An umbrella against a tsunami

Sometimes what we face in prayer can be so overwhelming. You wonder 'how can I even put a dent in this thing'? It's like facing a tsunami with only an umbrella for protection. You can feel as powerless as it's possible to be and as insignificant as it's possible to feel.

But this year, God has given me a new perspective from Luke c12v3. 'whatever you have spoken in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have spoken in the ear in inner rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops'. (NKJV)

I am powerless! I am insignificant! But none of this matters.

This year, in the inner room of a house of prayer, by myself at times, in the dark of night, in Sunderland, that is currently one of the poorest cities in England, geographically and symbolically a long way from the city state of London, here is where I have spoken in the ear. When you speak in someone's ear it's usually in a whisper and only that person hears what is said. Is it possible to be more outwardly insignificant than this?

But what makes all the difference is that, when we pray, we whisper into the ear of God Himself. Suddenly, because of Him, what we are doing is most significant. We whisper in the ear of God and He hears! What is said in the dark is manifested in the light and made known. What is whispered and heard only by one, is amplified and proclaimed from the rooftops, so that many are impacted. God takes our prayers, no longer confined by the walls of the inner room, and unleashes them upon the tsunamis and fierce storms we are called to stand against. CR
