Pray Without Ceasing
I’m having a rough day today. Financial things are getting to me, even though I keep praying for God to help me. It’s not His fault because I keep taking back the problems after giving them to Him. Why is it that we do that? I guess it’s part of human nature but it frustrates me also. That is probably human nature too.
I pray asking for His help and guidance in what I should do. Then in a little bit, I’m on line looking for work and it’s hard to know what isn’t a scam and that results in more frustration. How do I get past this frustration? I guess it means I need to be praying more. I Thessalonians 5:17 tells us to “Pray without ceasing.” that’s what I need to do and I really don’t know why it’s so hard. Is it a lack of faith? Anyone know?
God promises to help us and just wants us to ask for His help. The Isaacs sing a song called “In God’s Hands” that speaks of placing our problems in His hands and He will take care of us. I believe this and will continue praying and giving my problems to Him and each time I take it back, I will turn around and give it back to Him.
What is the thing that you give to God and then take back? Let me know in the comments and I will pray for you too.
Til next time!
