Prayer Request

Jeremiah 29:11:

For I know the Plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.

God plans are for welfare, to give a future and a hope, not evil this scripture says! The goodness and mercy of God is ever before us all!

God is personal, a thinking being. God thinks about us. As far as He is revealed to us in the bible and in Christ. He is directly concerned with His works and His children. God thinks what is true and wise and good. If we know what He thinks of us, we know how He intends to act. God is as great in power as He is wise and good in thought.

He never imposes upon His people a burden greater than they can bear. The mind of God is a mystery to us, but He knows His own plans for us. God's way of dealing with us are often puzzling, but He has a gracious purpose in His sovereignty.

Whatever the storms we face, the freer our access to God in prayer!
Where God "may be found." God is inviting us to Himself! The road has already been paved for us by our Lord Jesus Christ. There is no bumps or pot holes or cracks on this road! There is no stop signs, or animals crossing to detour us! Christ is our High Priest and has made the road clear for us to come to the Father with our prayers.

Prayer must be offered in the faith that God is and is the hearer and answerer of prayer. And that He will fulfill His word.

God is to be believed for His word sake, but also for His namesake!

Most people when they lie awake worrying over their circumstances, only bring dark depressing, anxious thoughts. Usually the imagination fashions bad thoughts about the future, and presenting all the issues that unfold in the mind as disastrous.

Even our past sins, going over them in our mind is a waste of time. God has forgiven them at the cross, as Jesus bore them for you and I. All those sins are pardoned! Going over past sins is wrong. For it is dishonoring to God. If God no longer remembers them, then we should too!

If we lie awake at night, we should set our thoughts on God! Even our circumstances seem to gain a hope that all will be well in time. No one has fallen so low that God cannot reach down and lift him up. If you are facing a crisis, tell Him about it: "Lord, I don't understand what is going on here, but I accept by faith the fact that You are in control and You will help me through this moment and bring hope and purpose."

God has a plan for you and will fulfill His purpose in it. Rom. 8:28, His provision is always best! No evil will take you by storm, trust Him for your welfare. There is a future and a hope!

What is your attitude right now towards God? Are you trusting in God entirely? You don't know what God is doing behind the scenes, and what He is going to do in your life! Everyday you should be building a confidence in God by faith. Do you believe in a miracle working God?

We must give God elbow room to work in our lives. Our burdens we give to God, the ones that bring us to wit's end corner. And let Him work it out in His time. It may seem at the moment that it's taking Him a long time. But what are you doing with this time? Are you drawing closer to Him, or concerned more of your needs? He knows what you need.

Faith must be tested, because it can be turned into a personal possession only through trial. What is your faith up against right now? Believe on Jesus, and all you come up against will develop your faith!

When we sorrow, it is not without hope! Our present is linked with the future. We must turn our hearts to God! There are times He disciplines us because of sin. We must repent and turn to Him in faith. This is the time to examine our lives before our God. God will not hear our prayers if there is sin in our lives! Israel was in captivity in Babylon. And now needed to heed the voice of God in their sin. God waited on their actions, and God promised a future and hope. His thoughts were of peace and love. God brought their captivity to an end in His time. A God who thinks of His people.

Faith is trust in God, trust which never doubts. That He will stand by us! We can be confident about the future because He has a plan for our lives.

There is no confusion in Heaven only plans! Our delays are never denials. We must seek God with a whole heart! As we pray according to His will.
