God is real. God is ever-present. Let me tell you a story…
This morning, I wrote out a very specific prayer in my journal. Now, this request had been a thought I’d been rolling around my heart for a while. I had wondered if it was ok to ask. I then wondered if I received it, would I be able to do it with success. Finally, this morning I felt the Spirit fall upon me as I thought of it again and so in an act of bravery, I wrote out my true heart’s desire and requested it.
Right after I completed the writing, I opened my Bible to Psalms and this stared me in the face…
May He give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests. Psalm 20:4-5
Full body chills went over me.
In those 2 short verses, God met every single thing I’d been concerned about in the request. Was it ok to ask? May He give you the desire of your heart. Would I be able to have success in doing it? And make all your plans succeed. Then in an extra blessing, as I read the next part, I could see heaven responding to my victory. We will shout for joy when you are victorious and will life up our banners in the name of our God. And then a final affirmation to wrap it up. May the Lord grant all your requests.
Our God is so good.
Today, I want to encourage you to present your requests and hearts desires to God. He cares for you. We are allowed to boldly come before Him. He enjoys the interaction. I hope that reading about what He did for me today, will give you even more boldness. He loves you as much as He loves me.
Prayer Moment: Thank You God for caring for me. Thank You for never failing to meet me right where I am. I love You. You are so good. Help me to walk boldly in Your promises and not hold back my heart from being honest with You. I adore You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in Him. For Who is God besides the Lord? And Who is the Rock except our God? It is God Who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; He enables me to stand on the heights. Psalm 18:30-33
