Do you have a seemingly impossible situation in your life? I do. And I'd venture to say most of you do, too. When my "impossible" problem first began, I tried everything I could think of to fix it; strategy after strategy failed, and continues to fail. I have learned through this process that God is the ONLY one who can make a difference in this particular situation.
Although I wholly trust God's purpose, plan, and power, it came to my attention that maybe my prayers don't fully reflect that belief. In a video Bible study I watched this weekend, the speaker used Ephesians 3:20 to teach us that God is ABLE. We know it, we say it, we trust it, but do we really believe it? The speaker noted that "If you don't believe God is able, it will alter the way you pray." With this in mind, I wondered if my prayers demonstrated my trust in God's ability.
If you find yourself in rote prayer to God, like myself, I challenge you to infuse your prayers with wishes that are far beyond the "fix." Understand the power of God, and pray with His might in mind!
