Folks, bear with me if I repeat a comment from an earlier Conquest article.
I may write 50 articles in a month’s time, but will only use four or five of them in a month’s span of my weekly
airings. Meanwhile, pray that I choose those that will be most helpful to the most viewers.
that said, I’ve talked to you about how Christ hears everything we say and do, and when we make even the smallest request,
He hears and considers. Remember my telling you how I looked high and low for an item and finally asked Him to show me where
it was? And at 2 a.m., he woke me and said, "look behind the chair next to your bed?" I got up and it was there.
Where was my mind when I surely must have looked there earlier?
The most recent
occasion that I’ve seen this in its truest form was while listening to a minister on TV, and he started to quote a bible
verse that applied, and he paused. He couldn’t remember where the verse was in the Bible. And he said, "Help me,
Jesus," and it came to him. I have to tell you that it brings tears to my eyes, even as I tell you about it here, so
please excuse me for a moment…
Now. That doesn’t mean that He’ll
show you in every case. He doesn’t do a magician act to please every whim. Look back in the second paragraph; "He
hears and considers." There are frivolous moments and there are sensible requests. I doubt that Christ spends much time
on the guy who mutters, "Where the ---- did I put that chewing gum."
suggestion is that we handle life with a Christian attitude. It seems that I can find a parallel in about every subject that
comes along, and The Lord probably finds that acceptable.
And when all is said
and done, you’re much better off, asking, then just going ahead and thanking Him, and let Him take it from there. The
effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availed much" (James 5:16).
