Dead Mail Room

20 01 2014

Post offices have a room where all non-deliverable and non-returnable mail is stored (or they used to – this may have changed!)

The simple fact is this, if you want your mail to get to the intended recipient, it has to be correctly packaged and addressed.

In the same way, when we pray, we should think of our words as letters being sent to God. The kind of envelope we use is important.

Do we envelope our prayers in faith…or in doubt?

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all men generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

“But let him ask in faith without any doubting for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.

For let not that man expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:5-8

If our prayers are in the envelope of doubt – forget it. It will end up in the “Dead Mail Room.”

When we envelope our petitions in faith, though, stand by!!!

Messenger At The Crossroads

One of my favorite texts. The wisdom in question does not always come easy however. That’s why it says to ask without doubt. It’s how we learn to navigate “over life’s tempestuous sea…”

When homeschooling our sons, one of them was learning geometry. I had to teach the Pythagorean Theorem. I couldn’t even pronounce it! I showed my son this verse, then we asked the Lord for His wisdom. Fifteen minutes later, I taught him what he needed to know! I didn’t have a clue, but he got it!!! God is faithful to His Word, for sure. 🙂

Amen! I always remind myself that we pray from a position of strength, not ours but His strength!
