C.A.S.T. Day Three.

Hello and good day. Today we will look at Supplication. This can be rendered Ask, Petition, or make a Request! It is literally a request by a person personally to God for specific needs! Hence in Philippians 4:6 we are exhorted not to fret or worry but to literally talk to God about it, unburden ourselves of it and request that which we need, and be specific!

Paul say’s, literally, ‘don’t be anxious about anything, but in everything make your requests known to God’ We have a choice;

  1. Worry which is empowered by FEAR, or
  2. Pray which is empowered by FAITH.

So, the person who worries simply wont pray, they will worry and fear the outcome of the situation facing them and because they expect the worst have a guess what they will get? The worst of course because fear is a force like faith, except that it’s negative and opposite to faith. However, the person who exercises faith, will expect the best based on God’s word and promises, and so the best will come to them because of their positive expectations. That’s why Paul say’s to those who follow this prayer pattern, you wont be overcome by fear but you will have a peace that’s beyond understanding.

Gracious loving Father, I come to you this day, I choose Lord not to worry, instead I choose to pray. In all things I will trust you, I put my faith in you
for your word is your promise and all of those are true. I lay my needs before you, I know Lord that you hear for you are ever faithful and you are ever near. And so with expectation I wait for you in peace knowing you will answer and meet my every need. Thank you Lord. Amen.  J K W

Let's make a start. I am a Christian but I guess that's pretty obvious. I am a gardener, builder by trade. I live in the Black country. I love 50s 60s 70s and 80s music. I play guitar and sing. I do open mic nights, I love growing veg and flowers, but I don't eat the flowers. Well I eat cauliflowers but that's not the same. If you need a good Gardener/bricklayer/landscaper and plasterer, not all in one go of course then contact me. My business is Dedicated In Gardens or D.I.G. Do you get it! Or do you dig it? johnkarlw@gmail.com
