ACCEPT WHAT COMES BUT NEGOTIATE!

What happened? No one can predict what will happen next,
even by guessing. It is only God's wisdom that is perfect and
infallible. God, who is omniscient and omnipresent, the
Almighty.


Sometimes, we are just surprised why somebody is afflicted with
cancer; for all we know that person is as strong as an ox. At times,
we were saddened by the passing away of our friend, the one that
we saw just yesterday. That's life. Accept what happens, what can
you do? I do not mean that you should be fatalistic. However, it
is important for us to realise that we cannot put God to the test.
Anything can happen from day to day, hour to hour, minute to
minute.


Well, we can negotiate! What? To negotiate with the King of kings?
Why not? Remember the story about a widow who pestered the
judge until he just gave in. Exactly. That is the story that gives
us a lesson. God is All-Powerful but He can give in to our prayers
as long as you really do it with persistence and zeal. Negotiate with
the Lord of lords; you'll never know.


How about the story of the woman who was a prostitute and was
almost stoned to death? And the other lady who carried an
alabaster jar full of precious perfume? God has forgiven at once!
Submit oneself totally to the Almighty, but try to please Him at
all times.


Negotiate your life with the Lord. Pray hard not in a fleeting way,
like every other week or twice a year. Pray unceasingly. Make an
offering of your life as a prayer. I do not mean that you have to be in
the church 24 hours but offer all things that you do for the glory of
God. Life is only once, it will never come back. Take time to negotiate
for your salvation. Do it quickly not tomorrow but now. Tomorrow
maybe too late.
