I haven't done a "Love, Tuesday" post in a while so here goes...
This verse in Mark 11 really reminded me about something and I wanted to share it with you.
The back story is about prayer. I have been praying for someone for a while and I'm not going to share who or what I was praying for. But there were two very specific prayers that I have been praying for months for this person. Over the last couple weeks they were answered...but I didn't even REALIZE it! How is that? I found out these prayers were answered but it didn't hit me until yesterday. I was praying and the Lord just reminded me that HE HAD answered BOTH prayers I've been praying for! One was answered after about 7 months and the other was answered in a couple months. The first was answered JUST exactly the way I had prayed for and the other one the Lord used someone else who wouldn't have had a CLUE I was praying this prayer and the awesome part... they said almost EXACTLY word for word what I would have wanted to say to this person!
It blew my mind... and it made me cry rivers too!
The Lord is SO FAITHFUL! Sometimes in the crazy, busy life we live we may have not forgotten to pray about things, but we may have forgotten to THANK the Lord for ANSWERED PRAYERS! I was so blown away by this... I am in AWE of how the Lord words everything in HIS TIMING and in HIS WAYS.
So TRUST the Lord and have FAITH that HE will answer those prayers.
He may not answer them in YOUR timing... He may not answer them how you think He will... But He answers them in HIS PERFECT WAY.
Hugs to all,
Mark 11:22-24 22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received[a] it, and it will be yours.
