I was working in Bangalore in the year 2013. My company was always paying my salary after a delay. Apart from this, I was going through a phase of disappointments and rejection from my own people without any reason. People took away most of my blessings. I struggled hard to forgive the people who came against me.
I attended a week of fasting prayer in a church at Bangalore during September 2013. Three days after the fasting prayer, I received a call from a foreign country asking for my resume. I didn’t apply for job in any of the foreign country. The recruiters saw my profile that was updated four years ago and called me. That is possible only by God. I was recruited for the job with out an interview.
After prayer, God revealed through one of the prophets that it was His plan to take me to a foreign land and bless me.
Today, I’m blessed and delivered from unforgiveness. God blessed with both spiritual and earthly blessings. God blessed me with an apartment in the same place where I lost my inheritance. Glory to God.
In 2013, as I felt an uneasiness in my chest and stomach, I sought an appointment with doctors at Apollo Hospitals. I settled for the EXECUTIVE Health check-up though it was thrice costly than the MASTER Health check-up and was usually prescribed only to people above 40.
The results came with Diabetes and a Fatty Infiltration of the liver-stage 2. A group of Doctors and Dietitians explained how I need to live longer for my kids who were just 2.5 & 5 yrs old then and how serious the problem is considering that my Dad had died of Diabetes when he was just 55.
I had two sheets in hand, a Fact Sheet which was my medical report and Faith Sheet which was a compilation of promises from the Word of God that I had been putting together for years. I carefully preserved the medical report and took it with me to office everyday as a reminder to cut down on the binge eating that is a result of corporate dinning and HR luncheons, almost every week.
I started READING THE PROMISES OF GOD and at one point started talking to my Liver and Pancreas, claiming those promises. I told them that BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS CHRIST YOU LIVER AND PANCREAS ARE HEALED (Isaiah 53:5, 1 John 2:24) AND SO I COMMAND YOU TO WORK ACCORDING TO YOUR JOB DESCRIPTION AND CALLING. You shall perform to the best that God created you to be
I had to consciously KEEP CLEAR OF THE FEAR THAT PEOPLE and DOCTORS RAISED and had to TALK TO MY MIND TO GET BACK TO THE WORD OF GOD.
I was checking my sugar levels and even after heavy Non-Veg food and sweets served in Weddings and Corporate gatherings, my sugar levels were normal and is still. It’s been 3 years and 7 months since I stopped taking those medicines. I ride bicycles for Kms on the trot and can walk 10kms or climb a flight of stairs quickly without fatigue. There is no 20 times to the loo for urinating as a result of diabetes because AM PERFECTLY HEALED. HALLELUJAH
The Word of God in Proverbs 18:21 says that Death and LIFE ARE IN THE POWER OF THE TONGUE: and they that love it SHALL EAT THE FRUIT THEREOF.
Dear beloved, let’s start SPEAKING CONSCIOUSLY about what THE WORD OF GOD SAYS ABOUT A PROBLEM more than what the facts are. (Isaiah 55:11, Hebrews 4:12)

Dear Friends in Christ, I work for a MNC in Chennai. I had this desire to visit USA at least once. In 2014, I had the opportunity to travel but that was stalled due to budget issues. Again, towards the end of 2014, I was offered an opportunity to travel for 6 months but I had to reject it since my wife was conceived for the second time, the first being a miscarriage. I took this tough call after Jesus prompted me to do so during a fellowship meeting at Church. So now, the management was not happy with my decision, rightly so, because no one ever rejects offer to travel to USA! I just cannot ask for another opportunity.
I just prayed to Jesus to lead me and continued with my work.
You must have heard about CSR – Corporate Social Responsibility in your organizations. Similarly, our organization had one too. I was just an ordinary volunteer. I did what I can during my spare time and also encouraged many volunteers to give their time back to the community at large.
In Oct 2016, I got an email stating that I had won the Global Volunteer Award and a citation would be given to me by the CEO of the company in the headquarters in NYC. Initially I thought this was not going to happen because I had to be in USA by December 1st week and I did not have B1/B2 visa required for the travel. So, the company processed the VISA and I was all set for the VISA interview. Remember those were “Trump” days and B1 visas were rejected very frequently unless it was for a business purpose that cannot be avoided. The VISA desk in my office was helping me prepare for the interview. They said “Don’t tell anything about the award. Just tell them that you are going for a business meeting”. This did not go well with me. I decided if I had to go, I will tell the truth and go. The only purpose was to meet the CEO and receive the award.
So, the interview day had come and I was lined up before the counter. Many B1/B2 visas were rejected that day. I just hoped in Jesus. My turn came up. The US VISA representative quizzed me about the purpose of my visit. I instantly told him that I’m getting and award from the CEO of my company so my presence is required there. The VISA representative congratulated me and asked a series of other questions related to my work, family and salary. He took a blue form (221g I guess). This form was being handed over to the rejected candidates for any kind of clarification. I just cannot afford this because there would be a delay in VISA stamping. He was about to hand over the form to me but suddenly took it back saying he needed to hold my passport. He did not verify even one of the documents I had taken with me. I took leave but was totally confused whether he will approve the VISA.
Jesus told me very clearly. It is HE who approves the travel not the VISA guys!
As assured by my God, I received the stamping in the next 2 days. I was so thrilled I shared with all my friends, relatives, my fellowship members and church. The travel was taken care entirely by my company and I was privileged to travel in BUSINESS CLASS in Qatar Airways! Many who heard this were so amazed at what Jesus was doing in my life.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us. (Ephesians 3:20)
Yes, it’s Jesus who did this and I had a safe and comfortable journey.
I had the unique opportunity to meet the CEO of my company along with the board members. In fact I had the opportunity to meet my US counterparts in New Jersey and also my relatives in Pennsylvania and Baltimore. The entire journey was like a dream come true and I truly thank JESUS for his blessings.

