"You Are Heard" - 12/01/13 - 2 Corinthians 1-4

12/01/13 - 2 Corinthians 1-4

"You Are Heard" -

"And He did it, rescued us from certain doom.
And He'll do it again, rescuing us as many times as we need rescuing.       
You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation -
I don't want you in the dark about that either.
I can see your faces even now, lifted in praise for God's deliverance of us,
a rescue in which your prayers played such a crucial part."(1:10-11)

Thinking back, the times I usually think my prayers aren't being heard, is when ABBA answers them His way instead of my way.  The times I feel my life has no meaning, I have no meaning, thinking life is so unfair - those are the times I am focused on "self" and not focusing on Him.  I am not praying.


I so love our ABBA.  He could have made it so we weren't needed.  Done everything on His own. 
But - He created us with the need to be needed and utilizes that need all the time. 

He is the only one who can fill the Need Void within us.  Nothing or no one else is able to. 

So, the next time you are feeling you aren't someone special.  You aren't someone He needs.  Think about what Paul wrote - "You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation".


How amazing is that. 
The Creator of all, uses us - each and every one of us - as part of the rescue operation for those who are lost.  Not for our glory, but His.
"You and your prayers are part of the rescue operation".  
"You" - who are "fearfully and wonderfully made".  Keep on praying on.
