About a month ago I prayed that God would help me put my trust in Him and not in my money. Before working for Lifechurch.tv, I had a part time job at a reputable oil and gas company. Though it was part time, I had full time pay and benefits. I accumulated quite a savings.
I didn’t realize God would answer in such an obvious way. I mean, when I prayed that prayer, I was thinking he would just magically make me trust in Him instead of my bank account. I didn’t know He was going to depleat me!
Since praying that prayer and having it reiterated through the Lifechurch.tv series, I have:
- had to replace the transmision in my car = $2300
- have to have an oral proceedure done by a specialist who isn’t covered by my insurance = who knows?
- hit a curb and bent the frame work of my car taking me to a specialist who works on car frames = who knows?
Those are just the major issues. I didn’t mention I lost my debit card and became overdrawn in my checking account.
The lesson? Be careful what you pray for, you just might get it!
But honestly? I’m not even worried. Actually, I’m elated! I get the chance to trust God to provide financially! Something I’ve never had to worry about before! I’m not even going to ask you to pray for me (even though you can if you feel so lead) because I know that God is taking care of me.
The sweetness of my trust in Him is changing my life.
What crazy prayers have you prayed recently? Is He answering them? Are the answers what you expected?
In what area are you having to trust God more?
