Day 14- Clean Sweep

How  do  I  forget  so  easily. God, who  has remained  faithful  in the  past  is  still  the  same.He   cannot  change.
And  here  I  was fiddling  my  troubles  on   my one  string  violin.

The  day  which broke  bright  and  sunny  suddenly  became    overcast  with  clouds  of  anxiety. Raindrops came  falling  on my  head.

I  knew  all  the  Bible  verses,  remembered  all  the teaching  on  how  to  cast  all  your  care  on  the  Lord  because  He  careth  for  you.
But  still  I  tried to  take  shelter  under  my  leaky  umbrella.
After  agonising  over it for  a  while,  I  surrendered the  problem to  the  Lord, promising to   remain  strong  and  trusting , come  what  may.

I lay down to  take  forty winks  and when  I awoke  the  Spirit  prompted  me  to  seek  help from one  particular person.
I rang him up  and  the positive  assurance  I  received  from  him made  a clean sweep of  all  the  cobwebs of  my mind.
I was  ready to  celebrate instead of  gathering  up  the  broken pieces  of  my  day.
Jesus  said ,"Ask and  it  shall be  given   to  you,  seek  and  you  shall   find knock, and it  shall  be  opened  to you." Matthew  7;7

Jesus  did  not  tell  us  to  agonise, scream and  kick box when  problems come  our   way.But  ask,  seek  and   knock.

Remember it is the very time for faith to work when sight ceases. The greater the difficulties, the easier for faith; as long as there remain certain natural prospects, faith does not get on even as easily as where natural prospects fail. --George Mueller
