“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known” – Jer 33:3. The is a very big promise the Lord is giving his children. Whenever we call on to him he surely answers us in his time and in his ways according to his will which is always for our good.
King David trusted in the Lord God alone and always called on to him and received blessings. “I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, so shall I be saved from my enemies.” – Psalm 18:3. “In my distress I called upon the Lord; to my God I called for help. From his temple he heard my voice, and my cry to him reached his ears.” – Psalm 18:6. “I sought the Lord and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.” – Psalm 34:4. “This poor soul cried, and was heard by the Lord, and was saved from every trouble.” – Psalm 34:6
“O give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever.” – Psalm 107:1. “I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples, and I will sing praises to you among the nations.” – Psalm 108:3. “We give thanks to you, O God; we give thanks; your name is near. People tell of your wondrous deeds.” – Psalm 75:1.
My dear brothers and sisters, from the time we were conceived in the womb of our mother till this very moment, the Lord has protected us from all evil, accidents, untimely deaths, diseases, sicknesses; the Lord has provided us all our needs, wants, desires, food, clothing, shelter; the Lord has guided us through all our struggles, our weaknesses our plans and our decisions; and how many times we have really thanked the Lord, our God, Jesus Christ? This is one question we really need to ask ourselves.
“Everyone who commits sin is guilty of lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.” – 1 Jn 3:4. “But if we confess our sins, he who is faithful and just, will forgive us our sins, and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” – 1 Jn 1:9
All of us, human beings, fall into sin. There is no one in this world who is good and perfect and free from sin. For the Word of God itself tells us, “There is no one who is righteous, not even one.” – Rom 3:10. “If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” – 1 Jn 1:10.
Jesus says “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” – John 8:12. “If we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.” – 1 John 1:7. Jesus has called us a “chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” – 1 Pet 2:9
Oh Lord the beauty of your creations,
Makes me realize your comprehension,
I always glorify you when I look at those masterpieces.
To love those creatures this is the reason.
They are just really perfect,
And makes me understand we are your important aspect,
Your sacrifice for us is just mind-blowing,
You are my awesome God, whom I am following.
Your beauty and majesty I can't imagine,
This world is foolish who worship gods made out of carvings,
O Lord, Why can't they think wisely?
That in one rough human touch those gods can be in waste bin.
Jehovah the root of wisdom,
Jesus the king of the heavenly Kingdom,
Holy Spirit a present helper,
Are the true God who resides in us humans.

In my weakness you are my strength,
In my distress you are my hope,
When I am dying you are my breath,
When it is impossible you help me cope.
In the hardest of hard journey,.
You make sure my safety,
You never delay my destiny,
All of my days I am strong, for you are with me.
When temptations come in my way,
I believe I can defeat it by your grace,
Now I won't run away from the battle field,
By your strength I can move every mountains and hills.
Jehovah alone is my God and refuge,
In his Son I can win every battle small and huge,
With his spirit I can solve the situation which makes me confuse,
Blessed be my Triune God forever.
