20 December 2022 Word by Snr Pastor, Pastor Darien Choo

Today’s Inspiration: “Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress. He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle.” Psalms‬ ‭107‬:‭6‬-‭7‬ ‭NIV.‬‬ Crying out to God is not a weakness but reveals meekness in our soul. Didn’t Jesus cried? Sure he did both for others and also for oneself. Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭14‬-‭16‬‭

Brokenness doesn’t seem to be a virtue in the world by it is one in the Kingdom of God. “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are might.” I Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭27‬ There is not one life which is the same as the other and God has His unique plans for every creation. When we get to know more of God, we also get to know more of ourselves and His unique plans for us. Brokenness reveals the revelation of the Cross. Strangely it is our pain that direct us to God’s path of restoration, healing and calling. Our pain and purpose are no different path but the same one just as our crisis and destiny are intertwined in life divinely. Glory to God!

Prayer: O Lord my God, open the eyes of my heart to face my pain as I cry out to you. Let me be vulnerable to your presence, grace and mercy. Heal me and I shall be healed. Save me and I shall be saved. It is your precious blood and the Cross of Calvary sets us free, in Jesus Name, Amen.
