Deu 20:3-4, "And he shall say to them, 'Hear, O Israel: Today you are on the verge of battle with your enemies. Do not let your heart faint, do not be afraid, and do not tremble or be terrified because of them; for the LORD your God is He who goes with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you."

In the Bible we read about God as the delivering God. A God who delights in delivering and saving His children from all evil and from their enemies. Whenever Israelites faced the enemy, God told them that they need not to fear for anything, because the almighty God is with them who is able to protect them and deliver them. And in the whole Bible, we read how God miraculously delivered people who called on His name. They did not see defeat or destruction in their lives but only victory.

What type of deliverance God wants to give us?

1. God wants to deliver us from sin and bondage:
Bible tells us that we all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God and that we all need deliverance from our sins and bondages. Many try very hard to come out of their addictions, but are unable to come out. Many are in different kinds of sin and they do not know how to deal with those unwanted sin. But Jesus came in this world to deliver us from sin and bondages. He gave His precious life for us so that we could come out of our sin and live a holy life. If you have not yet accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, invite Him in your life. When Jesus will come into your life, He will cleanse you of your sin and give you victory over all addiction and bondage. He will deliver you.

2. God wants to deliver us from our enemies:
Once an army surrounded a particular country. That country was not a very strong one and the whole nation was terrified. One morning the army general of the country opened his Bible for reading and his eyes fell on the verse Josh 1:9, "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go."
The army general was greatly encouraged with those words and he felt a great confidence that God is going to be with him and that his army will prevail in the battle. He ordered his army to march forward and to fight. Fierce battle took place and finally the feeble nation won the battle.

Yes, there is a God who wants to give us victory in every area of our lives. He wants to give us victory over our enemies.

Are you going through tough battle in your life today? Are you afraid of tomorrow? If God is with you, you cannot see defeat in your life. Victory is yours if God is with you.

We wish you all a very happy and blessed 4th July.

Lord's Healing Power

By Vinod Isaac

let us read Mark 5:21-33 for our meditation
Mark 5:21 Now when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gathered to Him; and He was by the sea.
Mark 5:22 And behold, one of the rulers of the synagogue came, Jairus by name. And when he saw Him, he fell at His feet
Mark 5:23 and begged Him earnestly, saying, "My little daughter lies at the point of death. Come and lay Your hands on her, that she may be healed, and she will live."
Mark 5:24 So Jesus went with him, and a great multitude followed Him and thronged Him.
Mark 5:25 Now a certain woman had a flow of blood for twelve years,
Mark 5:26 and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.

Mark 5:27 When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment.
Mark 5:28 For she said, "If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well."
Mark 5:29 Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.
Mark 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched My clothes?"
Mark 5:31 But His disciples said to Him, "You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?'"Mark 5:32 And He looked around to see her who had done this thing.Mark 5:33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
Mark 5:34 And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."Mark 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, "Who touched My clothes?"

Mark 5:31 But His disciples said to Him, "You see the multitude thronging You, and You say, 'Who touched Me?'"Multitudes of people were thronging Jesus. Multitudes were following Jesus where ever he went. Some were there to see the miracles done by Jesus. Some were there to see what's going on. Some were there because there was a large crowd. Some were there because others were there. Some were there to receive healing. Some were there to make fun of Jesus. Some were there to listen to the words of Jesus and follow His words. Today many people are thronging Jesus. Many claim that they are following Jesus. Many people are part of the crowd that is going after Jesus. How many are really able to touch Jesus the way this woman touched Jesus. Other people were Just going along with the crowd but this woman had done something different. She touched Jesus with faith. You may be going along with the crowd. You may say that you are born in a Christian family. You attend church regularly. You help the poor. But is all that able to touch Jesus?

