If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.
A friend sent me this picture, which inspired this blogpost. “Have you prayed about it as much as you’ve talked about it?” This is quite the thought provoking statement.
How often share our concerns with everyone, except the Father? We talk about the future, but don’t realize it’s all in His hands. We vent about our problems, but don’t give God the control to change our situation.
If you have a relationship with Jesus Christ, you have communication with an omnipotent God who is willing and able to change all your situations, but we get stagnant in our walk and don’t pray about the important things.
Putting our confidence in man is easy. We get instant reaction. We can get the response that we WANT regarding our circumstance. It seems more difficult to put our trust in Christ, because we fear not getting the outcome we desire. The part we need to understand is that God knows the desires of our heart, and He also knows the plans for our future. Despite our beliefs, His plans are far better and more fulfilled than the ones we have for ourselves.
You know this, but do you believe it yet?
What if… instead of complaining, we called upon the name of the Lord?
What if… instead of being obsessed with our circumstances, we pointed our interests toward the one who can change it all?
What if… instead of denying His power, we gave Him all the control?
What if… we prayed about it more than we talked about it?
