beautiful smile“Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him. “You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt?” (Matthew 14:28-31, New International Version)

The LORD saved Peter.

Thought for the day: If Peter did not cry out to God to save him as he sank in front of Him, would Jesus have left him to drown? (Just a question to ask yourself that Seniour Pastor Clement Ibe asked)

Prayer: Jesus, I want to know You for myself. Here I am to experience Your great love. Jesus I love You. Amen.

hospital hand“You are my hiding-place and my shield; in your word I put my hope.” (Psalms 119:114)

Where do you hide when the bills are due, hospital bills are mounting, health is frail, relationships are breaking and there’s no end in sight?

Where do you run to, to catch your breath and recover? When everything is falling apart, where and what is your escape?

Do you terrorize your family and become an angry lion and someone to be feared? Do you turn to drugs, alcohol and smoking to ease the pain and escape for a while? Are you engaging in sexual escapades in a desperate search for love and settle for junk and beatings? Are you the popular one at night clubs and porn shops or the one secretly there because you have given up on God?

What do you do when things are spinning around and around and won’t stop? Do you beat up your partner to reinforce a false sense of control? Are you the bully in the home? Are you writing a suicide note or considering consulting with spiritual mediums and traditional healers/witch doctors?

Run to God child of God. Put your hope in Him alone. He will not fail you. Be encouraged. Take heart. God can be your hiding place and shield if you allow Him to heal you and take charge. This is all a divine plan to bless you. Run to God. He sees. He hears. He loves. He saves. He Is. I AM.

Thought for the day: Where do I hide when things are falling apart?

Prayer: Your Name is I AM.

water"Then Jonah prayed to his God from the belly of the fish. He prayed: 'In trouble, deep trouble, I prayed to God. He answered me. From the belly of the grave I cried, "Help!" You heard my cry." (Jonah 2, The Message Bible translation).

I feel that like Jonah, I am at the bottom of the sea. I know why I am here... disobedience to You. I am completely swallowed up. There's nothing left in me.

Yet, there's nothing left in me. I need You, dear Jesus. I need You more than ever before. I need You to pick me up and get me out of this belly of the fish.

God, if You can help Jonah from the belly of the fish, You can save me too. Here I am Father God. Help me I pray.

Thought for the day: Help me LORD!

Prayer: Jesus.
