Day 10 of Lent
Thank you for joining us today for our daily Bible reflection.
TODAY’S BIBLE VERSE:
BUT FOR YOU, O LORD, DO I WAIT; IT IS YOU, O LORD MY GOD WHO WILL ANSWER.
Often times I catch myself praying for my will to be done. Most of the time it’s subconsciously. I am sure I do it more than I catch myself. When I do realize it instantly do something like this:
By asking God to do my will, I am saying (whether I realize it at the time or not), “God, I don’t trust what you have planned for me so I would like you to conform to my will this time – not me conforming to yours.” That is a slippery slope my friend, a slippery slope. Not to mention it’s praying the complete opposite of the absolute best prayer… the prayer Jesus gave us – the Our Father in which we pray “Thy will be done”.
When we pray – God hears us. He promises He hears us and He answers. Often we are too blind to realize the prayer has been answered. Other times the prayer has been answered and the answer was not what we wanted so we tell ourself the prayer wasn’t answered. Garth Brooks sang a song about this once:
One thing is for certain. It is God who will answer! And it is worth the wait.
