Things You Can’t Pray For
When a person gets born again and receives the spirit and life of Jesus the Christ within, they have all they need to live a fruitful and productive life. You can tell the level of knowledge and somewhat the level of maturity in a believer by the way they pray. When believers go through hardships and cry out asking for more faith, they’ll never get that prayer answered. We were all already dealt the measure of faith. Now that person must exercise their faith in order to develop it. One man in the bible asked Jesus to help is unbelief. He asked, but Jesus didn’t answer. The only way to build bi-ceps is by doing curls. You can’t ask for something you already have, our job is to develop it. Patience came by way as a fruit of the Spirit. When you pray for God to give you patience, He makes you wait longer. Waiting and enduring with a good temper is what develops patience. Self-control must be exercised as well in order to abstain and refrain. Tell your appetite you will not eat doughnuts every morning with your coffee. Tell your mind to read the bible and not watch television. He calls us disciples because we are “disciplined” followers of Christ. There are a lot of things we can pray for, then there are also a lot of things we already have, work it.
