My Daily Motto
I remember hearing in a sermon once that you did not have to pray about everything, and those who did were immature. Walking through this life I have found that is not the truth. I try and pray about the littlest things because God loves it when I depend on Him. He has all wisdom for my life even in the minute and common things. He has no condemnation for those who ask anything of Him and delights that you want His input.
For example, when I am undecided about a purchase I am about to make I will ask, “Which one (of these choices) is the best?”, “Do I really need this?”, “I love this thing but does it fit with my style (decor, body type, or presentation)?”, or “Will I regret not buying this?” I will always get an answer; yes, no, or not yet. The Holy Spirit is my teacher and my guide, and when I follow His
recommendations lead I am never disappointed. (The worst though is when I want something I fall in love with and He says “No!”, but that is where trust comes in.) Always pray!
“…do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him,” Col. 1:9
“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thess. 5:17
Then there is fear, something most people agonize over, especially the fear of the unknown. I am sure I’d be full of much more fear if I had not come to terms with it in my own life. I discovered that the more you depend on God and His ability to never leave you or forsake you, and confidence you gain in His love for you, the more fear’s hold loses it’s grip. Because:
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7
Be bold and pray about everything!
