Not So Fast – The Things We Need
Week One, Day Four
March 9, 2019
Do you ever find yourself praying very specifically for what you need to happen? Do you leave any room for His will?
Believe it or not, Jesus already knows exactly what you want to happen, but He is an absolute expert on what you need. He is not waiting for you to tell Him the solution; He just wants you to hand over the problem.
Sometimes when we pray, we aren't actually engaging with Christ. We are simply sending our hopes, our fears, and our preferences without trusting God to intervene in a mighty way.
Continuing our fast, do you think you can really lay your troubles at His feet and walk away? Do you believe He makes all things work for the good of those who love Him?
Romans 8:28 says "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
We press on through the unknown. We choose trust through the trials. We choose faith through the fight.
Will we whisper our demands to the only omniscient being that has ever existed, or pray for His power and will to be made perfect in our weakness? You decide.
Heavenly Father, we pray for your perfect will to be done. You know our every need and you measure the steps before us. Please God be a lamp unto our path and help us to trust wholeheartedly. We know that your ways are sufficient, Lord, and we seek to involve you in our situations. Thank you for guiding us in faith. Amen.
