“He granted their request because they trusted in Him.” 1 Chronicles 5:20 HCSB
Sometimes we forget to slow ourselves down long enough to talk with God. Instead of turning our thoughts and prayers to Him, we rely on our own resources. Instead of praying for strength and courage, we try to manufacture it within ourselves. Instead of asking God for guidance, we depend only on our own limited wisdom. The results of such behaviors are usually unfortunate and on occasion, tragic. If you are in need, ask God to sustain you. If you are troubled, take your worries to Him in prayer. If you are weary, seek His strength. In all things great and small, seek His wisdom and grace. He hears your prayers, and He will answer; all you have to do is ask.
