Prayer Request


Psalm 119: 71... It is good for me that I have been afflicted, that I might learn Your statutes.

The revelation that I derived when I was reading the above verse is that sometimes the situations in our lives is necessary. When we are facing problems or being afflicted, we can learn a lot during this time. During this time, you will discover things about God that will blow your mind, you will discover things about people that will either makes your happy or sad and also you will discover things about yourself that you did not know. The situation in our lives would either allow us to trust God the more, brings us to knees or drive us away from Him but its up to you. Also during this time, we are being reminded who our true friends are, during this time we are also being reminded on how tough we are and not the situation. While reading the above verse, it occurred to me that situations in our lives are meant to strengthen us and not to break us. No wonder Paul wrote that we should count it as Joy when we are going through trials and tribulation because you will learn how to persevere.
Instead of crying and complaining to God for allowing certain things to happen to you, thank Him that He chose you to go through what you are going through. I used to complain a lot about situations in my life until I stumbled on the above verse and I quickly asked God for forgiveness. If God did not allow me to go through some certain things, i wouldn't have known what i know now.. for example the important of prayers, worship, fellowship, trust, faith and who my true friends are. So, instead of whining, praise and thank God because that's what move Him to act on your behalf. NEVER ALLOW YOUR SITUATION TO DRIVE YOU AWAY FROM GOD, use that period wisely to pray for insights and revelations. Get to know Him, His statues, His ways and His Purpose for your life. So my dear,some of you can agree with me that it is good for you that you have been afflicted because it has open your eyes to a lot that you wouldn't have known if you were not afflicted. I praise God for those who has never been afflicted but just incase you are face with situation, let the above verse encourage you to rejoice because its okay. Stop the complaining and whining and thank God for all that you are going through. The good news is that you are just "GOING THROUGH IT" so keep it moving, don't camp there, don't think about it and don't worry because God has your back and He will never leave or forsake you. Why? Because you are His sons and Daughters in whom He is well pleased. God bless!!
