PRAY LIKE IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY…

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

WHEN YOU PRAY, PRAY LIKE IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY…..

Did you notice in today’s Scripture how big God thinks? Sometimes we’re praying for a dollar-an-hour raise; God’s talking about giving you nations. We’re praying to pay our bills; God’s planning on blessing you so you can also pay other people’s bills. We’re looking at the five loaves and two fish; God’s thinking about the twelve basketfuls of leftovers.

What does that mean, “Today is your birthday”? On your birthday, more than at any other time, you feel entitled to ask for something special. When you were a child, you knew that was your special day. You had the boldness to ask for what you really wanted. God is saying, “When you pray, act as though it’s your birthday and I am your heavenly Father. Come to Me with boldness. Ask Me for what you really want. Don’t hold back. Tell Me what you’re believing for. Ask for the secret things I placed in your heart.” Dare to ask big.

Today’s Scripture

Psalm 2:7–8, MSG

“You’re my son, and today is your birthday. What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? continents as a prize?”
