You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him.” – Psalms 91:15

You might be facing certain troubles in your life. It might be a disease, sins, relationship issues, failures or any financial problems. Today God is promising you that if you look unto Him, He will be with you during the times of trouble. He will provide you comfort. Not only that, He will also deliver and honor you. 

When David killed Goliath, many praised him for the brave thing he did. Few women said that Saul killed only thousands but David ten thousands. When Saul heard what they said it displeased him. 

1 Samuel 18:9 says, “So Saul eyed David from that day forward.” From that day onwards Saul tried to kill David. In Psalms 18:6 David says, “In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, and my cry came before Him, even to His ears.” 

When David faced trouble in his life through Saul, he cried to God. God heard his prayers and delivered him from the hands of Saul. 1 Samuel 23:14 says, “...Saul sought him every day, but God did not deliver him into his hands.”

Though Saul was against David, God was with him to deliver him and He raised him as a king and honoured him. God will do the same to you. People might come against you. Evil things might come against you. Do not fear. As you look unto God, He will be with you. He will deliver you from the hands of wicked ones and raise you. 

Recently I heard an incident that happened in the life of a particular person. There lived a young boy in a particular city in India. He was born to God fearing parents. He was a rebellious guy who does things according to his own desire. His parents could do nothing as he didn’t obey them at all. As he had a good voice he got in relationship with musicians and singers of the secular movie world. He had a pride in saying that he knows many cine musicians and singers. His mother called him and advised him to come out of those relationships but he continued to work for them. 

One day he got a problem in his throat and soon he lost his sweet voice and he was bedridden. All those were with him vanished and they left him alone. Doctors could do nothing as his problem got severe. He was in death bed. But his parents ran to him and started praying for him earnestly. As his health condition got worsened he wanted to see all his close blood relations for a last time. Everyone came from different places and he saw them with tears. 

One particular night as he was thinking about what all the wrong things he did, Jesus appeared by his bedside. He told Jesus that his parents were praying for him a lot and asked him why He has not healed him so far? Jesus said to him that He came only because of the tears of his mother. As he felt bad about his life he immediately prayed to Jesus asking His forgiveness and pleaded Him to heal him. Jesus forgave his sins and healed him within few days. That young guy grew up and now he is living in Bahrain with his wife and children.

The mother of that young guy prayed to Jesus. Jesus heard her prayers and He came down to heal that young guy. When he prayed, Jesus forgave all his sins and blessed him. 

My dear young friends, do not get discouraged about anything. You might be going through a toughest path. You might be facing darkness in your life. Do not worry. Just pray to Jesus Christ. He longs to hear from you. When you pray, Jesus Christ will answer your prayers and He will come to you and will deliver you. God will honor you.
