“You Don’t Have to Know How to Give Him the Answer…”

Humor: Jeanne Robertson “Don’t send a man to the grocery store!”
 
 
 
A big thank you to E.M. and J.B. for sharing what you are learning from a ladies Bible study on Living a Life of Prayer by Jennifer Dean.
 
“Prayer is simple. Is there a need that is weighing on your shoulders?  John 2 – Mary simply told Jesus the need with a simple request. ‘They have no wine.’  You don’t have to know how to give Him the answer. You just have to give Him the problem.  It has nothing to do with you – but with God.”
 
 

Lord, every single good gift comes from You…

(Personaliizing Jennifer Dean quotes and God’s Word  for me below)
374. “I don’t have to know how to give Him the answer. I just have to give Him the problem.  It has nothing to do with me – but with God.”
375. “To me God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the people I rub shoulders with: which is CHRIST IN ME the hope of glory.” (From Col 1:27)
376. “Everything God wants to do on the earth He will do through the prayers of His people. The praying life IS Christ.  It is the life of Jesus Christ operating in me. I am His house.”
377. By God’s enabling power, He is teaching me to live a life of prayer.  Help me be a fast learner, Father!
378. Michelle coming and being such a blessing

  1. I love this observation about the story of the water to wine. She just told him the problem and left it in his hands to work out the solution. This will be a long term blessing to remember.
    This morning my assignment was to go through Ps 119 and list how David felt about God’s Word. Then I went through with the question Why did he feel that way? The first assignment made me wish I felt more like David. The second assignment moved my heart in that direction. What a blessing that was! When you have time, try it! You’ll like it. Nita
