Let God Be God
The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. — Zephaniah 3:17
He will do it! not you.
Prayer is waiting for God, acknowledging our helplessness and relying on His power, calling upon Him for His help, seeking, His counsel.
God wans to be exalted for His mercy. We will exalt Him if we pray and ask for His help. Prayer is the antidote for self-confidence, which opposes God getting the glory by His working for those who wait for Him….God is looking for people who will let Him work for them…. He will not surrender the glory of being the Giver.
Let us look to the Giver, not the gift. Let us give God the glory every time He works on our behalf.
