I was reading this morning in Exodus, and was struck by God’s response to Moses praying. Â Left and right and are verses saying “God responded to Moses prayer,” and “God did what Moses asked.” Â This is amazing and yet normal.
Why don’t we expect these kinds of responses from God when we pray? Â Is it because our prayers are selfish and not on behalf of a people? Â Is it because we lack the faith that He will actually answer us? Â Is it because we don’t even take the time to pray?
I wonder what would happen if we met with God, talked with God, expected from God the way that Moses did. Â Perhaps God is waiting to unleash his goodness in the world until we ask, and submit ourselves to be a part of His goodness being made known. Â Who’s in?
I thought that is what we were supposed to do? I am always amazed however when He answers my prayers. Like what did I expect when I pray? Him not to answer.? I love that He listens to me and stuff. I love that He hears us when we call. And I am so glad that He gets me. jenni
