"His Prayer Still Answered"
A man asked for a quick solution to all of his problems.
He instead was taught patience-- to wait upon the Lord.
He prayed so that all the people would love him.
But He was given a love for all people instead.
He asked for charisma that he might have the praise of men;
He was given weakness that he might rely solely on the Lord.
He prayed for confidence to appear "wise" to all men..
He, instead, was given wisdom so that he would actually be wise.
He desired a large ministry so that he'd do the Lord's work.
He was taught, "Do the Lord's work" and found the ministry followed.
He wanted a large budget to do many great things
but was taught that little is much when God is in it.
His prayers were of the worldly kind
Each believer needs the frame of mind
Where worldly thinking is left behind
And God's Will is all desired
We follow the Savior;
And our Savior must lead!
We abandon our reasoning;
And to His voice we must heed!
We learn from our Savior
Oh, that we'd follow the Son
He prayed to His Father;
"Not my will but Thine be done."
Should we not pray the same?
A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that,
if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
Sometimes the prayers we prayed are not answered in the way we
thought they would be answered but when we pray according to
God's will, He hears us. His strength is made perfect in weakness
He gives us life, hope, peace and blessing even in our trials. God
always answers prayer. Sometimes the answer is "yes" and sometimes
the answer is, "No" and sometimes the answer is "Wait". We must leave
our prayers in the Hand of our Master and know that He has all things
in control. May we walk in obedience to His will and trust Him that
He knows what is best for us.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always
having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:
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.
Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall
direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes:
fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
May we do as Hebrews 4:16 tells us:
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Whatever your need is today, look to the Lord!
Our Heavenly Father knows our need even before we ask Him.
May we come boldly to the Father's throne in the name of
the Lord Jesus that we may receive grace in time of need.
If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask
what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.
