To all the true believers of God, or any higher power, that have been discouraged about how their life has played out, or are unhappy about certain events in your life, this message is for you. It is very easy for us to throw out a quick, fix it Jesus prayer, and then leave all of our problems on the altar, as we should. The only problem with only asking for a fix and then doing nothing else about what needs to be fixed, is the Lord may be answering your prayers but you aren't able to see the fix or the change, because you are continuing to surround yourself with the same catalysts that are causing the problems in the first place. It is like asking God to bring you out of your financial problems but you are still buying $100 worth of lottery tickets every week. Are you praying for the Lord to help you gamble your way out of your poverty, or are you going to ask the Lord to give you a clear mind to see reality and improve your bad habits that may be keeping you in that same poverty you would like to be removed from? You pray for one thing, but hold on to another that completely cancels out your prayers. Or the Lord has still made a way for you (mercy and grace) but you are still focused on that bad habit that you don't see your miracle waiting right in front of you. We are all sinners, and yet many of us are still very blessed and very favored. The difference between the "unlucky" sinner and the blessed one, is more than likely they are on a path of betterment, and they are doing their part to make sure that their life improves, they are helping others do the same, and biggest of all is that they have the clarity that they need to make sure they are making better decisions. Instead of always praying for a fix or a change, pray for clarity and revelations so you can see and understand why things are happening around you the way that they are... So you can adjust your life and thinking for the better. Everything that happens, has happened in response to something else. "Every action has a reaction" ...whether you caused the action or not. Sometimes the people that you keep around you have negative vibes and "bad karma" that have held you captive just because of your close association. (Reasons why you should watch who you keep around you and always make sure your faith is stronger than any ill prayer that someone prays onto you). Pray for your clarity and for reasoning so your next move is your best move, and only take the like-minds with you. People will pull you down, back and sideways, and it may not even be on purpose (for some), but this is still the truth, so continue to keep the faith. The fact that you pray at all shows you have some level of faith and remember, you only need a little (faith of a mustard seed), but oh when your faith is grand!!!!! God will surely show up and he will definitely show out! I am the walking testimony of how my faith has gotten me thus far!
[And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.]
-Matthew 17:20 (The Holy Bible - New Revised Standard Version)
You just make sure you are praying for the right things, and truly believe that it will happen. So do not get discouraged, or give the Devil any satisfaction... not even for a second. God hears you, and He is not ignoring you. Now the question is, do you hear you?! And what are you going to do about making sure you get the change that you want? Stay blessed all!
"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
-Psalm 118:24 (The Holy Bible - New Revised Standard Version)
Rejoice!!! The day is yours!
