Prayer is not only asking, but an attitude of the mind which produces the atmosphere in which asking is perfectly natural. "Ask and t shall be given you," ~ Oswald Chambers
Matthew 7:11 So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask him.
There are more than enough concerns of this world in which we could worry about right? As a disciple of Jesus Christ, I need not - and should not, worry about anything. Things may seem hopeless at times. I may see no end in sight to a valley I am going through. I have to take my eyes off the concern and look to Jesus.
I need to remember that God is the one in control. He loves me and whatever is going on he knows all about it. I can go to Him and He will help me through it. I know my place - and it is not in control. God is the one in control of my life. Whatever the outcome, I can trust Him with it.
There are times, says Jesus, when God cannot lift the darkness from you, but trust Him. ~ Oswald Chambers
God will, however, bring His light into my darkness when I allow Him.
