"Watch out for the contrary winds in your life...." the President advocates today at the Church. "Watch out for the contrary winds in your life...."
And whose life is unaffected by contrary winds today? Is there anybody? There are all sorts of changes and influences.
But if you watch out, you could with the guidance of prayer keep your life on an even keel, and steer it clearly through rough waters.
Bring the good influence of the Scriptures into your life, of Gospel music, of all the good qualities that God possesses, Agape (God's pure love), Loving kindness, Long suffering, Humility, the power to heal...Awesome, awesome, awesome qualities that Jesus had, and if we kneel down and pray, quietly to the Lord, to bless us with the courage that we lack, to have faith, to have abiding trust in the One who's word is true, who's promises are unbroken, who's very name with the Spirit of the Holy Ghost can make us weep and take away our illness.....
The One who could command the winds be still, who knows our every need, whose name is sanctified above all, the One who Heavenly Father sent to atone for us all, whose love washes away our sins, who's loving kindness guides us into the good direction, who is the Christ, our Lord. In His name, Heavenly Father, I ask that Thou guides us away from the contrary winds in our lives.
