I was walking around in my driveway this morning praying. I was praying for strength for this day. I was praying to have a good attitude. I was praying for the day.
Psalm 118.24 this is the day the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
I then had this thought……. Should I be praying for strength which is something that the Lord has given me or should I be praying for my unbelief? In other words, Lord I know you have given me strength but do I actually believe that?
How many times do we ask the Lord to give us strength and then we fall?
We get in an argument with a client, or we fight with our children or our spouses, maybe we cut somebody off on the road or we make a bad choice when sitting in front of the computer. I don’t know you fill in the blank.
After this happens you think wait a minute I prayed for strength today what just happened? I prayed for wisdom today and that was a pretty stupid decision I just made. I think you get the point.
Nehemiah 8:10 Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
Psalm 46:1-3 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. …
How many times do we pray for peace or we pray for strength or we pray for wisdom and then turn around and step right in God’s way and destroy whatever he’s trying to do?
Mark 9:24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, “I believe; help my unbelief!”
Maybe the prayer needs to be as simple as Lord I believe help me with my unbelief.
Why are you walking in unbelief?
Seek and you will find.
