Everything we go through should be prayed about. Take for instance a marriage or family struggle, a lost job, an illness, or any battle that changes our lives we tend to:
- We get angry or disappointed at the person or situation
- We blame ourselves
- We allow separation from others as well as God
- We cry out at God instead of to God
- We isolate ourselves
- We look at the situation instead of the One who has a solution
- We criticize, condemn, or compare and in turn we should confess our need for Him and thank Him for what He is about to do.
God is with us all the way. He always has a plan. We must be thankful in all that He is doing and showing us. Instead of why me, why not me; instead of poor me, pour into me. Sometimes it takes a wrong for one to go through for all to grow in His love and to be able get it right.
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”
Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
I Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV
“‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’”
Jeremiah 33:3 NKJV
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 NKJV
“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:37-39 NKJV
Stop and pray
He will show you the way;
Thank Him and seek His plan,
So, you will see all that you can.
