I still believe prayer changes things

It’s not because You cannot do it Lord.

Sometimes I worry, and fret, and fear.

I doubt, and start to second guess what I already know.

But it’s not because I’ve stopped believing in You. Or that I no longer trust You. Or that I do not know what’s possible with You.

This state of being, where I worry, and fret, and fear, and doubt, and start to second guess what I already know –

It’s not because of unbelief (I desperately certainly hope not!)

I just forget sometimes, and find myself living within the limits of human senses.

But that’s not where You are.

What You say is not true because I can see it, or smell it, or touch it, or taste it, or hear it.

What You say is true because it is true.

And Lord, it’s not because You cannot do it.

Standing without, and away from the lies that portray themselves as my reality, I see more clearly now.

So take me higher – above the limits of human senses.

And deeper – more firmly rooted and secure in You.

Then I’d look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith.

And I’d know my God, and be strong and do exploits.

And no, Lord, it’s not because You cannot do it.

So help me remember that prayer changes things.

And that with You all things are possible.

It’s not because You cannot do it Lord.

I still believe.

Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen – Ephesians 3:20-21.
