Never never get angry over your circumstances.

That’s a hard one, but so true. God allows things that are outright hard, disappointing and just unhappy and discouraging. But God is still God, the sun still shines above the clouds. Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. If you just pray, God will make a way and bring understanding.

The morning time is the best opportunity to connect and relate with God in the Bible and prayer – super encouraging Bible verses

Just before the day gets going, the crazy things start coming,  worry, threats, coffee not ready, stresses come, the emails come, a software update, a software bug, the twitters come, furnace stops working,  Facebook is calling  and then the other billion things that fill a day.  Take time in the morning before other crazy things to connect, relate and talk to God the source of our life and our strength. He is the one to enlarge us, prepare us and strengthen us through the whole day.

Consider these wonderful super encouraging Bible verses on prayer in the morning.

Revelation 2:28 and I will give him the morning star. (Once the sun comes up or we answer two emails, the star cannot be seen)

Psalms 30:5 For his anger is but for a moment,and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night,but joy comes with the morning.

 Mark 1:35  Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. Jesus really liked the morning time for prayer and Bible reading. Notice Jesus got up before the sleepy sun got up.

Encouragement to Pray

Multnomah Falls, Oregon

The best verse or maybe a great one that is super encouraging is: Luke 11:9-13
So I say to you, keep asking, and it will be given to you. Keep searching, and you will find. Keep knocking, and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and the one who searches finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 What father …. 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”

So we have a wonderful Heavenly Father who loves us and cares for us. We just need to ask Him for what we need. Look at the  phrase “keep knocking”, this means do not give up.  Don’t think that our Father in heaven has forgotten us. Keep asking, keep seeking, and keep knocking. And keep believing our wonderful Father.

Prayer – Abraham Strengthened In Faith

These verses on Abraham are packed with faith and encouragement.

Romans 4:17 …  God, who gives life to the dead and calls those things which do not exist as though they did;   18who, contrary to hope, in hope believed, so that he became the father of many nations, according to what was spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”   19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.   20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,   21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

Consider the seven sections of these verses that add encouragement and faith to our daily experience of prayer.

1. gives life to the dead – what is not working, God can make it work.

2. calls those things which do not exist as though they did – what we cannot find or do or does not seem to be there, God can create out of nothing.

3.  in hope believed – this is compounded faith, in the middle of hope there is also more  faith.

4. not being weak in faith – Abraham’s faith was very strong just because God spoke to Him. God’s speaking was enough to trigger faith and belief in Abraham.

5.  did not waver at the promise of God – because his faith was strong there was not a shadow of doubt or consideration that God could not fulfill the very thing God promised to Abraham and Sarah – a baby boy, a son – Isaac.

6. strengthened in faith – Abraham’s faith got even more strengthened every day while he did not see the fulfillment, but just believed God according to what God had spoken.

7. being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform – Where did Abraham get all this faith and belief in God that what God had spoken, He, that is God, could and would do.
