So you’ve been praying diligently for a long time and it just all seems so futile. The saying that prayer changes things is up for grabs as far as your experience takes you. At times like these, remember ~ God is faithful, and take a look back to see how He’s worked in times when it didn’t seem like He worked at all. Ahhh yes, there was that time when you couldn’t figure out how things worked out that way or why ~ or yes ~ there was that small happening that was easily passed off as co-incidence but deep down you knew it was totally God’s hand in such an unpleasant situation. Time and time again He’s proven faithful, so make sure that you don’t roll the stone of unbelief over that prayer that still awaits an answer. God creates new! Change will happen! God’s got it and if you’ve been praying He’s working and that you can know for sure. Those discouraging times are all for a purpose! Those delays, those setbacks, those postponements, those failures ~ He’s got them all in the palm of His scarred, imprinted hands and He’s workin’ ’em out. Relax and pray on!
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
There’s so much deception in our world today and truth is difficult to come by! So hard to decipher at times. Sometimes maybe it’s not really our lack of faith and trust in God that tugs at our heartstrings and leaves us feeling guilty but rather our lack of trust lies in those people that surround us; controlling our countries, our world/s Those that don’t know Him or care to know Him. When we can’t trust what they might do next, we feel like we’re not trusting at all. Somehow we have to trust a Sovereign God even for those ~ to those He gives free choice and free will. Even through evil, He keeps those that are precious to us, under His protection. He orders the leaders of our countries to fall into place! Our prayers are our spiritual weapons of warfare in a world of deception and evil, when we can’t and don’t trust humanity to do the right thing or behave in the right way in this whacked out world! So, when we can’t see past our doubt, we can still trust our God to work out the details for those lost in arrogance and deception, and for a world caught up in deception ~ in violence! God has a plan for those! He has a purpose for them to fulfill. He’s consistently working it out under His constant and divine supervision. His will won’t be trumped by evil or thwarted by our feelings or fleeting moments of unbelief, so don’t succumb to the enemy’s lie that your moments of doubt make you “not good enough” to be a mighty warrior in this spiritual battle that’s so very real to the believer on a daily basis.
Hey heart, take heart and pray without ceasing even for those ~ Don’t give up ever, ever! Rejoice anyway! Even in the darkest moments of your soul….Rejoice! Don’t ever believe you’re not good enough to make a powerful difference in this world and in the lives of those you care deeply about. Don’t believe the lie that you can’t move the mountain through the hand of God and through your urgent and diligent prayer. Prayer changes things ~ aren’t we thankful?
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
