Sometimes we get so caught up with our circumstances and the comments from our loved ones that we forget to activate our faith everyday. When, I say comments from our loved ones, I am just being polite, what I really mean are devastating harsh criticisms in which you are called unprintable names. This is one of those times when you have to ask God to fight for you by activating your faith.
By the way, hope you had a happy Father’s day.This is for all those fathers out there,trying their best everyday to become better at accomplishing their purpose in life. Asking God to fight for you is surely one way to to do this. However, God wants to help us everyday. He wants to help us win the battles that make up our daily lives, no matter what life throws at us. This is why we have activate our faith everyday.
Yesterday, while I was struggling to find my way after getting lost on the road, I decided to activate my faith.I told God I was driving round in circles and my GPS and back up driving directions had failed me. I told Him, I needed his own directions. Well, it helped a lot, because God directed me to a gas station, where I met someone who gave me, clear and easy directions that helped me get home.I was thankful to God that instead of sitting there blaming myself, blaming others and blaming the world, that I had humbly turned to God and sincerely opened my heart to Him, telling Him about my situation and asking to help.
This is essentially what it takes to effectively, ask God to fight for us everyday. We have to be sincere with God. We have to go to Him honestly. We cannot try to hide our weaknesses and our problems from God, when we go to Him. We also have to prepared to do what He asks to do. Remember how Jesus prayed at Gethsemane, and ended up saying let your will be done to God. We too have to learn to fervently ask God to help us win in our daily battles, while acknowledging the supremacy of his will for us.Amen.
One other, I may add is that it is better to activate your faith early and ask God to help you throughout the day.Do this at the beginning of the day, and during the sections that make your day,rather than to only when you are in trouble. This is an important part of praying to win. Even when things appear to be bleak, tell God, to help see you through. We sometimes concentrate so much on the commandments and the consequences of sin that we forget that God wants to be happy. Yes! God wants to be happy while doing His will. Let us joyfully ask Him to help us by activating our faith everyday.
