PUSH (Pray Until Something Happens)


Background:Once the northern and southern kings came to know of the way the Israelites had defeated the 5 kings. They all joined forces and planned to destroy the Israelites
(Joshua 11:4-5 4All these kings responded by mobilizing their warriors and uniting to fight against Israel. Their combined armies, along with a vast array of horses and chariots, covered the landscape like the sand on the seashore. 5They established their camp around the water near Merom to fight against Israel),
but the Lord was with the Israelites and they won over them.

Just after a battle the Israelites won against the 5 kings who wanted to destroy the Gibeonites, more kings heard about it and went against the Israelites to destroy them. What a life!!!

I remember this little illustration from a pilot turned preacher. Getting onto the Word of God is quite like flying a plane.Especially the jet ones.When starting, the engine roars, the wheels face friction when they start, then they take off, but they haven't reached their full speed yet. There is something called a threshold velocity beyond which the plane travels smoothly, as if still. However, until that velocity is reached the plane rattles and shudders as if it would fall apart if pressed a little further. But you know what, the most jitters and rattling happen when the plane is just about to cross the threshold velocity, after which it is smooth, it doesn't even feel the noise of the engines any more. Its quiet, its steady, there is no wind turbulence because it has gone way higher than where the winds blow. They've gone way beyond that level.

Its the same with a Christian walk, while you're about to 'take off' trusting God's Word, just when you're break through is about to happen. The more the resistance, the more we PUSH through. (PUSH-Pray Until Something Happens). Until we're so sure of our Lord's promise that nothing can shake us, for we know that we know that we know, that He Who called us is faithful.

Conclusion: I encourage you, if you're waiting to see a change, PUSH on, if you're waiting for God's miracle, PUSH on, stay on the Word of God, do whatever it takes, maybe it needs a change inside of you, than the outside. Lets make that change and move on. Oh how important it is to stick close to the Word of God and in prayer. Don't give up yet. Go on.Keep trusting .
Isaiah 40:31
" but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
