of Jesus that rose from the song instilled fresh hope in her heart. She got up from the bed, went straight to the place where the radio was playing and said, “Lord Jesus, please forgive all my sins.
Remove all our burdens and travails. Please save our family.” She wept bitterly. The Lord Jesus consoled her and restored all the lost blessings, one after the other to this dear family.
 
Beloved, the name of Jesus gives hope everywhere. The Lord who blessed this couple will surely bless you. As you are a child of God, God loves to bless you. “May you be blessed by the Lord, Who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 115:15).  Do not be disheartened. In your inadequacies, seek God. He will fill you to the brim with His blessing. Those who seek the Lord will lack no good thing. The Lord created this earth for us to live joyfully and replenish.  He will be faithful in His word and bless us in such a way we will be a blessing to many others.
Prayer:
“Loving Heavenly Father, I thank You for You love to bless me. I feel so blessed. I bring my needs before You. Lord, remove every inadequacy from my life. Help me to have a prosperous life so that I will be a blessing to others. May it bring glory to Your name. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
