Christian: Hearing and Doing God's Word

Saturday, February 28, 2009

But, like many people, I didn't take God's Word to heart. I heard it and I didn't hear it. I knew it and I didn't know it. Know what I mean? Then, I started watching Christian television. Yeah, I know there is a lot of criticism about "tel-evangelists," but I learned from them, that I must check out whether what they say is true by looking into the scriptures for myself. Wow, what a concept! I would open my Bible and start looking up the scriptures for myself. Then, it happened. The thing that really changed my prayer life forever. The thing that has renewed my faith and made me into practicing Christian; a Jesus advocate. I heard a message about people who pray "amiss." 

Praying amiss means to pray in error; with the wrong motives or intentions. The wrong motives are selfish motives. James 4:3 says, "Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts." Asking amiss means you are asking as though God were Santa Claus. Gimme, gimme, gimme! It's the battle cry of the prayer warrior that prays amiss. People want something that makes them feel better. "The heck with other people, I have my own needs." What I found out is that God will meet your needs whether you ask Him or not. Yet, when you stop being so self-centered, He will begin to answer your prayers in ways you could have never imagined. --Be Blessed and Prosperous!
