Old Meeting House Congregational Church (1643)

The Best Hidden Church in Norwich!

FOR US THEY FIGHT, THEY WATCH AND DULY WARD, AND THEIR BRIGHT SQUADRONS ROUND ABOUT US PLANT; AND ALL FOR LOVE AND NOTHING FOR REWARD: O, WHY SHOULD HEAVENLY GOD TO ME HAVE SUCH REGUARD?

 

Prayer is the answer to every problem in life. It puts us in tune with divine wisdom, which knows how to adjust everything perfectly. So often we do not pray in certain situations, because from our standpoint the outlook is hopeless. But nothing is impossible with God.

 

Nothing is so entangled that it cannot be remedied; no human relationship is too strained for God to bring about human reconciliation and understanding; no habit so deep-rooted that it cannot be overcome; no one is so weak that he cannot be strong. No one is so ill that he cannot be healed. No mind is so dull that it cannot be made brilliant.

 

Whatever we need if we trust God, He will supply it. If anything is causing worry or anxiety, let us stop rehearsing the difficulty and trust God for healing, love and power.

 

Into the experience of all there comes times of keen disappointment and utter discouragement – days when sorrow is the portion, and it is hard to believe that God is still the kind benefactor of His earthborn children; days when troubles harass the soul, till death seems preferable to life. It is then that many lose their hold on God and are brought into slavery of doubt, the bondage of unbelief. Could we at such times discern with spiritual insight the meaning of God’s providences we should see angels seeking to save us from ourselves, striving to plant our feet upon a foundation more form than the everlasting hills, and new faith would spring into being.
