Accepting God’s Love-Feeling God’s Power


Today a loved ones’ risky surgery overshadows my thoughts and prayers. Tomorrow morning when uncertainty looms before me like a gray cloud, fear may grip my being so tightly that I might want to escape the confines of my body. I may feel an overwhelming sadness and a perceived loss of control. I might feel small and vulnerable and incapable of coping.

How can I change these possibilities? How can I reach beyond these all too common reactions? I know the answer. I know the truth but often I turn away and choose the path of darkness and despair. The path that Satan desires that I choose and the path that breaks God’s heart. To avoid these traps, I must pray. I must turn to Jesus, close my eyes, block out the world, and focus on His presence and His promises.

• He will never leave me.
• He will bring me rest.
• He will give me peace.
• He commands me to “fear not”.

My earthly body rebels at the notion to lay down fear and worry. Surely my worry is warranted. Surely my worry is helpful else why would I feel so compelled to do it? Today, Jesus repeats again to my tortured soul, “fear not”.

We are promised that a “righteous man’s” prayers are “powerful and effective.” But...in our heart of hearts we know that the end of the story might be different than we desire. In the end, we must remember that God will use EVERY event, EVERY situation, EVERY trial and bring about good in our lives. We need only have eyes that are open and hearts that are willing to look for God in every situation.

The mere “act” of praying is an act of obedience. We know that. But, we must believe that God will not only hear our prayer. He WILL act. In our hearts, in our minds, in our bodies and in our world. We will be different if we pray and let Him in.

My prayer for my loved one WILL be heard. More important, God WILL work. His plans are perfect and with each step of faith and each prayer I pray, I know this to be true. My sincere prayer is that we are all changed today, both those who are praying and those who are being prayed for. That we would all see Jesus, that we would each FEEL his power.

He is willing to meet us and bear each burden. Father, please help us to be open to your love.




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
