>> 2 Corinthians 1:3-10
5. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with His comfort through Christ. 6 Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us. (NLT)
Don’t know why this week God’s message delivered by Pastor Jeff touched me because I almost desperate in praying for my father’s health. As you know, he has been struggling with digestive problems for almost 20 years. Can you imagine that?! (Pokoke sampe *speechless* dah and don’t know what to say to God anymore). And Pastor Jeff said several times in the preach that prayer works! Prayer works! Prayer works!
Thanks God He is on time for reminding me when somehow I reached at the most desperate level. That He will comfort us even though we have to experience suffering. It gives me motivation not to give up and still surrender all my hopes to Him. Praise God for He is faithful, never too late and strengthen in our weaknesses. Amen ☺
Each time He said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me. (2 Corinthians 12:9, NLT)
Dapet tambahan lagi hari ini (10.09.2011):
Kadang-kadang ketika jawaban doa kita tidak segera datang, kita berasumsi bahwa Tuhan mengatakan tidak. Mungkin bisa jadi demikian. Tapi mungkin juga Dia ingin kita berdoa dengan gigih >> Ini adalah jenis doa yang menyenangkan Tuhan, doa dimana kita mnenaruh seluruh jiwa kita, hati kita, menjangkau pada Tuhan dalam hasrat yang penuh.
