From the bottom of my heart I thank all of you who supported us with your tearful prayers and encouraging letters in this time of trouble. God has done a miracle for us. My dad is recovering. Please continue to pray for him that he could soon walk out of the hospital healed and healthy and glorify the name of the almighty God.

While going back and forth hospital and home one evening I got some time and I turned on the TV to look what was going on in this world. The news was just coming about powerful earthquake that killed more than 40,000 people in Pakistan and more than 1,350 in India. From last December we have seen at least five major catastrophic events that have killed thousands of people in each event. Still it seems that all these things are not over yet and are creating more devastation. Flood in east cost of North America, mudslide in Mexico, bird flu in Asia and now new strain of bird flu in Turkey. I started to think that, "what's happening to this world?" It looks all over the world there is chaos and devastation.

Some of the remote villages in Pakistan are completely unreachable. They are in high mountains. Before the earthquake there were no proper roads to reach in those remote villages now earthquake has made it more difficult or nearly impossible. One journalistic team walked two hours in the remote mountains and they met a family carrying one young man in a stretcher who already walked seven hours to get some medical help. When I saw that, I felt very sorry for those helpless people. There are people trapped in their homes and in their villages who are not getting any help. Those people may be thinking that, "who is going to help us in this troublesome time? From where help will come for us?"

David speaks from his own experience in Psa 121:1-8, "I will lift up my eyes to the hills; From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The LORD shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The LORD shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore."

With our limited powers we may not be able to do anything to help ourselves in dire situations but we can look to the almighty God who created heaven and earth. He can sure help us in the times of trouble. How wonderful it is to have almighty God on our side. How wonderful it is to seek the help of almighty God.

Are you trapped in the problems of your life. Today you may be in the midst of great needs and you may have lost all your hopes. Look to Jesus, He can help you to come out of your troubles and He will not allow your foot to be moved.

The Resurrection Power of God

By Sherly Isaac

I was watching one of the programs on TV called "It's Supernatural" A guest named Isaiah was giving his testimony. He was very wealthy man and his income was 27 million dollars per year. He was involved in drugs, gangs and prostitution and was called by newspapers "the vicious pimp of Hawaii". But he was raised in a very good Christian home where his mother and father believed in the mighty power of Lord Jesus Christ. God gave a word to his mother that, "he will not be the pimp but the preacher." In spite of it he continued in his sinful lifestyle.

Once he was shot in his brain that bullet is still there and on the face that bullet went down to his spinal cord. Then he was stabbed 16 times and was left in the alley to die. While he was there a vehicle ran over him. Two and half hours later he was rushed to the emergency ward of hospital and he was pronounced dead. His mother got a phone call saying, her son has been pronounced dead. She refused to accept doctor's report that her son was dead. She immediately prayed over the phone claiming the promises of God for her son and called life in his lifeless body in the name of Jesus. The person came back to life and got healed in the next two years but still continued in his sinful life. Three years later on Christmas day he got saved and dedicated his life for Jesus. His life completely changed.

God honored his Mother's prayer and raised him from the dead and using him for His glory. Bible tells us about the resurrecting power of God. When Jesus was in this world He raised many dead to life. One of them was Lazarus who was dead and already been in the tomb four days (john 11:17). Martha and Mary were both of his sisters were heartbroken because Jesus delayed coming there. But Jesus replied them saying in John 11:25, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live." Later Jesus raised Lazarus to life and he walked out of the tomb alive and well.

Likewise when Jesus died on the cross and was in the tomb, those who killed Jesus thought that it was the end of his life and his ministry but third day God raised Him from the dead. He walked out of the tomb gloriously and lives forever and forever. Bible tells us in Acts 13:33-35, "God has fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has raised up Jesus. As it is also written in the second Psalm: 'You are My Son, Today I have begotten You.' And that He raised Him from the dead, no more to return to corruption, He has spoken thus: 'I will give you the sure mercies of David.' Therefore He also says in another Psalm: 'You will not allow Your Holy One to see corruption.'"

The same God, the same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the grave can raise you from the dead situation you are facing. He can raise you from your dead works and sinful acts and can give you a new life. Paul says in Rom 8:10-11, "And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you."

Holy Spirit is the life giver. If you have not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you need to give your life to Jesus so that Holy Spirit can give you a new life. He not only gives life but He protects from all kinds of evil of this world and raises us above circumstances so that sins of the world may not rule over us.
