I am moved to ask; “do you have a prayer closet?” In times such as this – space premium. Do you have a prayer ‘time’? Wake up in the morning and…??? Before bed after an activity filled day.
You ate, walked, moved, worked, schooled, sat, lay, you ‘lived’. No matter the conditions, you ARE!
Yes, we have shared on this fact. You are…so? Each moment, each lesson, every experience can be used to the grace of God. Every single moment, movement action, reaction… You are a creation! Who, What made you?
Chance? You are for a reason. We can break it down, the sperm found the ova, cells divided and you came to be:
Even in this article (Scientific nonetheless, birth is termed a ‘miracle’.) This IS science! I wanted to show that everything is connected!
You are a miracle. Hold on! A miracle? Doesn’t that term have something to do with a ‘belief system?’ All is connected! We can delve into science. We did recently and pointed out that the ‘brains’ behind current development have some knowledge of what is. We spoke of Albert Einstein.
Let us take a look at some of the current ‘somebodies.’ Ever heard of Bill Gates?
I state this with purpose. We ALL want to be SOMETHING, a SOMEBODY! When you arrive there, IF you arrive there, then?
I will venture to say in the times of Jesus, He was a carpenters step-Son. Famous in the area, or known! 5,000 for food and drink? A ‘concert’ like gathering. So, people gathered to hear him speak…a Star in His day! In more ways than one!
We can see, even in those days there was a “Star.” Yes, we have ‘stars’ today, do they have testimonies? What was the most unique in those days? A crowd/gathering of individuals; five loaves, two fish. And all ate! Doubters may say that the ‘individuals’ present may have brought their own ‘repast’ or vendors would have made a ‘quick buck.’ But, for reason we now are aware of, the disciples were asked to collect the ‘left overs’, I do not have to state what was collected or why!
Doubters will exist in every ‘crowd.’ No problem, for this reason and this reason alone Jesus was moved to ask the ‘left overs’ to be collected. As an aside, when led to do actions that lead to the glory of God, questions need NOT be asked or a pause taken. In this case, were there ‘homeless’ people that what was collected went to? It does not say, but what was done was done and we have heard about it greater than 2,000 years after the day!
There is always a reason for the season, Amen
When you pray in private, you receive publicly to The glory of God. Matthew 6 is so full of teaching. Feel free to read, we will simply take a brief look at what had been said: “Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” This is in respect to giving the needy! (V. 4)
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”
“Before you ask Him.” Let your tears be prayers and your thanks be in all you do! Give God The glory in your coming out and going in, Amen
Father LORD, we lay before Your Throne of wonder in speechless adoration! Glory, for our yeterdays, todays and all our ways. We in no way earned your gifts that are poured out from Heaven. We worship You in Spirit and in truth, Amen
