Wow. That took guts.
I understand this in the area of prayer with regard to needs.
I do not take for granted that I have been given so much more than many. I don’t worry about where food or water will come from. I have many advantages. And in this state, I can grow complacent. Most of my prayers are of thanksgiving for personal blessings in this season of life.
So when a circumstance comes along that I have no resources for, I begin to take prayer a little more seriously. If the situation worsens, I raise the level and intensity of my prayers.
Thanks be to God (and I do mean that), there are times when the situation becomes so obviously tangled in despair, that unless God intervenes in a mighty way, all hope is lost.
And that, my friend, is when you find me throwing away all pride and concern over what anyone might think of me. Hands raised, tears streaming; basically holding a spiritual sign up to the heavens saying….
We have a Savior who LIVES to intercede for YOUR NEED – today. Do not hesitate to present your requests to Him.
As always, if you are in a season of calm; give thanks to Him. Look around your area of influence for the signs of desperation in those who journey alongside you right now. Stand with them, encourage them to continue hoping and trusting, pray for them and with them.
In so doing, we help one another hold up those signs and thus fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)
God bless each of you today <3
