Have you been praying about something and it just seems like nothing is happening? Sometimes it might even seem like things have gotten more difficult instead of better? What is the specific details of your prayer? Think about what you are asking for. So often we get caught up in asking God for something…and expecting God to do the work for us. God has given us full capability to be self willed and productive individuals. God’s desire for us, is to grow and strengthen on a daily basis…fully relying upon Him in all areas of our life. So, if you are praying about something that you are fully capable of changing or doing yourself…then God does not want to hinder your growth! Think about what you are asking for in prayer. If you are asking for something that actually takes effort on YOUR part…then stop blaming God for not doing the work for you. God is always there to guide you and lead you. However, God is not going to take away the lesson…the blessing…or the growth that we all gain…when we press through and conquer what God knows that we can do our self. Pray for God to help you, and you will be amazed at what you are able to accomplish.
And God is able to make all grace abound in you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 CORINTHIANS 9:8
Therefore, prepare your minds for action; be self-controlled; set your hope fully on the grace to be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. 1 PETER 1:13
God is with us.
