Does Anyone Care?

Here are some of the thoughts that emerged out of this sermon. • God saw the struggles of your past.
• Even before you knew your God, He knew you
• The one who number the stars and calls them by name, knew your struggles of the past—-more—-
• You do not know what is ahead of you, but God knows
• Give all your Unknowns into the hands of the Known God who Knows your Future
• Hagar’s problem was different from your problem, but the same God who saw Hagar is seeing you today
• If you are called out of your country and wandering in this land as strangers and pilgrims, wilderness is part of your life.
But remember, He is your El-Roi, the God who sees.

Your Harvest Field

John 4:31-38 is a conversation Jesus was having with His disciples. These verses could be grouped as “My Food, My People and My Servants” Jesus is telling us the same thing that He told to the disciples the other day.
• Do not lose your spiritual sensitivity
• Do not ignore people, look for divine encounters, divine opportunities—-more—-
• Start loving this land, start loving the people who are not of your color, not your nationality and don’t speak your language
• Open your eyes to see the opportunity God has brought in front of you
• Your mission field is not within four walls, its outside the four walls
• The land you are living today, the land you are immigrating to is your Mission Field
• You are not just an international student, not just a sponsored immigrant or a permanent resident, none of us are permanent here.
• You are a missionary to this land, no question of turning back, you are called to run your race in this land, once its all done, get buried here in this land.
• This is the call of God on each one of you.

Eternal Praise

Praise is Eternal, the Praise that we start on this earth even in the midst of our challenges, wearing our sackcloth is going to continue into the Eternity as Eternal Praise as we will be clothed with the garment of Praise.

David is Praising God for the way God helped him in every situation. He revealed couple of truths concerning our lives and the way God works among us.—-more—-
• Depressing nature of Life
• Momentary sorrow that we experience
• The falling nature of man and the sudden nature of troubles
• The uselessness of Life once lived and the pricelessness of Life while living
• The ultimate deliverance of eternal praise raising when the garment of praise if put on and the sackcloth is permanently removed.

Following are some of the truths that are revealed in Psalm 30.
Truth #1 Life is depressing at times, but the God of David will not allow your enemies rejoice over you.
Truth #2 : God works through the momentary forsakenness, momentary affliction, momentary suffering and weeping that endures only for a night, to show the extent of His favor and to give the assurance of joy.
Truth # 3: The moment pride comes in our lives, moment we start depending on our strength, God hides His face.
Truth #4: Life is useless once lived only for the world, but it is priceless once lived for God.
Truth #5: The Praise that we started on the earth for the momentary deliverances is going to continue as Eternal Praise in heaven once the sackcloth is permanently removed and the garment of praise is put on for ever.
