My Prayer Experiment!
Yesterday was kind of like an experiment for us. I asked for prayer requests, not really expecting too many people would respond. And to my absolute amazement, your heartfelt requests poured in all day long on facebook, twitter and on the blog site… and your requests were far more specific than I expected!
This made me so HAPPY! I loved praying for you guys… it was SO MUCH FUN! In fact, praying for you brought about a tremendous level of personal victory to me and my family! This is a scriptural concept: give and it shall be given, pressed down, shaken together, and running over!
God blesses the blesser!
Well, I gave my time and passion to pray for my friends… and God POURED His love into my heart like I haven’t felt in a long time. It always happens this way for me. In my time of biggest challenge, whenever I reach out to bless others, God ALWAYS reaches back and blesses me!
Your Faith Impresses Me!
Another thing I noticed about yesterday, is that this blog site hit a three-month-high in traffic! Meaning, that this tribe places a VERY HIGH value on the subject of PRAYER! I think this is a very strong indication of our FAITH in God to move mountains and make impossible things possible!
I want to believe in God more today than I did yesterday and more tomorrow than I do today. While so many people start out so spiritual and lose their confidence in God because of situations they cannot explain, I want to TRUST GOD EVEN WHEN I CANNOT TRACE HIM.
God is Always Working in Our Lives!
For every one thing going wrong, there are a hundred things going right in my life and in yours, too! We have to FOCUS on the things God is doing in our lives… we have to KEEP LOOKING and ALWAYS LOOK for HIS MIRACLES! Sometimes, God is not identified in the casual glance… and we have to LOOK again… until we SEE HIM at the very center of our lives moving heaven and earth to MAKE US everything we ought to be!
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Eternal vs. Temporary Paradigms!
God works in our lives with an ETERNAL PARADIGM. Because we are more in touch with this temporary physical world, we usually want him to work in our lives through our TEMPORARY PARADIGM. And what we need to understand is this: what’s happening IN US is far more valuable than ANYTHING happening TO US!
God IS Answering Prayer!
God does answer prayer! He is working all things out for our HIGHEST ETERNAL GOOD! When we pray to Him, he always HEARS us… and he works through people and the laws of nature and governments and societies… He’s doing more than we will ever know to BLESS US LIKE HE ALWAYS DOES!
So, let’s KEEP ON PRAYING! Let’s PRAY SO MUCH MORE! Our prayers are a mighty force to be reckoned with! We’re moving mountains… we’re shaping history… we’re saving the world!
I thank God that yesterday showed me how MUCH FAITH is still in the earth today! You guys BELIEVE IN GOD! You are the salt of the earth… a city of people set on a hill for all the world to see! Keep shining everyone… have a most triumphant day! I love you all…
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
