The Call To Prayer; Having A Blank Check (Jeremiah 33:3)Tommy Boring, March 3, 2019
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Now if God is going to command us to pray then He will answer us. He will do His part. We need to be reminded by God. How do we know that God will answer our prayer?
One, because He said He would. Now we like to pick and choose what we want from the Bible. But the Bible plainly states that He answers prayer.
Number two, the nature of God, He is love. Now consider the nature of your prayer. When we meet certain conditions and God is love and mercy, would He not answer us? Now if God heard your prayer when you were a sinner asking for salvation, how much more would He hear you if your one of His, saved?
Can God fail? Can God lie?
Third, thinking about the times that He’s already answered the prayers. He has proven Himself faithful over and over time and again.
Now God doesn’t go against His will. Everything that He answers it’s always for our better good. Now the answers may not be what we think it should have been. At times He may want us to wait some and grow patience. God is saying that anything is possible but it’s not our job to fill in the blank check. We must be careful with what we ask God. Don’t limit God on what we ask. He goes far and above our understandings so we shouldn’t limit Him. Romans 8:28; if you’re born again then all things work towards you in the good. Now it may not look good at the time but we don’t know what’s best, only God does.
God also does things that we can’t comprehend. At this moment our country seems to be falling apart at its seams. How many of us know what to do, how to fix it? Only God knows how to turn it around, we don’t. God is all knowing and always goes further than what we’ve asked.
Prayer produces truth. Truth comes thru prayer. How many times have you read your bible and not gotten anything out of it? Try praying before you dig into His word and ask Him to feed you.
True prayer grows us spiritually deeper to God. Jesus prayed all night on the mount because He needed to pick twelve disciples.
Prayer delivers deliverance. Great deliverance often requires great prayer.
Prayer also causes great service. We have got to pray in order to know what we need to do. It’s not the preachers job to bare your burden. He is more than happy to help pray for something but it’s your job as well. To be a great servant requires frequent prayer.
If you’re born again then this means that you prayed for Him to save you. We must commit ourselves to prayer. Romans 8:32
