Thought from the Word

January 7, 2019

I Thess 5:17

“Pray without ceasing”


The word “ask” means to request, to plead for, to call for. It is a term of urgency even to the point of demanding. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17 God commands us to ask as part of our prayer life because asking is dependence. This is not a suggestion. There is no alternative to prayer. When we face trial and difficulty beyond our capacity to handle, we should cast ourselves at the feet of God to gain the wisdom we need to face the problem.May we never forget on our best day, that we still need God as desperately as we do on our worst days.Yes we need to depend on God everyday of our life.Are you depending on God or your own strength to fight the battles of life?

If people deem something humanly impossible, they do not believe God will answer their prayers.
