Hebrews 3:6 But Christ, as the Son, is in charge of God’s entire house. And we are God’s house, if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ. (New Living Translation)
Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations; (KJV)
Do you pray with confidence?
Are there times when you pray and you feel you will not get the answer you are looking for? It could be, you understand your request may not be in the will of God. It could be, you don’t think you deserve what you want. Maybe the enemy has convinced you God does not love you. The wonderful thing is you don’t have to be motivated by what you think or the lies the devil whispers. You can stand n the word.
John 15:7 But if you live in life-union with me and if my words live powerfully within you—then you can ask whatever you desire and it will be done. (The Passion Translation TPT)
No matter how many reasons you have, remember Who you serve.
2 Corinthians 1:20 In Jesus we hear a resounding “yes” to all of God’s many promises. This is the reason we say “Amen” to and through Jesus when giving glory to God. (The Voice)
You base how God responds to your prayers on who He is, not who you are, how hard you are praying, nor what you have done. You don’t have the big picture. He always answers. It just may not be the answer you were looking for. You are a part of the household of faith, where Jesus is the head of the house. He loves you and covers you.
Hebrews 7:25 Therefore He is able also to save to the uttermost (completely, perfectly, finally, and for all time and eternity) those who come to God through Him, since He is always living to make petition to God and intercede with Him and intervene for them. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
Be assured, God will take care of you and give Him praise because He is El Emunah [el ē-ma-na] (The Faithful God).
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I come to You with my petitions. I repent for the times I thought You would not do what I was asking before I asked You. My behavior was an indication of my weakness and my frailty, not a testimony of who You are. I’m grateful You don’t evaluate life and things the way I do. I’m thankful You are faithful to do what You promise, each and every time. You said You would never leave me nor forsake me. I stand on Your word. I know You love me. I know loving me doesn’t mean You will always do what I want. It means You will do what Your word says. Thank You for continuing to teach me and guide me until I come to the place where my confidence is unwavering in You, regardless of the situation. I don’t want to be hindered by what I’ve done. I want to concentrate on who You are. You are always faithful even in the times when I was the one who strayed away and messed up. You are and forever will be El Emunah…
