No More Begging God With Great Worry & Zeal
Having read Hebrews 11 again I am struck by the following:
The things that God has placed into my heart that I am to bring about in my City don’t come by my begging God with great worry and zeal.
Often it takes me a while to get past prayer that is based from whining and the ringing my hands in worry and frustration. When I move past that into a place of rest and trust in His promises to me it is then that my faith moves the heart of God. Without faith it is impossible to please God.
The things He has asked me to do in my City (which are bigger than me) come about because I take Him at His word. I believe Him. For me “believe” means that I plan my life and activities around what He has placed in my heart. I get it. What I ask for in His name by faith is going to come to pass. Plan on it!
Mountain look out you are moving! Everyone in my City will have food and shelter. If they want it.
Jesus will be seen for who He really is. 2 pledges made, 1 in the bank, 797 more to go!
