When the Bottom Falls Out of Your Life and the Lives of Your Family and Nation, Ask God to Get Involved Through Prayer, Thanks, and Worship

 MESSAGE SUMMARY: Sometimes the bottom falls out in your personal life, your family’s life, or your nation’s life; and you wonder where God is in all your fears and uncertainties. Well, the challenge to you is to “Thank God” by turning your life-focus to God and thanking Him in your prayers and Worship. We have no better teacher, of the need to address God with our thanks, than when, in Luke11:2, Jesus responded to His Disciples’ request to teach them to pray: “And he said to them, ‘When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come.’". By taking your situation to God in prayer and thanks, you will be amazed at what will happen to your situations which, before you asked God through prayer and thanks, seemed insurmountable. What do you usually do? You worry and fret – you focus on the negative and give the adverse situation so much power, in your life, rather than focusing on God and giving Him thanks. In Mathew 6:34, Jesus tells you not to be anxious about your life situations: “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.". Ask God to get involved in your life through prayer and thanks – you will be amazed.

 

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, Because of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by Loneliness. Rather, I will abide in the Lord’s Presence. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): 1 Corinthians 11:25; Colossians 2:2-3; John 10:25-30; Psalms 17:1-15.
