[ecko_quote source=" Psalm 43:5"]Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why are you disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
నా ప్రాణమా, నీ వేల క్రుంగియున్నావు?
నాలో నీ వేల తొందరపడుచున్నావు?
దేవునియందు నిరీక్షణ యుంచుము[/ecko_quote]
This word has come into my heart strongly, and I believe it is much needed for some of our dear ones. In these last days, we hardly find peace in the world and within the families. The devil is attacking and putting its entire force to dislodge the Christian faith. Many of us are troubled and disturbed in our souls due to various reasons. When one trouble is followed by another, it seems like they are all combined to ruin us. But remember they are all appointed and overruled by the Lord. King David regards the Divine favour as the fountain of all the good he looked for.
Is there ever any ground to be cast down? There are two reasons, only two. If we are as yet unconverted, we have ground to be cast down; or if we have been converted and live in sin, then we are rightly cast down. But except for these two things, there is no ground to be cast down, for all else may be brought before God in prayer with supplication and thanksgiving. And regarding all our necessities, all our difficulties, all our trials, we may exercise faith in the power of God, and in the love of God. I hope most of us are in this category by putting forth our faith into action.
Hope in God (దేవునియందు నిరీక్షణ యుంచుము) and remember this; There is never a time when we may not hope in God. Whatever our necessities, great our difficulties, and though to all appearance help is impossible, yet our business is to hope in God, and it will be found that it is not vain. In the Lord's own time ( in fact, it's our perfect time) help WILL come.
In my life when it seemed impossible that help could come, help did come, for God has His own resources. He is not confined. In ten thousand different ways, and at ten thousand different times God may help us. Our business is to spread our cases before the Lord, in childlike simplicity to pour out all our heart before God.
It is always a weakness to be despaired and worrying, questioning and mistrusting of our heavenly Father. Can we gain anything by it? Do we not unfit ourselves for action, and unhinge our minds for a wise decision? We are sinking into our despair and disappointment when we might float by faith.
Come, my soul return unto thy rest, and lean they head upon the bossom of the Lord Jesus.
Saint Augustine once said "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.” The only solution for despair and discouragement is that we must turn our eyes from self and look to our Lord.
In our Saviour's name (Jesus Christ) let us hope and pray. One word from Him will calm every storm, and turn midnight darkness into the light of noon, the bitterest complaints into joyful praises. Let us never think that the God of our life and the Rock of our salvation has forgotten us; provided, we make His mercy, truth, and power, our refuge. Thus, the psalmist strove against his hopelessness: at last, his faith and hope obtained the victory.
Whatever befall me in this valley of tears, I know that He has chosen me.
దేవుని యందు నిరీక్షణనుంచి – ఆయనను స్తుతించు నా ప్రాణమా
తల్లి కన్న- తండ్రి కన్న – ఉత్తముడు
ఆధారము – ఆదరణ – ఆయనలో
