Good morning, this is God!

Ever had one of those days?  One of those weeks or even months?  I did, only it seemed every day was one of those days.

I was journalling to Father about it recently and my eyes fell on a quote on a little plaque that I received from Joyce Meyer, years ago.

Good morning, this is God!

I will be handling all your problems today.

I will not need your help –

So, have a good day.

I love you!

I must admit I was a little taken aback by the extent of what that meant, even though I had read it for years.  What, You mean I can just let it all go and let You look after it?  Can I really do that?  I asked Him for a verse, please, just in case Joyce got it wrong.  He gave me two:-

……  casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].  I Peter 5:7  AMP

Cast your burden on the Lord [releasing the weight of it] and He will sustain you; He will never allow the [consistently] righteous to be moved (made to slip, fall, or fail).   Psalm 55:22 AMP

Casting can also mean ‘to drop’.  Hmmm, so I can just drop it at Your feet, and then just walk away?  Sounds almost too good to be true, but I did it anyway.  And you know what? I started feeling more peaceful, knowing that He’s got it.

Praying with our eyes

Just recently I have learned to pray with my eyes, and it has added an exciting new dimension to my prayer life.  To explain it simply –

When praying for others:

  1. Imagine the person in your mind.
  2. Ask Jesus what He wants to show you regarding that person.
  3. Pray what He is showing you.  (John 5:19)Eyes

You may see Him ‘zapping’ someone with His healing power, holding someone in His arms while they cry, or infusing someone with joy.  He may even give you a glimpse into their future or show you something He wants you to tell them.

Don’t stress if you don’t see something for everyone. This does not mean we are not to pray for them, only that He doesn’t want to show us anything for a particular person just yet.
