Good point, Victor. I get hung up on, "Thy Will"--KNOWING I could never profess to know His Will! And yet the Word tells us to bring all to Him. My faith is shaky at best at times!Blessings!@
Hi Lulu,My faith is shaky too, so much so that He must be getting fed up with me. I agree we do not know His will, however, when I pray the Lord's Prayer I say "Thy (good) will be done"; because, since He loves us, then His will for us would be for the good. When we pray we should believe that He has our good in mind; otherwise, what is the point of praying.God bless you, Lulu.
Such a good question you presented here. I have been thinking along the same lines, of late, and often I recall Jesus' words, "According to your faith, so be it unto you." So, if our receiving is according to our believing, that really reveals praying in a whole, new light to me. I have been very conscious lately of this when I pray, and I am praying with more expectation than ever before. I also love the verse in Job that talks about decreeing a thing and it being established unto us. There is much power in our words and in our expectations of what God will do for us. Thank you for this, Victor. God bless you, my friend.
Hello Cheryl,This matter has been on my mind too. Jesus often said to people, "Your Faith has saved you", before He healed them. He was saying that we need to believe in Him, as we ask for His help. The man with an epileptic son was honest enough to say to Jesus, "I believe, Lord; help my unbelief". (Mark 9:24).Are we as honest when our Faith falters?God bless you and your family, Cheryl.
That lawnmower picture takes me back to the day when we lived in a place where grass grew and needed to be tended. Nothing but sand and random stuff 'round these parts.
Over here, the grass grows as you are cutting it. You turn round and look behind you and the bit you have just mowed has grown again.God bless.
I PRAY FOR ALL WHO COMMENT HERE. God bless you.
