When God answers your prayer! But not how you thought.

Man, I was so mad  the other day I told God on a few people. Then I prayed and was asking him if he could provide clarity for me, show me if I was operating in the spirit of discernment or was the devil attacking me.  I needed help, this was really bothering me!

“Free me from my troubles. Help me solve my problems.”‭‭Psalms‬ ‭25:17‬ ‭ERV‬‬ http://bible.com/406/psa.25.17.erv

Y’all know our Heavenly Father is much like our own loving earthly father? He listens to us, provides for us and often laughs at our expense. That is just what God did to me, he laughed. I was thinking I was right in my thinking and then this;

“The Scriptures say, ‘I don’t want animal sacrifices; I want you to show kindness to people.’ You don’t really know what that means. If you understood it, you would not judge those who have done nothing wrong.”‭‭Matthew‬ ‭12:7‬ ‭ERV‬‬.                        http://bible.com/406/mat.12.7.erv

A gentle reminder that I was acting like the people I was mad at. They may get to the point differently , they may never get the same thing I did from a scripture but I don’t know what God is doing in their life, I don’t know 🤷🏽‍♀️ the plan, I only know my part. 

“I decided to study and to use my wisdom to learn about everything that is done in this life. I learned that it is a very hard thing that God has given us to do.”‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1:13‬ ‭ERV‬‬ http://bible.com/406/ecc.1.13.erv

“If something is crooked, you cannot say it is straight. And if something is missing, you cannot say it is there.”‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1:15‬ ‭ERV‬‬ http://bible.com/406/ecc.1.15.erv

“Keep on telling everyone these truths. And warn them before God not to argue about words. Such arguments don’t help anyone, and they ruin those who listen to them. Do your best to be the kind of person God will accept, and give yourself to him. Be a worker who has no reason to be ashamed of his work, one who applies the true teaching in the right way.”‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭2:14-15‬ ‭ERV‬‬                                  http://bible.com/406/2ti.2.14-15.erv

And that my friend is the answer to my fervent prayer.

  1. I pray that I walk this way daily, Loving, not in Judgment. It is ongoing and I am still a” work in progress! “
