Last week I thought I had finished dealing with praying for ourselves, but I was wrong. I was thinking about something I had prayed about regarding my husband and I was soooo anxious to see a change.
And you know what?!! This is how I always am. I pray about something and I just can’t seem to wait for some sign that the prayer has been answered. So you know what I do? I take matters in my own hand and try to work things out.
So what have I concluded when I do this?- that I know better than God. Yes I know the conscious thought does not form in my mind, but my actions show that this is what I actually am thinking.
So now when I pray, I also have to pray that I leave it all up to God to work it out as He sees fit, in His own time and way. This is by no means saying that I sit back and throw my hands up in the air and say “Whatever God!” And do nothing! No! This simply means that I allow God to take charge of the situation, that I surrender control to Him and let Him work.
It’s a matter of letting go.
