“Hear me as I pray, O LORD. Be merciful and answer me!” (Psalms 27:7 NLT)
We often run to God when we experience difficulties. But David sought God’s guiding presence every day. When troubles came his way, he was already in God’s presence and prepared to handle any test. Believers can call to God for help at any time, but how shortsighted to call on God only when troubles come. Many of our problems could be avoided or handled far more easily by seeking God’s help and direction beforehand. (Tyndale Study Bible)
As was said yesterday, have faith you will lack nothing, He will stand by you faithfully and give you peace. If you need more, just ask (pray).
I have said this before, every one of us has called on God in our darkest hour. Or maybe you have not experienced that yet It’s different for everyone.
Have you met people that struggle with things like kids, managing their finances, wasting money, gambling or overindulging, etc.? For you that know me, I have been there. The thing is if you want to improve you have to acknowledge your flaws.
With any issue or opportunity you can, you must ask God for guidance and strength. My first comment was that I know it works.
The big question is: why don’t we just ask up front? PRAY!
“Dear Lord, I pray that you will give me strength, wisdom and courage to overcome any situation that comes my way. Yes, I am vague, but You know what will come my way. I pray for trust in You. I thank you for all my blessings and knowing You. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.”
