A Prayer for When You Doubt God’s Work in Your Life
By Christine Perry 

“My Father is all the time at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” John 5:17b NIV

Have you ever ever checked out your life, and it looks like nothing was occurring? You learn your Bible, pray, go to church, and you are not seeing the outcomes you wish to see. Possibly you have come to a spot in your religion the place you doubt that God is even at work. If that is you, I wish to share a real story with you. Lee Stobel, a former atheist and journalist for the Chicago Tribune, got here to Christ after making an attempt to disprove Christianity. After his conversion, he wrote the guide The Case for Christ.

In the future, Lee felt compelled to share the gospel together with his former coworker. He was excited to let his former coworker know the way Jesus had modified his life. He went in full assurance that one thing radical was going to happen. As Lee shared his newfound religion and invited this man to church, his former coworker sat stonewalled. On the finish of the dialog, he not solely did not budge on his atheism, he blatantly refused to go to church. Lee walked out of his former coworker’s workplace utterly baffled. He genuinely believed he was alleged to go and share the gospel and he did not see what he hoped he would see, and but, he actually believed he was doing what the Lord requested. Was this God’s work or was he being led by his personal concepts? 

Have you ever been there? Possibly you stepped out in religion and fell flat in your face. Maybe you probably did what the Lord requested you to do, and the outcomes did not pan out the way in which you thought they’d. You might be questioning should you heard incorrect. You’ve got been praying, and but you’ve gotten heard no reply. I wish to remind you, as I remind myself, that God is all the time at work in you and on the earth — even when we won’t see it. 

The story about Lee is not over. A number of months after Lee had enthusiastically shared his religion together with his former coworker, a person got here as much as him and stated, “You do not know me, however you lead me to Christ.” Lee stood there bewildered by the person’s phrases. The person continued, “I used to be out of labor, and I knew somebody on the Chicago Tribune. Since I’m a handyman by commerce, they employed me to put tile. You got here into the workplace the place I used to be working and shared about Jesus and the way He modified your life. The man you had been talking with did not care to listen to it, however I used to be behind his desk working. I heard each phrase.”

Buddies, you by no means know what the Lord is as much as. He’s all the time at work, even when You’ll be able to’t see it. Do not hand over. Maintain trusting in Him. He’s good, and He does good.

Let’s pray:

Pricey Heavenly Father,
Please forgive us for doubting You. We can’t see the entire image however You’ll be able to. Thank You that You’re all the time at work. Thank You that You neither slumber nor sleep. Thanks that You guard our methods and lead us in paths of righteousness for Your identify sake. Thank You that after we are weak, You’re robust. Thank You that after we fall quick, You’ve got all we’d like. Thank You that You’ll be able to work, even whereas we relaxation. Assist us to be nonetheless and know You as a result of You say to hunt first Your kingdom and Your righteousness, and all these items, our day by day wants, might be added unto us.

Thank You that You see the start to the top. Thank You that You already know what’s the best possible for us. Thank You that You haven’t forgotten us. However I pray that You’d assist us to belief in You and to get busy loving, serving, and caring for these round us. Assist us to consider others higher than ourselves so that we’ll not waste the time You’ve got given us right here on earth. Lord, we love You. Assist us to be extra like You. Assist us to be sluggish to talk, fast to pay attention, and sluggish to grow to be indignant. We’d like Your assist every single day. Thank You for by no means giving up on us. We’re grateful. Amen!
