Good morning, DearHeart.
I think the more grieved we are about a deal, the more desperately we seek a Word from God. The alertness of our hearing is highly tuned.
That’s why when we pray, we pray til we hear His word, we repeat His promises over and over.
Over and over.
Over and over.
By repeating His promises, they start to settle in, and the promises feel different.
They feel real.
“And because of His glory and excellence, He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share His divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.” 2 Peter 1:4 NLT
Through His promises, He unveils His divinity in you and me. We get His opinion because we keep praying until we understand His will in this … thing … this deal … and once we have His Will and His Word ingrained well within from repeating the promises, then we have the final answer.
That is the pivot.
That is where I pray different. Believing ‘on-steroids’ sort of different.
Have you been there?
Are you going there?
Feeling His promises instead of merely hoping?
Because, when we know His will we don’t pray whiney, shallow prayers, like “Lord, help me, Jesus, help me.” When I know His Will it gives me CONFIDENCE – I pray with CONFIDENCE.
“God, I already know Your opinion on this, and I have come to agree with You. I’ve come to bring Your will from Heaven through me as a channel of faith to the earth.”
Everything changes right there. Everything.
The King of the Universe who has all authority is taking over the behavior of His child.
His will is powering this solution.
No need to budge from believing.
God’s got a plan.
His focus is on you.
