I have to share with you some really good truth from Oswald Chambers’ “My Utmost For His Highest” entry of 02/07/2015. Please reference the Post by the same name as his book title for information on obtaining all of his daily entries for FREE. Here goes and EMPHASIS will be mine throughout:
“Spiritual lust causes me to demand an answer from God, instead of seeking God Himself who gives the answer. What have I been hoping or trusting God would do? Is today “the third day” and He has still not done what I expected? Am I therefore justified in being dejected and in blaming God? Whenever we insist that God should give us an answer to prayer we are off track. The purpose of prayer is that we get ahold of God, not of the answer.
We look for visions from heaven and for earth-shaking events to see God’s power. Even the fact that we are dejected is proof that we do this. Yet we never realize that ALL the time God is at work in our everyday events and in the people around us. If we will only OBEY, and DO THE TASK that He has placed closest to us, WE WILL SEE HIM. One of the most amazing revelations of God comes to us when we learn that IT IS IN THE EVERYDAY LIFE OF THINGS that we REALIZE the MAGNIFICENT DEITY of Jesus Christ.”
End of excerpt.
Please reference the Posts “Answered Prayer” and “Pray On The Potty” for some further thoughts on prayer.
Take care, in Him.
