One freaking night..

This thing was in a night after tiring day’s work. Oh, that was nothing like peaceful slumber. My sleep was sweet, that’s all I could remember. Usually, I would sense my little one tossing and turning in my bed but this night drifted me away.

In the middle of the night, I had a strange feeling that caused me shock and pain from my shoulders to my legs. It felt like someone’s big hands were touching and pulling my inmost tissues of my body. It was disturbing in a way that I suddenly remembered my C-section delivery. That weird sensation which led to restlessness and quickness to escape from it. I kept mumbling to myself, turned sides, squirmed with pain but nothing changed. Then I awoke and realized that no one was there on my left side. On my right, was my little one quietly sleeping.  But the sudden strong touch came from the left side. I trembled at that moment.  Worst pain ever!

Then this word crossed my mind “… once for all by his own blood, thus obtaining eternal redemption.”
Hebrews 9:12. I was saying this to myself like an affirmation. By the blood of Lord Jesus Christ, his own blood, I am set free. Then, this pain and the hand that was agonising me left me at that moment. I felt calm and comforted knowing it left me. Then I went back to sleep.

I thank the Lord for he delivered me from my troubles through his word. There is power in the blood of Jesus Christ.

Great escape

A wonderful father in his early 40s shared the story of his life. He was a busy, hard- working, sincere man. He served in a corporate firm. There was an official requirement for him to work the next day so he stayed at a motel that night. This was far away from his home. After he rented a motel room, he went in and he found three pictures on the wall which disturbed him. So he covered those wall hangings with a bed cover. Temporarily, this was the solution.

He was about to hit the bed to peacefully retire and rest up his legs. Then, there was a knock on the door which seemed like room service. As he opened the door, he found 2 men standing at the door with aggressive behaviour. Irrelevant of the situation, suddenly they pointed at the pictures covered with bed cover, kept using inappropriate language and threatened him. They had sharp knives and imposed threat on him. But this father kept quiet. These men abruptly left with these words “Because of your God, you are safe today”. Yes, it’s true. This father believes in Lord Jesus Christ whom God raised from the dead.

Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death. Psalm 68:20

God Most High is great and awesome. He saves, protects and escape from death comes from him.
