I’m so ecstatic right now… God is so awesome!
Never underestimate the power of prayer! God wants to know the desires of your heart.
Philippians 4:6 (NIV)
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
I like to ‘Go Big or Go Home;’ I pray hard for miraculous things to happen and for all the glory to go to God. It is hard, to say the least, when you pray really hard and whatever you were praying for doesn’t happen the way you wanted it to, especially when it’s a request for healing. I find comfort in Romans 8:28 (NIV): And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. It doesn’t mean that everything is going to be roses and sunshine, but it means that you can trust that even when the answer is No, or things don’t go as YOU planned, He has a greater plan and that there is a purpose for everything.
But today, there was an answer to prayer that was a YES! And that is why I am ecstatic and so full of joy that I have to share it with you! I have been praying for a couple weeks now, for healing for my friend’s mother, and someone who is also dear to me as well. I requested her permission to share this with you. She was having some issues, and then a lump was discovered in her neck area that needed a biopsy. The biopsy was scheduled for today; I told my friend from the time she told me of this lump, a couple weeks ago, that I was going to pray that it would be completely healed and gone and that there would be nothing there to biopsy when the time came. Well, I received a message this morning that read: “Nothing there to biopsy this morning!! God is good! Thank you for praying!!!!” I got chills and my eyes filled with tears of joy! I was and am still so excited for this answer to prayer! God IS so good!
So please, never under estimate the power of prayer! Talk to God! He wants to hear from you and know the desires of your heart! Not all the answers will be what you wanted or hoped for, but we can rest assured that He knows what is best! We are certainly praising Him today for this answer to prayer! Amen!
