Prayer

Here lately, I've had several people in my life ask me to pray for them. I came across a sheet of paper that I'd written some Bible verses on this morning, and looked them up. For those of you reading this who've asked me to pray for you; consider these God's promise to you.

Deuteronomy 32:3 & 4 I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God! 4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.


This is for any of you that think God does something for no reason~whether that be a new attitude you get over a much prayed for situation, or that hope that you are scared is false~ALL HIS WAYS ARE JUST. Every single one of them.

Psalm 56:3 & 4 When I am afraid, I will trust in you. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man to do me?

It is true that when God is for us~who can be against us? Whatever that may be~in the book of Daniel, I love the story about Hananiah, Azariah and Meshael getting thrown into the fiery furnace {or Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego}. They knew that one of three things would happen as King Nebuchadnezzar ordered they be thrown to their certain "death". They knew that God would either deliver them FROM that fiery death, THROUGH that fiery death, or He would take them straight into Heaven with Him. How awesome to have that same faith of those three!! But we should, because THAT is the same God whom we serve.

Psalm 111:7 & 8 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. 8 They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness.


Here is that word again~"just". One of the ways that the Webster's dictionary defines "just" is this~"acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright and good; righteous." Just stop there for a minute and drink that in. Don't you love His written word?? You can bet that you are facing what you are for a reason. He does NOTHING without a plan.

Lamentations 3:22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.

He gets us through life! Whatever trial~He will get us through. He carries us when He needs to. Remember the story of Footprints? How during the hardest season in that man's life, there were not 2 but only 1 set of footprints. The man thought the Lord had desserted him, but it was during that time the Lord carried him through. He will do the same for you.

2 Corinthians 1:21 & 22 Now it is God who makes both us and you stand firm in Christ. He anointed us, 22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guarateeing what is to come.

This life is only temporary. Whatever you're going through~it's only temporary. God is going to deliver us from this world one day and the things we thought were so important will seem trivial.

God tells us not to put our hope in this world, but to put our hope in Him. He is the one thing that is everlasting. Grab onto Him today, and vow never to let go.
