TOPIC: WHAT ARE YOU HIDING IN?
The number of people taken to hospitals because of alcohol is growing worldwide. In Britain alone, a staggering 863, 257 cases of drink-related admissions were recorded between 2007 and 2008. The rise among young women was particularly worrying as the number of 10 to 16-year-old girls admitted in hospitals grew by more than 30%.
It’s amazing that close to a million people now suffer annually from alcoholism in just one country of the world – the UK. As life’s battles become more intense in these last days, men are taking refuge in alcohol. Be reminded that, truly, alcohol has a sedative effect (a feeling that makes you think the problem is over. Alcohol makes you feel free from all your troubles and worries; it also makes you feel more confident). But do you know that whatever/whosoever you first run to for solutions when facing trials is your god?
As thousands are running to alcohol for temporary and false shelter from the storms of life, do you know too that millions are also hiding in God? Oh, hear what David said in Psalm 61:3: “For Thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.” David was saying that God was his shelter when the storms of life showed up! Prov. 18: 10 says: “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.” The Amplified says: “The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the (consistently) righteous man (upright and in right standing with God) runs into it and is safe, high (above evil) and strong.” Did you get that?
Instead of hiding in drugs, women, sex, friends, money, etc, from the storms of life, determine to still hide in the name of the Lord (prayer) and you will be high above evil! Never quit! Hold on and hold out! Let’s begin early! Support the 2024 January WORLD ANOINTING SERVICE – Friday January 26th. 7.30pm – 4am. See page 65 for account details!
