letting God be God.

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1

Faith in Jesus

These past couple of weeks have been a huge test for me, in Faith. My mom’s job transferred her to a new place and she was not happy about it. At all. She was in fact miserable for a bit. I prayed with her. Tried to encourage her. Called her. Had others praying for her. At the end of the day, I need to let God do the rest. And that is when my Faith kicked in.

You see, this came to a huge lesson for me. I need to be still and let God be God. This is the problem I tend to have sometimes. I pray, and read, I seek and if I don’t see it happening….soon. I tend to think, “God must be busy, He didn’t hear my prayers.” Ridiculous. Of course He hears our prayers. All of them. All in His time to answer them. Those prayers are not to change Him, they are to change us.

In a week, my mom has not only trying to like her new relocation she even has friends! Her and my dad have been attending this home bible study for some time now, and it is really close to her new location. Many of her sisters and brothers in the Lord have come to visit her and pray for her and give her their phone numbers because they all live so close to her. Amazing! See the way Jesus works! Wow! He amazes me. Everyday. I pray that this encourages you all. We need to let God, be God. In everything in our life.

“Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!” Psalm 150:6

    Praise the Lord indeed! When I think of the prayers I thought were unheard in the past and look at my life now, I am soooooo blessed by the fact that He did hear and answer NO, because He knows what’s best for us. Our God is an awesome God!!!!

    This is so encouraging! I feel the same way you do sometimes… Like God must be too busy with other things to hear me. But He’s really just telling me to wait and that He has something better in store for me πŸ™‚
