Let’s ask God to give us a greater appreciation for His love and a healthier respect for His Word. Let’s invite Him to renew a right spirit within us, especially if we’re already developing a seared conscience. And most importantly, let’s give Him permission to reveal the lies we tell ourselves when we justify our actions.
When our emotions and circumstances scream louder than our faith, when our fears become the ruling power in our trial and we’re at the end of our rope, we find ourselves praying a similar prayer: “Father, help my unbelief! Give me the faith to know that You are all You say You are, and that nothing is impossible for You. Help me to see You right here in my circumstance.”
If our entire being (our hearts, minds and souls) were filled to overflowing with the fullness of God (all that He is), there wouldn’t be room for hatred, fear or temptation. Experiencing God’s love on this level will change us on every level.
Thankfully, God is bigger than any (and all) needs we have. Unlike an ER physician who triages every patient and treats them in order of seriousness, God has the ability to hear and respond to every request we make – all of us, all at the same time.