Around 7 months before my wife Susan developed a small cyst in her neck and we initially ignored it as an infection. A few months later another one came up and this time we went to the doctors and after a series of Blood tests, Ultrasound and Biopsy she was diagnosed with Stage 2 Thyroid Cancer. We just froze hearing the news and it was easily the saddest and toughest moment in our lives. Our immediate prayer was ”Why me Lord?”and why did you allow this in our life.
We were advised with the next steps which needed an extensive surgery followed by Radioactive Iodine treatment. The surgery was successful without any complications and was done by Dr.Paul M Jacob, one of the best Endocrine surgeons in the country and his wonderful team @ CMC Vellore (The best and most ethical hospital in our country). Post surgery, we were advised to be ready for a long quarantined radioactive treatment for residual removals and to check if the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Staying in the hospital exposed us to the real needs of life looking at the suffering fellow patients who needed love, care and emotional support. Our hearts were moved seeing many suffering patients. We were asked to take the isotope body scan and be ready to get admitted for the radioactive iodine treatment. Life was really tough trying to balance work, kids and the medical process. All through this we knelt down as a family praying to Jesus for a healing miracle and also asked our close friends to support us with prayer. This week when we finally did the isotope body scan and blood tests, a Big Miracle happened. The doctors were surprised that they could not find even a single cancerous cell in the body (not even a trace) and there was complete healing. Less than 1 percent of the cancer patients get healed without radioactive treatment and by the grace of Jesus, Susan is now officially cancer clean and a cancer survivor.
Staying through in the hospital and battling this deadly disease, Susan has a desire to help cancer patients and has started a new organization called ‘CHRISTCAN’. The word CAN taken from Cancer and the word which says: ‘I CAN do all things through Christ who strengthens me’. Christcan will specifically work with young kids who have lost either of their parents due to Cancer and also with young women cancer patients. We would have never done something like this if we had not gone through this phase of successfully battling cancer.
So the next time you have a problem, do not ask “Why me, God ? ” rather ask “What through me, God?”. Never ever Give Up!

Heard a moaning noise, when I got my sleep disturbed at 02:40AM on 18th June 2016. What I have seen in next minute made me to scream ‘Jesus!!! Help me out’…..
I have been deputed to the US for a long-term assignment as an IT – Portfolio manager with an offshore team in India. Usually, if I go to sleep late after finishing offshore teleconference meetings (that is the nature of working in onshore-offshore model with many IT companies), I cannot easily wake up for next 5-6 hours unless the alarm buzzes repeatedly at high pitch or my wife or son awakes me in person.
On 18th June 2016, after finishing my long day with offshore teleconference meetings till 01:30 AM, I hit my bed with a small prayer as I was completely tired. Suddenly, I heard a moaning noise at 02:40AM, the noise was very feeble but I woke up from my sleep, disturbed. This was totally unusual for me to wake up in the wee hours only after hour of sleep when the body is completely stripped off energy. When I woke up and rushed to see the source of the moaning noise. What I saw made me to scream ‘Jesus!!! Help me’. My wife was unconscious in the restroom with her head struck in a narrow space in a corner of the room and I could not see her face. I tried to pull her out carefully as her head was found twisted. Somehow, I pulled her head out from that narrow space and made her to lie down flat on the floor. By sprinkling water and giving her some to drink, I got her to a conscious state and then I made her to lie on the bed. Later I got to know that, 5-7 minutes back only this had happened and God woke me up in the wee hours by sending His angel.
First miracle was : The Lord who does not slumber, made me to wake up in the wee hour at the right time to hear the very feeble moaning noise and made me to attend critical medical situation
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. Psalms 121:3 & 4
As a basic first aid, I checked her blood pressure, it was very low in the range of 60-70 though she was taking medication for high blood pressure. She was found very weak and pale. After 15-20 minutes of rest, I rushed to an emergency room in my locality. As there was no doctor except some paramedics/nurses, they asked me to take her to nearest bigger hospital with all the facilities. I got admitted her in ICU at 04:00AM and all the blood tests were done. She was getting better and her blood pressure fluctuation was monitored. After 45 min in the ICU, she wanted to use the restroom, I was helping her to walk towards the restroom and she was leaning on me. After 2 minutes of slow walk within 15 meters, she lost her consciousness the 2nd time in my own hand and collapsed to the ground. Bunch of nurses rushed to the spot and got her to the bed and connected her back to the monitors. What I had seen was really shocking as her blood pressure was very low in the range of 20-25.
The 2nd miracle was: my wife re-gained her blood pressure very fast from 20-25 to 60-70 in the next 20 minutes without any major medical complications.
After seeing the 2nd time recovery with blood pressure readings on the monitor, I realized the critical medical condition of my wife that she was undergoing during 1st time pass-out at home and she should have been carried only in ambulance. Thank God! It was His amazing strength that made her to come down from 1st floor to ground floor and walking up to car parking area by holding my hand.
Doctors could diagnose the problem very fast and had to undergo a treatment for with the best medication. Praise God! She was restored to normal blood pressure in the next 24 hours and was discharged from the ICU. Within the next 2 months, she got back to normal health condition. Amen! God is our healer and by His wounds we are healed!
Yes. Our God is our ever-present help at the time of troubles and He cares for us as our father and mother.
