For past two weeks we have experienced all kinds of interesting events, especially on a personal level with Giacomo falling fracturing a few ribs, recovering from a collapsed lung and all the while making sure things move forward within the areas of our responsibilities.
Prayer changes things. The family of God around the world came together to pray, to lift us up and we have experienced His grace, His encouragement, His strength, His Spirit at work in us. It was obvious God was there.
There are times when we do not always ‘feel’ that He is at work, but because we know who He is, we understand some of His ways (not all cause He is so majestic and there is much to learn), because of that we know He IS working all things for good for those who love him.
Recently I am reminded of the fact that our faith in God is not based on how we feel about God, it is about knowing and believing that He is who He says He is. To not waver in our faith in taht truth!
I was reading today the first chapter of Corinthians in which Paul reminds us to not boast in our wisdom or knowledge (neither boasting about how we feel I would add)…but if we do boast, let’s boast about this: that we know and understand Jesus, the power of God for wisdom!!
You see prayer changes things because of who we pray to, in whose name we pray and knowing and understanding the One we pray to.
It changes us, when we establish again our dependency on Him, our surrender to His Lordship and then we ask Him to lead our words to be in agreement with who He is.
So thank you to those who stand in prayer with us. Our school on their second day of class, sat together and prayed (see photo)…
There is power in prayer and prayer in the name of Jesus!!
