CRAZY LOVE calls us to LOVE CRAZY #john316
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. 1 John 5:14 (NIV)
When I was turning 8, I prayed every day to God for a ‘Little Miss Makeup’ doll. I had heard in Sunday school that if I ask anything in God’s name, had faith enough that if would be done, it would be. I can’t remember what I got for my birthday that year, but it wasn’t the doll I had my heart set on.
When I was 13, I prayed every day for a piano to fall on the school bully who was giving me a hard time… it never happened. And the bully continued to be so.
They’re not serious situations, but when figuring out faith, all these scenarios lend to form what you believe. The issue is the confusion around what the “will of God” is. We focus way too much on the geographical and material elements to the will of God, so when we pray, we focus on these things too: new car, bills paid, life partner, make life better, more comfortable, remove this hardship and that challenge…
All these prayers are real and heartfelt – I have prayed them many times, and many times more it seems they go unanswered.
A few thoughts: It is His will that we have hope (Jer 29:11); It’s His will that we overcome (Romans 8:37); that we experience His unexplainable peace (Phil 4:7); that the fruit of the spirit becomes the fruit of our lives (Gal 5:22); That we accept salvation and find our home in Christ (John 3:16, Eph 1:11). There are more elements to the will of God, but all of these listed above are matters of the heart. Imagine if we lived and prayed like God’s will for us has more to do with WHO we become, not WHAT we become? After all, it’s from the heart that our lives are built.
God hears us all – our every word and prayer. But the prayers and requests He can work with are ones that seek to journey further down road of His will and purpose for our lives. The prayers of journey, the prayers that understand the deepness of God and the endurance of His hope. Seek God to fashion you in the midst of your season, not to remove the season of fashioning. Love you guys.
For I resolved to know nothing… except Jesus Christ & him crucified. 1 Cor 2:2
The two responses for FEAR: Do what it says or do the opposite. It’s your MASTER if you do the first & your SLAVE if you opt for the latter.
