Yesterday, I shared a necessary word about prayer and spiritual warfare. Today, it is a joy to share a very necessary Thank You for praying!
Thank You – Prayers Answered!
Even as I write, I don’t know all the details. But I do know enough to fill in some of the ‘blanks.’ I received a text message this morning letting me know the passport should be in hand by early afternoon. That was very good news. However, with an imminent departure ‘should be in hand‘ left some room for doubt.
Just after lunch I got another text. That one said the passport had been delivered. Better yet, it was in good shape and all the information was correct! Even things like that matter. From time to time something is incorrect. Had that been the case, the trip to the passport office would have been necessary in order to correct a mistake.
The bottom line is, we joined together in prayer for something that was a potential hindrance to the upcoming mission. And today, two things have been confirmed and affirmed for us. First, our Father is more than capable of overcoming any adversity His children face. Second, He answers prayer.
That said, it’s easy to make those connections when our prayers are answered with a divine, Yes! However, those truths remain even if our divine answers are, No!, or, Wait.
So let me thank you again for joining in the battle. Remember, all prayer is spiritual warfare. And the next time you are facing a crisis, don’t forget to take it to the One who can and will address it perfectly. His answer may not be the one you are looking for, but His answer will be the perfect one. Why? Because He is good and cannot be less than good. Every good and perfect gift comes from Him!
