Have you heard the expression ‘be careful what you wish for’? I don’t know about you, but there are times I need to be careful what I pray for!! When we pray it changes things… it changes things in the world outside and it changes things within us, even if we weren’t praying for something for ourselves. God is very mysterious and yet very cool in the way He works things!!
God never complicates things. We do. If life is getting complicated or confusing or chaotic then we are getting off track somewhere. Obedience to God leads us to peace, righteousness and joy. Not confusion or complication.
James 4:7-8 says submit to God. Resist the devil and he will leave
