The Silent Night

As I write this article, I think about those who wake up in the middle of the night. There are no sounds of traffic, of taxis hooting as they make their way through to the next stop, no pedestrians and no noise...

Only the wandering minds of those who have lost their sleep, searching their minds for answers to problems which keep them awake.  Some worry over how to face the next day, how they will cope with so much pressure!?

It is hard to imagine how many mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brother, sisters, orphans are going to read this article at a time like this—in the silence of the night. Usually, people overwhelmed by pressure wake up at night, after just a few hours of sleep, if any at all!  They will go to the kitchen and make a cup of tea or just lie in bed, tossing and turning, looking for an answer, a way out of so much sadness, pain and fear.

"I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalms 121:1-2 (NKJV)

God is the help of those who are awakened every now and again with no strength left in them to keep going.   For those who have this very question: "… From whence comes my help?"  Although it may seem impossible, God is really there with you, ready to act, ready to change your life, but He needs your permission for that.

This means that you need to give God’s words credit—we call it faith! No matter how impossible your situation is or how difficult your problems are, if you lift up your eyes to Jesus, He will certainly guide you to the next step to change your life!

Therefore, if you need help but don’t know what to do or how to take your first step towards changing your life, here is the number to call, now: (+27) 0861-330 320.  If you prefer, send us an email requesting a prayer visit or, even more effective, you can visit one of our UCKG churches throughout South Africa, where you will certainly learn how to put your faith in action.

Remember that is never too late to change your life, and you can start now!

God bless you all
