We must not try to work things out ourselves, but let God works through us.
Allow God to work things out.
So we say to ourselves:
"I can do nothing on my own.
God'll do all things through me, both to will and to do.
The things which're impossible with men are possible with God."
Therefore wait upon God; trust God in all things.
Lean not on thy own understanding.
All around you, you see sin and sorrow,
but remember, Christ is on the throne.
Like Abraham, be strong in faith, because you know
that God who had promised is able to perform.
Sometimes a situation seems so hopeless, and a cry so futile, so helpless;
yet this is what God looks for to demonstrate His loving care and power
and His powerful hand of protection.
God hears the cry of the heart...a cry that can bring freedom or healing,
a cry that brings help in a moment of grave danger,
a cry that brings a clear direction in a season of deep perplexity.
There is a need to cry out.
A father hears the cries of his children.
Through an honest cry of the heart,
the father whose son was demon-possessed,
received a demonstration of God's power.
In our moment of fear, anxiety or trouble,
to experience God's deliverance and protection
is simply to believe and cry out,
like the woman with the issue of blood.
What a little faith can do.
When the Samaritan woman heard Jesus talking about the living water,
she must be thinking, "Is this man ok?"
And Jesus had taken the trouble to go through Samaria just to talk to her.
Then Jesus gave her a word, saying,
The woman with the haemorrhage believed the word about Jesus.
Her faith and desperation and the cry of her heart
drove her through the crowd of men, just to touch Jesus.
What made her so sure that she will be healed?
Faith. What a little faith can do.
As Smith Wigglesworth said, "Only believe."
God wants so much to restore us physically, emotionally and spiritually.
But because the soil is too shallow,
or the birds came to steal them,
the seed does not grow, but was choked
and prevented to grow in faith.
We need to pray in the Holy Spirit, to come into His presence.
As we walk with Him, we'll realise how close He is with us.
He'll protect us from the schemes of the evil one.
We need to cling unto Him.
But the Lord also wants us to be strong,
for one day we shall reign with Him if we faint not.
So the Lord is also saying....
