Goodness of the Lord!

Jeremiah 31:12” You will be radiant [with joy] over the goodness of the Lord—For the grain, for the new wine, for the oil..”


Friends! Wish you all a blessed New Year - 2019! May the Hands of the Lord be upon you, your family and all that you do this year!


I am excited to open this New Year – 2019, with the message about the goodness of the Lord!    If you have had a year of struggle, pain, agony, lack, betrayals, loneliness and emptiness, let me encourage you today and say that God will change the scenario from barrenness to goodness of the Lord.  Say Amen. The scripture goes on to say that there would be an overflow of grain, new wine and oil…..whoa..that’s huge!  


Thanksgiving: Actually God gave me this promise about few days back; however, I was praying over it and He reconfirmed it to me.  Even though we may be in the valley of affliction, uncertainty or nothingness, we got to think about the goodness of God in the past and praise Him for it, the Bible says, O give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.(1 Chronicles 16:34) One of my messages that I preached to our Abide School students in the month of December 2018 is ‘O "Taste and see that the Lord is good!" (Ps. 34:8) That scripture in telugu is awesome and I made them memorize so that they don’t forget it, why don’t you also do that?  Several rounds of practices were done, dress rehearsals, audio recordings, script writing and enormous hard work was put for the Christmas program at Abide School, the entire team that includes teachers and our family were involved in it, to start with we performed in another school.  This was herculean task of carting around 30 students along with teachers in an open van, out of the school fully dressed with make-up, the make-up for students alone took around 2 and half hours, would you believe? No easy job friend.  Well, after the performance while the students were coming down, they were summoned to the Principal’s room of that school, appreciated and also each one of them were given a big imported chocolate , I was given a packet too. Ah! Do you see the goodness of God?  He watches your efforts, your patience, your steadfastness, your humility during the process, your efficiency, your determination, your commitment, your meticulous hard work and God would surely reveal His goodness in a mighty way in His time.  Trust and wait for His goodness!  Believe me, He will never fail!
