Haanel challenged me this week. Stating that there was a law to prayer sent me into research mode.
Haanel 21: Intro…”The answer to prayer is therefore
subject to law, and this law is definite, exact and scientific, just as are the laws
governing gravitation and electricity.”
As you probably have seen in past posts, I compare new knowledge to the Truth of the bible, which is what our SIT was about this week, too. So….here are a few verses that helped me relate:
The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth. Psalms 145:18
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
I wrote them out by hand and read them with my lesson daily. It is a great reminder, that all we have to do is believe, ask, and give HIM the glory. We were to focus on Truth in our SIT. I also kept thinking BIG thoughts because God thinks BIG thoughts. Have no limit on what we want, what we believe, what we think. Have you ever thought about that? We hear, “the sky’s the limit” all the time, but do we believe it? Do we sit and BE it? Today is Thursday….we are to imagine sitting with our future self in the coffee shop. I asked my future self, “What big things have you done?” I thought of big travel and couldn’t get anywhere. Then…………………….what is bigger than ME traveling? Me bringing along others! That is BIG travel. Bringing along family that wouldn’t be able to go otherwise. Bringing along less fortunate people that need to see their family in other places. Bringing along….
Oh, thinking BIG is fun!
