Faith to move forward…

Philippians 3:12-14

12 Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal,

but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it.

But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which

God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.


There is such power in prayer. God always meets all of our needs according to his perfect will when we pray in accordance with His will… when we trust Him and not try in our own strength to get everything right. God is God alone and I know He doesn’t depend on our prayers to help Him move and work, but God can do what He wants to do. And he knows exactly what we need.

I’m feeling so small in the world today, I guess. I am in awe of an omnipresent God who really loves us and hears us. It’s such a mysterious wonder.

Some very specific prayer requests I had last week were answered Saturday and yesterday and I just want to praise Him.

It was like everything bad that could happen happened at once… then this past weekend God just parted all the clouds…

and it was just a humbling reminder

that God is always in control

He always knows what He’s doing…

and we must trust Him through the difficulties…

And I am so grateful to live in a country

where I can truly worship freely

and speak the name of Jesus…

not in pushy, arrogant judgement…

but in healing, edifying, encouragement to those who need a good word.

Just as what was done to me yesterday…

I know my God answers prayers…

In His own way.

In His own time.

He already knows what we need for our families, for our homes, for our jobs, for our health… everything. He knows what we need. I’m choosing to trust God today.
