God always hears his children when we are open to his will. Isn’t that a wonderful promise?
The universe’s Maker is ready to talk to me 24/7. So why don’t I ask more? God has the ability to solve every problem I give him. So… Why don’t I give him all my problems?
Many times, I find myself trying to accomplish something without God’s help, then just getting anxious or failing miserably. I end up feeling sorry for myself and getting even more wrapped up in my own little world of problems. Why would I do this to myself?!
It’s only my human nature, I guess. I tend to rely on myself, fail without God, and beat myself up over it. See the overwhelming self theme? I don’t need to be like that. If I just take a step back, I can see that things aren’t working out too well because God isn’t involved. It’s not that he will never help me unless I beg for it, but everything will be so much easier if I just give it all to him beforehand.
I’m helpless without him. But all I need to do is ask for his help and his will to be done, and that’s what will happen.
And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. – Luke 11:9, KJV
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive. – Matthew 21:22, KJV
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. – John 14:13, KJV
Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. – Psalm 107:6, KJV
How has God shown you to rely on him?
