Trusting God to be True to His Word

Can you imagine holding onto a prayer request for years? This prayer stays on your heart for day after day, month after month, year after year. No matter what, you just can’t let go of this request. Maybe it’s a prayer for healing. Maybe it’s a prayer for a child. Maybe it’s a prayer for a loved one to come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. Time after time, you approach the throne of God with this desperate prayer.

Thankful that God Answers My Prayers

Isn’t it strange that it’s so easy to pray for miracles when it’s obvious that we have absolutely no control over a situation? 

I prayed. I prayed hard. I prayed for miracles, despite being told that, “there was a chance ____.” And you know what, God worked miracles. He worked miracles that I wasn’t expecting or anticipating. 

Sitting in that hospital and going crazy with worry, there was a showdown taking place. There was a showdown between my trust in God and my worry. It wasn’t unlike another showdown that takes place in the Bible.
