I know what I want, it is not what I need. Is it?
The Bible says The LORD says “shall supply ALL your needs according to His Riches in glory…”
It blows the mind.
Hold up! It is not monetary, so many feel that it is. I will suggest that you praise God for fulfilling and supplying all your needs. Remember, “In all things give thanks.”
Amazing to think like this if and when you cannot pay Bill’s, lost your job, lost a house… it goes on.
ASK AND YOU SHALL RECIEVE! Amen. Faith it! What you DO NOT see is yours in the spiritual, just believe it and you receive.
Get ready to praise HIM!!! Amen.
But we pray:
Incline my heart unto Thy testimonies, and not to covetousness.
Brings a key point, what is a testimony? What God does in your life. Something to dwell in thanksgivings each moment, Amen.
“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NKJV)
In tribulation, give thanks, in plenty give thanks, in lessons give thanks. We have shared on this in the past, but there is nothing new under the sun.
” The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Ecclesiastes 1:9 KJV
Let me share in another translation BBE
“That which has been, is that which is to be, and that which has been done, is that which will be done, and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Ecclesiastes 1:9 BBE
“That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Ecclesiastes 1:9 ASV
No matter the translation, it says the same thing!
ALL has happened before and will happen again! The Red Sea, The Isrealites crossing on bare ground, yes! It was windy, but they all with belongings, livestock and all made it across! There were men on horseback. I have had this discussion, “they were too far back! They just lost thir first borns… ” ‘Resons’ fill the room. Yet, it happened! It is His-story, will you let God write your story?
So many times ‘patience’ is a HUGE thing! Have you heard “Waiting on The LORD?” J it st what is that?
God’s time is right, Amen
We could go on, but I think a point has been made. Pray without ceasing! Let prayer be on the tip of your tongue.
Ever had someone ‘compliment’ you on your prayer? No? Either you do not pray with people or even another person, or you do not know how to speak with your Creator.
It is an open line, use it! Amen
Remember, “Jesus promising His presence with two or three gathered together is Matthew 18:20. “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there among them” (NRSV).
We should take a minute to focus on group prayer:
Group prayer among Christians is important and rewarding. It has been this way from the beginning of the church. In Acts 2, when the disciples by the power of the Spirit were preaching and thousands were being saved, the church had a plan, and they carried it out in community. “They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42, NASB). Group prayer was important in the early church as something that bound them together as they carried out the Great Commission.
In Acts 4:31 group prayer is noted again, “And when they had prayed, the place where they had gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak the word of God with boldness.” God gave boldness to the whole group in their witness, in response to their prayer. They needed this power, as they were facing persecution.
In Acts 6:3-4, “But select from among you, brethren, seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task. But we will devote ourselves to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.” Prayer was one of the highest priorities of the church leadership.
The Holy Spirit is always praying in and through us “through wordless groans” (Romans 8:26), and Jesus taught the importance of personal prayer in secret in the inner room (Matthew 6). But group or corporate prayer has a place as well. Group prayer knits believers together and encourages the burdened. When a group of believers pray together, the result is unity, humility, thanksgiving, confession of sin, intercession, and discovery of God’s will.
