Praying For Faith

As a Christian in a spiritual battle with evil, I'm often praying for faith building experiences. However, I always leave the what, where and when up to my Eternal Father.

While swimming in the pool one day, I tried to touch the bottom and could not.  Since this was impossible with my hands, I decided to quit swimming and sink down so my feet would touch bottom.

Then the impossible happened.  I did not sink but was lifted up waist high in six feet of water with me only being 5 foot 3 inches.

Then God said, "I will lift you up and never let you sink."  I started laughing and crying from His overpowering love and joy.

What a relationship!  Greater faith is only a prayer away!

Working For God

People ask me what is it like working for God.  I have found this to be like what Apostle Paul said in his letter to the Philippians and not like the prosperous TV evangelists.  

I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether living in plenty or in want, because Christ Jesus gives me strength.  God blesses me with His supernatural love and miracles to make all circumstances an adventure.

Sometimes I am appreciated and sometimes I am abused.  Sometimes I get money and sometimes God says to help them for free.

I receive great joy in being an ambassador for Christ to spread His love, which is only possible through His strength.  Praise the Lord for our access to His supernatural powers, which are only a prayer away.

My Real Father

Ever since I can remember my earthly father has taken his anger out on me.  These experiences have always made me feel afraid and worthless.

However, this changed after meeting my Heavenly Father.  He gave me out-of-this-world unconditional love and for the first time in my life I felt special.

This supernatural support continued when I visited my father and he yelled at me.  As I started to feel worthless again, my Heavenly Father came to me and said, "This is not your father, I am your Father."

With this declaration, He filled me with love, and I was reminded of the perspective I needed for a joyful life.  Our Loving Father is only a prayer away.

Notice Small Miracles

To notice God in our lives we must be aware of the small miracles.  

I left one appointment on time, but unbeknown to me, the person I was going to meet next had texted me to meet her earlier.

When I arrived at my destination in only an unreal short time of 5 minutes and was warmly thanked for meeting her early, I was confused.  I prayed silently for understanding and then proceeded with my day.

Later that evening, I received a text message requesting an earlier appointment.  The mystery was solved and God had coordinated my schedule to make it all work perfectly.

God knows what we need and wants to help us, if we just let Him.  Help is only a prayer away!
