“Show your strength, God, so no one can miss it. We are out singing the good news!” ~King David Source: Psalm 21:13 (The Message)
Is Jesus happy or sad with my prayers? I think Jesus may be sad sometimes. I pray and cry out to God about something I want or feel like I need. I am thinking this happens way too often. It is me, me, me all the way. I don’t think Jesus is amused. This isn’t how Jesus taught me. Jesus teaches me to pray: “Your Kingdom come, your will be done.”
How about some prayers for God to show his strength? How about prayers for God’s Kingdom to come? How about some prayers for God’s will to be done? How about I quit thinking about myself and what I want and line up with what God wants? God is God and God is Great. I must pray for God to show his strength.
That would give me some good news to talk about. When Jesus shows his power, it is all about the good news. Jesus wants me to be talking with others about the amazing things God has done. God is in a good mood. Am I sharing the good news?
