Glory to Your Name in the Highest.  Thank you for the gift of life and ministries through which we live your desire and purpose for us, glory be to Your Name forever and ever.

Continually will your praise be in my mouth, Ancient One, for do Mighty things too high to be describe by us. Mighty are your works in the life your children.

Beloved, welcome from your bible search of yesterday. How did it go? What are your discovering? Some forgot but is promising to do it. Just tell the Holy Spirit to remind you and you will not forget the second time. Praise God!

I had a wonderful experience and am going to share mine with you, very hopeful you will share yours with us. Praise God.

Though I have read this portion of the bible from the marks I have on it but reading it under the influence of the Holy Spirit and with the mind of discovery made a lots of difference.  Each line holds a promise and I was just shouting wahoo! It was a good exercise for me and I think I have a witness in the house. Praise God!

However, if you are yet to search the scripture please hurry and get intoxicated with the power in the Word and truth of the Word. Praise God!

God’s promises are real. Until you enter into that realm, prayers will be tiring and studying the bible will be tasking. But it ought not to be if we are doing that with the knowledge of Who the Author is. Praise God!

That brings us to the topic of the day. “Praying but not believing.” How often we ask God for something and we are ready on the way to do it our own way.

Or we prayed but believe that though God can do it but will He be graciously enough to do it for me. We know that God can do all things no doubt but will that be case?

You are not alone in it, it is one of the weapon employ by our foe, Satan to create doubt in our heart and cause us to doubt God’s promises in our lives and situations. It so happens also that we are weak in the place of prayer because you don’t know whether God will attend to it or not.

So you pray and at the same time be on your way to sought it out. Many Christians fall into this category. My prayer is that God will help us and enable us to trust Him with our life come what may that He will neither fail us nor forsake us.

The early Christians fell into this error, however we have to guide against it so that we will not be the doubting Thomas of our time thereby delay our miracles and break through.

Let discover more:

She recognized Peter’s voice, and because of her joy she did not open the gate, but ran in and announced that Peter was standing at the gateway. “You’re crazy!” they told her. But she kept insisting that it was true. Then they said, “It’s his angel!”—Acts 12:14–15

You can say prayers in your mind but doubt in your heart. At times God will answer such prayers as He did when Peter was in prison, scheduled for execution. The believers in Jerusalem were powerless to free him, so they prayed. When God released Peter, their reaction revealed the doubt in their hearts. They argued that Peter could not possibly be free, even as he stood outside knocking on the door!

Is it possible to be a “person of prayer” and yet not have faith? Is it possible to fool yourself into believing that because you ask God for help, you have faith in His ability to meet your needs? Is your faith so weak that you are surprised when God answers your prayer? As a child of God, you ought to expect God to answer your prayers.

Do you ask God to do something without adjusting your life to what you are praying? If you are praying for revival, how are you preparing for its coming? If you are praying for forgiveness, are you still living with guilt? If you have asked God to provide for your needs, do you remain worried and anxious?

Ask God to increase your faith and then begin living a life that reflects absolute trust in Him. Out of His grace, God may choose to respond to your requests despite your lack of faith, but you will miss the joy of praying in faith.

Beloved, are you here now with me. If you are then let consider Jesus attitude to prayer. it is a little touch to what we have been considering this week as in soul winning- we are saved to serve. Is good you hear it from the Master’s voice.  Let’s get going:

“I pray not that Thou shouldst take them out of the world.” John 17:15

 

It is a sweet and blessed event which will occur to all believers in God’s own time—the going home to be with Jesus. In a few more years the Lord’s soldiers, who are now fighting “the good fight of faith” will have done with conflict, and have entered into the joy of their Lord.

But although Christ prays that His people may eventually be with Him where He is, He does not ask that they may be taken at once away from this world to heaven. He wishes them to stay here. Yet how frequently does the wearied pilgrim put up the prayer, “O that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away and be at rest;” but Christ does not pray like that, He leaves us in His Father’s hands, until, like shocks of corn fully ripe, we shall each be gathered into our Master’s garner.

Jesus does not plead for our instant removal by death, for to abide in the flesh is needful for others if not profitable for ourselves. He asks that we may be kept from evil, but He never asks for us to be admitted to the inheritance in glory till we are of full age.

Christians often want to die when they have any trouble. Ask them why, and they tell you, “Because we would be with the Lord.” We fear it is not so much because they are longing to be with the Lord, as because they desire to get rid of their troubles; else they would feel the same wish to die at other times when not under the pressure of trial.

They want to go home, not so much for the Saviour’s company, as to be at rest. Now it is quite right to desire to depart if we can do it in the same spirit that Paul did, because to be with Christ is far better, but the wish to escape from trouble is a selfish one. Rather let your care and wish be to glorify God by your life here as long as He pleases, even though it be in the midst of toil, and conflict, and suffering, and leave Him to say when “it is enough.”

Praise the Lord! Beloved, let us pray in like manner that God will hear us from heaven and answer us as we pray. Let us also believe that it done as depicts by AMEN!

Father, we believe it is well with us. With You in our boat we get safe to the shore. Increase our faith o! Lord as we pray.

Beloved, it time to put what we were taught in practice. Let us pray with a believing heart. Praise God!

Oh! Someone wants to know what portion of the bible I read. I read Ps 34 and 145. You can go through it. I will be glad to know where you read as well.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
