Phil 4:6

Phil 4:6
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Well I am sure that we are all familiar with this verse. The first part of the verse tells us not to worry about anything. But read the second part closely. There is a requirement isn't there? God already knows what we need, that is true, the word tells us so. But He wants us to ask for our needs also.

As a parent, friend, neighbor, wife, whatever, sometimes I see a need and meet it without being asked. I am sure you are the same way. But sometimes I won't help unless they ask. I think God is the same way. He wants to see if we are gonna ask for His help or try to go it alone. He has given us a free will and is a gracious God.

So today I ask that He help me get through the day today. That He would show me what He would have me do today, and give me the strength and energy to do it. And if He plans on me being on the phone, computer, couch, counseling / chatting with people then that I would accept that and obey. I also praise Him for bringing me through the things He has and that He allows me to use the things He taught me in each one of them to help others.

What about you? Will you take your day to God in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving?

This is so true...and I usually don't ask for help, and that's when the problems start.

Thanks for the great reminder!!!
