Re:      Problems

It has come to my attention that some of you are spending time trying to manage your own problems.

Effective immediately, everyone should forward all problems to me via prayer-mail. I will dispense help ASAP.
FYI, I am on duty 24-7, as always. For those of you who feel overloaded with problems, I refer you to Matthew 11:28-30 in the Handbook.

What an innovative reminder that God is in charge of everything and that trying to manage our problems ourselves is truly a waste of time! God is just waiting for us to ask via prayer-mail for the powers of heaven to take control of our worries. All we have to do is accept the help that God is so eager to give.

God Never Tires

God never gets tired of hearing our requests—is never distracted or impatient with our failings—can always handle our emotions. Every moment God is lovingly watching over us, ready and able to relieve our burdens.

“Cast all your anxiety on Him for He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

“My God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” (Philippians 4:6).

“Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4). 

The promises are so beautiful, so complete, so trustworthy. What more could God say to encourage us?
