I had heard a story of a Pastor who preached the same sermon for couple of weeks and when questioned about the motive behind this repetition, he said that preaching's are not just to be admired and applauded, they are to be followed, its just like calling a person who is going away, you will not just stop with one call, rather you will call until you grab their attention.
Today I am in the same position and thus am required to send the verse I had sent a couple of days back, even though I tried to argue with the Lord whether its ok, I am still persuaded to carry on.
" And he commanded them, saying: “Behold, you shall lie in ambush against the city, behind the city. Do not go very far from the city, but all of you be ready. "
Joshua 8:4 (NKJV)
The secret life is the prayer life, we need to pray, for without it we are the most deplorable.
In the struggles of our life what will keep us going is the strength which we receive from the Lord our God in prayer, thus its very important to speak to God, to tell Him everything and let Him guide us in everything and then we shall be victorious in every circumstances of our life.
