Hey there BCU Fam!
Typically, you have the option of listening to our podcast, reading the notes or both. For this post, because of the informal format, please tune into the podcast (click on the avatar below), recording and refer to the written post for the highlights. We pray the post blesses and encourages you. If so, please thumbs up AND leave a comment! Thank you and enjoy the post!
This post is inspired by a meme that asked “have you prayed about it as much as you have talked about it?”
James chapter 1 reminds us that we need to count “divers temptations” we go through all joy. What we tend to do in many cases is complain to those who will listen (ask me how I know). 😉
There is nothing wrong with talking to someone to get better (godly) counsel on situations, but we also need to take matters to the Lord in PRAYER.
In fact, we need to take EVERYTHING to the Lord in prayer.
Scripture references (KJV)
Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture (Psalm 100:3).
There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD (Proverbs 21:30).
Who hath directed the Spirit of the LORD, or being his counseller hath taught him? (Isaiah 41:30).
But now, O LORD, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand (Isaiah 64:8).
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).
While we trust God to take care of the situation, He will take care of us. @BCUTweet
