Tomorrow’s night discussion we will discuss some tough topics. In the time of trouble, as you are going through your most difficult situation, who are we calling on and why? Then the toughest question of all which is asked by many and becomes an excuse, on why some have given up on or trusting in the Lord They ask questions such as; why does it seem that if I do call on the name of the Lord, it seems or appears he is not answering timely or at all? We will discuss this in depth tomorrow night using John 14:12 “Most assuredly , I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in My name, I will do it. We have to get in the habit of calling on the Lord as we go through, trusting the Lord will work it out no matter what the prayer is for, a loved one who is sick or according to the doctors given a death sentence; or whether you are to appear before the judge and may be looking at doing some years; or something as simple as providing for your family with food or finances as you receive turn off notices. We have to trust and believe if we pray and call on the Lord; however, He answers in his infinite wisdom His answers may not be according to our understanding but according to His will and again His infinite wisdom. I can testify to every one of these scenarios and have seen the Lord move and it may not have been as I would have done it or at times I thought the Lord could have moved more swiftly but all these difficult situations we will discuss. Finally, it will be my prayer that one person receives from the discussion to call on the name of Lord where normally that would not have been thier first choice or choice at all.
