I read a story on how a cold wind was howling and rain beating down heavily, when the telephone rang at the residence of a rural doctor. The doctor struggled to wake up and noticed it was just 12:30am. Since he was a kind and compassionate soul, he picked up the phone and enquired who was calling. “it’s my wife!” cried the farmer who called. She needs a doctor right away, can you please come at once? “Sure, I’d come,” said the doctor. “But can you come and get me? Because my car is being repaired. “What, how do you expect me to come out on a night like this?” said the farmer.
Many believers are like that farmer. They want to experience the good hand of God, but they like to get it without doing anything. Just like that doctor, God is available, even in the dead of the night. But are we ready to do what it takes to make Him intervene on our matter? Faith without work is dead. The farmer had faith in the doctor, but he was not willing to do the work that will commit the doctor. It’s not hard to pray, just like it wasn’t hard to call the doctor, but the most important parts are the actions that follow after the prayer. Thank God the farmer called, but imagine what will happen if he refuses to get the doctor. Prayer notifies God about the situation, but actions convey God to the center of the situation.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; I DON’T WAIT FOR SIGNS TO SHOW THAT MY PRAYER HAS BEEN ANSWERED; NO, I CREATE THE SIGNS BY TAKING NECESSARY ACTIONS. Have a most fruitful week, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