Is all that able to receive acceptance from Jesus? You may say, “I belong to such and such denomination.” But the question is, have you received what this woman received? Have you touched Jesus the way this woman touched? Have you ever put your faith on Jesus? Have you ever known Him from very close? If not you need to.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: If you want to know Jesus, you need to 1.) receive Him 2.) believe in His name. When you do that, you receive the right to become a child of God. You can not become a child of God by taking birth in a Christian family, or by doing charitable work. But only by knowing Jesus in your personal life. Only by receiving Jesus in your life. Jesus Himself said. in John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me." To reach the Father there is only one way and that way is Jesus. When you approach Jesus with faith and touch Him by faith lot of things happen. You gain access to what Jesus have. Jesus is holy and you have to receive holiness through Jesus. Jesus is eternal and you can have eternal life through Jesus. That's why John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." If you want to receive eternal life you need to believe in Jesus. If you want forgiveness of sins you need to come to Jesus because Jesus has paid all the penalty for your and my sins. He died on the cross for you and for me. And His blood cleanses us from all sins. This woman not only touched Jesus but also received healing. She had the sickness of flow of blood for twelve years. She had tried all the best doctors in the world. She emptied her bank balance and she was left with nothing. In that desperate situation she looked to Jesus. By faith she touched the hem of His garment and she was completely healed. Jesus is the healer. No sickness is too hard for Him. When Jesus asked who touched me this woman came and said it was she. We read in Mark 5:33-34
Mark 5:33 But the woman, fearing and trembling, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell down before Him and told Him the whole truth.
Mark 5:34 And He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be healed of your affliction."

Jesus said to her, "Daughter your faith has made you well." She had faith and that was the reason for her healing. I have heard people saying many times, “I do not know if it is the will of God to heal me or not.” This woman didn't wait for all those questions but she said in her heart if I just touch the hem of his garment I will be healed. Jesus wants to heal you. He wants to give you a perfect health.
He wants to say to you be healed of your sicknesses and afflictions. As soon as the woman touched Jesus, she was completely healed for Mark 5:29 says that Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction. She received an immediate healing and that healing can be yours if you believe in Jesus. Put your faith on Jesus. For He heals even today. He is a God who is same yesterday, today and forever. By His stripes we are healed. Are you suffering from sicknesses?

Have your doctors given up hope? Do you have sicknesses that have no cure? There is medicine available for your sicknesses. Look to Jesus. He will heal you and restore you to complete health. 2000 years ago when He was on the face of this earth, He healed the sick, He raised the dead, He cast out the demons. He is the all powerful God. He can perform miracle in your life. No matter how difficult your situation may be, Lord's healing power is for you to heal you and restore you.

Let us pray. Are you walking with the crowd that is following Jesus, but has not touched Him. Has not received forgiveness of sins and eternal life? You can ask Him to forgive you of your sins and you can ask Him to come in to your Heart. You can receive Him right now. You can become a child of God right away. Just look to Jesus. Ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you with His blood. If you want to do that pray this prayer after me. Lord Jesus I am a sinner. Please forgive me of my sins. Please cleanse me with your blood. Please make me clean. Please come into my heart. Help me to walk in your ways. I ask all this in Jesus name. Amen.

If you have prayed that prayer from the bottom of your heart. You are a child of God from now on. Read your Bible every day and pray every day.

Freedom

By Sherly Isaac

They went through affliction and hard bondage
but when they cried out to God of their fathers
Lord heard their prayers and looked on them
He looked on their affliction, labor and oppression

The LORD brought them out of Egypt
with a mighty hand and with an outstretched arm,
with great terror and with signs and wonders.
He has brought them to the land of prosperity
A land flowing with milk and honey

The LORD has taken them
And brought them out of the iron furnace,
out of Egypt, to be His people, an inheritance
To make them His own people whom He loved
To make them A blessed nation who love the Lord
And worship Him in Spirit and Truth

Freedom came for them though many years later
Freedom came for them from hard bondage
Freedom came for them from iron furnace
They are free because they cried out to God
and asked for the help of the almighty God!!
