Day 53- The Great Communicator

You do not have, because you do not ask God.  ~James 4:2 c

Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.  ~ Mark 11:24

Have you ever been misunderstood?  Have you ever tried to communicate something and you messed things up; it just seemed to do more harm than good?  Perhaps you wanted to tell someone something but you just didn’t know how.

God understands and He wants to help us build better relationships through better communication.  I was recently reminded of an important lesson the Holy Spirit taught me many years ago.  I’d tried many times to bring up a subject with a friend and the conversation was always so difficult, so misunderstood and would end up in confusion.

In frustration and discouragement I began to talk to God about the situation that had become a terrible strain on our friendship. God was already working in both our hearts, as I ended my prayer, my friend came over and said to me.  I was thinking, do you think we should begin working on this project now?  I was stunned, is this the same person who never wanted to discuss this, who always seemed to change the subject?

God is the great communicator! Now we are making plans to complete our project and we are both on the same page.  God knows just how to speak to our hearts and wants to intervene, but sometimes we never ask Him to.
