Pray to God not your problem

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes

When you have a problem and you decide to pray to God about it, you need to keep your eyes on him not your problem. The problem will be resolved, but it will be more difficult if you focus on the problem and not on the solution. 2 Chronicles 20:12 says “Our eyes are upon thee.” This means your eyes need to be on God not your problem.

Stay focused on God and he will solve your problem and you will be able to move on. Pray for the solution and then thank God for it each time you think about it. Don’t let the devil try to get in and try to convince you that you are not getting anywhere with God. He comes but for one thing and that’s to kill, steal, and destroy. Don’t let him win. Focus on God and you will win!

Do you receive what you ask the Lord for?

I read a quote today that made perfect sense. I had never thought about it that way before, but it is so true. The quote is from O. Hallesby and it’s below.

“If God does not give you something you ask for, wait on Him. He will speak with you tenderly and sympathetically about the matter, until you yourself understand that He cannot grant your prayer.”

I was thinking about this quote and it came to me. It’s possible that the reason why God is not going to grant your prayer is because you are either not supposed to have whatever you asked for or you must go about it a different way. This could mean you have to work harder to get what you want because it’s not going to be handed to you or it could mean that what would happen after you received what you prayed about would have a negative outcome.

Just because you didn’t get what you wanted doesn’t mean God does not listen to your prayers. Let him speak to you and he will explain why he is not going to give it to you. You might be relieved and thankful in the end.
