WORD&POWER for TODAY
TELL GOD WHAT YOU NEED, DO NOT COMPLAIN
“Don’t worry about anything, but in all your prayers ask God for what you need, always asking him with a thankful heart.” Philippians 4:6 GNB
“Oh God … why me?! Why me … oh God?!” Are the rhetorical questions a lot of people repeat when they get a chance to speak to God. They present themselves as victims of circumstances, expecting pity from God. Such attitudes do not move God as much as faith does.
Jesus did not teach us to querry The Father when we have needs. He didn’t tell us to question God, and demand explanations as to why He allowed us to be broke or suffer any form of challenge. He simply taught us to “ask”: “Ask, and you will receive; … For everyone who asks will receive.” Matthew 7:7-8 GNB. Another attitude a lot of people have is that of ingratitude. They are so consumed with their desire to achieve their aims that they get blinded to whatever God has done, or is presently doing. They just talk at God. Some even give Him ultimatum as to when He should do their bidding, else they would stop serving Him.
Those are wrong ways of relating with God. He has done more things for you than the few few things you are asking Him to do. Let your Praises and Thanksgiving be more than your requests. Tell Him exactly what you need amidst your Thanksgiving. Do not sit down and worry. Do not sit down thinking God has failed you. He doesn’t fail …and He cannot fail! Make clear what you need Him to do for you in the middle of your Thanksgiving, and wait for Him to do them. Do not worry and complain; make your requests known to God.
If you have been blessed by this message, please share it. As it is written; “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” Psalms 68:11. GOD will bless you greatly for spreading His Word!
