Get ready to get what you prayed for
There’s a saying that says think about what you pray for, for it may come quicker than you think. But it might not be wrapped up in the exact box that you wanted to be.
Boy, is that ever true, see recently I had been seeing somebody for quite a long time, but it was not going where I wanted it to. I’m really looking for a serious committed relationship, I have been single for too long and I really want someone to share my life with, to build something with, something that would last a lifetime.
This was a good relationship but I knew it wasn’t going there and even though I saw plenty of signs, I kept ignoring them. I had all kinds of excuses for holding on, it was good, I was having fun, I’d wait till I meet the “right one”
Over and over I kept seeing the signs of what God wanted me to do, but I had my own plans. I kept thinking why isn’t my life going where I want it to go? Why aren’t I further along? I am doing the right things, I go to church, I give, I help others, I read the word, I am grateful, I give his name all the praise and honor, so what’s going on?
Yes, I was doing all of that but I wasn’t obedient. I wasn’t listening to what God was telling me, that I needed to walk away from this. No, human me thought I could have my cake and eat it too.
That’s not how this works as I soon realized. There finally became too many signs for me to ignore, they were everywhere, everyday and so I finally listened, but I knew I couldn’t do this on my own, so I prayed and I asked for God to end this.
And just like that, it was over, he gave me the strength to walk away.
Let me tell you, it hurt me to do this, this was not what I wanted, this was and still is hard as hell but this was me being obedient.
Funny, how when you pray for things, how fast they happen. We had already had this “where is this going talk” twice before this, so he knew what I wanted and needed when I walked away. So I just stopped calling him, I stopped texting him, God gave me the strenght to do this. But here’s the devil playing with you, he never called me, he stopped texting me and the human side of me was mad, like wtf? Why ain’t you calling me? I wanted to call and ask him, but didn’t I ask God to remove him? Why would I go knocking on a door God closed for me? It doesn’t matter why he didn’t call, I prayed, God answered, leave it at that.
It’s because we are human, we pray but we want it done it a nice neat box, the way we want it. That’s not how God works I learned, so I left it alone.
As soon as I listened, blessings started coming my way, I got into a master’s class for public speaking for an unbelievable deal, I got money that I never thought I would see again from an ex friend, doors started opening, as quick as that, all of this came to pass. I was obedient and God was doing his part to give me what I wanted, what I needed at this point in my life.
There were many nights that I wanted to call, that I missed him, that my heart hurt. One night in particular I couldn’t sleep thinking of him, I wanted to text him so bad and tell him I missed him but instead I decided to go online to keep my mind busy. A friend of mine was doing a Facebook live video and he said “God spoke to me and told me to do this video, I don’t know who’s going to be up this late to watch it but I’m being obedient and since I’ve been obedient God has open many doors for me” That was my sign, that video was for me, telling me exactly what God needed me to hear and so it gave me strength to do what the God wanted me to do.
This faith walk is not easy there, are things that you’re going to have to do, things you are going to have to give up and things that are going to make you uncomfortable. They are going to make you hurt but you’re going to have to do them if you want to grow spiritually. If you want to have all of God’s blessings, you need to be obedient.
The one thing I’ve learned out of all of this is I need to be obedient, I need to listen no matter what and believe me I’ve gotten plenty of signs since I’ve listened. Plenty of things telling me about obedience…a meme, a video, a friend speaking to me, all saying the same thing…obedience and so I know that is confirmation from God.
I know this is a journey for me and it will get hard, it will hurt and it will be uncomfortable but I must listen, I must be obedient if I am to get all of the blessings that God has for me, I must do something for him, I must listen.
So today my friends ask yourself why aren’t you where you should be in your faith walk, maybe it’s because you’re trying to do it your way, maybe it’s because you’re not being obedient, maybe it’s because your not praying for the help you need but remember when you pray for something be ready to get what you prayed for.
