We talked this time last year about feeling like God left you on read. I was able to give you 10 reasons.
Just a few reasons:
1. Are you spending time with God? 2. Are your motives good? 3. Did He already answer and you didn’t like what he said?
As I have been praying for things this summer another one came to my attention.
Have my actions aligned with what I’ve been praying for? When I was praying for a baby I was doing everything to show God I was ready.
My pastor says we have to show God we are serious. I wanted a baby but the babies room was my closet. I was partying every weekend and eating terribly. That’s not going to work. I needed to get some things in order.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Mark 11:24 NIV
Do you want a new job and your applying a lot of places but no hits yet? Have you mentally checked out of your current position? Are you still doing your best or just going through the motions?
Your praying for a spouse but have you done your own work to be ready for them when God sends them your way?
You want to write a book but have you set time assign to make sure you get it done?
Don’t read this as manipulation because it’s not. Its putting yourself in the best position possible. It goes back to bloom where you’re planted
Gods timing is always best but we can show him we are ready. Faith without works are dead. We play an active role in our lives. The choices we make big or small make are all impactful.
Until next time,
