Sometimes when we have turned away from the Almighty or forgotten Him, then through His Love for us, He creates a situation whereby we find ourselves raising our hands, turning to Him in prayer for the fulfillment of our needs.
This is a very great blessing and a moment of pondering over our link with our Maker.
Why wait for situations to arise before raising our hands or getting closer to Him?
Let us be from amongst those who raise our hands daily and show gratitude for what we already have, by obeying His commands and abstaining from prohibitions.
Declaring His praise constantly, being conscious of Him and seeking forgiveness regularly would increase our levels of contentment and result in ultimate success.
