Word of the Day... October 28, 2012

14 And we are confident that he hears us whenever we ask for anything that pleases him. 1 John 5:14

Prayer was never intended as a vehicle by which I get my will done on earth.  Prayer is when I cooperate with God so that His will can be done on earth.  Even Jesus prayed: “Not as I will but as You will” (Matt. 26:39)

I have an agreement with God.  If I ask God for anything that is not according to His will, I want Him to just ignore it.  Even if I get upset and pout and complain, ignore it! 

Sometimes I may think that I know what is best for my life, but I have discovered that God really knows best.  So there is tremendous confidence that comes when I pray in God’s will submitting my concerns to Him.
