Alright its Sunday Devotional you guys! Today I want to talk about a verse that stood out for me this whole entire week, and I know this is just God testing my faith because I am going through a time where I need to be stronger than ever. The verse is the following:
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6
You see what this means is to not worry or think that it will be the end of the world just because you think something might not go the right way…..or Your way. See what I did there? The timing of God is always perfect, but we need to wait on him! We always look for God when we go through things, but our problem is that we always ASK. We never stop and realize that God already has our situation under control.
Some people usually think of God as, “If you created me then give me everything I want.” Just like a little child in a candy store asking the parents or even making a fuss because we want something, and we want it now! We never think of the goodness that God already gave us, keeps giving us, and will keep giving us.
Okay let me put it this way: We never see the beauty behind our blessings. We are all not perfect therefore we always go back to the phrase of “I want and Give me” yet we never see where God has us now, and that our battles are not like everyone else. We all go through different situations because our lives our different and therefore we are all unique.
This bible verse is saying to thank the lord FIRST because God already knows our needs. We need to pray thanking for every blessing we have, and then at the last say:
“God, you only know what I am going through and what I need. I don’t want to ask you for anything because you already are providing for me, and working in my life. I may not understand this situation, I might not be happy right now, but all I am asking you is to help me through this because without you I am nothing. There is a reason why I am going through this problem, why I may not have this certain thing, but all I know is that if it is for my own good then you will provide it for me. Yet under this storm I thank you for the gift of LIFE because some other people at this very moment are taking their last breath, or waking up to see a loved one passed away during the night.”
When you talk to God see him as your best friend, and talk to him as if you had him face to face. What would you ask God or what would you say to him? You do know that only HE brings peace to this unpredictable life. If you have a problem and do not know how to fix it do not be anxious because God has everything under control. Even if the situation does not get fixed the way you want it just remember that at the end of the day only God has a say.
If you believe in him with all your heart and you present yourself to him humble, and giving him thanks then watch your life turn around so fast that you will be surprised at the blessings that will come your way. Trust me on this one because if God can work like that in my life then he can work the same in your life.
Believe. Trust. Pray.
