When was the last time you asked God to do something impossible, something out of the ordinary? Sometimes the reason we don’t see God do great things is because we only ask Him for small things. Most people pray over their food, pray for protection, or pray for wisdom. I think that’s all good, but I don’t think we should limit what God can do. There should be something you’re praying about, something that you’re asking for that is beyond you. Something that you can’t accomplish in your own strength. Do you dare to ask?
My dreams may look impossible. I don’t always have the resources or the connection to the right people, but I learn today that God is saying, “I dare you to ask Me to bring it to pass. I dare you to ask Me to show you a flood of my favor.”
All through the scripture, we see people doing this. Elijah prayed that it wouldn’t rain, and for three and a half years there was no rain. Joshua prayed for more daylight, and God stopped the sun.
I do realize for quite sometimes that when I have the conversation with God, I often say something that’s so mundane. Routine prayer that I learned since I first discovered about ‘Our Father prayer’. I feel that it’s enough to cover all my worries, my wish, my goal to have a simple happy life. I learn today that I have not been clear. I was in fear to ask Him and tell Him all about my dream. Though He sees through me, I learn today I have to ask, converse, and practice to take that opportunity to lean on Him. I realize that I have been holding myself back. I realize that I’d fear to ask, fear to face my fear to give it power.
We could give ourselves every reason not to do something and most often times we do believe in those reasons. I excused myself from stepping into the wet concrete because I fear to be stuck in the probably overwhelming situations later on. My fear holds me back. My anxiety, my worries, my over-analyzing self may have held me back. I have to remind myself be fearless again, be brave to grow and to face my fear in order to be free from it. By allowing myself to do something about it, say yes to opportunities and take deep breaths when fear wants to take control.
to make a habit of reminding myself to have compassion when I doubt myself and to have faith in people.
