I was driving the other day as I ran a few needed errands. Praying as I drove. I prayed about the day. The state of our nation and world. People who are out of work. People who are infected. People who need hope and security.
Then this scripture cane to me.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
He reminded me that I am not suppose to be anxious for anything. I am suppose to be making my requests known with thanksgiving. He hears us when we pray. He is not hard of hearing. He is not complacent. He sees us and hears us.
What if the prayers of your past year are about to be answered. What if you dreams and desires are coming. He is faithful and he is working things out, even in the midst of chaos and disorder in the world, he still lives and revives His children.
As I was giving my requests to God that day, I had the peace that He hears us and He is still working things out in all our lives. He is the God that makes ways in the wilderness and streams in the desert. Trust His process. He didn’t do this to us, but He will make a way out.
