The Route Towards
Recently, I have attended three days seminar in Kulim. Although the seminar was held in the midst of exam heat, but the calling by Him has brought me to the seminar. Without knowing the purpose of my presence there, and feeling fear also for not being able to study in these three days, I have no choice but to wait and observe what His plan is. After three days, I really rejoice because finally He has revealed to me the purpose of life, which brought revival to my mindset and personalities. There were so many things that combined together, as seems like jig-saw puzzles that combined together to form a beautiful picture. Many touching testimonies have strengthened my faith towards Him more. However, the most important thing of all, revival has been taken place and the revival will not only for me but for His other children as well.
Intercession has been the key topic in the whole seminar. Intercession could means representing one party to another in certain situations. For the children of His, intercession could be more like the middleman between Him and His children. The medium that connects these three is ultimately the prayer. Why we need intercession? The purpose could be very straight forward, which is to 'meet' Him on behalf of people as these group of people which involve in intercession has the gift of intercession. It is a special ability that He gives to certain members of the body of his to pray for extended periods of time on a regular basis and see frequent and specific answers to their prayers to a degree much greater than that which is expected of the average Christians. The key questions:
"Is praying so important in the life of Christian? Why we still need to pray since He is going to do something regardless of whether or not we pray? Does a sovereign, all powerful God need our involvement since He doesn't need us to ask and we dont need to waste time praying. If its all "que sera, sera" what ever will be will be, then we can all take a rest and let it all just happen. We don't need to be so concerned about matters as His will on earth will be done anyway, whether we pray or not. Why then should we pray? Do our prayers really make a difference in the lives of others?
The answer is resounding yes! Our prayer do make a difference as God wants to have PARTNERSHIP with us. In other words, He made the choice to be our partner instead of leaving us behind. Sadly, It is us who always choose to give up on Him. God is always the same yesterday, today and tomorrow, human who is the one that fluctuates and inconsistent. Frequently, we human, no matter Christian or Non-Christian seldom pray or take prayer for granted. Due to pride and ego, we take things into our own hands and seldom seek for His help. Ask ourself, how many times we pray for ourself and also for others when others encounter difficulties and misfortune? When we come humbly into His presence and pray for His guidance and blessing, He will definitely show us and give us wisdom as He is our loyal partner yesterday, today and tomorrow. So, why we still doubt Him?
In the previous post, I have mentioned about being no more lonely because He is always there. During the seminar, the speaker has mentioned about this phrase that touches my heart.
"LONELINESS IS INNER EMPTINESS, SOLITUDE IS INNER FULFILLMENT"
How true is the above phrase! A person who never put god as the center of his life will view his or her state of being with nobody as alone. In other words, when nobody is around him when he needed one the most, he view himself is in the state of loneliness. However, a person life who is filled with God grace will be in the state of solitude, although everyone might leave him at the end of the day, but because of his strong faith in Him, internally his desire for companion is fulfilled with God presence, that makes him feel no lonely but solitude. Praise Him and thank Him for His loyal companionship. No other partner greater or loyal than Him.
Fill our heart with His presence and communicate with Him more than ever. His grace and mercy shall we appreciate forever! God Bless!
