Pursue your healing

Pursue your healing

Mark 3:10 NKJV For He healed many, so that as many as had afflictions pressed about Him to touch Him. Jesus healed those who reached out and pressed into Him for their healing! The leper, the women with the issue of blood and blind Bartimaeus. They recognised that the Lord was willing, compassionate and ready to heal them. Healing can be pursued and must be pursued. We need to recognise the physical need and pray and seek the power of the Holy Spirit to heal us. Knowing it’s not our power, it’s the Lord’s virtue. It’s God’s goodness that flows from the Lord Himself! So, if you know the Lord and you are His son or daughter then healing is the children’s bread (yours). It belongs to you and me. We need to receive it and walk in it. We don’t have to attain it with our mental ability or stress, we just go to the Lord and receive it from Him, our maker! Knowing He is willing and it is His desire to make us whole. This is the basis on which we begin to pursue the Lord, knowing that He wants us to be healed and made whole. Jesus’s death on the cross and the gospel that we preach is not to enjoy benefits after a while or after we have gone to heaven. It’s here and now! Jesus died so that you and I can enjoy all the benefits His blood bought us now on earth. Don’t let another day pass by thinking it’s all for the future. Faith in the gospel is for the manifested things of God for now. Because Jesus is alive and the Holy Spirit is with us now. You can have your healing! So let’s ask and pursue the Lord by knowing it’s your birthright and it’s what Jesus bought on the Cross for us. As a son and daughter of God, we need to pursue it. Believing in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, that He has already qualified us and it’s not by our own merits but by His mercy and goodness on the cross!  ...

Dream Again…

Dream Again…

The last two years have been more than challenging. Pain can keep the real you down. It did it to me. The pain made me shut down. It silenced me. But God reminded me today “Dream Again” It’s a scary thing to know that God’s dreams for you can go unfulfilled if you choose so. You can sit still and let life pass by, or you can pick up your sword and fight the good fight. This day I said I will dream again. The life of Elijah has been speaking to me more and more these past two years. In him I see a promise and purpose for his life, and in him I also see pain silencing the dream. Pain that made him give up half way through. Three years he lived, first by the brook Cherith until it dried up, then by the meagre savings of a widow. What if he gave up when the brook dried up? What if he gave up when the rain didn’t come? Three years is a long time to live through a famine, but in the end, God used those three years to make it known to the whole nation that He is God in Israel (1 Kings 18:36). Let not pain keep you down. Let not disappointment keep you from the continuing the journey. Let not the devil steal, kill and destroy your destiny. Dream...

Broken Yet Still Strong

Broken Yet Still Strong

The pastor looked at me and asked, “So you’re here alone? No friends, no family?”  The tears started welling up, but I smiled and replied ‘yes’ confidently. That’s broken yet strong. It doesn’t make sense how that works: broken yet still strong. It’s a place that’s hard to explain. But it exists, I know, ’cause here I am living it. The morning my parents left, it hit me, I’m alone here, but at the same time I knew, I can never be alone. That’s His promise. I never understood why God wanted a broken heart. I didn’t know what that meant. How can a broken heart share the joy of Jesus to others? Won’t they appear depressed and not appealing at all? Wouldn’t their brokenness cut others? I had seen broken people before in the world; their edges so sharp if you go near you were sure to be cut. So how can a broken person minister love? Then I understood; when I am broken I am no longer ministering my love, which is conditional and limited. I am ministering His love, which just flows through me. His love that just uses me as a passage or a doorway. I understood. We can’t minister to the world just through our love, that would fall terribly short. The world needs His love. His unconditional, unfailing love. If I wasn’t broken how could His love flow through, it would be blocked. Now, through my broken pieces it flows. Healing me in the process too. We all need healing. Now I understood. Being broken before Him is the best place to live. When His love flows through every nook and cranny and strengthens me in ways I could never do on my own. Your brokenness means that you are standing and smiling only because of Him. It’s true, He does give peace the world cannot understand, and joy in abundance. Through your brokenness let Jesus’ love flow through you and heal those around you! Be blessed beloved and always know He will never leave you! “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:27 NKJV...

When We Get That “Plan B” itch

When We Get That “Plan B” itch

No wonder Sarah thought of plan B.   She got frustrated waiting for plan A. But we all know how that turned out; yes God was faithful and made sure His plan A did come to pass, but Sarah, she had to deal with the results of her own Plan B; something none of us want in our lives; an Ishmael. So what do we do when we feel that “Plan B” itch?  When the breakthrough has been on its way for far too long. We do what Hannah did: “ she continued praying before the Lord” (1 Samuel 1:12) The bible tells us that each year she kept going up to worship the Lord with her husband and her provoker, Penninah by her side, and of course Peninnah’s many sons and daughters. When you think of Peninnah’s many sons and daughters, you realize that Hannah’s wait wasn’t just one or two years; it was many. And yet, for many years she persisted. She didn’t give up. All breakthroughs are good. But a breakthrough on our own terms and our own time may not be.  When I picture breakthrough I imagine a chick breaking through an egg.  Finally free. What if that breakthrough comes before the chick can survive, then it’s not a good thing at all. This is where we learn the art of waiting. Just like Hannah. She didn’t give up, when really, she could have decided, I had enough of praying the same prayer year after year; yet she persisted. Holy Spirit help us to be persistent. To never give up. Help us to always “continue praying before the Lord”. Give us supernatural joy during the wait.  Help us not give up during the wait. And help us to never go our own way during the wait. We are all waiting for something.  Trust God during your wait. Trust His time for your breakthrough. But in the meantime, PRAY! Oh and let’s not forget, her persistence had a reward; God gave her a Samuel, imagine what He has planned for you!  I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. (Psalm...

