PRAY ABOUT IT

on December 20, 2016

Have you prayed for something and it seem as if God ignored you? Maybe you’ve prayed and the answer wasn’t exactly what you expected. Perhaps you prayed and gave God a timeline for “your” plan.  Have you made a vast decision and when you saw the outcome you thought, “I should’ve prayed about that?”

That’s something I often heard my Grandmother say. I didn’t understand, however, I did question her about, “Pray about it!” People would ask her to do things and her response would be, “Let me pray about it, first!” Then there would be times when she’d encourage others to “Pray about it.” What I learned is that she acknowledged that she wasn’t in control. She knew to seek the Sovereign one, then He could manifest in due season. She knew how to wait on Him and work for Him at the same time.

I can vividly recall a time that I was told to pray at church, at a very young age. I was volunteered by my grandmother, so there was no room to say, “No.” There wasn’t an option, but I do recall saying, “I don’t know what to say.” She said, “Go” and He would give me the words to say. I can’t recall verbatim the prayer on that Sunday, however, I recall praying.

Often times, God is telling us to just “Go” and instead of moving, we begin to think too much in complacency. We began to talk ourselves out of what it is that He’s trying to call us into.  Instead of trusting, we become timid, which causes insult to His power. We want Him to call, but without a challenge, because we’re often confined to a complacent place negating change. Imagine the ways that could be may out of obedience, simply by trusting Him. Today, I’d like to encourage someone to just GO. It was obvious that my grandmother knew I could do it, but I had to move in order for Him to use me.

Get out of your way, so that He can make a way! His will is going to outweigh your way. Pray about it! After prayer, be proactive, persevere in the midst of pain. Know that it’s in your wait He’ll give patience and prove His POWER with endless POSSIBILITIES.

Just PRAY ABOUT IT! Can you? Will you go? What are you going to change?

This message was inspired by one of the many impressions from my grandmother, the late, Emma L. Sims. She is the reason, I inspire (iinspire and iCfavor). Today, I’d like to send a Happy Birthday to heaven. I thank God for sharing her spirit that has allowed me to touch the lives of others.
