As soon as I pray, you answer me;
you encourage me by giving me strength.
Because so many times when I come to the Lord in prayer, the answers that I so deeply desire are not truly the ones I need or that God can even give.
For example, stress in my life may not be taken away until I have completed certain tasks. Seeing Nick again will not happen until the day I enter Heaven. Seeing a friend or family member come to know Jesus as their personal Savior may still take more time and prayer.
But God does promise this:
AS SOON AS I PRAY, HE WILL ENCOURAGE ME!
Truthfully, that’s all I really need most the time.
Just a little encouragement to keep on keeping on!
Thank you, Lord, for this short but sweet and powerful verse that I read yesterday in my quiet time.
You know just what I need when I need it!
Praying that all of you will be encouraged today,
