“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”(Psalm 24:1 KJV) He has the whole world in this hands. Pause for a moment and think about that! He is in absolute control of everything, and protects our coming and going today, tomorrow and forever more (Psalm 121:8).
God knows what we do, think and say (Psalm 139:1-5), and He guides and holds us in the palm of His hands, contemplating this so blessed David that he said “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it” (Psalm 139:6). God never takes his eyes off us, this is how precious we are to Him (Isaiah 62). David acknowledged this by saying “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well… 17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee. (Psalm 139:14-18KJV).
God’s Word says that if He is concerned with sparrows, how much more us? As He knows the number of hairs on our head so He knows and cares about every single thing that concerns us for we are more valuable than sparrows (Luke 12:6-7).
As we place the concerns (our agenda, worries etc…) of each day into His hands through prayer, we confirm to Abba Father that we trust Him as the one who has the whole world in His hands. The result? He will ensure each day unfolds according to His perfect will, so that we play our part in His World.
You are blessed, determine to stay blessed!

Many of us say, “There was nothing I could do but pray,” and yet that’s the first and best thing to do, regardless of the circumstance. Thank you, Deborah, for your insights as a strong believer in prayer power!

Yes the way that phrase is formulated it is as if prayer is the last resort, when it should be! Thanks Mary
