Finding rest under the mighty hand of God – Trusting Him

Author: Voice Of God Ministry  //  Category: Messages

My Testimony

People should believe in Jesus Christ, who is the Giver of every good things for the glory of God. I decided in my prayer and surrendered everything to God’s will.God’s will is more valuable than even life.

I am 59 years old, to begin with… I happened to visit Christian Medical Hospitals Vellore in the mid of June 2012 and underwent medical treatment and took drugs. My condition was pretty dangerous and Doctor’s had diagnosed and confirmed the following,

The size of the tumour was reduced from  4x 3.7 cm  to 2 x 1.6 cm. Finally after three months  of  chemotherapy and one month rotation treatment , Doctor’s  advised me  to undergo an operation on 5th  February to remove the present tumour.  But, unfortunately during operation they found onenew bigtumour of size 4 x4 cm, so the Doctor’s removed this new tumour not touching the old. Further Doctor advised me to take chemotherapy for another three months only then they would decide about the next operation. At present am suffering a lot due to pain, I lay my comfort in the Lord.

The Lord carefully dealt with me and showed His will is more valuable than my life. God anointed me and dealt with me always and He proved me that He is with me and strengthens me to produce many new songs and many new messages during my suffering and really I thanks to God for His glorious situation. God’s will and wish is that people should depend only on God.

Moreover, my liver got infected that it always made me tired and I had high blood pressure. It was the Lord who carried me all through my sufferings, he gave me rest under His mighty arms.

Here, I want to express my deep thanks to each and every one who supported me through their sincere individual prayer and for the congregation prayers. Here, I reproduce the message which my Lord spoke to me and encouraged me.

Doctor’s diagnosed the following,


Human exception

We the people of God expect Miracle from theLord, there is nothing wrong. But, we expect things to happen as our human set of mind. When we pray immediately as our request it is to be done and always to be green signal from the God. Delaying us never expect and we want things to happen as we wish.  Holy Spirit is the real helper. But, not for our wishes .God will supply all our needs but, not for all our wishes.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.  For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8, 9. Is the voice of God!

Right Time for right doing

1. The Wedding at Canaan Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come

In John 2   The next day there was a wedding celebration in the village of Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there,   and Jesus and his disciples were also invited to the celebration.  The wine supply ran out during the festivities, so Jesus’ mother told him, “They have no more wine.” “Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.” But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”

2. Jesus and His Brothers – Now is not the right time for me to go, but you can go anytime

In John 7 .After this, Jesus travelled around Galilee. He wanted to stay out of Judea, where the Jewish leaders were plotting his death.  But soon it was time for the Jewish Festival of Shelters, and Jesus’ brothers said to him, “Leave here and go to Judea, where your followers can see your miracles!  You can’t become famous if you hide like this! If you can do such wonderful things, show yourself to the world!”  For even his brothers didn’t believe in him.

Jesus replied, “Now is not the right time for me to go, but you can go anytime.  The world can’t hate you, but it does hate me because I accuse it of doing evil. You go on. I’m not going to this festival, because my time has not yet come.”  After saying these things, Jesus remained in Galilee.

3.Jesus Prays in Gethsemane – Go ahead and sleep. Have your rest. But look—the time has come

Then Jesus went with them to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, “Sit here while I go over there to pray.”  He took Peter and Zebedee’s two sons, James and John, and he became anguished and distressed.  He told them, “My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” Matthew: 26:36

So he went to pray a third time, saying the same things again.  Then he came to the disciples and said, “Go ahead and sleep. Have your rest. But look—the time has come. The Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. up, let’s be going. Look, my betrayer is here!” Matthew: 26:45-46

4. The Ascension of Jesus

When the apostles were with Jesus, they kept asking him, “Lord, has the time come for you to free Israel and restore our kingdom?” He replied, “The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”Act 1.9


Let His will be done, even in any critical and hopeless situation.

5. When we have reason to no hope -Abraham’s life

You have not withheld from me even your son, your only son.”

God tested Abraham’s faith. “Abraham!” God called.

“Yes,” he replied. “Here I am.”   “Take your son, your only son—yes, Isaac, whom you love so much—and go to the land of Mariah. Go and sacrifice him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains, which I will show you GEN 22.1-2

When they arrived at the place where God had told him to go, Abraham built an altar and arranged the wood on it. Then he tied his son, Isaac, and laid him on the altar on top of the wood.  And Abraham picked up the knife to kill his son as a sacrifice.  At that moment the angel of the LORD called to him from heaven, “Abraham! Abraham!”

