Sometime reading scriptures, it’s more self-condemnation than heavenly revelation.
You have not because you ask not. (James 4:2) Or maybe I did ask with wrong motives…search me God – You know my heart, see if there is any more ICK in it. (Psalm 139:23)
My prayers are not answered as “I assumed” so something must be wrong with me because nothing is wrong with God.
Have you ever felt any of those things? Or repeating your prayers gets old and it’s not working so you might as well stop and since there are no roses to smell, you might as well pick up a shovel and dig a hole…
It’s time to LOOK UP!!!
In a severe drought…Elijah starts talking rain… es muy loco mi amigo. Yet he prays and prays and keeps looking for what he knows is coming. He keeps looking and trusting and praying. And KNOWING GOD’S CHARACTER and FAITHFULNESS, Elijah doesn’t give up.
You might say, “I’m not Elijah. Well God is still God and He does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17)
So keep yours eyes toward the heavens…He is still there and you really are seated with Christ in heavenly places. (Eph 2:6) Ask Him to show you things from His perspective. He knows what is coming across the horizon.
….I see a cloud, small as a man’s hand…its rising… (1 Kings 18:44)
