Hebrews 11:6 (KJV) 6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Philemon 1:6 (KJV) 6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
How many times have you prayed with someone who is crying their heart out to God, begging Him to answer their prayer? It’s such a pitiful sight because God has already provided the answer to every problem we could ever encounter. So what’s wrong?
What’s wrong is that approaching God in that manner is not only futile but really insulting to God. And we for sure don’t want to insult our Heavenly Father. He’s our Source and He has all the solutions that work. And beside all that, it’s faith that pleases God, not crying and begging.
So often it seems that people think that loud praying, yelling and screaming at the devil, and begging God for answers is the way to go. But it isn’t. And even though we can learn by going the hard way, going the right way is always the BEST way. And that way is God’s way.
So, how do we know which way is God’s way for solving our problems? That’s easy—it’s His Word! The Word of God answers every question we could have and gives us solutions that actually work. Who woulda thought!!!
Of course, experience is a teacher but not the BEST teacher. Who wants to go through “hit or miss” to find out how do something? Go to God’s Word first and the Holy Spirit will reveal the solution about what you’re to do. He’s in you and has all the answers.
Another thing is to pray in your prayer language – in tongues. That way you’re praying the perfect answer because praying in tongues is praying the mysteries of God. Then pray for the interpretation and God will show you the solution. Remember, the Holy Spirit is your teacher, counselor, and guide. Yield to Him.
There are so many things that come against us daily but if we have the Philemon 6 attitude we can overcome every obstacle the devil throws at us.
Start acknowledging every good thing that’s in you by virtue of the New Birth and the power of the Holy Spirit and watch your faith soar!
