If we don’t ask, we will never know. If we aren’t willing to risk our reputation we’ll never establish God’s reputation.
The impossible prayers reveal our faith and allows God to reveal His glory through us. There will be times when you will have to do whatever it takes. Letting Go of your pride and ego, come to the altar in humility and dire dependence on God. You’ll need to do something crazy, something risky, and something different.
God doesn’t need us to pray, he wants us to seek Him daily. God doesn’t answer prayers just to give us what we want; He will answer prayers to bring Him honor. God will not answer every single prayer, but He calls us to bring our prayer request to Him. He has the final say.
Prayer places the responsibility in God’s sovereign hands. We’re afraid that God won’t answer our prayers or get frustrated that He isn’t answering our prayers. We never know if the answer will be Yes, No, or Not Yet. But the answer isn’t up to us. God knows what we need and when we need it. We only need to trust God. It is risky business to trust God for the outcome, but His ways are everlasting. This world is not certain nor is it stable. We have God who is and has always been a firm foundation. We could use stability in a time of uncertainty.
Mornings with your favorite cup and meditate on God’s Word.
