Lately, I have been led to pray even more as I learnt that prayer does wet one’s appetite for God’s presence and will in one’s life.
One’s spiritual hunger will always lead him/her to a prayerful life.
There must be more than this
For some time, I’ve realised that I have been hitting a plateau with my walk with God. This has caused a deep dissatisfaction within me.
“There must be more than this!”
“There must be more of God that I have yet experienced!”
“Teach me Lord how I can really live my faith and life with more of Your power whether it is in my workplace; in my bedroom; in church; with my friends or family!”
I know for a certain that there just have to more than this cos my God is a BIG God.
Pray, pray and PRAY
I am learning more how prayer is the “secret” of drawing near to God. Without God, I inevitably limit myself as I depend on my own strength without tapping on His supernatural resources.
Having a vision alone is not enough, we need passion to see it to fulfillment. And prayer is the key to sustaining that passion.
Prayer also helps me to be sure and clear of the path that I am threading as I hear His voice providing me direction and encouragement.
I need God
Albeit this period of uncertainty and barrenness, this has somehow dug deeper a spiritual hunger for more of Him. So I know this phase is good and I am earnestly praying and trudging towards where He is leading me step by step.
As quoted from a preacher, “Our spiritual appetite is vital in determining whether or not we turn out as a man of destiny or a man with a mediocre life.”
And I am determine to live out His destiny for my life for His redemptive purpose.
One thought on “Discovering More of His Destiny”
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
“This, then, is how you should pray:
” ‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from the evil one.’ For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
