Motive Check(A Girl Devotional Series)

You do not have, because you do not ask God.

When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that

you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

James 4:2-3

When you pray do you pray with God in mind our others? How do you pray? What do you say? Or what is your motives for praying? Most of the time we tend to pray will heavy hearts, without gladness and thanksgiving. We pray for popularity, beauty and riches. Therefore, when those prayers don’t return at all we blame God. Why? Here’s the true bomb. We pray when it is convenient for us, but not for God.

I know why and how, because I too have done the same thing. Thus say it the Lord in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

You see God is not a wicked God, because look!! what were talking about is right here in this verse. So, pray without ceasing. Pray even for me, because I too have my battles to fight and in the name of Jesus Christ I shall conquer them.

God is with you!!

Dear Father, I thank you so much for giving me your peace. Father, I thank your Holy Spirit for speaking through me and conveying what must be said. I pray for anyone who reads this, that they too will be filled with the Holy Spirit. Amen.
