In Philippians 4:6, Paul tells us that we shouldn’t be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
There have been so many things in life that I wanted. One, is that I always want to see what I am capable of physically, mentally, and spiritually. I want to see the amazing person that I am capable of being, show up and perform everyday! In order to do this— I PRAY! That’s right! I ask God to help me with my self-esteem, confidence, and determination. I pray for physical, mental, and spiritual strength to make it through everyday. In my career as a pastor and mental health clinician, I am always seeking for ways to be an encouragement to my congregants and clients. One of the greatest ways to do this is to ensure that I am firing on all pistons at all times. Could you imagine what Jesus’ ministry would have been like if He didn’t have a prayer life? If you remember, Jesus would retreat to a place by Himself daily and pray. His ministry was incredible at that time, still is, and He says that we should be even more incredible! (John 14:12) This is what ought to be our daily behavior. On a daily basis, in order to achieve the great things God has set in place for us to achieve, we must ask Him for the ability to do it with thanksgiving in our hearts.
What has He set for you to do? What Godly desire is living inside of you? For me it is to be a faithful husband, father, pastor, and trustworthy mental health practitioner. What is it that you want? Whatever it is-- pray about it, ask God to empower you, then take action to do it!
It’s the first month of 2019! DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME! START PRAYING AND GET IT!
