There was a drought. There were two farmers. Both were praying for rain. After praying, one of the farmer's went out and began to plow his field. Now which farmer trusted and believed God for the rain? --from "Facing the Giants"
There are some things that we, as a family, have been praying about. We have trusted that God hears, but do our actions show it? Have we been "plowing our field" so we are ready when the answers come?
Are we preparing and ready for the answers? Do we pray in anticipation and expectation of the answer?
Psalm 5:3 (NIV) - "In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
Even this week, we have made a major life decision based on what we believe God is stirring in our hearts and preparing us for.
We don't have all of the answers, but we are moving forward in faith that He will provide them as we need them... one day at a time.
We are aware that the answer may not come in the form or way that we expect it to. But we do believe that He will answer.
Will we have prepared our hearts for His answer... in His time and in His way?
What is it that you are praying for? Are you praying in anticipation and expectation of the answer? Are you putting action behind your faith? Are you "plowing your field" so you are ready when the answer comes?
"Faith is not a sense, nor sight, nor reason, but simply taking God at His word." --Streams in the Desert
Are you..."Preparing for Rain"?
