Prayer does work

Prayer does work – James 1:6

Have you ever wanted to do something but wasn’t sure if it was the right thing to do? I think everyone has had that moment at some point in his or her life. But, what do you do when you just aren’t sure?

Pray about it! It took me so long to learn that. I would either jump right into things without thinking or deny myself only to wonder if I should have gone for it. Both options often left me regretting the decision. But the Bible says…
James 1:6

6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.
NKJV

I recently wanted to sign up for a course that I thought would be very helpful for me. However, the price was sore point. I quit a high paying job a year ago to work for  non-profit and am on a tight budget. I decided to forgo the course, but that decision just wasn’t sitting right with me. Then, finally, I gave it to God. I asked for clear direction and stated that I wanted to take the course. I woke up to an email which led me to think that maybe the course was possible. I then went online to look at it again and felt it was definitely the right thing to do.

After making the purchase, I got a phone call that solidified my decision. I knew it had to be from God, the timing was just too perfect. I’d been worrying about money, but God took care of that. Praise Him!

When you are having serious doubts, give it God. That is what he asks us to do.
