Prayer

Last evening, when I got home, I checked on my computer. I had let it run while I was at work to do a complete computer recovery.  What this is Basically you are reinstalling the Operating system on the computer, like when you first buy a computer, some might call this a Factory Reset.

i was hoping for the best, Before I left I was having some issues, However, after restarting the computer, it seems the computer wasn’t working correctly, at all. So,  after speaking with a tech from DELL over the phone, it was decided that I should contact another department which wasn’t open until Monday. i unplugged the Ethernet plug from the computer, and had tried to get the computer to start.  I could only  get it to run  in  Safe Mode,
Safe Mode  is used when   you have a virus on your computer, in normal mode the virus is active, however in Safe Mode, the virus becomes inactive so it can be removed. Safe mode is also used in other circumstances, that I will not go into at the moment.

This is done by restarting the computer, then holding down the F-8 key,  then choosing the Safe Mode with Networking.

This Allows you to get access to the internet should you need to update the anti-virus program on your computer.

I woke up the next day feeling so depressed thinking about the computer. if it had worked I intended to watch Skip Heitzig, on Hischannel.com but, since I couldn’t I would probably end up watching it on my small Apple computer, instead of the large screen.

I believe the Holy Spirit was trying to get me, to pray about the situation, but, my thinking at the time was what could God do. I believe  we all get this way, when the Flesh part of us wants to take over. At the time I  felt like God was distant on solving this situation, I guess I was having a lack of faith because of the situation, I just wanted it to work.

That afternoon, I started praying explaining my situation, to God how the computer was not working and how I would have to wait until Monday to speak with someone at DELL, I confessed to the LORD, that I had to remember that this computer is only a machine. After finishing my prayer,  I went into the other room and decided to switch on the computer. I made sure to try the computer  in safe mode and see what could be done.

What I  hadn’t expected to see was the words that I could  “reinstall windows,  by restarting the computer, however not in Safe Mode, I quickly removed the plug from the speakers, the HDMI Cord and the USB for the Printer, and restarted the computer. After awhile the computer was running like normal as when I first opened the box. I guess I just had to have a little faith, like it says in the bible.

In the book of Luke chapter 17 starting at verse 6 it says The Lord answered, “If you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘May you be uprooted and thrown into the sea,’ and it would obey you!

Ephesians 4:11-16

11Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. 12Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do his work and build up the church, the body of Christ. 13This will continue until we all come to such unity in our faith and knowledge of God’s Son that we will be mature in the Lord, measuring up to the full and complete standard of Christ.

14Then we will no longer be immature like children. We won’t be tossed and blown about by every wind of new teaching. We will not be influenced when people try to trick us with lies so clever they sound like the truth.15Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way more and more like Christ, who is the head of his body, the church. 16He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.
