SUNDAY SCRIPTURE 26 OCTOBER 2014 SENT BY GHUNA FOR GOSPEL FRIENDS P. BOX 2202 MANDAVELI CHENNAI -28 INDIA
“…to him who has no might He increases strength.” Isa 40:29
We have been contemplating in the past weeks on WAITING in times of Darkness and Doubts. Today I want you to meditate on the importance of waiting in times of DEFICIENCY.
THE NEED OF COURAGE
First of all our hearts need courage and it is obtained through waiting upon Him. In order to prevent heart aches and heart attacks we need courage. Bible says, “ Wait for the LORD; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!” PSA 27:14
THE NEED OF ASSURANCE
Secondly we are intimidated by all kinds of fear. In order to alleviate our fear we need the Strength, Song and Salvation of God. Bible says, "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the LORD GOD is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation." Isa 12:2
THE NEED OF STABILITY
We are all shaky at times. We become wearied and fainted at times. The solution is to wait upon Him. Bible says, “ But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isa 40 :31
PRAYER Father, help me to wait upon you and receive Courage, Assurance and Steadiness. Amen.

My name is Seethurani, I come from Sankarankovil village. I am 12 years old. I am from a very poor family. When I was in my 4th standard, my father fought with my mother and he hanged himself and died. My mother, being a single parent could not afford my needs. Through a pastor, we came to know about this Living Hope. I have been here for last two years. I am studying 8th grade.
I love the Thanks Giving Prayer Fellowship which we have at 6 am on every first day of the new month. I like “Silent Prayer” which is conducted every evening. There is strict discipline in Living Hope. I love Living Hope for molding me to be a better person.%%detect_both%%
