Praying And Believing

Matthew 6:6 (NIV)

But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

Today I want to share with you something that I am found to be true. When we ask God in prayer, for whatever it is that we’re asking and nothing happens, we believe that God didn’t hear our prayer. I’m here to tell you maybe it’s because when we prayed we didn’t believe. To pray is also to have a form of faith.  For when we pray we are giving God to him in his hands, at his feet what ever it is that we are praying for.  When we say we have faith the question should be asked do we really believe. So if praying is having faith and believing that God is receiving our prayer, then isn’t it true that we with out a doubt have given God our issue and he in now taking care of it?  I say yes he is when we pray believing.  Look at this passage. James 1:6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.  Praying is talking to God, in this great communication with the one who created the universe, today talk to him know he is listening to you.  Because he is.

What It Realy Is To Follow Jesus

Matthew 16:24-26 (MSG)

Then Jesus went to work on his disciples. “Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it. Follow me and I’ll show you how. Self-help is no help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, my way, to finding yourself, your true self. What kind of deal is it to get everything you want but lose yourself? What could you ever trade your soul for?

I now know what I have to do.  Have you ever had that “Light Bulb Moment”?  This morning I was meditating on Matthew 16:24-26 and along with the conference my wife and I attended this weekend and have been given the “GO” from the Lord.  I have realized I have been on the couch and have not really been committed to what God has called me to.  You see it is not about me it’s all about him.  If I want to follow Jesus I must let him lead.  What ever I face God is going to give me everything to accomplish where he is taking me.  I can not do it on my own, but He will supply my every need.  God is asking from us to self-sacrifice our own self.  We will see the potential not through our own but how God moves us and makes us.  We have to deny our self.  I want to serve God to the fullest of my capacity.  To do that I must let God lead me.  Today Let God Lead You.  Remember he has great plans for you today.

Pray:  God lead me in your truth today.  Let me allow you to lead me and help me to put myself aside.  simply because your way is the best way.  Give me strength to do this and the wisdom I need to follow you.  Amen.

Rplacing Worry With Faith

replaceworrywithfaithmatthew6_34

I don’t know about you but I worry a lot. I’m being very honest here today. In the grand scheme of things I have learned a very valuable lesson. Beginning today I will no longer worry about anything. By worrying about things I’m holding on to the things that only God can take care of . Read this, Philippians 4:6-7, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”.
God is the one that supposed to be handling all of these things in my life. instead of trusting God and having faith, I’m breaking my head trying to do it on my own. Read this, Romans 8:28, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose”.  When we come together with God and God is working in us, his Grace is enough for us. He takes care of us, this means that he is taking care of all the things in our life. Today remember this don’t worry let God take care of every situation in your life. Trust in the Lord with all of your heart have faith in him.  Today replace worry with faith.
