Prayer requires obedience. If we are conversing with God, but not obeying Him, then we are not truly surrendering to him. I have been so misunderstood at times when
I relay an assignment to some, that God has given me for them. I am only being obedient to God from what I know he said; but we must grow in Grace.
Until we decide to follow His leading, we have not given him His rightful position as God and Lord of our lives. We purposely or inadvertently draw lines in the sands of our lives that put limitations on God; even when our time with him is so sweet , so tender, we somtimes tell God “no don’t go any further,” then our communication becomes controlled, and the relationship stifled.
Have you drawn some lines that God is trying to erase? Are there areas in your life that are blocked off to His touch?
Let your prayer time be a “surrender time” with God. We cant afford to limit God in our lives or anyone else’s life— we need Him too much!
In the crunch times, say with Jesus “….yet not my will, but Yours be done.” Luke 22:42.
Because of Christ,
Evangelist Rachel Thomas