“Yes,” Abraham replied. “Here I am!”

“Don’t lay a hand on the boy!” the angel said. “Do not hurt him in any way, for now I know that you truly fear God. You have not withheld from me even your son, your only son.” GEN: 22.9-12

6.Escape through the Red Sea- the Egyptians shouted. “The LORD is fighting for them!”

Then the LORD said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the people to get moving!  Pick up your staff and raise your hand over the sea. Divide the water so the Israelites can walk through the middle of the sea on dry ground.  And I will harden the hearts of the Egyptians, and they will charge in after the Israelites. My great glory will be displayed through Pharaoh and his troops, his chariots, and his charioteers. When my glory is displayed through them, all Egypt will see my glory and know that I am the LORD!”

Then the angel of God, who had been leading the people of Israel, moved to the rear of the camp. The pillar of cloud also moved from the front and stood behind them.  The cloud settled between the Egyptian and Israelite camps. As darkness fell, the cloud turned to fire, lighting up the night. But the Egyptians and Israelites did not approach each other all night.

Then the Egyptians—all of Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and charioteers—chased them into the middle of the sea.  But just before dawn the LORD looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion. He twisted] their chariot wheels, making their chariots difficult to drive. “Let’s get out of here—away from these Israelites!” the Egyptians shouted. “The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt!”

But the people of Israel had walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, as the water stood up like a wall on both sides.  That is how the LORD rescued Israel from the hand of the Egyptians that day. And the Israelites saw the bodies of the Egyptians washed up on the seashore. When the people of Israel saw the mighty power that the LORD had unleashed against the Egyptians, they were filled with awe before him. They put their faith in the LORD and in his servant Moses   EX 14-15-29

7.Jesus Calms the Storm-While Jesus travels with them.

Then Jesus got into the boat and started across the lake with his disciples. Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.  The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”. Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith!” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm. It may be happen even Jesus present manually with us.  The disciples were amazed. “Who is this man?” they asked. “Even the winds and waves obey him! Matthew: 8.27-

The storm may be struck in our life even when Jesus presents in our life but , to under standard that God able to solve anything ,anytime.And it can be control and obey to his command is the proof.

And we know that in all things GOD works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (All the things which Almighty GOD did for us are for the good of us because they protect us from satan and his angels. You must love Almighty GOD all the time, because he loves you and he created you for his purpose.) Romans 8:28

8. While Jesus not travel with them-Jesus Walks on Water

Immediately after this, Jesus insisted that his disciples get back into the boat and cross to the other side of the lake, while he sent the people home.  After sending them home, he went up into the hills by himself to pray. Night fell while he was there alone.

Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves.  About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water.  When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified. In their fear, they cried out, “It’s a ghost!”

But Jesus spoke to them at once. “Don’t be afraid,” he said. “Take courage. I am here!]” Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.” “Yes, come,” Jesus said.

So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus.  But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted. Jesus immediately reached out and grabbed him. “You have so little faith,” Jesus said. “Why did you doubt me?”

 When they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped. Then the disciples worshiped him. “You really are the Son of God!” they exclaimed. Matt 14-22-32

9.In Job’s life- I will see him with my own eyes.

 I have been reduced to skin and bones and have escaped death by the skin of my teeth. “Have mercy on me, my friends, have mercy, for the hand of God has struck me.

Must you also persecute me, like God does?  Haven’t you chewed me up enough?

“Oh, that my words could be recorded. Oh, that they could be inscribed on a monument,

That they were graven with an iron chisel and filled with lead, engraved forever in the rock. “But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, and he will stand upon the earth at last. And after my body has decayed, yet in my body I will see God! I will see him for myself. Yes, I will see him with my own eyes. I am overwhelmed at the thought!  JOB: 19 20-27

10. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego’s Life-The Blazing Furnace

Nebuchadnezzar was so furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego that his face became distorted with rage. He commanded that the furnace be heated seven times hotter than usual.  Then he ordered some of the strongest men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace.  So they tied them up and threw them into the furnace, fully dressed in their pants, turbans, robes, and other garments. And because the king, in his anger, had demanded such a hot fire in the furnace, the flames killed the soldiers as they threw the three men in.  So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, securely tied, fell into the roaring flames.

