I recently began a program of praying for an hour each day. God has taught me so much through this! Although I’ve heard certain things over and over, I never truly understood them in a meaningful way. In this post, I’m going to talk about some of these things.
First of all, the gift of prayer! It is so amazing that we can come before the presence of the LORD Most High, the Creator of the universe! I know that you’ve probably heard this before, and I know that I have as well, but it’s something that has really “hit home” in the past few days.
Going along with that, God wants to have a personal relationship with each and every one of us! Isn’t that so amazing?!? We, who were lost in sin, we, who are filthy sinners- the LORD Almighty wants to have communion with us! This should cause us to be full of humility and gratefulness (check out the Winter 2018 issue for more on this topic).
Another thing that I have learned is that the Lord holds everything in His hands! He is in control of everything, and everything that He does is for the good of us if we are following Him (Romans 8:28- “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”) When you really ponder this, you will understand that we really have no reason to be afraid, to worry, or to try to make things work together the way we want them to; God has everything under control! We need to have full and complete trust in Him.
Well, I’ve talked enough. Now it’s your turn to get out your Bible and meditate on it, learning more truth from the Word of God!
