Power of Prayer - June 25, 2001
Monday, June 25, 2001
Prayer is so amazing!! Have you been in any type of bind and prayed about it first? We so often tend to take it upon ourselves to straighten things out. We worry and stress about it!! What does worrying and stressing about problems do to solve them... absolutely nothing!! But when you let the Lord take it from you and deal with it, the burden is not only lifted off of your shoulders, but he takes care of it for you or leads you in the right direction with your best interest in mind. Wow!! What a God send, literally!! I can't even count the many prayers the Lord has answered and unwittingly his response unfolded before me when I least expected it. However, don't expect an answer immediately, the Lord has perfect timing in all things. He says many times in the bible, "Be still!! ....Wait! and be of good courage!!..." He always keeps his promises!
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-7
Have you allowed the Lord to solve your problems or have you become a slave to them? If you haven't already, I challenge you to repent of your sins and accept Jesus Christ, as your Lord and Savior.
"But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us," said the man.
"'If you can?'", said Jesus. "Everything is possible for him who believes!" Mark 9:22-24