But suddenly, Nebuchadnezzar jumped up in amazement and exclaimed to his advisers, “Didn’t we tie up three men and throw them into the furnace?”

“Yes, Your Majesty, we certainly did,” they replied. “Look!” Nebuchadnezzar shouted. “I see four men, unbound, walking around in the fire unharmed! And the fourth looks like a God!

Then Nebuchadnezzar came as close as he could to the door of the flaming furnace and shouted: “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, servants of the Most High God, come out! Come here! “So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stepped out of the fire.  Then the high officers, officials, governors, and advisers crowded around them and saw that the fire had not touched them. Not a hair on their heads was signed, and their clothing was not scorched. They didn’t even smell of smoke!

Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise to the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego! He sent his angel to rescue his servants who trusted in him. They defied the king’s command and were willing to die rather than serve or worship any god except their own God. Therefore, I make this decree: If any people, whatever their race or nation or language, speak a word against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, they will be torn limb from limb, and their houses will be turned into heaps of rubble. There is no other God who can rescue like this!” DENI 3.19

God’s and the Human way of thinking’s impossible will be possible by God for anything any time.

1. “Why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?”

As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. “Rabbi,” his disciples asked him, “why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?”

“It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered. “This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.  We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us The night is coming, and then no one can work.  But while I am here in the world, I am the light of the world.”

Then he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and spread the mud over the blind man’s eyes.  He told him, “Go wash yourself in the pool of Siloam” (Siloam means “sent”). So the man went and washed and came back seeing! John 91-7

2. Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died.

But Martha, the dead man’s sister, protested, “Lord, he has been dead for four days. The smell will be terrible

Jesus had stayed outside the village, at the place where Martha met him. When the people who were at the house consoling Mary saw her leave so hastily, they assumed she was going to Lazarus’s grave to weep. So they followed her there.  When Mary arrived and saw Jesus, she fell at his feet and said, “Lord, if only you had been here, my brother would not have died.”John 11.30-32

But Martha, the dead man’s sister, protested, “Lord, he has been dead for four days. The smell will be terrible.” John 11-39

Then Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, thank you for hearing me.  You always hear me, but I said it out loud for the sake of all these people standing here, so that they will believe you sent me.”  Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!”  And the dead man came out, his hands and feet bound in grave clothes, his face wrapped in a head cloth. Jesus told them, “Unwrap him and let him go!” John 11.40-44

3 .The healing of Naaman

I expected him to wave his hand over the leprosy and call on the name of the LORD his God and heal me!-Naaman

At this time Aramean raiders had invaded the land of Israel, and among their captives was a young girl who had been given to Naaman’s wife as a maid.  One day the girl said to her mistress, “I wish my master would go to see the prophet in Samaria. He would heal him of his leprosy.”

So Naaman told the king what the young girl from Israel had said.  “Go and visit the prophet,” the king of Aram told him. “I will send a letter of introduction for you to take to the  4.king of Israel.” So Naaman started out, carrying as gifts 750 pounds of silver, 150 pounds of gold,[b] and ten sets of clothing. 6 The letter to the king of Israel said: “With this letter I present my servant Naaman. I want you to heal him of his leprosy.”

When the king of Israel read the letter, he tore his clothes in dismay and said, “This man sends me a leper to heal! Am I God, that I can give life and take it away? I can see that he’s just trying to pick a fight with me.”

But when Elisha, the man of God, heard that the king of Israel had torn his clothes in dismay, he sent this message to him: “Why are you so upset? Send Naaman to me, and he will learn that there is a true prophet here in Israel.”

So Naaman went with his horses and chariots and waited at the door of Elisha’s house.  But Elisha sent a messenger out to him with this message: “Go and wash yourself seven times in the Jordan River. Then your skin will be restored, and you will be healed of your leprosy.”

But Naaman became angry and stalked away. “I thought he would certainly come out to meet me!” he said. “I expected him to wave his hand over the leprosy and call on the name of the LORD his God and heal me!  Aren’t the rivers of Damascus, the Abana and the Pharpar, better than any of the rivers of Israel? Why shouldn’t I wash in them and be healed?” So Naaman turned and went away in a rage.

