Who do you pray to for help? Can you trust the God of creation who hears your prayers to be powerful enough to deal with any problem you may face?
Throughout the centuries men have prayed seeking relief from the issues which plagued them…but to no avail…why?
The problem, most humans through all of history have asked for “God’s” help, but have been asking the wrong “God” for miraculous intervention.
“For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator…” (Romans 1:25)
When you pray, where do you expect your answers to come from…science…technology…the culture…the government? If so, listen up… God’s word says:
“(Mankind) exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God, for an image in the form of a corruptible man…” (Romans 1:23)
“For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made…” (Romans 1:20)
There is a story that helps us understand the authority and power of our God. It is said that one of the first Christians among the Sioux nation was a young woman named Mercy Poorman. She had a musical gift and decided she would use it to translate hymns of her new found faith in her native tongue. It proved to be difficult because the Sioux language was much less expressive than English.
One of her earliest attempts was with the hymn, “How Great Thou Art.” Translating the key phrase in the song proved difficult…attempting to retain the rhythm and the clean meaning of the phrase.
consider all the things thy hands have made;
Thy power throughout the universe displayed.
YOU ARE THE BOSS…YOU ARE THE BOSS…”