When You Believe Through the Pain

When You Believe Through the Pain

There are days the pain doesn’t make sense. Then the day arrives when the tears of pain become tears of joy. When the church in Bangalore was planted, it wasn’t planted in a season of rejoicing, but a season of pain. The little plant didn’t make sense to many people, and we ourselves had our doubts. Almost ten months later we saw a beautiful fruit; the first wedding from the church. And that wedding, much like the planting of the church was both rejoicing and pain. Rejoicing at what God had done, and pain at the rejection from man. We try to be as brave as we can, but we all know, rejection hurts. But there is One who understands this pain. I wonder when He walked with the cross on His back, was His heart torn between the two emotions also, overjoyed knowing, yes this is what the Father wants, but also in pain as rejection spit at His face. What we experience is new to us but He has already experienced it, and that’s why He can understand. Ten months later on that day, my husband and I looked at each other and knew all the pain, all the tears, all the rejection was worth it all! There are days the pain doesn’t make sense. Then the day arrives when the tears of pain become tears of joy. I declare over you that day is coming soon! Hold on till then! “He has made everything beautiful in its time” Ecclesiastes 3:11 NIV...

Called to Commitment

Posted by on 6:59 am in Chethan | 2 comments

Called to Commitment

Pastor Earnest Abraham is a dear friend who is serving the Lord in one of the most interior parts of  India. He has a great passion for the Lord, and his commitment inspires this generation.  His ministry is one which empowers the less privileged, moves with a strong deliverance anointing and all with a heart of a teacher. Take a moment and read this post. I am sure this will speak to your heart. We often speak of commitment as something that should be taken seriously. However, a glance through the meaning of commitment in a dictionary would suggest something deeper – that it means making a “promise” or a “pledge” that requires adherence to a set of values and designs that together hold the potential to achieve the desired outcome. And, the most critical aspect of commitment is the ability to sustain it over a period of time. It is not a momentary excitement to pursue something. Commitment requires constant, consistent, patient, persistent pursuit. The defining factor of commitment is an undeniable constant, overarching ache to see the desired come to pass.  No part of the person escapes that ache. It refuses to cease – regardless of the circumstances. To me, the most outstanding example of commitment in the Bible, apart from Jesus, is that of Paul. Read this for a moment:  “Five different times the Jewish leaders gave me thirty-nine lashes. Three times I was beaten with rods. Once I was stoned. Three times I was shipwrecked. Once I spent a whole night and a day adrift at sea. I have traveled on many long journeys. I have faced danger from rivers and from robbers. I have faced danger from my own people, the Jews, as well as from the Gentiles. I have faced danger in the cities, in the deserts, and on the seas. And I have faced danger from men who claim to be believers but are not. I have worked hard and long, enduring many sleepless nights. I have been hungry and thirsty and have often gone without food. I have shivered in the cold, without enough clothing to keep me warm. Then, besides all this, I have the daily burden of my concern for all the churches. Who is weak without my feeling that weakness? Who is led astray, and I do not burn with anger? “ 2 Cor. 11:24-29 (NLT) Quite a picture of unwavering commitment, isn’t it? But what strikes me the most about Paul’s commitment is his willingness to go through anything to reach for what God had placed before him. Paul had an overarching ache to see it come to pass – so much so that nothing else compared to it. Pain of the worst kind should not be reason enough to cause us to cease our pursuit of God. Today, there is no dearth of excitement among believers and much of the excitement is viewed as positive. I agree that the positive energy that excitement generates is contagious and beneficial. But if we are to achieve what God has set before us, we must move into a place of commitment – the kind demonstrated by Paul – where the biggest difficulties will not be able to cause us to waver from wholeheartedly pursuing what God has set before us. And to get...

