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

"But certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer." - Psalms 66:19

As you heart was filled with a great fear about your future, you might be praying with tears for a blessed future. You might be praying for a good job, good grades and a peaceful life. Do not get discouraged. God will certainly hear your prayers and He will bless you richly.

Years back God has brought a young guy into my life who was a great blessing to me. We stayed together in the same hostel for a year.  Basically he was a non-christian and accepted Christ as his saviour a year before I met him. The way he loved Christ was so amazing. He was studying bachelor degree at that time. As his course was about to end, he had a great fear about his future. He always spoke to me about his fear and anxiety.

Though he feared about his future, he learned to pour out his heart to God in prayer. There were times when I crossed his room at early morning 3 o clock, I have heard him praying with tears. Several days I had heard that. He waited God to bless him with a job before he finishes his course. He prayed for that a lot but yet he could not get a job. 

His heart shattered as he failed to get a job in so many interviews that were conducted in the campus he studied. He had kept his trust in God and attended off campus interviews. Jesus Christ never failed him. He heard his prayers and blessed him with a job immediately which was a great blessing to him. He is still working in the same Multi-National company for the past 5 years. Few weeks back he called me and said that he is going to Germany officially for 9 months. What a blessing!

He belongs to an ordinary town in India. He had never thought that God will bless him in such a way. He is not that intelligent. He had his own failures. But Jesus Christ attended to the voice of his prayer and blessed him. 

Even today you might feel like an ordinary guy. You might be longing for a job or promotion or anything. As you continue praying to God, He will hear your prayers and will bless you. 

In 1 Samuel first chapter, we read about the life of Hannah. She was so desperate to have a child. Her rival provoked her and her life was so miserable. One day she ran to God’s presence. God heard her prayers and blessed her with a child who later became a prophet. 

My dear young friends, God can do the same in your life. He will do much more than what he did in the life of the young guy I knew. Pour out your fears in prayer. Your prayers will be answered by God in His time. Jesus Christ will never leave you nor forsake you. He is your Father who loves to bless you abundantly. He will bless you and will give you His joy in abundance. God bless you.
