prayer request

Post by suzette999 on Sun Jan 23, 2011 12:14 am

I have never heard God's voice and am not sure he even exists. I know others that say they have received messages and guidance. Never has this happened to me and God has never been there when I needed him. Do you have to be a person with special talents to be recognized by God. I am an ordinary person with ordinary intelligence. With the exception of one or two people, anyone I have ever known that proclaims to be a 'Christian' has been a backstabbing, self-serving fake who uses it to make other believe they are sincere Godly people and more often than not get everything they need and/or want. I am confused. Maybe they are lying about hearing God's voice too... who knows. Please pray for my understanding of this. thank you,

Well Suzette...first of all WELCOME to the site!!!! flower

Secondly I want to say that there must be something inside of you that believes God exists because you are asking for prayer. I love that and I just wanted you to know that GOD DOES EXIST! He loves you tremendously. God isn't into status, position or popularity...He's looking for people who have a heart towards Him. So to answer your question, no, God isn't looking for a person with special talents...He's look for a heart and a person who is yielded and who will give Him permission to do some magnificent things in their lives for HIS GLORY!

Please do not allow peoples actions (Christians) to define who God is to you. Remember, people are people and we all have faults and shortcomings, yet it doesn't separate us for God's Love (Romans 8). Right now, the enemy has you comparing yourselves with others and that's not a good place to be in because he will ALWAYS blow up and distort their situation over yours to make you think that God is doing more for them than for you.

I have asked for guidance so many times and you know what? He's never answered me the same way twice. I think our downfall as humans is that we are looking for the answer in a way that we want the answer and God is trying to get us to yield and let him reveal it to us HIS WAY. If we are NOT in His word (The Bible), many times he will put the answer there. The Bible says in Psalm 119 that His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. SOmetimes he will use preachers to say something that will direct us in the way we need to go or other times he will just speak so tenderly to our hearts. There are a plethora of ways that God directs and guides us...sometimes its through our desires. When this happens, it's always good for you to ask God to confirm it before you step out...to make sure that the desire comes from Him.

My encouragment to you is this...God loves you and he hasn't forgotten you and his ears are NOT dull to your prayers. God knows what you are going to say before you say it. I would say for you to relax and let God RE-define who He is to you. Ask Him to do it and just wait for Him to do it in HIS way. He will do it in a way that ONLY Suzette can understand because He knows where you are sweetheart...he really does. What He's looking for is RELATIONSHIP...a love affair with YOU and only YOU!!! Your relationship with Him will be designed especially for the two of you so let him reveal that to you.

I'm praying with you that...the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power. (Ephesians 1:17-19)

Blessings and Peace to you

Thank you Cholette, you have said more that makes sense to me than anyone in years. Thank you so much for answering. I know I'll re-read this many times for help. Thank you for the site too.

Strangely enough, I work in a Christian School. I have so many stories that make one wonder if God is really working in the lives of the good, kind and truthful - seems the opposite in our school. There have been death of children, loss of money, position, demotions, disrespect, on and on. Then the ones that are obviously self-serving and fake are rewarded. Parents are even starting to notice. oh well, guess this is God's way?

Anyway, Please pray for my personal and financial situation ->this is not related to work. Work is where I have started to question God because of things that have happened to people there over the last ten years.

Your picture is beautiful - Makes me happy and comforts me that someone so beautiful is "works for God" in a way. Thank you again.

Suzette

Suzette, Welcome!! I believe that Cholette said everything so correctly and so beautiful that I really don't now where I could add my two cents laugh but I just wanted to let you know that God loves you very much, and NO the way these wrong people are getting the rewards is not the way God works, because God only rewards the righteous and just. I worked in a place where I was being verbally abused and way under paid, I left that Job and filed a complaint with the government, and they have yet to follow up with me, So I took my complaint to the Highest power and in HIS word He told me this verse which I practically say every day and I stand in faith and believe in the promises of God. It's in Proverbs 13:22,...the wealth of the wicked is laid up for the just... and here are some other verses you might want to look at Psalms 10:12-18, and Isiah 48:22. I hope that these help and bless you! I will keep you in Prayer and Please keep writing and posting! Never give up on God because He never fails!
