“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no heart has imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him” ( I Cor 2:9)

Patrick was driving home when he got an alarming call. A friend had just seen his house in the papers with a notice for auction. “Are you aware you are about to loose your house!” He was not aware. Of course, Patrick knew he had mortgaged his house and was behind on payments. But as far as the Agreement he had with the Bank the 90 day default due process period had not expired. Immediately he called up the Bank. Yes, they were ready and up to sell his house within 30 days, “unless you pay up all sums owed!”

Now it was a stalement. However much Patrick pleaded that this is not what the Agreement had down the Bank was adamant. Patrick started looking for the money but all his sources were dry. That’s when he remembered his most important weapon- prayer! He called up his church Pastor.

“I am about to loose my house,” he said with desperateness, “and no matter what I say the Bank is determined to go ahead with the sell!”

“Don’t you worry,” said the Pastor calmly. “Have you forgotten “nothing is impossible with God!” Just come over and we light the torch of prayer!”

By the time Patrick got to church the Pastor had gathered all his staff in the prayer altar room. Immediately all went on attack. They repented. They pleaded. They cried out to the God of mercy. They recited His word. “Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory” ( Psalm 50:15). They sung praises. “I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds” ( Psalm 9:1).They asked God to intervene in an impossible situation just he had done through the ages for those who worship him in “spirit and truth!”

Still, the Bank remained unmoved. But gradually, as Fred together with his Pastor and church, cried out to God, a miracle unfolded. On the final day of intended sell the Bank removed the house from the Auction list, giving Patrick the breathing space he needed. Miraculously he got all the money he needed and his house was saved!

There are countless people who can testify of the same experience as Patrick.Through the concerted prayer of believers, an army of angels is released from the heavens, to fight battles beyond human power. Where you find yourself in a fix such as this, just know there is a key in your hand, waiting for you to turn and release the mighty power of a God whom no storm can stand!

Prayer today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, there is no situation beyond your power to prevail, this is why I surrender to you all my needs, for you are good and able to deliver beyond what any can imagine, this I pray in Jesus’s name.

    "The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands” (Acts 17:24)

    When in his missionary journey the Apostle Paul ventured into the city of Athens he was struck by two things. First, the Athenians spent most of the day doing nothing but talking about the latest ideas (Acts 17:21). In spite of that they could not figure out who the great God is and his plan for their salvation.

    Secondly, Paul noticed Athens was filled with temples and statutes all over. In fact he came across one altar marked with an inscription to an “unknown god” (verse 23). The Athenians were a very religious people, searching God but with no idea of his plans for salvation through Jesus.
    The experience of Paul travelling through Athens could be the same with any of us visiting our modern cities. It is easy to find folks arguing about where truth can be found on social media almost all day. And then also one can find temples of all nature rising across the city. This is usually where they have assigned and restricted God as folks go about their lives.

    One thing Paul reminded the Athenians is that in spite of all their great arguments and temples the truth was actually not far from them. “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundary of their lands. God did this so that they should seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any of us” (Acts 17:27-28).

    Today, you may find yourself in a situation similar to that of the Athenians, where you are searching for the truth, yet it is so close to you. “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me” (Revelation 3:20).

    Prayer for today: Lord Father in heaven, today I pray in the blessed name of Jesus, to know and share the truth of your salvation like Paul did for you are not far from any who truly desires to know you, this I pray in Jesus’ name!
