Prayer- When you come to the end of the road!
It doesn't too long to be busy moving along, changing lanes, heading in the direction you need to go & then hit a dead end!
Dead end in your Marriage...finances... Health & ministry! It's when you feel like come to the end of the road & you don't know what to do...
You've pushed every button & pulled every lever...now what...it's you ally then you throw your GPS out the window frustration.
Paul himself knew what it was to come to a dead end!
Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us, you also helping together in prayer for us, that thanks may be given by many persons on our behalf for the gift granted to us through many. (II Corinthians 1:9-11 NKJV)
The word sentence is a word picture of a court passing verdict!
Paul felt he couldn't go any further...it was the end of the word!
Bug then he lifts himself out of that dead end & speaks of the God who rose from the dead! You may think it's the end of the road but we serve who breathes life into dead situations.
What to do when you come yuo the end of the road!
1) refuse to except the verdict of death...
2) look to God who raises the dead...
3) get others involved in prayer with you!
OMS, when u come to the end of ur rope tie a knot at the end of it & hang!
