God's Living Room

"Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need." - Hebrews 4:16

I love watching kids.

God sure does speak through them.

Two little guys were playing out in their backyard with a football. As they tossed it back and forth, one of them threw it a bit too high, and it became stuck on top of their house.

One of the little boys asked, "Do you want me to climb up there and get the football?" The other replied simply, "You're too small to do that...

...but I know who we can get."

"Let's go ask our Father - he's big enough to get it done for us."

And, with that, they went into the living room where their father was and asked him to get their football down. Then, they did a remarkable thing...

...they went outside and waited with confidence for him to do as they had asked.

Christian, that's exactly how you and I are to pray. When we are up against something that we are just too small to handle, then...

...I know who we can get.

We can ask our Father - He's big enough to get it done for us.

You know, God has given us access to Him in prayer. That's right, we can just slip into His Living Room and make our requests known to Him. And, upon sharing our heart's burdens and needs and even wants, we should go outside and wait with confidence for Him to do as we have asked.

That's faith. Faith that moves mountains. Faith that gets footballs down off of houses.

How about it, friend? Do you have any footballs on the top of your house? You know, needs that are so high up that you just can't meet them yourself. Maybe you are experiencing an illness or a financial burden. Perhaps there is a relationship problem or an unhappy workplace. You might even be struggling with a decision or a sin. It oesn't matter what your need is this morning, you can take it to the Father.

He's there, right now, waiting for you to share what's on your heart. The door of prayer is open...

...why not enter into God's Living Room and leave your burden with Him?

Have a "Wonderful DAY in Christ,"
