Fresh Hope – 13th December 2017

I do believe that how we see God determines how we approach Him, and that how we approach Him plays a part in what we receive from Him.

I saw a quote recently that read, ‘God is more eager to answer your prayers than you are to pray them.’

I don’t know about you, but when I have a need or a request, I’m pretty eager to see that need met or that request granted.

And there are even times when I can think to myself, maybe without realising it, ‘if only God wanted this as much as I do…’

However, the truth is that if what you’re believing for is God’s will for your life, He wants you to have it far more than you want it for yourself!

He wants to provide for you more than you’re hoping to see the provision. He wants to restore that which is broken more than you’re longing to see restoration… God is eagerly desiring not only to answer your prayers, but exceed your expectations.

I wonder what would happen if we approached God with this view of Him…

I wonder the things we would see happen in and through us if we believed that there is a God in Heaven who is more eager to provide than we are to pray and who desires to do exceedingly and abundantly more than we could ask, think or imagine.

Allow me to encourage you today to approach God with this revelation and believe that He is ready and waiting to do for you that which you cannot do for yourself.
