Asking Questions

Today as I was reading my bible, I found that I began to have questions about what I was reading. Now these questions were not simple. They were very complex. I sat and contemplated and then realized that I would not be able to find the answer within myself, so I asked God. Now there are times in life when questions are simple and can be answered very quickly, but then there are times like this. I know that the complexity of this question will take some time to receive an answer. It's not because it takes God a long time to answer my questions. The opposite is true. He is able to answer my questions within a nano second. Yet, some questions require prayer and a silencing of my heart. I think of it this way. When we are talking to someone that we are very close to and care about, we must be attuned to where their heart is in a situation. We must listen attentively for the answer that they give. We can't force them to talk and once they do, we have to have a open heart to clearly receive their answer. God is no different. He wants to talk to us. He loves it when we ask Him questions, but unlike man, He knows the condition of our hearts. He knows why we are … [Read more...]

A Prayer From Psalm 17

Praying the word of God is one of the best things that we could do in our lives.¬† Sometimes our hearts search for the words that would make our deepest cry known to our God and Father.¬† The Lord has given us these words as guidance and as a resource for those moments when we want to use wisdom as well as cry out "Abba Father, I need You!" Be encouraged to pray the words of this psalm and in your heavenly language.¬† For in the Spirit we speak in an unknown tongue directly to the heart of God...what more could we ask for?¬† Remember, He hears us when we pray. A prayer of David. Hear me, LORD, my plea is just; listen to my cry. Hear my prayer‚ÄĒ it does not rise from deceitful lips. Let my vindication come from you; may your eyes see what is right. Though you probe my heart, though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have planned no evil; my mouth has not transgressed. Though people tried to bribe me, I have kept myself from the ways of the violent through what your lips have commanded. My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled. I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my … [Read more...]

Prayer

If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.¬†¬†¬†¬† ~2 Chronicles 7:14 We must always remember that our God longs to hear from us.¬† He is waiting to do many great and wonderful things for us, but He does wait on us to ask of Him that He may bless us in ways that are unimaginable.¬† I praise and thank God for His willingness to communicate to us over and over again how much He loves us.¬† It is that very love and faithfulness that grabs our attention and draws us near to the Father's heart.
