All about my love for the Lord

Father knows best…

on March 17, 2012

“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing.  He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.  And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father.  You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” John 14:12-14

I am learning about prayer and what it really means to ask and receive in His will.  I am learning to be patient as I wait for answers.  I am learning to be silent and still so that His voice is loud and clear.  He wants to lavish me in His love.  He delights in me.  I have to learn and understand that His answers may be contrary to what I think I need, or want.  He answers my prayers according to His will.  I am learning to pray for His will.  I am learning to appreciate that a NO is a blessing, just as much as the YES…or even the MAYBE.  When I pray in His will I feel a sense of protection and comfort.  I feel shrouded in His great and perfect sovereignty.  He knows the plans He has for me…always to give me HOPE.  I rest in His answers. I am fully aware that He truly knows best.

I must be available.  I spend time praying and asking and pleading and seeking.  I get it all out…everything that troubles me or binds me or perplexes me and then I go on my merry way, not always listening to His response.  When I listen; when I am still; when I am patient-I hear His perfect responses.  Sometimes the response is not what I desire, but then I am reminded…He knows best.

I am confident that He will never lead me astray.  That He sets my feet on paths of righteousness.  I know that He is always at my side, guiding and directing my path.  I may veer…but He is so faithful to set me on the right course.
Thank you, Lord that you are always present.  You hear every prayer.  You know every desire of my heart.  You answer my prayers according to Your will.  I am blessed to be directed by your grace and mercy.  Please forgive me when I stray, when I feel that my wisdom is greater than Yours.  You are sovereign.  You are perfect.  You know best.
