REFLECTION . How to pray when I am discouraged? . By Fabian Massa

Translated from Spanish to English with Google Translator.



Many times I have gone I feel bad for morale , for something I want and not what I can get. In these situations , things are dangerous to our soul :


1. Falling in the complaint
Two . sulk
Three . give up
April . Losing faith and hope
May . Falling into a bad attitude
June . Talk with everyone
July . Getting angry with God and lose the grace and blessing
August . When we reach this point , we are in a real DISASTER .


Then I realize I need to pray , talk to God of the topic and see a problem:

a. How to talk to God in my distress without sounding complaint or reproach, after all that he did and does for me?

b . How to raise my situation without looking like an ingrate to God ?


c . Ever did the same ?


I did as I was taught and seek help in the Word, and I realized that I was not the first nor passing this would be the last :

Genesis 15 [1 ]

1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision , saying, Fear not , Abram : I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward .
2 And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me , seeing I go childless , and the steward of my house is Eliezer of Damascus ? 3 And Abram said, Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, lo, it will be my heir one born in my house . 4 Then came to him the word of Jehovah , saying, not be your heir , but a son of yours will be your heir . 5 Then He brought him outside and said, Look now toward heaven , and tell the stars , if thou be able . And he said , So shall thy seed be.
6 Abram believed the Lord , and it was counted for righteousness.

1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision , saying, Fear not , Abram : I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward .

And why God says : " ... Do not fear ... " If Abram always recognized the voice and presence of God? He was not referring to this type of fear but as if to say :

"Do not worry son, I 'm here to listen to you, protect you and give you many great gifts to make you happy."

2 And Abram said, Lord GOD, what wilt thou give me , seeing I go childless , and the steward of my house is Eliezer of Damascus ?
This is what is called : Go straight to the point , bluntly . When you meditate on this verse I felt the deep anguish of Abram . I felt the Lord Abram answered :

 " Lord , my God will give me what gift that satisfies me , having been given as much wealth , power, full of good years , the love of my wife and the respect of my people and of the kings who are my allies ? "

WHAT I WANT IS MY SON, THAT YOU PROMISED ME !

3 And Abram said, Behold, to me you have given no seed: and, lo, it will be my heir one born in my house .

Here Abram specifies the why and the consequence : you inherit a slave born in your house. However, reading between the lines the most important thing is that it recognizes the Lordship of God in your life :

" ... Behold, to me you have given no seed ... " Read: Look Thou Oh Lord , you are the Creator of all , do not forget to give me offspring , according to Your Promise "

But he had also made ​​a statement unfavorable . God changes Abram declared curse for the blessing of a Promise :

4 Then came to him the word of Jehovah , saying, not be your heir , but a son of yours will be your heir .
5 Then He brought him outside and said, Look now toward heaven , and tell the stars , if thou be able . And he said , So shall thy seed be.
6 Abram believed the Lord , and it was counted for righteousness.

This is important, Abram believed in the promise of God and throwing away your negative beliefs and failure on the subject of their offspring , making the promise of God something sure and certain .
And God kept His promise , and continues to serve : In this very moment is a descendant of Abraham born somewhere in the world. The covenants we make with God are forever
And here is the key, the believing God , this is the true wisdom :

Knowing that He is True , Faithful and Fulfiller of His Promises , Loving Father to his children . Not enough to believe in God in order to fulfill All Justice , ( And the Justice of God are all His Words ) is required BELIEVE GOD.

Abram was immensely richer, his greatest treasure was to be a beloved child of God , to the point that they were friends , God visited him in his tent, shared food and conversing . And Abram was told by taken into account by Him
Abram had everything that had God , as it is written :

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness , and all these things shall be added . Matthew 6:33
