When God Doesn't Answer Your Prayer ...

(Source: www.joiecatipon.deviantart.com)
Christianity is not a religion, but more to a relationship with God. And the way to build this relationship, is through praise, worship, quiet time and prayer. The hardest of these would be prayer.

I believe everyone of us had a moment of disappointment with God; when He doesn't answer our prayer. We got angry, frustrated and discouraged.

But hold on, why are we like that? Think about it. It is the relationship with God. Are we only looking at Him as a "genie in the lamp"? The one who will always grant our wishes with a finger-snap. Or are we looking at Him as a maid or slave? Whom we could order around, doing what we wishes. Then we are building the wrong kind of relationship.

We should always look to Him as a Father. Don't come to Him when there is a problem to solve, wishes to fulfill, work to be done. Come to Him with the motive of building a relationship with Him. And it is not an once time act. It must be done continuously.

Sometimes, a prayer can be go unanswered for years. But know this one thing, God know what's the best for us and only prepared the best for us.

... for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him. - Matthew 6 : 8

What I Fear

(Source: www.norcalblogs.com)
What I feared has come upon me; what I dreaded has happened to me. - Job 3 : 25

Fear is something that everyone has faced, ever since we were small. It doesn't matter how old we get, there will be small portion of fear in our lives.

But the fact is this; the more you feared, then more likely it will happen. Why is that so?

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. ... - Proverbs 23 : 7

Surely we know this verse, or heard it somewhere. Our mind is probably the strongest weapon we have, it could either make us or break us. Therefore, we must control what is in our mind. How to do it? Feed our mind with the right information!

Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. Give thanks to God as you ask Him for what you need. - Philippians 4 : 6

Three keys as we learn from the verse above: Do not worry, pray & give thanks to God.

Believe me in one thing; surely God is big enough and more than enough for everything that we need to go through in life.
