We all have experienced the feeling of going round and round and not getting there (where ever "there" might be). "There" may be praying THRU one thing to find "there" is another.
And we pray ... we muster up new or forgotten faith. But "there" it comes again.
Urggh!!! Could it be we have not figured out what we NEED to be praying for?
I thought.... I know what I Need!!!
BUT.....how does that need get met
I can't possibly be the only one going round and round - crying,, praying,,,trying to get things I possibly don't really need and asking for things i DON'T REALLY need. What a waste of energy going round and round.
........"and Jesus answered and said unto him. What will thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord that I MIGHT RECEIVE MY SIGHT" Mark 10: 51
Here is a man.. SITTING by the roadside as Jesus passed by....and he cried out ( really Loudly) have mercy on me and he threw off his garments, rose up (probably w/ help) made his way to JESUS . and Jesus answered saying ...What wilt thou that I should do unto thee?
The BLIND man said unto him, Lord that I might receive my sight -- Jesus said unto him, Go thy way, thy faith hath made thee whole. And IMMEDIATELY he received his sight and FOLLOWed Jesus on the way. (vs 47, 50-52).
Wow...this man had alot of needs --blind, poor + begger, dependent on others, an outcast; all real needs. But what he really needed was his sight - GETTING "that" ... everything else becomes a possibility..he KNEW "that".
So when Jesus asked him - he knew exactly what to ask for.
Do we know what to ask for - what we really need -- the "that"?
Thankfully, God hears us too and is willing to meet our need
As we tune in to that inward witness, to the quiet knowing, that urging, prompting and leading arising within. YES, Jesus is "there" for us as he was for the man and He will open our eyes and show us what we really need. Asking "that" will lead our prayers.
"ROLL your works upon the Lord - commit and trust them wholly to HIM; (he will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to HIS will and) so shall your plans be established and succeed" Prv 16:3 Amplified
(cast your care) ROLL with the Lord and avoid going round and round and we will thankfully find "that" peace that passes understanding; also.
Happy Thanks - Giving
"In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you"
