Disobedience takes the presence of God away from you: WARNING! Be warned that His presence is not guaranteed when you disobey His word, the Lord looked at Moses and said: Exodus 33:3” I will not go up in your midst, because you are an obstinate people, and I might destroy you on the way." Moses knew if God is not with them, they are doomed, so he pleaded with God and asked” "If Your presence does not go with us, do not lead us up from here. 16 "For how then can it be known that I have found favor in Your sight, I and Your people? Is it not by Your going with us, so that we, I and Your people, may be distinguished from all the other people who are upon the face of the earth?" Friend, our identity is when God walks with us!

We needed the bank manager approval which was very important for us to go further with a particular project in our ministry, the bank manager refused to even speak to us for one minute and said, he has no instructions to do that ( this happened during COVID period) Well, it took 3 months to find out relevant papers that clearly mentioned that the bank manager is responsible. God miraculously connected us to people who gave us information, during this period we were praying very hard for God to do a miracle. Finally taking those instruction printed sheet, we stepped into the cabin of the bank manager, now I spoke FIRMLY , I gave the sheet which said, it was his duty to do it. After reading that, he said, ‘SIT DOWN’, Ah! As I sat along with my husband in the bank manager’s cabin, I knew there was a ‘third person’ sitting in the third chair along with us, smiling as we victoriously got the papers signed, scanned and sent from his cabin. Victory WITH GOD!
Dual control: If you have been to driving schools, you know that each vehicle in the driving school is equipped with a passenger-side brake as a preventative measure to assure safer training and the vehicles have dual controls. Yes, when God is with us, He has the dual controls to our life. When I went for the driving school, I felt so HIGH, as I drove the vehicle in the midst of busy traffic for the first time, but all along the trainer who sat next to me had the controls. It feels safe to drive the car when you know the trainer is there next to you; likewise when your God is with you, nothing becomes impossible, if you are patient He will find a way for you.

Mr.Abdul Ahad Rah, 80 years old father of two sons who were jailed fifteen years back, pushed through a massive crowd and reached the first security cordon. He looked at the podium from where Mr.Narendra Modi, addressed the crowd and realized the futility of his attempt, because he was 30 metres away from the gathering. Mr.Rah carried a bunch of documents pertaining to his sons, when asked about his desperate effort to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said: “I deeply feel that the Prime Minister has a kind heart, I thought if I breached the cordon, the Prime Minister would let me talk to him. I just want to see my sons once before death takes me away.”
