(#PowerandPurpose) Living Purpose With Trouble in Mind

The first thing is to have faith in God.  The second thing is that we can speak in confidence when we pray.  Jesus said that when you ask God for something in your prayers, believe that you receive them and you will have them.  Keep in mind that this isn’t a blank check so to speak since we know that our desires will be affected by the Spirit of God that lives in us.

Why can’t we just believe that God will work it out—not that we just sit back and do nothing though?  Why can’t we just trust God?  What happens such that the baby faith that we had in God is replaced by uncertainty and fear to trust?  Life happens.  Consider what Jesus said about that with regard to the Word of God.

Matthew 13:22 (NKJV) -- {22} Now he who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful.

Life comes in and shows us a picture that is contrary to our faith.  Life shows us how people are suffering and dying and we start to wonder why we should expect not to be a part of that suffering group.  We start to lose faith in God because we are not sure if God will do it for us.  We may believe that He can do anything, but that He may not do it for us.  Again, why not just believe God all the way.  If it turned out bad then at least I was faithful until the end.  Why not do that since we don’t know what tomorrow holds anyway?  Why not pursue tomorrow as if things will work out?
