Let’s make a spiritual sandwich. The top slice of bread is God; specifically, WHO GOD IS. You think your bread is enriched? Well, this bread is the BREAD OF LIFE! Think about that – Who IS God?
God’s answer was I AM. So, He is everything – literally.
God doesn’t owe us anything yet in His grace, He still gives us good things. – Billy Graham
The bottom slice of bread is equally enriched with spiritual nutrition! This slice represents WHAT GOD WILL DO. This is where we need to exercise our faith in Him. The longer we have trusted God to take care of us, the easier it is to trust Him with all of our problems and burdens! So what is faith?
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1
We were saved by faith and our faith in God is what we come to rely on throughout our lives. This slice of bread is very important for our spiritual sandwich.
What goes between these two slices of bread? Every problem, care, doubt, sin, temptation to sin needs to be there. The prayers we pray are placed there – even when you are faced with troubles, trials and temptations, ask God to give you a hunger for Him.
Prayers of faith and repentance are part of the sandwich as well. Without repentance, we remain apart from God. Repent and get back on track with Him. God is a just and Holy God and cannot look upon sin. He does not adjust His standards to meet our lifestyle. Our lifestyle must adjust to meet His standards.
Any concern too small to be turned into a prayer is too small to be made into a burden. – Corrie Ten Boom
Place your burdens and the prayers you pray to God in-between WHO GOD IS and WHAT GOD WILL DO on your behalf. There’s no better place for them to be! ❤
