Eat it Up
- 2015 19 Aug
We are commanded in scripture to take everything to God in prayer. We pray from out heart and sometimes we pray written prayers we have received from a book on prayer. We pray and we wait for God’s answer. There are those times when God has answered us and we don’t receive it because it is not in the package we expected. We need to be open to the Spirit of God and take in and digest what He gives us. We need to participate and make God’s word a part of whom we are. When you have taken in the word and tasted the sweetness, perhaps how you pray will also change. Praying the will of the Father brings His answers. (Psalms 34:8) Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
