THE LORD IS FAR FROM THE WICKED, BUT HE HEARS THE
PRAYERS OF THE RIGHTEOUS.
( PROVERBS 15:29 *NKJV )
We may pray that God will handle a problem for us, or to
fulfill a dream we have, while never letting it go for Him to handle.
We instead take it back and try to handle it on our own.
We may then even put all of our trust in another to solve it for
us as well. Now it is written; IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE
LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN. ( PSALM 118:8 )
So the next time that you ask God to handle something for you,
leave it in God's capable hands, and; REST IN THE LORD, AND
WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM. ( PSALM 37:7 ) Do not pull it back
again and try to handle it without Him.
Now this reminds me of a poem that I often read before I pray
for something, and I will share it with you right now. I hope that
you will enjoy it as much as I do.
As children bring
their broken toys
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams
because He was my friend!
But then instead
of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around
and tried to help
that were my own.
At last I snatched them back
"How can you be so slow?"
"My child," He said
"What could I do?
You never did let go."
