Day 12 - Personal Devotional

Day 12

Pray by faith:  Hebrews 11:6;  And without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

No matter how fully loaded our prayers are, no matter how earnest and sincere, if they are not offered in faith with confidence that God is good and will answer them, they are not going to have much effect.  Dependance on God is the key to prayer.  Trusting in God is the foundation of faith.  We can pray and stand on the promises of God with full confidence.  We pray because we are dependant on God.  Humble dependance on God is the way of life for the true believer.  When we humble ourselves before God and pray, he will lift us up, he will hear from heaven and answer!  Let’s pray today for a greater dependance on God that is confident and trusts him.  Faith knows that because God is good, God is faithful, and God loves us, in every circumstance he is working for our good and his glory.
