Isaiah 59:1-2 (1) – Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. (NIV)

Jordan spent two months on the North Carolina Sea after his boat capsized. He immediately suffered an injured shoulder which hindered him from repairing the boat’s broken mast and other navigation systems. Therefore, he was left stranded on the sea, dehydrated but occasionally drinking rainwater and feeding on the fishes he caught with his shirts (nets). Meanwhile, his family had given up hope of finding him, but Jordan and his father, who was far away, never ceased praying, and God heard them!

One day, a German ship spotted Jordan’s broken boat and rescued him. The sailors were surprised at how he survived and had good health. What a miracle! For a human to pull through in such a terrible situation could only be divine, which brings to mind the story of Elijah, whom God fed by birds at Brook Cherith (1 Kings 17:1-6). Elijah never lacked anything during his stay in the creek.

Beloved, what is your own experience — is your life in deep troubles? If yes! Maybe you need to raise a hand for a lift. Let the Lord deliver you from that state of hopelessness and hardship (Isaiah 41:10-13). After all, today’s Bible reading assures us of God’s ability to hear and respond to our cry. However, it is only our sins that can stop us from being helped. Therefore, if need be, surrender all to Jesus now, for He cares for you! (Revelation 3:20).


Hymn: Softly and Tenderly, Jesus Is Calling – Will L. Thompson (1880)

1. Lord, I raise my hands in total submission. Please, rescue me from all forms of sorrow, failure, sickness, delays, joblessness and debts (Mention).


1. Thank God for His love and for keeping you through the issues of life.

2. Father, put an end to the episode of shame and disappointment in my life.

3. Where is the Lord God of Elijah? Arise and renew my strength and that of the Church.
