Prayer is the pathway for a loving and working relationship with God. Through prayer, we grow in our love for him and our knowledge of God. Prayer is our direct line of ongoing communication with the Father. It never stops; nor should we. Keep the lines open between you and the Father. We are privileged. Pray without ceasing.
There may be some painful parts of your past you wish to forget. It was good you were afflicted. God allowed it that you may be blessed.
You may have been hurt by ones who walked out of your life. God allowed affliction to remove ones he knew were not meant for your destiny that no longer needed to be a part of your life. When God allows affliction, promotion will follow. Painful lessons are necessary. It’s required. You may go through some things. Life may not seem fair. Know God is with you. God’s there.
Run the race. Stand on the promises of God. You will find deliverance. You will make it there. Trust in God.
God will supply all your needs. God knows what it is you need. Jesus tells us not to worry about the needs that God promises to supply (Matt 6:25). Don’t worry and allow it to disrupt or ruin your life.
Worry can affect your health and can consume your thoughts that will impact you negatively. It will disrupt your ability to sustain and live freely. You will become stagnated in productivity. It can affect how you treat others. Negativity will hinder your ability to prosper.
Discern the difference between worry and genuine concern. “Worry immobilizes, but concern moves you into action (6:25).” When you know what you can do, that’s in your control, and what you are capable of doing, do it. Take action. When you know what is not in your control, what you are not capable of and cannot do, give it to God. Let him have control. Let Him do. God has all control. Do your best. Let God handle the rest.
Pain can hurt and negatively affect your life. Worry can disrupt your life. Don’t let it consume you. God is with you. The Lord will provide. God is Jehovah Jireh. He is our provider.
Prayer is the key. Faith unlocks the door. Cast all your cares upon the Lord. Don’t worry about a thing. Don’t let your past hinder you. Give it all to God. Surrender. Trust in God’s will for you.
Pray, stay connected. Talk to God all day. Release the pain that has you disconnected. Praise God, no matter your circumstance today. Give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. There’s purpose in your praise. Praise God for all he has done, what he will do, and what he is going to do!
Be blessed! –JD
Luke 18:1-8 “Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ 4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’” 6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
