Pray in Your Storm No Matter What

I was inspired once again of the story of Hezekiah. The King of ancient times in the Bible whose life was told was going to end by the great prophet Isaiah. The King was told to get things in order and accept the defeat of death. As the news sunk in Hezekiah refused to go down without a fight. He wept bitterly and reminded God that he walked in truth, had a loyal heart and did what was good in his sight for him.  Before the prophet had left the courts, God told him to return and tell the King God saw his tars and heard his prayer (that was fast) and would add 15 fruitful years to his life. Then it adds that Isaiah took a clump of figs an laid it on his terminal body and he recovered. This last part amazes me. Hezekiah asked for a sign that this was true. God made the sun go backwards 10 degrees to prove the impossible.

No matter your storm in life, God is more than able to turn your situation around, in even in the midst of a terminal illness. He has the power to heal and can do so however he decides. He can do so by miracle means, natural means and human means. Continue in prayer even when weak, even when there seems no hope.  He can help in the largest obstacles in life right down to the little ones. Sometimes He withholds because of His greater plan, that we have to trust is way better than ours.

Storms many come and go in our lives, but God doesn't. He is there no matter how silly or how terminal of a request.  No matter if you can't get through the day, your homework, your weight loss or your relations issue. He is there, call on Him.
