Creation takes effort

Genesis 14:14”When Abram heard that his relative had been taken captive, he called out the 318 trained men born in his household and went in pursuit as far as Dan.”

It’s easy to dismantle but creation takes effort: hard work, determination, perseverance, sacrifice, innovative thoughts, patience etc. Besides the night-warden, I also take turns to stay at  Abide Angel Home, (Click HERE to know more about our Angel Home) they wake up for early morning prayer which we start at 5.30 am which means they get up fifteen minutes prior to it, brush their teeth, wash their face and then sit for prayer, as for me I wake up an hour earlier, complete my personal communion with God and then wake them up – so much goes with running a Children Home ; yes, I can hear someone ask, ‘what about your own family and children?’  Serving God demands certain amount of sacrifice!  Well, if you want to run it the way God wants you to do it, then you got to invest your ‘precious time’ into the work of God.  Anybody listening?  

 Abraham trained 318 men born in his home who later became mighty warriors.  Phew!  This portion never ceases to awe me!  What an effort! I train a bunch of kids but Abraham spent his whole day with these warriors who grew up with Abraham.  How important it is to have good ‘fathers’ who would bring up their children the right way.  With fathers busy tapping away their laptop and fiddling with their smartphones, the children hardly get any spiritual inputs except for getting admitted into swanky international schools.

A puny, skinny village girl joined me at the age of 12, she grew up in our home, prayed with us, learnt to read the Bible and also took water baptism under our guidance. Her hindu name was changed and we gave her a lovely Bible name.  After 14 years of working with us, we got her married to a young Christian boy who had double zeal for God.  Recently along with her two year old daughter they attended our three-days fire camp, her two year old daughter recited the 66 books of the Bible and captured the hearts of the people.  Look how the fire spreads!