Prophecy for 2014: The Year of Supernatural Accomplishment

Prophecy for 2014: The Year of Supernatural Accomplishment

If the things you expected haven’t happened and you have remained stagnant last year, read on, for 2014 is going to be a year of Supernatural accomplishment! Life is all about choices and shifting gears at the right time. There are times you need to pull back, refocus and step out again. What you could not do on your own; God will do because He is God! This is the time to move from the natural to the supernatural! While many of us focus on the donkey that carried Jesus, the real point is this: the Creator who formed that donkey is the same who appointed that one-day that donkey would carry Him. It is God who called that donkey at that specific appointed time-the kairos of God. I am certain that this year some unused donkeys are about to be called and used, and that too supernaturally. Get ready your appointed time; the ‘kairos’ of God is coming. Stop looking back and look ahead for what you are about to see is unlike anything you have ever seen. The one who is on the throne is getting ready with your kairos- your set appointed time for your manifestation into the supernatural things of God. The rod of authority is being stretched forth, and the dams are breaking over your spiritual drought. You have waited through pains and strains but now the delivery is coming. It going to be a new phase, a new outlook, and a new walk. Everything will change. But adaption for the things of God is required. Not many are used to the supernatural so we need to begin to expect it, talk about it, and pursue it, for we need to accustom our gears to shift to the supernatural. Training is the key. The spiritual drought in our country will be quenched, by an army of young Jesus lovers rising in 2014! Your failures will be transformed to victory this 2014 in Jesus name! Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee; And light shall shine upon thy ways Job 22:28 To understand your transition from 2013 to 2014-the year of accomplishment, watch the video below and receive a word from God.  ...

Soaking in Myrrh

Soaking in Myrrh

Her time of preparation took one year. And I read about it in less than a second. Then I stopped and realized what I had just read. Being queen didn’t look so appealing to me. Yes, having hired hands every second of the day and the best wardrobe in the known world is a little tempting to any girl. But count in the days and years of loneliness and the prospect of being just an object of satisfaction and I’m sure Esther felt the same, as I did, no thanks! For one year she was separated from everyone she loved. She found herself, just her and God. I wonder if she questioned God, I wonder if she felt like getting up and getting out. I wonder if at any point did she realize what God was preparing her for. Our time of preparation is the hardest time one can go through. Like in baking we are kneaded, we are stretched, we are pulled, until, until that time we reach just the right consistency. And then don’t forget the hot oven. Baking is never complete without the hot oven. But once the finished product comes out, all the work and pain become worth it. So today I want to encourage you, don’t give up during your preparation time. Don’t give in. It is for a purpose. Your are being skill fully crafted by the Master craftsman. He knows what He is doing. He is teaching you to walk with Him.
Then only will you be ready to walk for Him. Know this, after the bitter waters of myrrh you will shine for His glory! “-after being twelve months under the regulations for the women, since this was the regular period of their beautifying, six months with oil of myrrh and six months with spices and ointments for women” (Esther...

Our Heart Matters!

Posted by on 2:09 pm in Chethan, Featured | 2 comments

Our Heart Matters!

  Your heart defines you and your walk with God! For God, ministry and power doesn’t matter. God is moved when our hearts move for Him and for His people! We are in a very tricky place when meetings, healing and miracles move us more than God Himself. The last three weeks, we witnessed 16 blinds eyes open, 12 deaf ears open, the lame walking, the handicapped made whole and many other healings of incurable diseases. While I was pondering over these and when I was talking to my spiritual Mentor (Rev. Shyju Mathew). He said, “Son, disconnect from all these miracles. Don’t dwell on them, they have nothing to do with you! He said, fix your eyes on Jesus and continue to pursue Him and your best is yet to come!” Beloved, that’s when I began to think of what really matters to God. The answer came so quickly. The Holy Spirit said: your heart My son! When, what moves God’s heart begins to move us: things change, ministry changes, life’s view and perspective change! Ultimately at the close of this age, God is looking for hearts, which are sold out for Jesus. It is in our hearts beloved, where the Holy Spirit loves to dwell. Our hearts are the holy altars where His fire burns! The Holy Spirit doesn’t dwell in our reputation; nor does He dwell with us dependent on if we have huge meetings and crowd followings. He dwells with a humble, broken and contrite heart. God is looking for yielded hearts; who are dependent on Him every moment, who will say yes to Him with all of their being! Are you yielded to Him? Have you left your rebellion behind and dealt with your heart condition? It is time we do! Our heart matters. In this life’s journey each day we are getting closer to eternity, let’s get our hearts ready for eternity! Much love and prayers, I would love to hear from you! Jesus loves...

When you want to Throw in the Towel

When you want to Throw in the Towel

I reached an Elijah point today. No, not the fire from heaven, the chapter after that. Where he sat and told God I don’t think I can handle it God. I told God this morning: This is way too hard God. I think I need some faith infused into me cause I feel dry. When people are dehydrated they need IV fluids STAT! And I needed some strength infused STAT! That’s when I read about Elijah. And I learned when he was down to his last drop of strength God sent an angel to give him some food and water. Strength enough to make it to the Mountain of God. There God met him and loved him and spoke to him. And gave him a miracle in an unexpected way, in a still small voice. God met me today when I had reached my last drop. He didn’t let me go. And He won’t let you go. He will meet you. Because you are His child. Though a mother forsake her nursing child He will never forget you (Isaiah 49:15). He will give you the miracle you need. He will come as the still small voice and surprise you. Hold on till...
