5 Lies Christians Believe (Part 3 of 5)

In Part 1 of this blog series, we discussed the importance of getting involved in the church.  In Part 2 of this blog series, we discussed how being a good person and doing good works can’t earn us a spot in heaven.  Only through believing in God and having a relationship with Him will gain us a spot in heaven.

In today’s blog we are going to look at a 3rd lie that Christians commonly believe:

God doesn’t are about your small things.

We tend to think that God is much too busy with all the big issues.  Somewhere along the way we convince ourselves that God has got a lot on His plate and so we don’t bother Him with our silly little lives.  We have no problems praying for others.  We make our own requests known only when they are “big” things and then we doubt He might care or actually hear us.  We never think about asking God for “little” things.

God cares so much.  He knows the number of hairs on our head.  He does not just tolerate us or put up with us.  He delights in us.  He is overjoyed to hear our voice, calling out to Him.  He cares about all the small details of our lives just as much as the “big picture.”  He desires us to let Him into the small spaces inside us where He can take up residence and bring peace to our hearts.

Let’s see what the bible has to say about this:

“Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted to you.”

                                                                                Mark 11:24

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.  Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone?  Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake?  If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!

                                                                                Matthew 7:7-11

Well, I think that sums up just about everything.  What parts of our lives should we ask God for help in?  All of them.  What is considered too small to trouble God with?  Nothing.  When we are asking God for help, we need to go back to our inner child.  Remember back to when you were a child and how you would approach your parents for something you wanted?  God is our father and we are His children.  We need to approach God as such.  God wants us to approach Him in this way.  God can’t help us if we don’t ask for it. 

Let’s all try to work with involving God with all aspects of our life.  God is never too busy for us and there is no one who loves us more than he does.  He loves us so much that he allowed His only Son to be brutally murdered just so we could have our sins forgiven and have a closer relationship with Him.  Does that sound like anybody who would get tired of us coming to them asking for things?  Not really.  Let’s open up our hearts fully to the only One we know will never let us down.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
