Point to Ponder 234

Dear Brothers and sisters in Christ.  I have learned through my experiences that prayer is effectual in every situation.  We all need to be connected with our Lord always.  There are so many needs.  Let's storm the throne of grace confident that our Lord hears and answers.  Bob

STORMING THE THRONE OF GRACE

Dare we demand a specific blessing of God?   A lady requested I pray that she’d obtain the bulk of the family’s inheritance. An inheritance is a temporal matter belonging to God’s discretion. But what can we demand of God?

Here’s the secret:  “This is the assurance we have in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.” 1 Jn. 5:14.  What then is God’s will?  God will have us obey His commandments.  Finding this impossible for men, God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to be the sacrificial Lamb of God to take away our sins.  Thus, “God…wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”  1 Tim 2:3. 

When a loved one strays from the faith, storm God’s throne of grace demanding that His will be done.  Hold God to His Word.  This pleases Him because you are doing His will. 

Prayer is communicating with our omnipotent God with whom all things are possible.
