Blogs!PRAYER’S MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR!
By John Griggs
WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR IN OUR PRAYER LIFE? The Bible gives the answer in Hebrews 11:6 when it says, “BUT WITHOUT “FAITH” IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD; FOR HE THAT COMES TO GOD MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, AND THAT HE IS A REWARDER OF THEM THAT DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM!”
BUT YOU SAY, “WHAT IS ‘FAITH’?” My favorite definition of faith is very simple…it is simply, “TAKING GOD AT HIS WORD.” GOD SAID IT. I BELIEVE IT, AND THAT SETTLES IT! It is simply keeping the mentality of a little child. Jesus said in Matthew 18:3, “EXCEPT YOU BE CONVERTED, AND BECOME AS LITTLE CHILDREN, YOU SHALL NOT ENTER THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!”
Max Lucado took his three year old son for a walk in a new neighborhood. “DO YOU KNOW THE WAY HOME?” Max asked his son. “No”, was his reply. “AREN’T YOU AFRAID?” “No”, his son replied. “WHY NOT” His dad asked? “Because YOU know the way,” his son answered. His son only had to hold to his father’s hand for safety crossing the streets. At home he did not worry about food, clothing, or shelter, for his father would provide! THAT’S THE WAY GOD WANTS US TO LIVE WITH OUR HAND IN THE FATHER’S AS A LITTLE CHILD, FOLLOWING A STEP AT A TIME IN FAITH! ARE YOU DOING THIS? FOLLOW THE FIVE STEPS LISTED BELOW EACH DAY AND EXPERIENCE HIS ANOINTING ON YOUR LIFE THROUGH FAITH!