But his officers tried to reason with him and said, “Sir if the prophet had told you to do something very difficult, wouldn’t you have done it? (In this connection if Elisha asked even 50% of his kingdom he will be ready offering with cheerfully or even more 10% he may not be upset ) So you should certainly obey him when he says simply, ‘Go and wash and be cured!’”  So Naaman went down to the Jordan River and dipped himself seven times, as the man of God had instructed him. And his skin became as healthy as the skin of a young child’s, and he was healed!

Then Naaman and his entire party went back to find the man of God. They stood before him, and Naaman said, “Now I know that there is no God in all the world except in Israel. So please accept a gift from your servant.” But Elisha replied, “As surely as the LORD lives, whom I serve, I will not accept any gifts.” And though Naaman urged him to take the gift, Elisha refused. 2 king. 5-2-15


4. Elisha Helps a Poor Widow. “Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied“Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied

One day the widow of a member of the group of prophets came to Elisha and cried out, “My husband who served you is dead, and you know how he feared the LORD. But now a creditor has come, threatening to take my two sons as slaves.”

“What can I do to help you?” Elisha asked. “Tell me, what do you have in the house?”

“Nothing at all, except a flask of olive oil,” she replied. And Elisha said, “Borrow as many empty jars as you can from your friends and neighbors.  Then go into your house with your sons and shut the door behind you. Pour olive oil from your flask into the jars, setting each one aside when it is filled.”

So she did as she was told. Her sons kept bringing jars to her, and she filled one after another.  Soon every container was full to the brim!“Bring me another jar,” she said to one of her sons.“There aren’t any more!” he told her. And then the olive oil stopped flowing.

When she told the man of God what had happened, he said to her, “Now sell the oliveil and pay your debts, and you and your sons can live on what is left over.” 2 Kings 4 1-7

5.Elisha and the Woman from Shunem

Then she said, “Did I ask you for a son, my lord? And didn’t I say, ‘Don’t deceive me and get my hopes up’

One day Elisha went to the town of Shunem. A wealthy woman lived there, and she urged him to come to her home for a meal. After that, whenever he passed that way, he would stop there for something to eat.

She said to her husband, “I am sure this man who stops in from time to time is a holy man of God. Let’s build a small room for him on the roof and furnish it with a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp. Then he will have a place to stay whenever he comes by.”

One day Elisha returned to Shunem, and he went up to this upper room to rest.  He said to his servant Gehazi, “Tell the woman from Shunem I want to speak to her.” When she appeared,  Elisha said to Gehazi, “Tell her, ‘We appreciate the kind concern you have shown us. What can we do for you? Can we put in a good word for you to the king or to the commander of the army?’”

“No,” she replied, “my family takes good care of me.” Later Elisha asked  Gehazi, “What can we do for her?”Gehazi replied, “She doesn’t have a son, and her husband is an old man.”

“Call her back again,” Elisha told him. When the woman returned, Elisha said to her as she stood in the doorway,  “Next year at this time you will be holding a son in your arms!”

“No, my lord!” she cried. “O man of God, don’t deceive me and get my hopes up like that.”

But sure enough, the woman soon became pregnant. And at that time the following year she had a son, just as Elisha had said. One day when her child was older, he went out to help his father, who was working with the harvesters.  Suddenly he cried out, “My head hurts! My head hurts!”

His father said to one of the servants, “Carry him home to his mother.”

So the servant took him home, and his mother held him on her lap. But around noontime he died.  She carried him up and laid him on the bed of the man of God, then shut the door and left him there.  She sent a message to her husband: “Send one of the servants and a donkey so that I can hurry to the man of God and come right back.”

“Why go today?” he asked. “It .time you will be holding a son in your arms!”“No, my lord!” she cried. “O man of God, don’t deceive me and get my hopes up like that.” So she saddled the donkey and said to the servant, “Hurry! Don’t slow down unless I tell you to.”

As she approached the man of God at Mount Carmel, Elisha saw her in the distance. He said to Gehazi, “Look, the woman from Shunem is coming. 26 Run out to meet her and ask her, ‘Is everything all right with you, your husband, and your child?’”

“Yes,” the woman told Gehazi, “everything is fine.”

But when she came to the man of God at the mountain, she fell to the ground before him and caught hold of his feet. Gehazi began to push her away, but the man of God said, “Leave her alone. She is deeply troubled, but the LORD has not told me what it is.”

