Why Wait?

God has everything we need and yet we wait, sometimes until the very last moment, to ask for help. We wait until we’ve exhausted every other resource, all our ideas, every other option before seeking Him.

Our God is a gracious God. He watches us, cares for us, loves us and provides for our every need. And yet, He allows us to try it on our own first. Very often, but for the prayers of our parents, grandparents, friends, spouses, siblings and children we would be out of luck simply because we did not ask.

Matthew 7:7 says; you receive not because you ask not…

James 4:3 says; When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

So, I assume that if I am not receiving what I want either my motives are wrong or I have not asked. I long to pray with other warriors, agreeing, for God’s intervention in our land.

May God rule with His mighty hand, may His love sustain us, may His presence guide and protect us. May we be His completely and speak to everyone of His love and abiding faithfulness.

Families, I challenge you to pray together for our nation to return to God. Ask the Father to control our government and cause them to do what is right. Pray for all Christians to be strong in faith and outspoken about God’s love and faithfulness. Seek Him in all things and praise His name all day long.
God bless.
