365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 47-West Palm Beach, Florida:
When we are in need how to we reach out to our Father in prayer? The Bible teaches us not to go out and boast in public like a hypocrite, but to rather pray in private where no one can see us except God. We are taught to close the door and in private speak to God one on one. Yes, it is important to pray as a family as well. However, we all need to go to our God in a private manner as well. When we go to God in secret, our prayers are answered and the Word of God touches are heart.
There is no competition between our family, friends, or neighbors. There is no reward for most loyal follower of Jesus Christ, because we are all loved the same. Therefore, screaming out about what we are doing wonderful in our journey with God or how great of a person we think that we are is not exactly what God has in mind for us. Having a humble approach with both the blessings that we may be or have received, and when communicating with those around us, makes a lot more sense than trying to stand above everyone else. We are all sinners and no one man or woman is better than another.
Finally, we are also taught to be concise in our prayers and not babble over and over again like a pagan. God listens to our prayers and knows the desires of our hearts before we even speak them. We are all good people for the most part who love Jesus and want to do the work of God on Earth. We just have to channel our thoughts and affix them on the cross that we all must bear. Most days our crosses are overwhelming to carry and we want to throw it down as we walk away. That would be a bad decision, because after every storm comes a rainbow from God. We just have to keep the faith and keep moving forward no matter what storm is approaching. We can do it, because with God all things are possible!
