TOPIC: INSTALL YOUR ‘CABLES’ NOW
TEXT: Proverbs 27:12 “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself; The simple pass on and are punished.”
The secret to [continuing] when you feel like quitting is to erect ‘cables’ in your life before you need them so that when you face difficult situations, the help you need to make it will be there to protect you from your own fears and self-defeating attitudes.’
Solomon says, ‘A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.’ Sooner or later you’ll face a mountain you can’t conquer alone and if the ‘cables’ you need are in place, you’ll conquer it. What are they?
1) God’s Word. Jeremiah said, ‘Your words…sustain me….’ (Jer. 15:16). Get into God’s Word,and get God’s Word into you. That way, when trouble comes you’ll be able to handle it. It’ll guide you when you walk…guard you when you sleep…speak to YOU when you are awake’ (Prov. 6:22).
2) A strong prayer life. ‘…The prayer of a person living right with God is something powerful to be reckoned with… (James 5:16). Time spent with God changes you; it makes you more like Jesus and strengthens you for what lies ahead.
