Hope in the Unseen

Yesterday my prayer partner and I had a power prayer session and I felt like the Lord gave me a very specific word about faith in this season.  When our hearts are surrendered and our mind is determined in faith, the soul is at peace.  The challenge often times is getting to the moment of surrender.  I fell on my knees in surrender last night over a decision in my life.  I had my mind set on something and in the end it didn’t come to fruition.  I was quite disappointed for a few minutes and then I let go of it.  I knew God had a plan B in mind and now I just need to discern the next steps.

Sisters, today Jesus and I are noshing on a little breakfast at a local, French cafe downtown.  It’s quiet and I have the place to myself and it is glorious.  I have been praying a lot for the gift of faith.  I want it so desperately.  I have a dear friend in Los Angeles who possesses the gift of faith and it is absolutely beautiful. Hebrews 11:1 says,

 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.  

Easier said than done, right?  It is SO very worth remaining in hope.  Keep up the fight for hope that he will come.  Your love is on the way! May we remain confident in this truth that God truly gives us the desires of our hearts.  Stay fixed on him and you will remain in perfect peace.  Now let us pray for faith!

Dear Jesus~I so yearn and desire for the gift of faith.  I want a faith like my friend (or insert person with the gift of faith).  She has so much trust in you.  I’m standing at a precipice now in my life and faith is exactly what I need.  Please help me to lean on your love that drives out all fear.  I know your plans for me are to prosper me and give me a future and a hope.  I am hoping in the unseen now.  I press on towards the goal that leads me heavenward.  You are a good, good father and I know you love to give your children spiritual gifts.  I love you Lord and I thank you for being my Papa.  Amen!
