Have you ever stared out of your window into the pitch darkness of the night just thinking and thinking?
Have you ever walked the floors while everyone else is asleep worrying about an unresolved situation?
Have you ever had conversations without a listening audience looking for answers or solutions to your deepest fears?
I would like to think that with maturity comes responsibility, and with responsibility comes accountability, and with accountability one must face tough issues.
Life has a way of leading us down a pathway where there are always more questions than answers.
Restlessness and anxiety takes a toll on us in seasons of distress and grief.
The music fades away. The chatter goes still. No one is dancing on the dancefloor….and the thoughts get louder and louder as if they are on a mission to wake up the sleeping giant next to you.
These are feeble cries of an achy troubled heart that needs the attention of Someone that is greater than you and I.
This is the time when our runaway thoughts should be held hostage smack in the middle of a sentence converting it into a prayer.
Sometimes ‘real prayers’ are not made for human ears…but only for God’s ears.
“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].”
PROVERBS 3:5-6 AMP
There’s a midnight cry that requires an intervention from only God.
Nice religious prayers don’t relieve a broken heart. When faced with a tough situation in the lonely hours of the night, we will be surprised at how many deep painful feelings we had buried deep within us that quickly surfaces to the top as we open our mouth to pray.
Real prayers are not made for human ears….they are for God’s ears only. That when truth meets reality and reality needs a miracle.
“All he has is human strength, but we have the LORD our God, who will help us fight our battles!”
2 Chronicles 32:8 CEB
It’s God’s pleasure to create a way out of our confused mind. There is a Christ for every crisis.
When we are pushed against a wall – let’s not frustrate ourselves by kicking against the wall. The wall isn’t going to come tumbling down because of our frustration or anger. It’s our prayers that will move the hands of God.
God is on our side, we do not need to be afraid of the unknown. It is far more rewarding to talk with God when anxiety takes a hold on our minds than it is to pace the floor, or stare through the window into the darkness, or have a conversation with no listening audience.
There are some prayers that are not made for human ears….they are for God’s ears alone.
Thus says the Lord : “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord .
Sometimes God calms the storm, and sometimes He lets the storm rage and calms His child.
