    Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where He prayed. Mark 1:34 NIVIt was early in the morning as I walked into my little prayer room. After praying for a few minutes I sat in the quiet solitude, mostly wondering how we we...

    Then he began to denounce the cities in which most of his mighty works had been done, because they didn't repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon which were done in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Bu...

Lean On Me

  • He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me. Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.' 2 Corinthians 12:9 WEB

    So many times in my life, I have had to face problems that I did not understand or know the answer to. It seemed that God would arrange situations where there was no one else to turn to for the answer but Him. Once again it was just me facing some complex problem with one to ask about it. This was before the Internet became available, and people called me for answers, that I sometimes did not have.

    Of course there would always be pressure to fix the problem, and sometimes when I had exhausted all of my abilities and ran out of ideas, panic would start rising inside me. Finally I would take a break, calm down, walk outside and pray for a few minutes. Then the answer would suddenly come and the problem was resolved. Jobs where I spent some time in prayer first, often came off without a hitch, but men hate asking for directions, and it was the times that I began growing cocky and felt like I could handle it that always got me into trouble. Paul said that when he was weak, he was actually strong.

    I can see now that God was saying: 'Lean on Me.' He intentionally put me in high pressure situations with no one to turn to but Him, and He always had the answer. We never walk alone as a Christian. We are to be dependent on the Lord every step of the way. The Holy Spirit can teach us 'all' things (John 14:26).

    God lives inside of us and He wants to be a part of our lives, but often we get too busy to inquire of Him though He is right there. Jesus said: 'But when they deliver you up, don't be anxious how or what you will say, for it will be given you in that hour what you will say. For it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you' (Matthew 10:19).

    This verse reveals a few things:

    1) The Spirit of our Father lives inside of us.

    2) 'It will be given you in that hour' is the answer that we need.

    3) We should not be anxious. It actually can cause us to be spiritually deaf. We must calm ourselves and get quiet to hear that still, small, voice.

    Lean on God for the answer, He has it. Include Him in your day. While you look everywhere else and exhaust all of your ideas, He is there patiently waiting for you to ask. The Holy Spirit that helped create the universe is available and can help you with this if you will only take the time to ask.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I lean on You! Teach me Lord what I don't know. Help me to see the bigger picture. Walk with me and talk with me today. I want more of Your presence in my life. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer" (Psalm 17:6) If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

I discovered that no problem is too insignificant for God. Yesterday, I started growing anxious because I was feareful of being late for my doctor's appointment. I took a few deep breaths and offered the situation to the Lord.In turn, He flooded me with His divine peace.I calmy walked into the office (I was almost an hour late!) but the staff wasn't angry or upset.And the doctor WAS able to see me! Everything that matters to us matters to God, but we need to put Him first when a problem arises.
