Today’s devotional is teaching us about believing Faith. How many of us claim our faith, but don’t practice it in our reality. We know the strength our Father has. We know He created this world we live in, and every creature in it, yet we don’t even trust that He can do some of the simple things in our lives, much less the massive miracles we could watch Him perform. We cheat ourselves. We are children of the God of everything, yes, even those who might not claim Him. There is nothing that we can imagine that God can not do. We just have to truly have faith that He will. Begin thanking Him, and start watching to see how God is going to perform this miracle, so you can see it. How many times have we prayed for something and realize that He did give you what you asked for, it just didn’t come in the packaging you expected, so you didn’t even recognize it right in front of your very eyes. I am just as guilty as anyone else. I have cried over the loss of a relationship with my youngest child, not wanting to have anything to do with her family. I have prayed and prayed. I even keep a solar candle in my window as a symbol. Yet recently God answered my prayer. I had lost my step mother, she was my fathers wife over 33 years, this woman I thought who considered me one of her children. As we grieved her passing sitting at the funeral home, I looked up and there she was. God had granted my prayer. Countless times I had said Lord, if only I could see her again before you take me home. That is exactly what He gave me. I spend time in prayer and as far back as I remember I have asked God to watch over my children and protect them. I asked the Father to help me show Him in my life, and help me to follow His path. Let people who meet me see that my Heavenly Father leads my life, and as His follower that I hear what He is directing me to do. Now, I stop and give this thought and I realize the power behind my prayers. God has grown me closer to Him. I spend time with Him at the least twice a day in prayer. My Children are healthy as are my grandchildren. Many times I have prayed Lord help me to see You at work in my life, so that I may be aware and do my part to join in on your mission. I have all this time alone that has allowed me to see Him at work. I have asked for help with my health, saying Lord I am hurting so bad, I don’t think I can stand this much longer. I was given medication from my Dr that helps ease my pain to the toleration level. My God has heard my prayers and provided me with what I have asked for. It awakens me that we have to be aware exactly how we word our prayers. We can’t say Lord, I don’t think I can take this pain any longer and expect Him to just heal you and remove all pain. That is not what you ask for. He has given us medications that relieve our pain. We are blind to what God is actually doing in our lives. We need to thank Him for all He has done, already. We need to evaluate how many times He did answer our prayers, and praise Him. We have a life in a country where there is food for the hungry, medical assistance for those with out means. As well as aide to help those willing to abide by the rules. The next time you have a need think how to take it to God, then word it correctly. The most important step is to start thanking Him for the miracle that is being answered around you. Start watching for the red sea to open and clear your path. Knowing He is already working to provide your needs. It makes me wish at times that I had just prayed specifically for the miracle I really craved. Why did I put reins on the strongest power on earth? Be confident, be thankful, and be watchful for how God is answering that request you submitted last night. It is beyond amazing to share this with other Christians. We boost one another by sharing.
