My life jacket!

Isaiah 26:4”Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rock.”

What is a life jacket? It is a piece of equipment designed to assist a wearer to keep afloat in the water, so that they don’t drown, it is also called as life preserver. The Word of God is like a LIFE JACKET!

Did you know anxiety hampers faith but trust boosts faith? When I walked into an Officer’s room with my big file with all relevant documents for the running of our Abide School, I was filled with angst, fear, confusion and worry: “How would I handle this educational institution with no prior experience? Would I get it soon? How will I go about this? – a million questions hammered my mind. Well, as I went through the grind, day in and day out visiting the officials, various desks and a lot of running around – the Word of God was my LIFE JACKET! Calmness and peace has come over me! Hurray! I don’t have to fret and fume, I don’t have to get frustrated and discouraged – God would bring it through!

Amen. Ah! Such peace has come over me that now I can sit in front of the officer’s cabin singing and worshiping on the inside of me because I know and I know – he has to sign the file one day –no way out! Hallelujah! This is God’s project! God is the head of this project and He would see to it that things move! Friend, when you put God as the Head of your project and do things as per His Word, then even if it looks weird and surreal for you; even if it looks like an irrationally insane journey, go for it, victory would be yours - if you just trust Him ceaselessly. Steadfast faith! Don’t waiver! You may be on bench today, you may be in the operation theatre, may be jobless, hopeless, penniless and you feel worthless; nevertheless, God would turn around your situation – just hold on to Him.

It took three years for a single paper with updates about our school to be passed to the head office! The endless phone calls, frustration, discouragement, agony, pain, restlessness, tiredness and fatigue was ample during the process; yet, it is the Word of God that kept us tight in the track. Believe me, I would have gone bonker
