QUOTES ON TOP

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

THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE UPON YOU AND HE SEES YOUR AFFLICTION



Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy” – Psalms 33:18

When Abraham’s wife Sarah had no children, she gave his maid Hagar as wife to Abraham. Soon Hagar conceived and she begun to despise Sarah. When Sarah dealt harshly with Hagar she fled from her presence. 

Hagar ran to the wilderness with no one around her to help her. She was carrying a child as she ran away from Sarah. She had lost the position of being Abraham’s wife. She had lost the protection of being with Abraham’s people. She ran alone. No one was there to stop her and care for her.

Hagar was afflicted but yet God had kept His eyes upon Hagar. God’s promise came to her when she was in the wilderness. The Lord has heard her affliction. Hagar was touched by the love of God and she gave Him a beautiful name which was recorded in Bible. She addressed God as ‘You are the God who sees.’ 

Yes my dear young friends, God sees you. He sees your affliction. He sees your tears. He sees your sorrows. He sees your pain. He sees your loneliness. He sees your wound. He sees everything of yours. And He promises you today that He will make you a great nation. 

My elder brother recently travelled in a train. As he boarded into the train he saw a young couple coming and sitting in the cabin where he was present. They had a very little child. As it was night travel everyone in that cabin went to their berth to sleep. As my brother saw, the father of that little child carefully arranged the berth for his wife and his child. Once they got settled in their berth, instead of going to his berth he sat in front of them and kept his eyes upon them. 

My brother was surprised and he soon slept. After few hours as he had woke up in the middle of his sleep he found that the husband eyes were wide open while his wife and his child was sleeping and he was constantly watching and protecting his young wife and little child. Throughout that journey that father had never slept and He had kept his eyes upon his family. That much he cared for his loved ones.

If an ordinary father could keep his eyes upon his loved ones, How much more your Father in Heaven will keep his eyes upon you and protect you and bless you. 

Hagar walked alone in the wilderness. No one saw her and cared for her. But the Lord almighty saw her and cared for. He will do the same to you.

God’s eyes are upon you. Jesus Christ will answer your prayers and will care for you. You are not alone for God is with you and He will not forsake you.
