“I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them; I will turn the darkness into light before them and make the rough places smooth. These are the things I will do; I will not forsake them” Isaiah 42:16, NIV.
One afternoon, my husband and I was visiting our pastor and his wife in their home. We sat down in their living room and I noticed a puzzle on the table. Immediately, I was intrigued. I picked up the puzzle and attempted to solve it. There were four wooden pieces, that were supposed to fit together perfectly in a wooden box. While trying to figure it out, my pastor came over and put all of the pieces in place for me. He then stood back and smiled as if he had saved the day, but I wasn’t happy about it. I was a bit upset, but I tried not to show it. I didn’t ask for his help, but he helped me anyway. I felt like a five year old girl, screaming on the inside, “I wanted to do it!” I wanted to feel the sense of accomplishment that comes from working hard to put something together that was out of order. He didn’t know how much I love the challenge of figuring things out. He didn’t know how I love puzzles. I got over it, of course, but God used that small situation to show me something valuable.
If we didn’t ever need to think, God wouldn’t have given us a brain. He wants us to think before we do things. He wants us to apply ourselves, and to use our brains to accomplish great things in life.
Just like in the example, maybe you’re enjoying using your God-given brain to work on some projects in your life. Maybe you have good sense and it’s working for you. Understand this, God is not like man. He’s not going to barge in and fix things for you. He waits until we realize we need His help. He waits until we say, “Hey, God I need your help!” When you have tried everything and you can’t figure out how to solve your financial problems, your marriage problems, your health problems, or your problems with addiction, that’s the perfect time for you to call on Jesus and let Him help you. He will flex His muscles in your life. He will pick you up and guide you to His exact wisdom. Yes, whatever smarts and common sense you have, use it! God gave it to you. But know that God is standing there to help you when you call on Him. He is a very present help in the time of trouble (see Psalms 46:1).
Talk to Him: Father God, I thank you for speaking to my heart. You’ve given me a brain, help me use it. Give me common sense, and give me wisdom and show me how to use it. But when I reach a point when I don’t know what to do and I can’t find my way out, help me always remember to call on you. Help me not to waste precious time. I need you. Help me, God. It’s only by your grace that I can do anything. Thank you Lord. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
(Read Proverbs 14:1)

In the fire the wood sizzles its song of victory. When our eyes open in the fire we see Our Master commanding the flames of love to consume our hearts for Jesus. Our strength rises as He empowers the song in the fire. O what incredible strength He gives us, as He never lets us down. Take Your glory Lord we are Your witnesses, YOUR overcomers through the blood in Jesus name.Amen.
Guide us oh heavenly Father in the path that you would have us to go. Amen
Thank you Heavenly Father for your blessings and your help. I love you God, I love you Jesus, I love you Holy Ghost.

Thank u for allowing the Holy Ghost to speak thru u to my situations to reassure me that God is on the front line n my life. All I kno how to do is look up to Him and trust that better things r n store. I kno what is true in my life now but most importantly I kno what is true in Christ.

I realized you’ve helped me even I can’t solve the problem in the past and still helping me at this moment.

I come to you all with a special prayer request!
I lost my husband in 2012 at 50 years young. He was a dialysis patient due to diabetes.
Well, he survived me and my son which was 12 years old at that time; he is now 17 years old. A senior in high school. He’s preparing for his prom a graduation. I looked at my son a couple of weeks ago. My son is caramel complexion. And noticed he has this dark/grayish color mass that’s covering from his neck, his face and his back. The same mass my husband had on him the 10 years he was sick. I noticed he’s been sleeping more than the average teen. I’m going to take him to have a physical next week. And I’m asking everyone to please keep us lifted in your prayers.
I’m fasting and praying right now, but I don’t feel my prayers alone are strong enough.
His name is Chris L. Jr.
I thank you all for your healing prayers.
I plead the Blood of Jesus and speak prayers of healing over my son.
In Jesus name, Amen
I thank you Lord God for your help in my time of need. Lord God I know that my son can be healed just by my faith in you!
Lord Jesus I know that you are the Way, the Truth and the Life!
You are Life! You are the air that I breath!
Without you Lord God we have nothing.
I Love you Lord God! And I thank you right now for the healing of my son Chris and for everyone who’s in need of your healing power.
In Jesus name Amen!
