Asking God for more

By  |  0 Comments

Good morning Beautiful! If you’re a woman who is asking God for more, know and understand that a process of growing and stretching goes along with your request. To be honest, it doesn’t always feel comfortable. But even in the pain of growth, you can be grateful because you know that the opportunity for growth is here to bring you into more. And, the more grateful you are, the more peace you have. A position of gratefulness is an alignment with God that says, “I know I couldn’t have done it/made it/passed that test without you.

Continual gratefulness clarifies to both you and to God that you are comfortable knowing there are things that only God can handle for you. You KNOW He will carry you through this time because you RECOGNIZE and are grateful for all the other times He did!

God’s instructions to help us remain in a position of gratefulness is in Philippians 4:6-7.

Step 1. Be anxious for nothing: Nothing means nothing – absolutely nothing is supposed to make you anxious, which means: to be worried or uneasy about something, especially something with an unknown outcome. So, don’t be anxious. God knows and has planned your future. Will something TRY to cause you to worry? Yes, regularly! So that’s why we go to the next step…

Step 2. Let your requests be made known to God through prayer and thanksgiving (a.k.a. gratefulness): When you’re tempted to worry, you pray. As SOON as a worrisome thought enters your mind –go pray. Go to God and pray before going to your girlfriends or to your husband/significant other, or your mom. And when you pray, be grateful (see yesterday’s devotion) and lay it ALL out before God. He cares.

Step 3. The peace of God will GUARD your heart AND mind: This is the amazing part! God PROMISES that just for coming to Him and laying it all out before Him, with gratefulness (remember this!) that He will give you peace that will stand and guard your heart and mind – read: your feelings, emotions, and thoughts. What an amazing blessing…this is a promise that you can access at any time!

Let your grateful heart be filled with peace today.
