Have the Faith of God: When You Pray!

 I.  Introduction – Session I – Part 1

In September 2013, after years of waiting for something I “believed” would happen, fell through – again! I am not going to lie to you, I was shaken or should I say very shaken:)! I could not understand “Why?” but I thank God for just wrapping me in His arms, regardless of the fact that I was upset, and let me know He loved me! It amazed me that God still loved me in spite of me being upset; when I thought of how much He loved me, I broke down and begin to cry!! What a loving God!! This incident of God wrapping me in His love reminds me of another incident that happened to me years ago; I was at my lowest point and God reassured me of His love for me!! I felt God’s heart for me as I was going through one of the many abusive moments I have been through. God used my friend to tell me, in such a very compassionate way, that He knew what I was going through but I had to go through it at that time! I did not have a clue at the time why I had to go through it; God just told me I had to go through it! God did not tell me why I had to go through what I went through until 15 years later; He told me I went through the abuse not for myself but to help other abused women – God told me “Heal my women!” Oh, what a loving God we serve!

I repented to God for my behavior; my reaction to the disappointing news. The devil tried to get me to ask God “Why You allowed this when I have been waiting so long?” but thank God the Holy Spirit griped me and caused me to bring that thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ (the Word)! I ask the Holy Spirit to filter my thoughts a lot; not to allow negative thoughts to get through Him no matter what!  Yes, I asked “Why” but I asked God in a way to understand not in an accusatory way and because of this, God gave me the answer to my “Why?” and His answer is the reason I am writing this message.
