Discovering who you are in Christ – 2

By Sherly Isaac

Back in India my dad was a government official. From the day he joined on duty, he was entitled to receive everything necessary to live and maintain his status in the community including great salary, a big home, servants to do domestic work and government vehicle etc. At times when he was on duty and in some places where his life was in danger in those places he was given special protection and arm guards to do his work efficiently. Being a government servant, he could enjoy everything which government could offer.

If you are born again by the shed blood of Jesus, you are privileged to enjoy every blessing which God can offer. Because you are a child of God and being born in the family of God. David was a small boy but he could defeat the mighty power of lion or bear which came to hurt his flocks. As we read in 1 Sam 17:34-35, But David said to Saul, "Your servant used to keep his father's sheep, and when a lion or a bear came and took a lamb out of the flock, I went out after it and struck it, and delivered the lamb from its mouth; and when it arose against me, I caught it by its beard, and struck and killed it."

The same David had to flee for his life and he had to go through many difficult circumstances which he probably never thought about. His life was in danger and the king of the nation was after his life. In those terrible moments, in those hopeless situations God helped him to come out victoriously. The reason was simple because he acknowledged God as his Lord and Savior. The almighty God brought deliverance in his life no matter what he went through, no matter how hard the enemy pressed him to his wits end yet he came out triumphant. All the days of his life, enemy could not take over his life nor could destroy it because he walked in the ways of God.

The same God told His disciples to not worry about anything because He is the provider and sustainer. He said in Mat 6:25-26, "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin. and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”

Are you worried about tomorrow? Are you worried about you circumstances? Come to Jesus and give your burdens to Him. He will take care of you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. If you are not a child of God, you can become His child just by praying this simple prayer and confessing your sins to Him.

Lord Jesus, I am a sinner. Please forgive and forget all my sins. Wash me with your precious blood. Take away every worry from my heart which is eating me up. Fill my soul with great peace and joy that world cannot give. Today I accept you as my Lord and Savior. From now on I will walk in your ways. Thank you Jesus for making me your child. I give you all the glory to you. I pray this prayer in the mighty name of Jesus, amen.

Testimony of Nazeela Beevi - Part 12

Holy Spirit was building me to enable me to live under any circumstance. He was shaping me up just as a potter would give shape to his potteries. Today I am able to understand why God had taken me to different places at times. Because the food for which I am accustomed to, I may not have at Trivandrum. God trained me even in those days to adjust myself to every environment and to have all types of food. He built me even at that time. In that way God accepted me.

But my father and his friends were unable to get hold of me. At that time a servant of God had the vision that if he came across an orphan, a poor person wandering without help he has to give shelter to the person in his home. At that time this person came to know about me when people were asking, "who will give her shelter, who will give her shelter?" According to that vision I was given shelter in his house. He and his wife both are servants of God. They took care of me for six month.

When I was living with them my father thought in his heart that those who were giving me shelter are high ranking wealthy people. But in fact in those times I was given shelter by poor Christians who were laborers but who loved the Lord. God gave that type of thought in my father's heart and because of that he filed a case against me. In that case he brought all the evidences against those who gave me shelter accusing them that I was kidnapped by them and made to change my religion. He produced false evidence that I studied in an Arabic college. He proved that my age would be only fifteen by adding the date of my disappearance to the date of admitting to the college. But at that time I was twenty years old. I can only tell by my mouth that I was twenty years old but I had no evidence to prove that I was twenty years old.

So they called me in the police station to settle the case. Police officers said to me, "child, these are your parents. If you walk like this talking about Jesus that He is God and so on, your life will be spoiled." They told me to go with my parents. I said, "I can go, but I cannot deny my Jesus." Father was insisting to deny Jesus at that very moment and then only I can go with him. I said, "I can come, but I will not renounce Jesus." At that time settlement of the case did not materialize.

Then my father said, "let us do one thing, she is not denying Christ on the strength of the support of Christians and because of that she is not denying Christ. Something has to be done so that Christians could not support her or give her shelter. Then she will leave Christianity. So he asked not to settle the case there but to let it go to the court.

My father's intention was this. Because my age has been established as fifteen, the court will ask me to go with my parents. Evidence of age has already been presented in the court. If I refuse to go, either the court or the police have to give me shelter or I may be sent to rescue home. Because court has such rule that until a child is mature he/she should be sent to some shelter. If it happens then Christians could not support me and I will not have their support. By that time doing some manipulations he thought that he could take me home. My father planned like this.

So the case went to court. But let me tell you that though all the evidences were in favor of my father and all against me, but Jesus who is the true God was with me as true God. And because of that He turned all those false evidences in my favor.

The case was argued for six months in the court. And my father's attorney was highly skillful in his job. My father spent lot of money in that. But let me tell you my friends, no matter how much money you spend, no matter how much family pride you may have, if Jesus is with you, if Jesus' presence is with you, money cannot destroy His presence, family glory cannot take away His presence and cannot stop His work. Because God told me from the book of Amos 5:24, My judgment would run down as waters and righteousness as a mighty stream. We read in Amo 5:24, “But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.” Yes, No money could ever stop His judgment, no position or family status could ever do it, no authority could ever achieve it, no law could do it, I can declare it by my own experience.

I did not have education, I did not have wisdom, I did not have evidence, I did not have people who could witness for me, I do not have anybody or anything but His divine judgment was running down as water for me and because of that they could not stop His work of judgment for me.

For six months they argued the case in court. During those six months God was giving me assurance through His word as I said above. On the sixth month I lost the case, my father won. But when the time came for the issue of verdict, it was time for the court to go on vacation. Then the judge said, "at this time verdict can be given and we can hand over your daughter to you. But before handing over to you, we have to clear the record and keep complete record of, how the case came, how it was argued, and how we arrived at a settlement. All the records are available here but we have to finalize the records to be kept here. To do that it will take more time." So the court adjourned after fixing a date to meet next month.

My father went back happily because he won the case except for a delay of one month. While returning home I wept bitterly sitting in bus and asking God, "Oh God, Is it not you who told me that your judgment would run down as water? My family would come next month to take me home, what is your aim... would I face defeat?"
