I asked for strength
Stop giving title to your problem
Then as he talked with them, there was the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name coming up from the armies of the Philistines and he spoke according to the same words. So David heard them – 1 Samuel 17 : 23.
This man’s name was Goliath by name but king Saul and his group called him champion. As you pray against any trials, don’t magnify the name of that trial because the Almighty God is greater than any trial. As you pray for any situation, bring down the size of that problem. The problem is already afraid of you and is only there for a short time.Magnify the name of God.
Many times when we pray, we expect God to do the Spiritual and the physical. Yes, He can do it but what He expect from us is to have faith as small as the mustard seed which will now encourage you to take a corresponding action.
For example, when you pray for a job, do you go out to look for job? Or you keep on waiting for God to come and move your leg so that you can now know that your prayer has been answered.
After the children of Israelite left Egypt and after the crossing of the Red Sea, they complained against Moses and Aaron why they brought them out from the land of Egypt to come and kill them in the wilderness with hunger? The bible said that God heard their complain and told Moses and Aaron that He will rain down bread from heaven and the people will go out and gather a certain quota – Exodus 16 : 4.
God is the Almighty, He can make the bread to come into their rooms but He want them to go out and contribute their own portion. He did not say Moses and Aaron should bring it for them but He said that the Israelite should go out and gather.
For your prayer to have result, take a corresponding action.
When you pray, do you focus on how Big God is or how great and mighty is your problem? Remember, ”Without faith, it is impossible to please God” – Hebrews 11 : 6.
For God to answer your prayers, your level of faith has to be very high
Jealousy can make God not to answer prayer
For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there – James 3 : 16.
When you are carry the seed of jealousy within you and you seek God’s face, He will never answer you because He is not a God of confusion, insecurity, weakness and obsession. For you to receive an answer to your prayers, you must remove every seed of jealousy from your mind.