Then she said, “Did I ask you for a son, my lord? And didn’t I say, ‘Don’t deceive me and get my hopes up’?” Then Elisha said to Gehazi, “Get ready to travel; take my staff and go! Don’t talk to anyone along the way. Go quickly and lay the staff on the child’s face.”

But the boy’s mother said, “As surely as the LORD lives and you yourself live, I won’t go home unless you go with me.” So Elisha returned with her. Gehazi hurried on ahead and laid the staff on the child’s face, but nothing happened. There was no sign of life. He returned to meet Elisha and told him, “The child is still dead.” When Elisha arrived, the child was indeed dead, lying there on the prophet’s bed.  He went in alone and shut the door behind him and prayed to the LORD.  Then he lay down on the child’s body, placing his mouth on the child’s mouth, his eyes on the child’s eyes, and his hands on the child’s hands. And as he stretched out on him, the child’s body began to grow warm again!  Elisha got up, walked back and forth across the room once, and then stretched himself out again on the child. This time the boy sneezed seven times and opened his eyes!

Then Elisha summoned Gehazi. “Call the child’s mother!” he said. And when she came in, Elisha said, “Here, take your son!”  She fell at his feet and bowed before him, overwhelmed with gratitude. Then she took her son in her arms and carried him downstairs.2 king-4-37

 6. Jesus Anointed at Bethany

It should have been sold and the money given to the poor.”  Not that he cared for the poor.-Judas

Six days before the Passover celebration began, Jesus arrived in Bethany, the home of Lazarus—the man he had raised from the dead.  A dinner was prepared in Jesus’ honour. Martha served, and Lazarus was among those who ate with him. Then Mary took a twelve-ounce jar expensive perfume made from essence of nard, and she anointed Jesus’ feet with it, wiping his feet with her hair. The house was filled with the fragrance.

But Judas Iscariot, the disciple who would soon betray him, said,  “That perfume was worth a year’s wages. It should have been sold and the money given to the poor.”  Not that he cared for the poor—he was a thief, and since he was in charge of the disciples’ money, he often stole some for himself.

Jesus replied, “Leave her alone. She did this in preparation for my burial.  You will always have the poor among you, but you will not always have me.” John 12-1-8


I would like to add on, Say if there was an open meeting or a conference that was conducted with a huge crowd of people, say nearly a lakh of people, in the midst of the meeting the preacher calls two of the people by name, saying “Christy! The Lord heals you”, “Marshal, your problems will be solved”. The remaining people might think, ‘Oh we might be a lower than the one called by name’, No dear friends! Each and every one of us are precious in the sight of God. If not in front of the crowd might be latter the Lord will surely listen to your prayers and perform miracle, so please dear ones never ever let down your heart. There is a time for everything, in His due time the Lord will do wonders in your life and will make you a testimony. All you need to do is to trust in the Lord and do not lose your faith.

God did not answer Paul’s prayer and He did not release his thorn, similarly God did not forgive Moses although he kept on asking for forgiveness, he was unable to enter into the land of Canaan. So dear ones let us surrender ourselves to the Lord and leave it for his will, which will be best for us.

In the Scriptures, we find a blind man shouting, ‘Son of David! Have mercy on me’, while the apostles and others asked him to calm down, the Lord called him and healed him. So we might be cornered and left alone by others, still do not lose your faith continuously trust in the Lord.

It’s no wonder that God was forever encouraging those whom trust him always. “Be strong; be courageous, be careful.” In fact, He specifically told His finest, “Do not be afraid!” Why? Because, they were!

  •  God told Abraham, “Do not be afraid.”
  •  God told Isaac, “Do not be afraid.”
  • God told Jacob, “Do not be afraid.”
  • God told Moses—on three different occasions—”Do not be afraid.”
  •  Three times God told Joshua, “Do not be afraid.”
  • God told Elijah, “Do not be afraid.”
  • God told Ezekiel, “Do not be afraid.”
  • God told Jeremiah, “Do not be afraid.”
  • God told Daniel, “Do not be afraid.”
  • On 10 occasions Jesus told His disciples, “Do not be afraid.”
  • Twice God told Paul, “Do not be afraid.”

The list continues today among us. . Dear beloved may the Lord bless you and your family, Contact us if you really wants to support our Ministry. I personify request each and every one to kindly pray for me. As far we are living let we update our Lord’s command Love each other. Amen.

Servant of God

Bro. David Samuel.
