The intention is not to steal Lakshmi’s thunder nor a post from her, but let’s praise our precious Jesus for emboldening her to diligently spreading the Gospel in India. Pray for our tired sister who just got home with her husband and two boys.
I am constantly being tempted to believe that prayer is a huge waste of time. Much of the body of Christ, unfortunately, have bought into that lie. It is so critical that it is the reason the enemy never gives up trying to have us give up.
When the enemy throws it on me, one of his techniques is for him to tell me that you only have to look around and see the results of my many prayers. What has changed? What’s different? Wouldn’t have everything been this way if I had taken the time that I spent praying and substituted it with doing something that will give me immediate satisfaction? Sometimes this so called prayer warrior says, “Yeah, you have a good point there.”
Christians aren’t to live in la la land, i.e. we believe in only what we can’t see. You tell me you see the sun is out but the Lord told me it is raining so I take that by faith. No! A thousand times no! But the Holy Spirit does often tell us to put our trust in that which does not perish or temporal things but to believe in what is going on in the heavenlies. Not because we invent it, but because He tells us it’s true. That’s why His Word is imperative because we need that to guide our thinking.
You can read the last verses of II Corinthians 4 or even the verse we had this past week about things that all perish when they are used and we see how temporary this home is. We need to pray and ask Him what He wants and believe Him for it. He wants many to come to Him and those lives will be eternal.
-We’re still directionless about our lodge and future direction.
-Please pray that Jesus would be real to Jonathan and Kara. Jonathan is home this week but seems so apathetic to what is our Everything!
-My unknown cause for my fatigue sure does cloud my thinking.
-Here’s a biggie - for revival…
