By Sherly Isaac

Jesus said that human beings are more valuable than the grass of the field or the beautiful flowers or the beautiful birds you see around you. If God cares for those less-valuable things which today and tomorrow will be no more, how much more will God care for you? A few years back we planted radish in our garden. At the end of the season we left some of the plants to collect seeds from it. When the pod came up and when seeds were formed and when I opened the pod, I was completely amazed to see that those tiny seeds were surrounded by something like soft cushion or foam like thing. I wondered why these tiny seeds needed such big protection.

Then the other day I was peeling garlic and I thought why each and every clove needed to have such peel after peels of covering? It takes much time to peel it. Even so many types of garlic peelers are available in the market and none of them make the peeling job easy! Isn't it amazing that God cares for those tiny things this much! Jesus said in Matthew 6:28-30, "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?"

Jesus also said in Matthew 6:26, "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?" Those little birds just fly here and there and we least care about their food and water. Some people like my sister keeps some food and water for the birds but most of the people never care about them yet they get their food and they don't just fall from the sky and die. If God cares for such small, insignificant creatures then why not He will care for His children who have known His name?

At times we worry too much about our lives. I am sure all of us at some point of our lives would reach to places where we think, now what? what's next? When things does not go well as we have planned, when suddenly some tragedy struck us, when suddenly we see the opposite of what we have planned in our lives, we feel dejected. Worry hits us and we feel as if our world has collapsed right before our eyes. But Jesus is asking us in two simple words, "Why worry?" He tells us, "Why worry when your Heavenly Father worries for you and He cares for you." Bible also tells us that our days are in the hands of God.

If we have given our lives in the mighty hands of Jesus, we need not to worry because God Himself worries for us. He will provide for every need of us. Psalmist says in Psalms 37:25, "I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread."

You can see how much God cares for His children. Because God cares for us, He left His heavenly abode, humbled Himself, took the form of a man and went up to the cross. He gave His precious blood on the cross so that we could live forever and not die in our sins. Today, there is a way out, for getting rid of our sins and for solving all our problems we face in this world. If we just come to Jesus, He is ready to take away our sins and solve our problems. He is ready to worry for us if we just place our lives in the hands of Jesus.

The Visions, The Dreams And the Supernatural - Part 20

By Sherly Isaac

God has spoken in the past and had revealed His plans in advance. To do that He uses various methods, sometimes He gives dreams to people. Sometimes He shows things through visions or gives prophecy to prophets etc.

One of such incident we read in Genesis where the king sees a dream and his heart was so troubled that he could not sleep. He called all his wise men and people who could interpret his dream but none could tell him what his dream was about. But later on his butler told the king that when he was in prison Joseph interpreted his as well as his fellow prisoner's dreams and they were fulfilled exactly as interpreted. So the king commanded that Joseph be brought before him and when Joseph came he could interpret the meaning of the dream which the king saw.

We can read this story in Genesis 41:15-24 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that you can understand a dream, to interpret it." So Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, "It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph: "Behold, in my dream I stood on the bank of the river. Suddenly seven cows came up out of the river, fine looking and fat; and they fed in the meadow. Then behold, seven other cows came up after them, poor and very ugly and gaunt, such ugliness as I have never seen in all the land of Egypt. And the gaunt and ugly cows ate up the first seven, the fat cows. When they had eaten them up, no one would have known that they had eaten them, for they were just as ugly as at the beginning. So I awoke. Also I saw in my dream, and suddenly seven heads came up on one stalk, full and good. Then behold, seven heads, withered, thin, and blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them. And the thin heads devoured the seven good heads. So I told this to the magicians, but there was no one who could explain it to me."

Genesis 41:25-36, Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "The dreams of Pharaoh are one; God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do: The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads are seven years; the dreams are one. And the seven thin and ugly cows which came up after them are seven years, and the seven empty heads blighted by the east wind are seven years of famine. This is the thing which I have spoken to Pharaoh. God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do. Indeed seven years of great plenty will come throughout all the land of Egypt; but after them seven years of famine will arise, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine will deplete the land. So the plenty will not be known in the land because of the famine following, for it will be very severe. And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass. Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years. And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. Then that food shall be as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt, that the land may not perish during the famine."

Genesis 41:37-42, "So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants. And Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?" Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, "Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you." And Pharaoh said to Joseph, "See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt." Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph's hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck."

You can see how marvelously God showed the whole plan for the future to the king of Egypt through dream and how Joseph could interpret the dream. Even today God wants to tell us what happened in the background in the past and what is going to happen in the future. At times events happen that we do not understand (what happened or what is happening) but God can pinpoint what those things are.

I want to share one of the visions that my brother Vinod Isaac had. One of his friends lost his suitcase with lot of cash. Actually he gave that suitcase to an employee of his office to do some office work in some other city. A few days later he got the information that someone had stolen the suitcase during his journey. Now my brother's friend was very much worried because it had the salaries of all the other employees in that suitcase. With heavy heart he shared his concerns to my brother. And Vinod prayed over it and he saw two visions. Vision was something like this:
1. A narrow un tarred pathway having stonewalls on the side.
2. Inside in a room some type of wooden rack is kept. It looked like bookshelf or something like that, and near by this shelf there was a suitcase.

He did not get what the vision meant. So he prayed and God said, "don’t worry about it, just tell this vision to your friend as it is." So he told that vision to his friend.

His friend started thinking about it, but there was no clue what it could be and where this place could be located. He searched some places but could not find any clue. After 1-2 days later he was just shopping near by his house and he saw his employee’s brother who was in a laundry shop. He thought, ‘they do not have that much money to lauder clothes, how come he is in this shop.’ So quietly he started to follow him from a distance. As he followed, he went through a new route which was shortcut to his house and through which Vinod's friend had not gone before. He was amazed to see the stone walls and narrow winding road exactly as Vinod saw in his vision. When the friend reached the house of his employee the more surprising thing was waiting for him. He found the wooden rack in his house and found the suitcase near by it. He knew that the suitcase was not stolen but the employee had lied to him and had taken all the money.

Unless God had shown the things, my brother's friend would never have known that the employee had cheated him. Dreams and visions from God are very unique and very marvelous. Bible says in Acts 2:17-18,"'And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams. And on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days; And they shall prophesy."

God is calling people who could see dreams and visions to bring heavenly plans for people and for nations. Are you ready for those moments?
