The characteristics of the Lord to whom we pray are ;He listens to us,he knows us well and he looks after us.
He knows all our problems because we are in touch with him.Sometimes we feel lonely and feel sad because we assume that no one is with us in our worst days but the Lord is with us.
Even King David had similar feelings so we read in Psalm 31:12 ‘I have been forgotten like one who is dead;I have become like a broken vessel.’
Very often we come across situations when we find no one is willing to stand beside us in our bad days.Even the people whom we trusted or we had considered as our own leave us alone. That’s a miracle ,such situations drag us to the Lord and we decide to cling to him at any cost.
This teaches us a lesson that the Lord uses our so called beloved ones to behave in such a way that finally we are close to our Lord.
The Lord always thinks about his beloved ones just like a mother .A mother is not at ease so long her child is out of home.She tries to be in touch with as many people as possible to ensure that her child is safe and secure.If the child meets with an accident the mother is the first one to be at the spot with hope and courage other people may have negative thoughts of an injured person but the mother never allows a negative thought to grow in her mind about her child.
During this pandemic the Lord is controlling everything especially the well being of his beloved ones.Whenever our life boat seems to sway in the huge waves of the disturbed sea the Lord stands beside us.
The Lord is truly a loving father,that is why we find a great ,soothing message of hope ‘Whether you turn to the right or to the left,your ears will hear a voice behind you saying ng,”This is the way;walk in it.”
The Lord guides every step of ours because he won’t be able to tolerate our failure .The interesting fact is that to have the Lord as our guide we need to be in the light ,to be in grace .The evil one cannot guide us when we are in light and similarly the Lord cannot be with us when we are in darkness.
So it all depends on us whether we need the Lord as our guide or the evil one.Allowing the Lord to be among us is certainly very advantageous because in his presence nothing would dare to harm us ,not even the deadliest disease.
It is good to remember the fact that if we don’t clean our courtyard and allow wild plants,hedges and bushes to grow then there’s no doubt that venomous snakes will prefer to live in such areas.
Thanks a lot for reading.
