A quick response

Some years ago I decided that I needed to be quicker in my healing response to sudden situations. I felt I missed too many opportunities to make an immediate difference because I thought I didn’t have the time I needed to pray “properly.” As a consequence, impressions hung around until I felt they could be prayed about—that is, if I remembered.

I reasoned that it would be so much better to deal with such situations right in the moment of need. The Bible says, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine” (II Timothy 4:2). Other Bible translations interpret this as being prepared whether it is convenient or inconvenient.
