Sometimes it is easy to think that we can do all things in our own, then we stumble, get frustrated and we feel like life seems falling apart. We forget to pray! Pray about it! Often times, we’ve prayed, fasted, explored countless options and feel helpless because of “unanswered” prayers, well maybe we’re lacking of faith. FAITH and PRAYER must come together. Matthew 17:20 ‘’He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Whenever I read this verse, it brings me peace while I wait! I know that sooner or later God will reveal His purpose in my life. Let’s pray and have faith while waiting, for God’s TIMING is PERFECT!
Patience is not just the ability to wait; it is the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting. WAITING is part of life. Often times we do not wait well and yet, we just complain when all we need to do is pray, have faith and believe that God will work wondrous in our lives. Let’s be PRAYERFUL and seek to obey God. There is nothing God doesn’t already know. He knows our deepest desires, our joys, pain and hopes. And He wants us to share those with Him. Prayer is the ray that connects us with God.
