Today when I woke up and read my email, a project I had signed up for was cancelled.
You know how you budget on the money you’ll make, even before you do the work? It was one of those scenarios.
I felt the discouragement begin to set in. You see, I have to raise money for two tickets for my relatives who will be coming to visit in about a month from Africa. The tickets are not cheap. So I don’t have too much time to raise those funds.
Looking at Gods word which is where I get all my answers, I read Philippians 4:6
“Do not be anxious about anything, but by prayer and petition, make your requests known with thanksgiving.”
Reading this scripture made me commit my anxiety to God. I began to feel more relaxed and no longer worried because the financial need was now in God’s hands.
The key word is thanksgiving. I started to thank God for the answered prayer. When you thank God for answered prayer, it means you have total faith and no doubt.
God desires to give you and me great gifts. All we have to do is ask. After asking, give thanks because you know you will get it.
The only time God will deny your request is if it is not the best thing for you at this time. – That’s a topic for another day.
Today, if you have any need you want answered, begin your prayer by thanking God for answering your request.
Try it, it works.
