Food for Thought
What are you Doing?
by Tiffany Key
Have you ever prayed that God would bless you in a certain area of your life? I would step out there to say that at some point, many of us have spent numerous nights on bended knees, asking and seeking the Lord on a specific need, only to get frustrated when it did not come to pass. However, before you give up on God or harden your heart and say that prayer doesn't work, it may help to understand how the process works. Perhaps you should stop and ask yourself, what are you doing?
Psalms 1:3 (NKJV) says, "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper." Let's look at the last part of that scripture, whatever he does shall prosper!
What are you doing to prosper? If you have been praying for a better job, have you put in applications? If you want God to bless you with a home, have you put your finances in order? God blesses what you do, not what you only dream about. So why not make a decision today. Begin to put some action to your prayers and watch God move in your life.
