The Master Teacher, Jesus, taught us “to pray, believing that we have, and THEN, we shall receive.” The word shall does not mean immediately. It denotes the future. He specifically does not say, when you pray you will receive what you want right then.
So, saying what you need is Step 1. Believing is Step 2. And then, waiting for God, is Step 3.
Why is it that we wait for everything in life: our pay checks, plants to grow, fruit to ripen, relationships to develop, but we have trouble believing in the one consistent message of Jesus: Wait upon the Lord?
We are a race of anxious people. We have a Santa-Claus mentality when it comes to receiving our good. Not many people are willing to work for… or wait for… anything in this world. Remember the days when you wrote a letter? You would have to wait for the receiver to get the letter, write back to you, then for the mail to deliver the letter.
One bit of communication could take three weeks. Where now, all we do is open our cell devices, send a message to any part of the world, and we immediately get answers. When we don’t receive with immediacy, often we move on, barely ever wanting to wait for anyone or any reward. What kind of people are becoming and are we raising our children to be?
I know with certainty that we cannot stop how quickly the world is moving toward fast-paced communication, but for important things that we know must take time and faith, we also must learn a different methodology for our desires. This method is called prayer and faith, the method of Jesus!
For instance, if you want a loving relationship, you may need to wait for the right person to come along. Moving through fifteen different on-line dating sites, still, will not manifest the person you are meant to love fully. But, if you insist on trying so hard, because of your anxious need to be fulfilled; you will, indeed, find someone—but, perhaps, not the someone you have prayed for. This kind of anxious behavior may be manifesting from Anxious Attachment Disorder, which resulted from a strong need to bond with a loving parent as a child.
But, instead of working through this issue now clinically with a professional, we circumvent traditional ways of change to get what we need right now. I wonder how this will manifest in the long run.
My suggestion is that you balance your immediate lives with some contemplation and meditation each day, so that you can observe yourself and your decisions and rectify those places in your life that you control or manipulate.
A contemplative life, will also let you know when you need to wait for God, because you listen to your thoughts and to your body in a consistent way. Also, too, you will develop a stronger spiritual connection, which will give you peace when you make decisions that support your loving life.
This year, if you desire to commit to a change for a New Year’s Resolution, do it with your MIND first. Remember, as in the title of my new book coming out just in time to help you with this (in January)… lol… that all change happens in your mind, first. You must change your Old Story, to make a consistent and long lasting change in Your Life.
