Faith In Action ‘Empathy’


There is nothing like a crisis, to get us to examine our Faith, what we truly believe. I am not ashamed to say, I have reached one of those points, that people would rather not have in their lives. Years ago when my wife and myself had just received some news in the natural, about my wife state of health.

Again I am not ashamed to say, it was mind numbing. My first reaction was What! How can that be! she wasn’t really sick. then I get back to the point, what do we do when a crisis hits.

We live in the natural, so what helps are available to us, first there are the doctors, the medical facilities and the treatments, and is that all that is available to us, No we walk in the Supernatural, we are children of God.

So what is also available to us, the list is endless, lets start with, the hardest in the natural to comprehend;

Philippians 4 verse 4: “Rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS, I will say it again Rejoice”.

Then the one we most likely run to:

Philippians 4 verse 5: “Let your requests be made known to God”

but before we do that this same verse tells us to

“Don’t worry about ANYTHING, but in EVERYTHING, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, Let your request be known to God”.

Prayer is talking with Our Lord and Our Friend. Petition is talking the time to really tell Him what is troubling you and why. We are not just talking so fast,{ Eg: “Hey God did You hear that”} that He doesn’t get a chance to respond. We should take to time to go through each one of our concerns with Him.

What will happen then, look at the next verse Philippians 4 verse 7:

“And the Peace of God. which surpasses every thought, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ Jesus”.

The King is on His Throne, lets worship Him as The King, nothing is to big of a disaster for Him. Bring our worship and our praise before Him.

Take time to gather your thoughts {petition} and present the crisis to Him. {He knows about it anyhow, He just wants to see if you ask for His help.}

It now becomes His problem, because He loves us too much, to leave us in such a worried state.

What He does with our prayers and petitions is no longer our worry. In there place He has given us more of His Peace. Peace that surpasses our worried thoughts about our crisis, and it also guard our heart and minds against the enemy attacks, that would try to get us to think more about the crisis,.

I did a lot of soul searching during those weeks, so I hope this revelation that helped me to get through, will also help somebody else.

If you are going through difficulties right now, be assured He is listening, and He gives His Peace and Protection to help us all through.

God Bless.
