Elijah was a human being like us, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain and there was no rain on the land for three years and six months! Then he prayed again, and the sky gave rain and the land sprouted with a harvest.
James 5:17-18 NET
When we read the stories in the Bible, stories of men and women of great faith, we tend to think of those people as spiritual giants. We tend to think of them on a different level than most Believers. Their level of faith seems out of our reach.
But the truth is, they were regular people, just like you and me. They had insecuruties. They doubted some times. They would become depressed too.
But they always turned to God. In their insecurities, doubt, depression, they turned to God for help. They trusted Him and He always came through. He answered their prayers!
The Lord will answer your prayers too!
The Lord will come through for you! In your insecurities, doubt and depression, go to Him. Turn to Him and ask for His help. Believe that He will do it.
When you realize that He really is your only hope, you won’t hesitate to go to Him.
The problem is that prayer seems so useless sometimes. We stop to pray and it feels like we are speaking and talking just to the air.
But you’re not. He is listening. He is moving in your situation. Don’t get discouraged because you don’t see it right away.
Trust Him. You can have your doubts in your situation, but trust Him. He loves you. A good Father wants to give good gifts to His children. He knows exactly what you need and the best way to help you.
Be on the lookout! Because since He knows what is best, He might come at your situation in a different way than you expect. But He will do it!
Thank you for listening and answering the prayers of simple people. Grant me the faith and grace to trust, believe and give it all to You.
