Reflections From The Bible And Life

Prayer Button

1 Samuel 1:9-20; 1 Samuel 2:1-8; Mark 1:21-28

Panicking causes a big disturbance that produces a negative impact to us instead of positive impact. It only complicates situations.

Imagine being stuck in traffic on the road while you are running late for a meeting or a party or gathering. It would be easy for you to lose your temper because you can’t control the situation. So what happens when you do? You play the blame game, and blame the driver for taking the wrong route, as well as blame your wife for waking you up late, or nor waking you up at all. Will all these actions that result from your panic improve your situation? I don’t think so. Your wife will start reacting, and your driver will become nervous from your panicking and will be affected in such a way that he’s bound to make a mistake trying to listen to you. You just opened another can of worms.

In situations like these, it is wise to be humble enough to accept the fact that the situation is beyond your control and only God can help us. It is wise to know that we are not always right and that we are not totally in control of our lives, that’s why we need the Lord to guide us all the time.

Instead of hitting the Panic button, we should hit the Prayer button. In times like these, we should pray to the Lord for help, just like Hannah. Hannah prayed for a child, and God granted Samuel to her.
