Would you bake a cake without adding eggs? Or, would you go to work and expect not to get paid for your labor? If you answered no to both questions, then my final question would be; would you pray to the Father, but not expect Him to answer?
We pray because we either need something from the Lord or want to thank Him for all that He has done for us. But, it makes no sense to pray for deliverance, healing or salvation only to doubt God
When we pray to the Father, God wants us to have faith in Him. Faith that He can deliver us. Faith that He can heal us and faith that He can save us. The bible clearly states in Hebrews 11:6: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him”
Let’s take Moses for example. If he didn’t have faith that God could deliver them from the Egyptians standing at the Red Sea, God would not have moved on his behalf
Just like Moses and countless others in the bible, FAITH moves God and remember what Jesus stated in Matthew 17:20: “Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you”
And for those of us who need a little help with our faith like the apostles asked in Luke 17:5; “Increase our faith”
So just to recap….
Praying without faith is vain, useless, of not substance…you get the picture. We must believe that the Father can and will in all things pertaining to our life….God Bless You!
