Praying to “SEE”?

Standard

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d4b/60790396/files/2014/12/img_3701.jpgWe often pray for answers or a sign about what we should do in certain situations and then we stall for lack of certainty; stuck hopelessly in “what ifs” that may lead to bad outcomes. We cannot see the future with confidence, therefore we hesitate and doubt our decisions.

Faith is believing in Him before we can “SEE”.

Someone once described faith to me as standing between the two glass panels of life; one clear glass panel behind you and one opaque panel in front of you.

While we can clearly see behind us, the panel will not allow us to go back to where we were. Therefore, our Lord does not want us to spend fruitless energy looking backwards. We must learn from what we see behind us and we must leave it there and move forward.

He also does not want us frozen in our current situation because we fear what we can’t yet see in front of us. We do not know what lurks on the other side of the opaque panel. But we are not meant to see the future; only God knows the future.

Maybe we are praying for the wrong thing when we pray to “see”. Perhaps our prayer simply needs to be an invitation? He longs for us to invite Him into our situations. And then He wants us to trust Him and take steps forward in confident faith that He is with us at all times.

When you invite God into your situation, He will not forsake you. He will prosper you.

Faith:
Invite Him in.
Trust Him.
Confidently move forward.
Then see His good works.

Matthew 9:29
Thereupon, he touched their eyes, and said, Your faith shall not be disappointed.
