The Power of Prayer is on full display as the brothers and sisters of Ukraine continue their battle against oppression. Though outnumbered, the Ukraine spirit, in large part driven by their faith in God, have allowed Ukraine to defend their beliefs and their homeland. There have been incidences of fire balls from the sky, striking enemy convoys and neutralizing their efforts shortly after mass prayer efforts by churches and other local gatherings. Numerous miracles have been on display by the sheer efforts of prayer, not only in Ukraine but from around the World.
There have been instances of bombs hitting the city streets and not detonating, large buildings including apartments and hospitals with very minimal damage or loss of precious lives.
There has been a revival for the word of God in Ukraine and around the world because of what is unfolding. A feeling of helplessness is being replaced by a feeling of hope, hope in having faith in God. Hope in living by faith and not by sight. Hope that God, will perform miracles. What many of the citizens of Ukraine and around the world are discovering is the simplicity of life when everything that you thought was important has been stripped away from you. The bible is now the food for the soul. There was an older Ukrainian citizen walking down the street holding a loaf of bread in one hand and a bible in the other. When asked, the older citizen replied that the Bible was more important to him than the loaf of bread, as the Bible represented hope for not only his future, but his country as well.
I heard a description of the Bible the other day and thought it prudent to share. This person described the Bible as an “owners manual of life”. I thought about that description and came to realize how true that statement is. When you run into trials and tribulations of life, the answer is always in the Bible. It is very much like an owners manual. If your car overheats, check these 5 things and fix accordingly. If your heart hurts and feels pain, the Bible will have the 5 things listed and how to fix an ailing heart.
After Moses had liberated the children of Israel, there came a challenge of war from the Amalek onto Israel. As Israel was fighting they were being defeated by the Amalek’s.
Exodus 17:9 And Moses said unto Joshua, Choose us out men, and go out, fit with Amalek: tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the rod of God in mine hand.
Exodus 17:11 And it came to pass, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed, and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
Exodus 17:12 But Moses hands were heavy; and they took a stone, and put it under him, and he sat thereon; and Aaron and Hur, stayed up his hands, the one on the one side, and the other on the other side, and his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
Exodus 17:13 And Joshua discomfited Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.
The time has come to stand and pray in unity, a prayer for peace, love, faith and a deeper understanding of the word of God. Turn to the God, Jesus Christ, open the Bible read and meditate. Pray often and in groups. After you open the Bible, open your heart and let the Holy Spirit into your life and be your guiding light.
God Bless Everyone.
