At the week-end during a live game a young footballer collapsed and fell to the ground with heart failure. The atmosphere in the arena went silently quiet as all eyes watched the paramedics try to resuscitate him. His fiance has asked the football fans to pray for Muamba as he is still critically ill.

It’s another reminder that our lives are not in our hands. Here is a young man in the prime of his life but finding himself having to fight for it. It is the Lord God who decides the day we go, He has numbered our days and until that day nothing can take us unless it is in His will. He is sovereign over all His creation not even a sparrow falls to the ground without Him knowing. So today is your house in order? Do you know where you are headed? Now is the time to make sure of it.
The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. (Ps103:8). He is waiting for you.
