GOD KNOWS YOUR JOURNEY:

Genesis 26:24 “The LORD appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; Do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you, and multiply your descendants, For the sake of My servant Abraham."

This chapter ministered to me, I’m sure , you would be comforted too!  After continuous fights, arguments, wanderings, frequent shifts and harassments, God finally SHOWS UP to Isaac in Beersheba. If I tell you that “I am a super-duper woman who never felt discouraged and had the urge of just throwing in the towel, then this sermon will not be rooted in integrity.   During the process of starting ABIDE SCHOOL, free school for the poor and abandoned children of Hyderabad, we were mocked, jeered and booed.  One particular officer told me, “we have enough free schools here, why do you have to come from Tamil Nadu to start a school here, without knowledge of the local language.’  Those words were daggers!  I felt absolutely lonely that day! I guess Isaac felt that way that night; enough is enough he thought may be.  But the Bible says, verse 24The LORD appeared to him the same night and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; Do not fear, for I am with you. I will bless you, and multiply your descendants, For the sake of My servant Abraham." This is called Father heart!

People can hate you, reject you, overlook you, block you on whatsapp, mock you, ignore you as though you don’t exist and humiliate you, but remember God knows when you are depleted of all energy and when you can take it no more, now ‘He shows up!’  The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph! The more people fight and reject you, remember God will MAKE UP FOR IT and will give you special appearances, clap hands for your Daddy! On one single day God showered on Joseph with: Pharaoh’s signet ring, clothed him in garments of fine linen and put gold necklace around his neck and much more(Genesis 41:42) God did that for all the rejection and pain Joseph endured for a long time, He would do that for you too!

Wow and wow!  There are certain injustices done to you that you feel ashamed to even share with others or talk with your children or spouse; however, God knows your pain, He will promptly shows up because HE is the balm that is required for us. He will whisper: “ I AM WITH YOU!” Wow, you can run against an army with those words, don’t you think? My husband and I, (with a young adult daughter going to college and my son going to  school at that time)  we started learning telugu, the local language.  Today we can speak, read, write and teach telugu to our students.  Both of us have written few songs in telugu as well….Unstoppable!

I would like to quote the words of Mahatma Gandhi and wind up:”First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” Hurray!
