“I pray to GOD —my life a prayer— and wait for what he’ll say and do.”
‭‭Psalm‬ ‭130:5-6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Today is a good day for you to pray with open hands.

Instead of trying to hold on so desperately to what you are afraid of letting go, give it to God.

Trust God with it.

Pray and let God be God.

Present your requests, petitions, hopes, and desires to Him and then let Him do what only He can do.

Give them to Jesus and leave the results to Him.

Release your expectations of how he should answer while at the same time knowing that He will.

It will transform your life.

He wants to.

He will.

Begin today to pray with open hands.

How hard is it for you to leave the results to God?

What does it mean for you to let God be God in your life?

Take It

You will never feel more alive than when you take a step of faith.

When you make the call,
Say the words,
Reach out,
Run ahead,
Or slow down.

You do it before you see results,
without assurance of success,
and not knowing where it will take you.

It is a step of faith.

In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. James‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬ NIV

The reverse is true as well- every time you let an opportunity pass to put your faith into action, it dies a little bit.

If you are reading this, you are not dead. Neither is your faith.
Put it into action.

How is your faith?

What step of obedience do you need to take today?

Begin 


Today is a good day to begin.

Begin to pray differently. 

Begin to pray with open hands and open eyes.

Instead of praying with closed hands, holding on so desperately to what you are afraid to let go of, pray with open hands and let God be God. 

Present your requests, petitions, hopes and desires to Him and them let Him do what only He can do. Give them to Him and leave the results to Him. Release your expectations of how He should answer while at the same knowing that He will answer. 

Today is a good day to begin asking God to reveal Himself to you.

“(Pray) Like this: Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Matthew 6:9 MSG “

Instead of praying, “God, this is who I want you to be”, begin to pray, “God reveal who You are to me.”

It will transform your life.
He wants to.
He will.

Begin today to pray different. 

When was the last time you asked simply God to reveal Himself to you or in your situation?”

How hard is it for you to leave the results to God? 

What does it mean for you to let God be God in your life?
