Will You Depend on What God Can Do?
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
A. C. Dickson, a fine expositor of the Word of God, once said:
When we depend upon organization, we get what organization can do.
When we depend upon education, we get what education can do.
When we depend on money, we get what money can do.
When we depend on singing and preaching, we get what singing and preaching can do.
But when we depend upon prayer, we get what God can do.
Oh, what this world needs is what God can do! What our cities need is what God can do! What your home needs is what God can do! What our churches need is what God can do!
You don’t have a need in your life but what earnest persistent believing prayer could supply that need in your life. There’s not a sin in your life but what prayer, the right kind of prayer, prayer in the Savior’s name, effectual, fervent prayer, would have prevented that sin.
What help comes to us through the power of prevailing prayer! We can help our friends have their needs met as well through the power of intercessory prayer. James 5:16 says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that you may be healed.”
Are you depending on what God can do? Are you depending on prayer?
