God knows what you are going through. He knows why you are worried about certain things and will happily step in and help us if we would just humble ourselves first and then come to Him in prayer. I know this since the Lord did just that for me this morning. Last night I prayed that I would be able to figure out a phone issue at a county courthouse and sheriff’s office that I work for. Their phones had been going up and down for over a week and it was a mystery why it was happening. So last night I asked God to give me insight on how to fix it so that all would be good to go the next day. And guess what? As I awoke from my sleep today, God put into my mind the exact way of how to fix the issue at the switch level. He simply told me that I was making things more complicated than it needed and the phones just needed to have constant POE power, so that they could stay on. Anyhow, I was so excited to get this information from heaven and even told my wife and my boss what I needed to do. That God told me to change the switch ports from auto to POE/POE+ and that would fix it. And guess what? It did. Not one phone has gone down since making that change to their switch. You may not understand the tech lingo here, but know that only God could help me in this. He saw my faith and once I allowed Him to step in to help me, He did just that. Therefore, I give Him the glory and praise.
Did you know that God knows how to fix any issue we are facing? He is the best architect, engineer, doctor, and any other type of person on earth. Nobody knows everything about what they are doing at work, but guess what? He does. The Lord knows exactly what needs to happen in order for things to work perfectly. John said, “and hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.” (1 John 3:19-22) Wow! Did you hear that? John confirmed that God is greater than us all and knows everything. Therefore, we are told to ask of Him the answers we need, and we will receive of Him. It doesn’t say you will receive of God without first asking. But remember who God helps, for it isn’t just anybody. As John said, He answers those who keep His commandments and do things that please Him. So if you are not living for God, but for the flesh, His guidance and direction is not for You. But the question is, why not start living for God and do what He says, if you desire His help? He is only one prayer away, but Your heart must be humble first. This means giving up some things in order to live under His good grace. The Lord is our helper, and I am grateful He helps me.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, thank You for giving me wisdom this morning. I woke up and instantly my prayers from the day before was answered. I had asked that You would help me know how to fix the phone issues at the courthouse and sheriff’s office that I work for, and You came through in a big way. You told me exactly what needed to do, in order to fix the phones at the switch level, and I am so grateful. It was like I received a present from heaven the moment I awoke from my sleep. I was so excited and could not help but tell my life and my boss what happened. Thank You, Jesus. I give You glory and praise. I am so lost without You. Only You could come through like You did when I needed answers. You saw my heart and that it is for You. But God, only You could mend a person that was once so wretched into the person I am today. Thank You for hearing my cries that day and the days since. Lord, in my sins I knew that I was unworthy and needed help from above. Therefore, I needed You, Lord, a Savior. Someone who has already paid the price for my sins, that I might be redeemed and be washed through Your blood. Thank You for the cross. Thank You for dying, that I might be freed from my sins. I never could walk in Your commandments before, but Your light is before me now. You have made me different, a new creation, that I might walk out my faith. Thank You, God. I love You more than anything this world offers. You are my greatest helper. Again, thank You for coming through this day and all the other times in the past. I give You glory, my Lord, and my God. I love You. Amen.
