A Blessed New Year to one and all! We have entered another decade with joy and faith in Christ!
As Christians, we know that whenever we need anything from God, we simply have to make our requests known to Him through prayer.
Now, what do you want for your life this new year?
Whenever we want something, we want to receive it right away. In today’s world, we get everything in an instant. Fast food, fast information (Google), fast purchases (same day shipping), fast communication, fast transportation, and even fast fashion. The new generation is so used to this that they easily get impatient when they don’t get things as fast as they expected.
When we want something from God, we also want to receive it right away. Oftentimes, we get anxious and worried waiting for God to give us our answers. The Lord makes us patient so that when we receive His blessings, we will be truly ready.
In every request, remember that God knows best. He may or may not give you exactly what you ask for, but He does what is best for your life. The Bible says:
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
You may think right now that “A” is what you need, but God knows that what you really need is “B”. As humans, we are highly intelligent beings, but God is still superior above us all. Trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding.
Do not err, my beloved brethren.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
