Do you have a “Suddenly” you are waiting for, that one prayer you believe if answered will bring you that contentment you’ve always wanted?
How long have you been praying for it?
Why do you believe it’s what will bring everything together?
Here’s my next question;
Has God given you a “Suddenly” before? Did you think that answered prayer was going to give you what you needed, and did it? If it did, why are you still looking into the future for it?
Typically when we pray for our own situation to change, it’s because we are discontented and uncomfortable. Rarely do we pray for God to grow us, and give us strength to endure, but rather to alleviate or remove something or someone. So He blessed you with that thing, and now another “thing” has come in and taken over that spot, what now? It is very important to lean into Gods promises, this one hits home when I am disquieted in my spirit: John 16:33 ~
“I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world.”
The lie satan consistently tells us is if we get that “one thing” while on earth, we will be complete. There is nothing here that can fill us completely, only Jesus. We were made in God’s image, and He is the only way to wholeness. Life is a journey, a constant movement, and it will be whatever you decide in your mind it will be. It can be wondrous, with moments of pain, or it can be painful, with moments of peace.
God blessed us with this phenomenon called a brain, its capacity has still not been fully understood or utilized. Yet what we are learning is available to everyone. Why not ask God for wisdom and understanding?
God promises to teach us if we simply ask. Praying for peace despite our circumstances is the greatest “Suddenly” we could receive.
Peace comes when we stay close to Him. He is Peace.
John 14:27 ~
“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
2 Corinthians 9 ~
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things, at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
