Worries, Prayers, and God

Even before they call, I will answer: while they are still speaking, I will hear.

For the vision is yet for the appointed time; it testifies about the end and will not lie. Though it delays, wait for it, since it will certainly come and not be late.

Then Jesus replied, "I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does these things in the same way.

-Isaiah 65:24, Habakkuk 2:3, John 5:19


What you are worried about, God was there first and cares more about that, than you do.  He already has been answering that prayer.  So, rather than being in despair and praying desperate prayers, thank him for what he has already done and is doing.  And pray for more of it.

We don't get the idea then give it, give orders to God; but God already has the idea and is implementing it.  We need to be saying, "Lord, help me to see what you are already doing".

Get a vision, a word or an idea from God, and no amount of delay, frustration, or opposition will shake it from you.  Things from heaven are eternal.  In time, you will be transformed to fit the heavenly vision.  Watch and participate with God shaping you towards what he is calling you to.

Pray from the perspective that God is already "on the job", working in your life.  Follow the fruit, follow the blessing and ask for more.  Position yourself, like a flower towards the sun or a sail towards the wind.  Take in what God is doing.  Drink and breathe God's grace in your life.

God calls and calls and calls again.  We choose and choose and choose again.  It is a relationship between two people.  God is a person and his work in your life is personal to you.  He calls you to intimate transformation into the likeness of the Son.
