It Is Not Natural.

RESTLESS HEART

Don’t worry about anything; instead pray about everything; tell God your needs and don’t forget to thank him for his answers. If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand.” Philippians 4:6-7

 

Worry is natural, faith is not.

When we encounter problems in our lives worry is the natural tendency.

But consider this: how many times has worry solved your problems?

Praying to Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) and having faith that He will answer is not natural, it is spiritual.

 

From my experience it has taken many years to develop faith so strong as to never doubt and even then doubt still occurs sometimes. It started out with little things that were prayed for and were answered. Gradually over time bigger and bigger challenges are given over to Jehovah and faith grows stronger.

 

Another help is to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to bless you with the power to have faith.

And of course, do not forget your manners and say thank you.

After all, why should Jehovah give to an ungrateful whining child?

An added bonus in being grateful is that the more grateful you are the more your life is filled with joy at both the smallest and the biggest answered prayers and the more joyous your life is in general.

Oh yeah, another bonus is how amazingly close you become with Jehovah Abba (God our father).

 

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shalom (God of peace) for the blessing of amazing peace You envelope me in as I place my life in Your gracious hands. Please remind me to always humbly give thanks for Your abundant blessings as they come. I give thanks for these blessings and ask for this blessing in the name of He who had faith total in You as he walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
