Pray About It

“Why is this happening to me?” Gen 25:22

The Bible says, “The Lord answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, “Why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the Lord. The Lord said to her, ‘Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.’ ” (Gen 25:21-23) Even when your vision is born of God, you’ll experience times of both faith and fear. You can have clarity in one area, yet experience confusion in another. What should you do when this happens? Do what Rebekah did: take it to the Lord in prayer. She asked, “Why is this happening to me?”

Are you experiencing fear and foreboding in the middle of your successes? Are you wondering, “What is wrong with me?” Things are going so well, so why am I anxious? You’ve achieved some success and things are starting to come together after a long, hard struggle. But instead of feeling happy, you’re disappointed because your not experiencing the joy and fulfillment you expected; you’re actually worrying about what might go wrong in the future. In every success story you’ll find chapters of uncertainty. And when it happens you must bring your turmoil to the Lord. Ask Him for help with the inner conflict you are experiencing, and to give you peace concerning the vision He’s given you. And remember – no matter what you achieve, its ability to satisfy you is limited. No amount of success can ever take God’s place in your life.
