Thought for Today: They Won’t Know Until God Answers

When you take the time to pray to the Father, worship God in spirit and in truth, and spend time in the word of God, your relationship with God will begin to grow.  

One of the reasons why so many people struggle with their relationship with God is because many try making time for God instead of taking time for God. The world, your flesh, and especially the devil will do everything they can to keep you busy so that you don’t spend quality time with God.  

There is one thing the devil never wanted you to know about God, which is found in Matthew 1:23, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name EMMANUEL, which being interpreted is GOD WITH US.”  

You see, the enemy of your soul wants you to always have the mindset that God has to come to you when you need Him. Can I open the eyes of your understanding? As a child of the most high God, you will always need the Lord. Jesus Christ said it this way “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; FOR WITHOUT ME YE CAN DO NOTHING” John 15:5 

Can I tell you the truth? God does not have to come to you when trouble arises in your life! For the Lord God, Himself, said in Psalm 91:15 that “He (she) shall call upon me, and I (GOD the FATHER) will answer him (her), I (GOD the FATHER) WILL BE WITH HIM (HER) IN TROUBLE; I (GOD the FATHER) WILL DELIVER HIM (HER) AND HONOUR HIM (HER).”  

“Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own” (1 Corinthians 6:19). 

And I have one more for you “That he (God) would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; That Christ may dwell in your heart by faith; that ye being rooted and grounded in love” (Ephesians 3:16). 

What I am trying to tell you is that the fullness of Who God is, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, dwells in you.  Stop trying to make time to pray and begin to take time to pray. Jesus said in Luke 18:1, “Men (women) should always pray and not faint.”  

You can talk to God anywhere, at any time. You don’t have to go into your closet, but you can. You don’t have to bow your head, close your eyes, or put your hands together to talk to God, but you can. The truth of the matter is, you can talk to God right there in the face of your enemy and they will not even know that you are communicating with God until He shows up and answers you.  

Because God dwells in you, you can speak to Him from within. This is what Jesus meant when He said “That thine alms may be in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly” (Matthew 6:4). 

When the world is in your face with all of its mess, talk to God from within; they won’t even know you are talking to the Father until He shows up. When the devil is surrounding you with fear, frustration, confusion, and the things of hell, talk to God from within yourself. The enemy of your soul will not even know that you are praying about the situation until God, Himself, shows up. You can pray from within and God will communicate with you and give you the instructions on what you should do, say, and respond to whatever it is the enemy is throwing your way. And the enemy of your soul won’t even know that you are praying because you are praying from within.  

For it is written, “When Jesus therefore saw her weeping and the Jews also weeping which came with her, HE GROANED IN THE SPIRIT, and was troubled. And said where have ye laid him? They said unto him Lord come see. Jesus wept, then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him! And some of them said Could not this man which opened the eyes of the blind have caused that even this man should not have died? Jesus therefore again GROANING IN HIMSELF, cometh to the grave. It was a cave and a stone lay upon it” (John 11:33-38). 

Take the time to pray from within (meet with, encounter, commune with, and join in with God) about any matter in your life. Those around you won’t even know that you are praying until the Father shows up on your behalf. Take the time, don’t make the time to pray, and watch God show up and show out. 

Be Blessed
