Today: When they had done so!
Passage: Luke 5 (NIV)
5 Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” 6 When they had done so, they caught such a large number of fish that their nets began to break. 7 So they signaled their partners in the other boat to come and help them, and they came and filled both boats so full that they began to sink. (Luke 5, NIV)-emphasis added
13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.(Mat 13, NIV)
If we are willing to listen to God and obey, God will just do it for us
Many a time, we don’t get things done because we want it our way, on our time
Many churches don’t enjoy blessing, for the same reason- no time (!) to ask Jesus, what should be done and how
Unbiased and sincere prayer is the starting of the turning point in life
When we have pre-destined “this is how it should be” and then call upon God for help to get it done our way, there is only so much God can do about it
Sometimes, I see advertisements from certain churches that they want a pastor/youth pastor, with such and such qualifications
My question is “did you really pray and ask God about it?”
God has a plan for each individual, family and church
In the letter to the seven churches (Revelation- ch. 2 & 3), we can see how much each church had deviated from God’s plan. Each of them thought they were doing great! By the way, have we ever asked God for an evaluation on ourself?
God is looking for somone who will ask and listen to God for God’s will about them
In the verses above, we see how God blessed them when they were willing to listen to God
When we see games and politics in the church and organization circles, it is almost sure that their prayer is: “Lord Jesus, please come quickly and take your folks away so that we can continue playing better games and politics here!”
When things come from individuals instead of from God, God’s name will be spoiled, as well as that individual’s. After sometime, neither God nor people will support. I have seen that; you have seen that
I need prayer; you need prayer. We are living because of God’s grace and prayer
When we go along God’s line, God will motivate people to pray for us
Have a blessed day!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for being there for me. You are the best guide and counsellor for me! Thank you for your guidance in my life. Let your plan for me and my family be fulfilled. Thank you Lord for your all your help.Amen
When we listen and obey God, others (& powers) will listen and obey us!
