Good Monday morning, friends! I invite you to join me in reflecting on 2016 as it draws to a close. Did you set any goals for yourself or your family? If so, how close are you to achieving them? Did you pray a particular prayer for which you’re still awaiting God’s response? If so, I’m right there Waiting as well.
I set a few personal goals this year that have exceeded my expectations. I’ve grown more confident as a blogger, and my faith in God has increased as a result of many answered prayers, miracles I’ve witnessed, and visions that God has allowed me to see. It’s truly been a bizarre year. Perhaps I was finally ready to receive what God revealed to me this year, but I still have a few questions and a few unresolved issues that are likely to follow me into the new year. I have faith that God will tie up a few of these loose ends, and it’s ok if a few of them drift into the new year. Though I’m unable to see how some of these issues will be resolved, I truly believe that he will once again exceed my limited expectations.
If you’re like me and in limbo about a decision that must be made or you can’t see past the minutiae associated with the problems in your life, please pray this prayer with me and believe with all your might that God is working it out right now.
Father God, I have no control over my current situation, and I lay it at your feet. Please remind me to leave it there and walk away. Have your way and do your will. Lord, prepare me for the outcome — whatever it may be. You’re the author and the finisher of my life; you already know how this will play out. I know that you’re a healer, that you’re faithful, and that you’re mighty. I trust in your promise to go before me. It strengthens me as I move forward. Keep me in your tender care and help me to feel your presence as I battle the giants in my life. Depression, anxiety, cancer, and PTSD are no match for the God of heaven’s armies. Heart disease, dementia, diabetes, and leukemia are no match for you, omnipotent Lord — so mighty in battle. Father, heal every broken heart, settle every looming debt, deflect every fiery dart, and unchain those bound by fear. Allow your Spirit to comfort us and command your Angels to guard us as we continue to press toward the mark. Use us as your hands and feet to serve your people. Let our lights so shine that we draw others to you, Lord. Equip us to slay our giants and sustain us to keep fighting. In the name of Jesus our provider and the source of our strength…Amen.
I believe in the power of prayer. Won’t you please join me in the comments and add your petitions? What are you faithful that God will wrap up for you? Have you been waiting a while? Somebody’s wait will be over today. Someone’s prayer will be answered in a mighty way, and I look forward to hearing your testimony.
Before you leave, turn up the volume and enjoy my Music Monday selection from James Fortune entitled I Believe. May blessings abound! <3
