I recently went through a major disappointment – I had been praying about a certain situation for a long time only to find out something that would seemingly make that happening impossible. But here’s the thing, all along the way, I truly believed I felt God leading me in that direction. (No, I’m not going to tell you what I’m talking about). So what do you do when you feel God leading you one way and don’t understand how it could possibly happen?
“Never stop praying” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
Alright, now go have a good day, that’s your verse of the week.
No, I’m kidding. But seriously, if you truly believe that the Holy Spirit is leading you to do something don’t give up on it. Some things take time. Some things take a hell of a lot of prayer.
Now, I want to unpack that a little bit. I don’t know if this thing is going to happen, but I trust that God is working all things for my good because I love Him (Romans 8:28 NIV). So I trust that if it’s for my good, it will happen.
Sometimes praying is all we can do. And I don’t mean that it should be a last resort. Here’s what I mean:
#1 Sometimes the only thing that we can do for the situation is to pray, because nothing else will help.
#2 Prayer is literally more important than anything else you can say or do, so to rely on prayer and prayer alone is not weak but the strongest thing you can do.
Now go pray and have a good week, y’all,
