Blessing Granted

This is taken from the same chapter on the Nobleman at Capernaum.

DA 200  "The nobleman wanted to see the fulfillment of his prayer before he should believe; but he had to accept the word of Jesus that his request was heard and the blessing granted.  This lesson we also have to learn.  Not because we see or feel that God hears us are we to believe.  We are to trust in His promises.  When we come to Him in faith, every petition enters the heart of God.  When we have asked for His blessing, we should believe that we receive it, and thank Him that we have received it.  Than we are to go about our duties, assured that the blessing will be realized when we need it most.  When we have learned to do this, we shall know that our prayers are answered.  God will do for us 'exceeding abundantly,' 'according to the riches of His glory,' and 'the working of His mighty power.;  Eph. 3:20, 16; 1:19.  "

Remember we only need the faith the size of a mustard seed and He will give us the answer when it is most needed.  We are to hang on by faith in Him who healed the sick, raised the dead, stilled the stormy sea and blessed the little children and held them close to His heart. Tomorrow I am going to give you some of the promises that I am learning to trust in.  They are wonderful and they restore our faith as we include them in our prayers.  I believe there is a verse for our every need, so let's explore that tomorrow.  I love to do this and so will you once you get started.  Grandma Joan
