God's Will Be Done

Luke 1:37-38 For with God nothing shall be impossible. And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word.

I wanted to take time this morning to encourage us all to remember those prayers that you have before God. Over the past few weeks I have heard several messages on faith, and standing firm on the response that you receive from God in relation to your requests before him and I am finding that we also have to have the attitude that whatever your will, be it unto me Lord. God's will may or may not be the answer that we are desiring, but we must go into prayer with the conviction in our hearts that we want His answer according to his will, and his word. When we have this attitude we become powerful. We become powerful over the strongholds of doubt, fear, uncertainty, impatience, pride, and last but not least, human reasoning.
We become so powerful that our family will see our prayer, faith,and humility to his will and we can pass this power on to them by precept and example. I remember last week I was not feeling well and my oldest daughter asked to pray for me. I was touched and inspired as she prayed a strong prayer believing that God would be touched by my infirmities. Prayer and belief go hand in hand. It is our most powerful weapon and I continuously ask God to keep my stockpile full.

How is your prayer and belief life? More importantly how is your submission to his will concerning your prayer request? What message are you sending to the little eyes that are watching you as you wait for his answer and the little ears that hear you pray?
Be blessed and Stay encouraged!
