A vacant home in our neighborhood sat for sale for a VERY long time! I thought it would NEVER sell. When I walked by it, it made me sad because it was so beautiful but empty. BUT.....the home has finally sold and now it's beautiful, full of life and activity. It reminds me of some of our prayers; they sit unanswered and we become hopeless and lonely, giving up on God and our prayers.
I'm here to tell you; don’t be discouraged if you don't see your prayers answered immediately. This doesn’t mean they won’t be answered at all. Faith believes God is doing something no matter what you see. Faith believes God is working on your behalf and knows what's best for you. Faith believes the word of God and obeys it.
"Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18)
What better reason is there to NEVER STOP PRAYING; except the word of God says so!
Trust God according to what His word says and not according to how you feel. God is BIGGER than anything that comes your way. God is for you and not against you. Let your faith rise up. Don’t stop praying and don’t stop believing. Persistently pursue God in prayer and in relationship. He has awesome plans for you.
Your word is truth and life. Your word says you are forever faithful and you will not fail me. I believe in you and your word. Please increase my faith. Please forgive my disbelief and doubt. I need you to work miracles in my life and situations. I want to trust you are working no matter what I see. Help me to see with spiritual eyes and wait in expectation knowing with you all things are possible. You are bigger than anything I face. Take away my fears, anxieties, stresses, and take the burdens I carry off my shoulders. I am not big enough to handle these things on my own; but you are. I surrender all to you, and I trust you are working in my life right now. Amen.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (Hebrews 11:1 NIV
Passionately leading you closer to Jesus Christ. Helping you break through insecurity and doubt, encouraging you to live a life of freedom and healing. Motivating you to a deeper level of faith in Jesus Christ.
