Trust and do good
Psalm 37:3 - Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Continuing the previous messages, today's message to us says we are having problems in our dwelling place (people, nature, sicknesses etc.) and with provisions all because we do believe and keep the Word.
Just to give you a testimony. A sister's place in Mira Road (a suburb of Mumbai) where I had just started to have sessions every month, at the first session the sister was telling me about her financial problems. This sister herself is very gifted person in the Lord (a healer like Benny Hinn). At the next session which was last Friday, she told us that she had gone to the market to bring fish and when she cut open the fish she found three small pieces (thin long wires) of gold.
The value may not have been very big but the Lord wanted to tell her 'do not try to put Me in a box, nothing is impossible to Me'.
Our God is capable of doing all things including protecting and providing us. It is our lack of faith and not abiding by His Word which is the cause of us having problems.
Jesus have given authority to His believers to command the situations around them to order, like He did to the rough sea, sicknesses or even to the dead to come back to life. It is our faithlessness and flesh which does not let us exercise this authority.
Yesterday one sister called me to ask me why the climate was so extreme and today's message explains that.

Lord God, You are Almighty God. You created this world and You have written the history of mankind. You know what is good for us and have given each and every one of us to make the choice to be saved. Lord God, we have chosen You through your Son Jesus Christ. Even though we know troubles are before us we rejoice in You, for You are our Shield and Provider. We trust in You. Help us to always keep our eyes focus on You always...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
