Obedience over understanding 

Sometimes the Lord calls us to be obedient even when we don’t understand. For me it is in the area of prayer. I often struggle with thoughts about how my prayers can be not only heard but how they could my prayers make a difference in the world. But the Lord did not call me to understand His ways. He only called me to be obedient to bringing those prayer request before his feet. He will take care of the rest.

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Lord, help us today to be obedient to your word and to not worry about the parts that are outside our control. Amen.
