There is no reason for anything to be more than you in this world. If you are strong in your faith, you will see success smiling at you a lot of the times. I am amazed by the way I am able to withstand powerful storms in life. Of recent I have had some of the most trying moments in my life with a lot of people trying to pull me down. All the times, however, I come out in triumph. This is not my doing. It is the work of the Lord. I never fail to call on him to stand by me, to help me, and to protect me from people who want to pull me down. I do so with full confidence that he will answer my prayers; and he has never failed me. How mighty indeed, is his holy name!
God answers prayers, dear friend. I am witness to it. Those who are after me think I have a charm or spell that protects me. They are right. My charm is God. I put my whole trust in Him. I agree with Ephesians 6:10 -11 which says ‘build up your strength in union with the Lord by means of his mighty power. Put on all the armour that God gives you, so that you will be able to stand up against the Devil’s evil tricks.’ Yes, dear friend, ‘At all times carry faith as a shield; for with it you will be able to put out all the burning arrows shot by the Evil One’ (Eph. 6:16). To get your prayer answered, you must stand by the truth. What you want must not be for your self interest but for the interest of the Lord – to bring glory to his name. If you put your interest first, no matter how you pray, you might not be blessed with a positive answer from the Lord. This is why many of us are very prayerful but the Lord does not seem to be listening. Do not pray for your glory but that God may use you for his glory. Remove personal ambition from your agenda and you will see a new and wonderful relationship with the Lord.
