You know those private thoughts you have, that you yourself are not even aware of? God sees. He knows. It is true that when Jesus said “my father in heaven knows you need them”, he meant it. Think about it. I myself forget how much God is aware of me. Just now I was having a thought about something carnal I was missing, and the holy spirit spoke to my heart and said to me “this is an opportunity for you to do this instead”. Ok, so if you are wondering I’ll explain. I have been feeling “dealt with” about drinking less coffee and more water for awhile now. Well, I have been … more obedient not 100 lol. My goal is to only drink one cup a day… sometimes I have had 2-3… actually that’s not the whole truth…. Sometimes I only drink one cup lol… most time I drink 2-3 cups. Well, my coffee pot broke a couple days ago 😦 yes.. this is what I was thinking about, how much I’m missing my caffeine. And then as I was having this thought having grief about it and not even knowing I was thinking this way, the holy spirit spoke up and said “this is an opportunity to drink that water I’ve been telling you to drink” lol… oh, ok you were listening God? hahahaha….. I didn’t even realize I was thinking about this until his voice entered my consciousness. Let’s thank God that he cares enough to allow things like dropping food in our laps when we’ve had enough, or spilling coffee on ourselves (which I did tonight at my friend’s house, their coffee pot works), or a broken coffee pot. Yes God, you care about what I drink.. as little as this issue is apparently you care enough. I’m getting the message. Thank you heavenly father for caring enough. So, if our holy father cares enough about what you drink to allow your coffee cup to suddenly slip out of your grip or to somehow allow your coffee pot to break, then he certainly cares about the things that cause big alligator tears, right? You speak and speak and speak to God as if he isn’t listening, but he is. This is when we stop and ask him why he’s not answering, because it isn’t because he cares, but instead it is because he does care and he wants you to ask him and seek his face about it… do ask why, that is an acceptable prayer request.
