“Pray constantly... to escape whatever is in prospect and to stand secure before the Son of Man.”
what corn teaches us
Jesus said, "Be on the alert, praying at all times for strength. Luke 21: 36
Right after farmers plant corn, they pray for rain--lots of rain. Once the corn gets a good start, farmers do some thing strange. They pray for a "dry" period to force the corn's roots to travel down in search of water. Unless its roots reach the water level, the corn will wither and die when the summer dry season sets in--it will have no water supply to grow and stay healthy. Our prayer life is a lot like that. After giving us a good start, God gives us a "dry" period to force our prayer roots down to the "faith" level, rather than stay at the "feeling" level. application to my life
What is the danger if we remain at the feeling level of prayer?
The only way to stay on our feet and stand-in this crazy world of ours is to get down on our knees. Anonymous
