We can’t reach our highest potential in our own ability; we need God’s help. Part of releasing His help is through praying bold prayers.
God is moved by our faith. If you ask small, little prayers, you’ll get little results. But if you pray big prayers, you’re going to get big results. Matthew 9:29 says, “According to your faith it will be done to you.” (NIV). If you’re going to see God’s surpassing greatness, go beyond praying little prayers and ask God to do something big in your life. God is longing to amaze you with His goodness. Dare to stretch your faith. God wants to give you the secret petitions of your heart.
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for. (Romans 5:8)
Put God First
By Joyce Meyer
But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides. (MATTHEW 6:33)
I have learned that spending time with God is a vital necessity in my life. I cannot do what I am called to do if I don’t seek the presence of God every day. If I don’t have time for God first, nothing else in my life works out.
God isn’t happy with second place or third place in our lives.
When we are desperate enough, we find time to seek God. We turn the telephone off, we say no to our friends, and we turn our face away from all
distractions and seek Him. That is when we get our breakthrough.
