Have you ever met someone that tells you the same thing over and over every time you see them? Are you looking forward to hearing the same story again? Probably not.
What about my prayers. Somehow the story Jesus told about the widow that came to the judge complaining about her situation until the judge finally could not take it anymore and saw to it that justice was done, has stuck on me.
Do I really need to tell God the same thing over and over? Does God need reminding? Is it possible that his memory is anything short of perfect? I don’t think so. The person that needs to be reminded is me.
My heart needs to remember the awesome relationship that God seeks in me. My heart needs to remember, because my mind can’t conceive the width, the breath and the height of a relationship with God built on love, where the river of life flows through my life. It is the only way for God to lead me and use me as he pleases.
If I am falling asleep saying the same prayer over and over, perhaps God is also yawning. Sometimes God seems far away as we go through life and get so focused on everything that goes on around us. Come Alive Seek God with all that you are. Worship him with your heart and soul. Come alive and step into his glorious light.
close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.
Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret,
will reward you.
You don’t need big words, uncomfortable clothes and a mint to impress God, just a humble heart that loves him and therefore is willing to be obedient to live a life glorifying God in all that you do.
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Then I embrace the moment together with God. I listen as he speaks to my heart. He tells me that he loves me. He knows exactly who I am and what I need. I don’t need words, as my spirit communes with God. That is when my soul soars on wings like an eagle. My tiredness just disappears as I experience his presence.
