Ever heard of a sun-stand-still prayer? Refer to Joshua 10. Joshua knew how to really pray to The Lord. “THE SUN STOPPED IN THE MIDST OF HEAVEN AND DID NOT HURRY TO SET FOR ABOUT A WHOLE DAY. THERE HAS BEEN NO DAY LIKE IT BEFORE OR SINCE, WHEN THE LORD HEEDED THE VOICE OF A MAN, FOR THE LORD FOUGHT FOR ISRAEL” (13-14).
“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all. Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don’t want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of ‘good time’ is seldom in sync with ours.” (Oswald Chambers)
I don’t want to be remembered as a generation who just watches the world pass by. I want to be remembered as a generation that moved when the rest of the world was choosing to hide in fear. Let us BE THE CHANGE. Let us MOVE. it’s time to fulfill our calling & become what God created us to do.
#tragedy has struck… again. Full of #sorrow, pain, questions, and anger. Minds racing a mile a minute, we just don’t know what to do. We feel trapped and confused. But let us not forget Who has always rescued us. Who has always delighted us. Given us shelter. We do not now have to carry this alone. #God will be out #stronghold. He hears our cries and He cries with us. “The world is not as it should be. Not everything that happens is God’s will. There is also His enemy.” Remember that. & take comfort in His words & #promises. Band together, as children of The Lord and rebuild what has been torn down; remember what has been lost; fight for a better day. #prayforokc
