PRASING HIM AT ALL TIMES!

There is nothing better than the feeling of that moment when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. That Unique moment when everything else fades away and all we are can experience is pure joy and the overwhelming presence of God in our body and soul.When we start getting involved with the scriptures and we start understanding the love of God for us, is something like we find in Ezekiel 2:8; 3:3. Be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you'. . . .Then I ate it, and it was in my mouth as
"sweet as honey"

But as we grow in our walk with God, things begin to get tougher and it seems like God isn't working thru us like He used to. It seems that God doesn't respond to our prayers like he used to. It seems as if God isn't as present as He used to be...
We pray and things begin to happen on an oppsoite way that of what we asked for. It seems that the more we pray , the harder things get and it seems as if God has taken a trip and He has forgotten you. It's amazing that we can get so used to God's continous presence operating amazing things in our lives that when we begin to experience God's silence....we begin to ask questions. Is God here? Did he forget me? Has he abandoned me? Did I do something wrong? Am I not praying in the right way?
From reading and meditating on the scriptures I find that God teaches us valuables lesson thru His silence, things like faith and perseverence.When we persevere in our prayers (or pray constantly, with endurance, or unceasingly, or always, etc) we are essentially putting our complete trust the Lord. We are going to him helplessly and presenting our requests to God. When we persevere, our faith and hope is in him. In essence, we are not losing heart. We can go to God and persevere because we know he is omniscient and omnipotent. He will not leave us out to dry. We can know, if we are a true child of God that we can say “Praise God” for a prayer request that happens and say “Praise God” for a prayer request that does not happen. Both happen because God wills and he wants to work everything together for our good (Rom. 8:28). If something doesn’t happen that we ask for, something better is in God’s mind. Something greater is on the way. For these reasons, we can persevere in prayer and pray continually.
See, God teaches us thru this moments of silence how to depend totally on Him, how to live life in an endless perseverence for his presence and domain over our lives. We hunger for God's presence, this was the cry of Job, "Oh, that I knew where I might I find him!" is a timeless expression of the deep yearning of the human spirit. It could have been uttered by men of any race, clime, or time, for it is the soul's most sincere desire. God will never leave us or forsake us, He hears you at any time, anywhere. No matter what kind of hardship or challenge you're going thru we always have a reason to worship and God is this reason. I want to post here a video from a song that shows exactly this.
