Every human person, here on earth, desires power and honour richness, position, name and fame and in order to achieve that he or she strives day and night, and when one does not get what he or she wants, he lives in sorrow and sadness. My dear brothers and sisters, what this world offers to us does not stay with us forever. What power or position, we get from people is temporary and that is why we see everywhere fights and troubles in political, social, institutional placements. There is fight and injustice and destruction for the sake of power and recognitions. Hence, the word of God, tells us, do not desire this world and its glory, that will pass away. It will not remain forever. The rich will become poor, master will be a slave, ruler will be ruled, minister will have to be an ordinary citizen, so on and so forth. Hence seek glory and honour, power and authority from God, in order to serve him and honour him. We read, Jesus gave this power and authority in the Gospel. “All authority in Heaven and on Earth, God has given to me, go therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt. 28: 28-29). The authority, what the disciples received from Jesus was permanent. The authority God gave to his prophets was permanent. We need today authority from God to overcome all evil. Jesus says “See I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of enemy, and nothing will hurt you” (Luke. 10:19)

“If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord & believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9). Confession is where we take the word of God and speak it aloud to our self to begin to minister to our very own soul. Our soul is our mind, will, intellect and emotions. The soul is one of the places we have to get rid of our unbelief and to change how we think and feel about our circumstances. We need to take the Word of God that pertains to our needs and say them aloud to ourselves daily.
Jesus said “I tell you, on the day of judgment you will have to give an account for every careless word you utter” (Matthew 12:36). Our words have power to affect our present situations and they also determine our future. We are living today based on the words which we have spoken in the past. Each word that we speak has either creative or destructive power. Relationships can be destroyed by words or lack of words, things that are said or things that should be said that are not said, hence we need to replace our negative words, with the Word of God. Jesus said “For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). So our words determine the state of our heart.
One who says, there is no God is a fool. One who does not believe in God, does not receive God’s help. Psalm 14 and verse one says “Fools say in their hearts, There is no God”. Such people’s life is corrupt and they do abominable deeds. Such people cannot do good” (Psalm 14:1). Those who do not believe in God, do not receive any help from God, for the word of God tells “from where will my help come? My help comes from the Lord” (Psalm 121:1-2). So, love God wholeheartedly and believe in him and you will live. “Draw near to God, and God will draw near to you.” (James: 4-8). The recent scientific research has found out that, God particle (deva kana) is the cause of creation of the whole universe. This research will soon prove the wise men of this world, real fools and prove God’s word to be true. Therefore not through the wisdom of this world, but through the power of the word of God, and by believing in it, we will see the Glory of God. Jesus told Martha “Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God” (John 11:40). Hence, brothers and sisters, believe in God, read and reflect his life giving word, and surely you will be blessed. Remember, what Jesus told Thomas “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe” (John 20:29)
Oh even if I am sitting in wilderness,
I hear your marvelous creation sing your praise,
I will join them, for it’s your grace,
That I am alive, even when I am left in loneliness.
You make me move further and further,
When I am tired, you alone carry me in your arms,
I am strong, even if I am weak,
Cause I have you besides me
Doing your will is my one desire,
Your spirit has set my heart on fire,
Oh how good is my Lord JESUS,
Who can go away from him after tasting his love.
Praise his name oh his creation .
He is the one who sustains us
Father, Son and the Holy Ghost,
Are my Lord and my God for life long.

Couldn't you stay awake?
He told me to continually pray,
So that I may not fall into their prey,
But I couldn't do as he said
Jesus told, the spirit indeed is willing,
Overcome your flesh and be holy,
Seek first the things of heavenly,
And you will have eternal joy with godly
Temptations will take you away from him,
So be a warrior and take care not to fall into sin,
I have experienced it a lot and in that I have been.
I love you my friend and I tell you my story sincerely.
Tremble at his one word,
Fear to go against his teachings and law.
Love him with all your heart, mind and soul,
To live in holiness he calls everyone of us all.
