Morning and welcome to Monday.
there are many times when the demands of work seem to be relentless. As a Christian it is very easy to ask God why it is that the situation, whatever that might be, remains pressing in and is not resolved when I have ” prayed about it and everything!!!”
Well I have experienced personally many answers to prayer and most of these have come after a period of persistent prayer and patience but my little verse today reminds me that I must play my part . And the part I need to play has been described as being the size of a mustard seed. It is to have a real and definite little bit of belief, faith in The Lord who loves me.
the verse is this
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. (Hebrews 11:6)
the little bit in this verse that talks about me being in a state of believing is the key bit. Faith it tells me is needed to please God and for me to receive any kind of reward, such as peace of heart , a problem resolved etc I must believe (faith again) that He exists.
So may be the starting prayer for me is to ask for that faith as it in itself is a God given gift. I can’t manufacture it , only God can give me the faith I need.
so let’s ask Him.
have good week
