HE IS THE LORD, ALMIGHTY!

Five and a half years ago, I went to a conference on Prayer given by Ken Gire (look him up on Amazon if you are not familiar with him, he's worth your time to read his stuff). One of the things he said was that you have to have a relationship with God that is ongoing and strong because WHEN the storms come to blow you out of the water, if you don't have that refuge already built, you have nowhere to go. He compared our prayer relationship to a Masada or a high fortress. It has to be built during a time of peace so that you can see your enemy approaching from all sides. It needs to be fortified with the Word so that you can fight back and you need to be ready to flee to it in a moment's notice. That comes from a consistent time with the Lord built during those lulls between the storms. I know I have mixed my metaphors like crazy here, but this has meant so much to me in my journey with my health. It was less than a month after that conference that I found out I had cancer. It was a Divine Appointment that I was there in the first place in more ways than I care to count. Keep building your fortress, you never know when you'll need it.
