A *just* God

How many times have you found yourself compromising your prayers? Suggesting to God some alterations to your dreams, because maybe that’s how it’ll become a possibility or reality?

Your prayers take the form of, “Lord, if you can *just* allow this to happen…” or the hopeful, “God *just* give me this…or *just* do that…”

God isn’t a *just* God.

Obviously, “just” has two meanings. God is guided by truth, reason, and justice, and is just, etc.

But God isn’t a one and done kinda God.
God isn’t a lead-you-by-still-waters-just-to-stay-there kind of God.

God has reason and purpose hidden throughout your story.
God isn’t just doing one thing in your life, He is creating a design, and has a plan.

Stop compromising your faith.
Stop praying out of fear or desperation; God is going to do more than *just* get you by.
Believe that there’s more.
Trust  that there’s purpose.
Have more hope.
God can do more than *just* answer your prayers, or make your dreams reality

 

“For this reason I kneel before the Father,  from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name.  I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

Ephesians 3:14-21
