Prayer Journal: Day 205

Day 205

And he said, “The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.” – Luke 18:27 KJV

One of the worst words in the English language is “can’t.” With God, all things are possible. There is nothing He is not able to do.

When we find something that is lacking in our lives, it is not because God won’t provide it to us. To some extent, we may be resisting it, even though we want it. The Lord does not withhold good things from His children. He wants the best for us. He sacrificed His only begotten son so that we could live.

The Lord knows our needs even before we come to Him in prayer. His timing is perfect. 

Our web of emotions and memories sometimes prevents us from realizing what God sees is possible for us. He knows our future. He can lead us with unwavering confidence to the path everlasting. 

When we follow Him and surrender our burdens to Him, the weight on our shoulders becomes lighter. Amen.

Prayer Journal: Day 17

Day 17

Pray without ceasing. – 1 Thess. 5:17

There are many things that worry me day and night. Most of them are about resentments from the past that trigger me still in the present.

I pray that God will set me free of them. There will always be things that trigger me, and when that happens, I need to pray.

Prayer isn’t just before every meal and before my daily devotionals. Jesus asks us to pray all of the time.

That’s because all throughout the day and night the devil attacks us. He wants us not to forgive our trespasses. He wants us to stay hateful, resentful, angry, and sinning. He wants us to live a life of fear. Jesus sets us right and gives us peace. We need to quiet the devil’s voice in our thoughts and come to the foot of the cross. 

Surrender all your thoughts to Jesus and He will save you. Amen.
