Just Asking. . .

I John 4:16 We have come to know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.

via 1 John 4 NASB – Testing the Spirits – Beloved, do not – Bible Gateway.

I wonder what this day would be like if you and I believed – I mean REALLY believed that GOD, THE GOD of this Universe LOVES us – I mean REALLY loves us.

What would REALLY believing that do for our respect for ourselves and others?

What would it do for our words when someone cuts us off in traffic?

What would it do for us when the pantry is as low as the checking account?

What would it do for us when her fever is 104 degrees and the doctors don’t know why?

What would it do for us when he is a cheater and seems to be getting by with it?

What would it do for us when she lies and yet gets the promotion and we don’t?

And the ‘what would it do-s’ could go on and on.  You have a few in mind yourself, don’t you?

So why don’t we believe more?

What would it take for us to believe more?

And will we do what it takes?

Just asking.  Who’s answering?

I’m asking ABBA. Asking and believing that You, HOLY SPIRIT, are speaking this morning and You are enabling every seeking, honest heart to believe. To believe more deeply Your love for us. And in that believing we will be changed; that hope and faith, love and compassion will grow in us and in the growing of these things Your Joy will abound in us; for our own well-being and that of others and Your Kingdom, ABBA.  We would not forget You have invited, even commanded us to bring our sick and afflicted for prayer, asking You, LORD JESUS, to heal them and restore them. And as many times before the rebellious and oblivious we bring, trusting You to pursue them until they surrender to Your LORDSHIP.  I pray for Israel, for Her peace and the subduing of all her enemies, for Her protection and well-being, for strategic wisdom, all that is needed for Her to have the peace and provisions that You have promised. And I pray for America. ABBA, please save this Nation. Surely there are 10 righteous that You will spare and save America for Your Name Sake. 

We have the God-given Right to do right in this wrong World,
Praying (PFT)!
