prayer

‘You have been…a shelter from the storm…’ Isaiah 25:4 NIV
To be prepared for life’s storms you must:

(1) Know your storm manual. The hymnist Kelso Carter wrote: ‘Standing on the promises that cannot fail, when the howling storms of doubt and fear assail, by the living Word I shall prevail, standing on the promises of God.’ Emotion-based faith is like a broken crutch; it won’t support you in life’s storms. It’s fair-weather Christianity and it doesn’t work. God’s Word stands sure; it’s greater than surrounding conditions and will enable you to outlast any storm. ‘Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly…’ (Colossians 3:16 NIV) Keep a rich deposit of Scripture within you at all times so you can make a withdrawal when you need it. Withstanding life’s storms depends on your willingness to ‘…hear these words…and put them into practice…’ (Matthew 7:24 NIV) So, memorise the Scriptures; read them until, if you’re cut, you bleed Scripture. Meditate on God’s Word until it fills and shapes your consciousness. When the storm came, Job said, ‘…I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.’ (Job 23:12 NKJV) (2) Storm-proof yourself through prayer. Many of us treat prayer like a visit to the emergency room; until then we neglect it. Imagine where Daniel would have been if he’d held off praying until he was staring down the lion’s throat? Not a smart move. Instead, in his time of crisis Daniel drew on faith built by a lifestyle of daily prayer. And in your crisis, you too can make withdrawals from your account – as long as you’ve been faithful to make regular deposits.

Just wanted to share this here, one of my many passions *wink

I wrote this a while back, let me share this here now…

I’ll give you a testimony about my friend

He taught me a lot and brought a lot of my problems to an end

When he was here it was like he did no harm

Even in difficult times he remained calm

When I expected a sigh he gave a smile

..The first time I saw him angry

Was when he caught some folks messing around with his fathers property

…. They plotted to put him away

And I must confess they had thier way

They put him to death

But…. But it didnt end there..

They didnt get the whole story

They didnt know that by killing Him, they only activated his mercy

And released his glory

Now, I don’t have to walk with him physically

He lives in me, like pharoah lived in misery

With Him I have more power than Ceaser

…. Folks, the name of my Friend is JESUS !
