We all Pray when we want something in our lives, in fact you are probably trusting God for something right now. I know I am, I am trusting for a couple of things, and the thing is you can’t just trust him, for it. You need to pray for it and ask him for it. My opinion is you only need to ask once, every other time you need to thank him for it.
A lot of people Pray for something and then go on with their lives and days, weeks maybe even months later they say their prayers were never answered, well let’s look a little deeper into that, does the bible refer to you and me doing the WILL of God, or does it refer to God doing our will?
Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose. (Philippians 2:12-13)
May the God of peace … equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. (Hebrews 13:20-21)
Submit yourselves, then, to God. (James 4:7)
There are many more scriptures that refer to the will of God, don’t you think that instead of saying “God, I asked you for a new job, but look it has been 3 months and I am still here why have you not heard me?… How about you say Thank you God for WHATEVER it is that you have Planned for me SO BE IT, whether it be a new Job or not. Thank you God that I have been put on this earth to SERVE YOU, and to do YOUR will. Thank you God for the New Job, when you ready I will be waiting.
Why have you been put in certain situations in your life? God has put you there for a specific reason; there is something he needs you to do. So don’t you think he will keep you there until that task is complete? What about looking at it this way… how about asking the following “God, why have you placed me here? What is it you need me to do here? Reveal your plan to me and I will be obedient and do whatever it is that you require of me.
Then there is this little thing called FAITH
Hebrews 11:1 says: Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
So ask for that new Job, or the new car or whatever it is that you are trusting God for. And Have FAITH, that you will get what you asked, ONLY when the time is right. Have faith not only in God but also in his timing.
So to close
- Pray Until Something Happens (1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray WITHOUT ceasing)
- You only need to ask him ONCE ( I am almost certain he is NOT DEAF)
- Have faith that he will DELIVER
- Most importantly keep thanking him as if you have already RECEIVED IT.
I HAVE to hold God’s hand in everything I do. Without Him by my side I am nothing. The past few weeks have been somewhat strange, the only thing keeping me sane is God and me writing about it. If someone had told me 2 months ago that writing would be a release for me I would have laughed in their faces, every time I feel down or just not myself I used to turn to music, I would lock myself in the room and just turn on the radio.
It’s different now, when I feel something or the lack of feeling I want to write about it. To be able to express what I am feeling in writing is somewhat therapeutic. It helps me analyse, things and look at what areas of my life need to be worked on.
For the past couple of weeks if not months I have been suffering with insomnia, so much so that I have become moody, and withdrawn. So the time I spend awake I try to focus on the Lord and not the hundreds of problems and issues that need my attention during the day. If I am honest with myself I am not doing everything I can to strengthen my relationship with the Lord.
All I know is that I feel this strong desire in my life, a desire to do more. I cannot do it without God, I need him to take my hand and guide me, I cannot do it alone. I so badly want to do more but I don’t know what, yes I have brought up the calling of God in one of my previous posts, and the thought of being able to do more for the Lord makes me so excited, but the thought of not knowing makes me cry. I know I need to be patient in God’s timing, so for now I just have to seek Him and trust that He will reveal to me soon enough what He wants me to do.
I know I need to spend more quiet time with the Lord, for me it’s not easy. I am always surrounded by people. At this point in my life I just want to be ALONE! I don’t want to be around any people not even friends and family. I want to be able to open my Bible and be able to just read it and take in His Word, with no interruptions.
I know for most people to have quite time alone is also not easy, so if there is anyone that reads this and you are in the same situation, HOW and WHERE do you spend time with the Lord. I almost feel like I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms, God has put a strong desire in my heart to fellowship with Him, and I am I just feel that it is not enough I want to DO MORE, want to serve HIM MORE.
GOD TAKE MY HAND, I CANNOT DO IT ALONE.
