I’m always amazed when my prayers get answered. Not that I didn’t think that could be because I absolutely know God answers prayers, but sometimes the answer comes so quickly!
Last night I was praying for a girlfriend I’ve had a falling out with. I’m not exactly sure what happened, but nevertheless I was praying over her, her family, her marriage, her heart, her career, etc.
After praying for her I switched to making it about God. My whole life. My business, my career, my family, my marriage. All of it is His and because of Him, and with that in mind I want Him to receive all of the honor and the glory.
Any money we every make is His.
Any recognition we ever receive is His.
I also asked that He use me. For the growth of His kingdom. To pursue His people. To make followers of Him.
Today I had the opportunity to meet a girlfriend at the dog park, and guess what topics naturally came into conversation? The Christian nonprofit I volunteer with that I learned about at church. The church where I attend now. How I met my husband.
ALL THINGS THAT BEGIN AND END WITH GOD.
I love how God answered this prayer immediately. You want to be used by God for God and not in a way that benefits you? Ask for that.
