|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: happiness is knowing that ...
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth
me beside the still waters.
I don't know whether I have disclosed this before. I
once went on a prayer retreat and as usual took time
to contemplate on my life. There were times when I
felt that I've completely lost control of my life. And
of course, I wonder what happened. Was I being
punished, was I being foolish, was I this or was I
that? God spoke to me and it was clear and crisp. He
told me that He was in control of my life and He was
leading me all the way. It was such an overwhelming
revelation to me.
God IS in control. He MAKES me to lie down in green
pastures and He LEADS me beside the still waters. This
became a revelation again to me yesterday as I sat
beside my bed and took up the bible. God takes an
active role in my life. He just doesn't sit and relax
and watch as events unfold. He doesn't laugh or sneer
but He cares and participates. Even in my trials and
troubles, He is there in control. He watches over me.
Even when I don't understand, I know that He continues
to lead me and God has said in His Word that He will
not lead me into a negative place, but always to a
better place: green pastures and still waters.
Happiness to me is knowing that He is in control.
