If God is your father, please call home. Corrie ten Boom said, ‘The devil smiles when we make plans. He laughs when we got too busy. But he trembles when we pray” ”Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God about your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answer. If you do this you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand” (Phil 4:6-7). When you feel swept off your feet, it’s time to go back on your knees.
Time spent in communion with God is never lost,
says Gordon Lindsay. The highest purpose of faith or prayer is not to change your circumstances but to change you. Pray to do the will of God in every situation; nothing else is worth praying for.
James Hudson Taylor put it this way: ”Don’t have your concert and tune your instruments afterwards. Begin the day with God. ”Martin Luther once said, ”I have so much to do today that I shall spend the first three hours in prayer.” Prayer may not change all things for you, but it sure changes you for all things. He’s waiting to hear from you.
