"PRAYER IS FELLOWSHIPPING WITH GOD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

PRAYER IS FELLOWSHIPPING WITH GOD

 

HOW OFTEN DO YOU THANK GOD FOR ALL YOUR BLESSINGS? DO YOU EVER SACRIFICE YOUR TIME FOR HIM AND JUST SIT WITH HIM AND LIFT UP YOUR HANDS AND SING PRAISES TO HIM?  HE DESERVES BOTH THE THANKS AND THE PRAISE, YOU KNOW.  LOOK WHAT IT SAYS IN HEBREWS 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. SOMETIMES I JUST SING TO HIM AND ALTHOUGH I KNOW I SOUND TERRIBLE, I THINK HE LIKES IT AND, I DO IT IF FOR NO OTHER REASON BECAUSE HIS WORD SAYS TO DO IT AND HE WANTS OUR OBEDIENCE.










ONE OTHER QUESTION, DO YOU EVER THANK HIM WHEN HE SAYS NO TO ONE OF YOUR PRAYERS?  WE ALL SHOULD DO THIS JUST AS MUCH AS WE DO WHEN HE SAYS YES TO ONE.  HE KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR US AND WE SHOULD TRUST HIM ENOUGH TO ACCEPT ANYTHING THAT HE SAYS.  OH I KNOW WE ALL WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT WE ALWAYS DO THAT BUT DO WE?   I KNOW I HAVE QUESTIONED HIM BEFORE AND HAD TO ASK HIM TO FORGIVE ME FOR IT.  ACTUALLY IT TELLS US THIS IN 1ST THESSALONIANS 5:19 WHERE IT SAYS "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."  DO YOU SEE THAT..."IN EVERYTHING". AND, DON'T FORGET THAT THIS IS HIS WILL.  AS I SAID BEFORE, HE WANTS OUR OBEDIENCE.



MAKE SOME TIME FOR HIM AND LET HIM KNOW HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT HIM.  I KNOW HE KNOWS EVERYTHING BUT THAT SHOULDN'T STOP US FROM TELLING HIM ANYWAY.  WE, AS PARENTS, KNOW THAT OUR CHILDREN LOVE US AND ARE THANKFUL FOR THE THINGS WE DO FOR THEM BUT DOESN'T IT FEEL GOOD TO HEAR THEM SAY IT.  I KNOW IT DOES ME.  HE LOVES US A LOT MORE THAN WE COULD EVER LOVE OUR CHILDREN AND HE JUST WANTS US TO LOVE HIM BACK.  WE ALSO CAN SHOW HIM BY KEEPING HIS COMMANDMENTS AS HE TELLS US IN JOHN 14:15 "If ye love me, keep my commandments. I CERTAINLY AM GOING TO SHOW THAT TO HIM,  HOW ABOUT YOU? 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
