God’s in Charge

She pleaded with her husband, saying, “Give me children, or I’ll die.”

He responded,”Am I God? He’s the one who has kept you from having children.”

Later we’re told, “God answered her prayers by enabling her to have children (from Genesis 30:1-22).”

Talk with the Lord about your desires, your longings, your needs. He’s the one who can and will do something about them.

 

 

 

Never Unloved

The Scriptures declare that we all fall short of the glory of God, but despite our sin, Jesus radically pursues us to show that we have always been loved.*

In spite of who we are, because of who we are, Jesus invites us to pray.

Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (Romans 10:13).

*Michael W. Smith, UTube video: Never Been Unloved

How to begin a time of prayer

Start with words of affirmation. “I love you, Lord; you are my strength. You are my rock, my fortress, and my Savior; my God in whom I find protection. You are my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. I call on you and you save me (from Psalm 18:1-3).”

This gives God the praise He deserves and it reminds you that He is bigger than your problems.
