Prayer – The ultimate consultancy meeting

Reading through the gospels, I am amazed at how Jesus Christ always woke up early morning to pray without fail even though He was God.

He discovered that the power and answers sought by people during the day would only come if He consulted the Father. And when He was leaving He left us with the skills of praying.

Amazingly, people have formed the habit of choosing to pay thousands of their currencies to fellow human beings to be told things.

Don’t get it wrong, God speaks to us also through people but the issue that people need to deal with so critically is the element of trusting in fellow human beings. Remember what the ultimate coach and consultant says about trusting fellow humans in Isaiah 31:1-3 (NIV): Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD….But the Egyptians are mere mortals and not God; their horses are flesh and not spirit. When the LORD stretches out his hand, those who help will stumble, those who are helped will fall; all will perish together.

    wow! refreshing as always, it’s amazing to see the numerous examples in the Bible that we can emulate for full living. when we pray and have devotions in the morning, we’re simply putting things in the context of Scriptures unlike at the end of the day when our prayers are more of a response ro the challenges of day .keep posting madame.
