As we hear so much about emotional and physical abuse of women and children in our country – often by their fathers and intimate partners - and we see the flood of disrespect for them around us and often participate in prolonging the scandal of inequality between men and women, we have to now, during women’s week and month to also approach this painful and dangerous situation on a spiritual and Biblical level.

We are not to sit back and become spectators of God’s interventions and plans.As the Lord plants the “seed” of the “new thing” he is doing in our lives, we will be full partners of God in taking care of the seed he planted in our lives and in faith expects the seed to sprout.

Creation groans to be delivered,
and we, Christians, groan too as a result of living in this imperfect world with its disappointments, sadness, pains, sickness and death.
But then we also hear that the Holy Spirit groans for our sake, in compassion with us, before God.

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
Psalms 42:1-2.

Without the Ascension of Christ -
Easter is incomplete,
Pentecost is obstructed,
and the Second Coming is impossible.

Hunger and thirst is a first priority to Jesus Christ, the Head and King of his Church. It should also be our first priority as we encounter the world as the ambassadors of Christ on earth.

Hard lockdown is a good reason to pray, promote prayer in groups and especially during extended personal devotions, not to pray comprehensively is unthinkable.

In Exodus 16 God explained to Moses how the gathering of manna, the bread from heaven, was supposed to work, and he made it very simple. Each family was to collect enough for their own family. 
Something we are struggling with is how much is enough?
