"But they took their stand in the middle of the field. They defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the LORD brought about a great victory." 1 Chr. 11:14
I find I waver sometimes (maybe monthly-if you know what I mean:) I have great faith some days when I pray. I have great faith for others' when I pray for them, but the Lord convicted me of not-so-great faith sometimes when I pray. There are some things that I have prayed about for 19 years and I have not seen an answer to. I look at those unchanged things and tend to get...discouraged...frustrated...restless...
I had a dear passionate-for-prayer friend stop in the shop last weekend and I was lamenting about some "unchanged" things and she kept reinforcing; "God will do it..." "God is going to..."
When she left I was so unsettled. I went to prayer about it, and the Lord showed me that I am not praying with faith for those long awaited things. I had begun "losing heart".
So this morining in my one year Bible, God highlighted the above verse. Then He reminded me of Ephesians 6 ...STAND. and when you have done all to STAND, STAND firm then...
It also reminded me of Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
So the Lord has encouraged me to press on in prayer and faith. If you have been experiencing a little of "losing heart", I have attached a very encouraging link at the end of this article.
May we STAND together and take the ground that the Lord has already promised to us.
Lord, Please help me to walk by faith and not by sight. To not grow weary or lose heart, but to keep my eyes on you and your power and faithfulness. Help me remember that with You all things are possible. Forgive my unbelief. In the precious name of my sweet Savior, Jesus. Amen.
