I understand God better now. God answers all my prayers, and delivers all my enemies into my hands. He is very, very amazing, indeed!
I also understand too that when we pray and ask God for strength, He will answer our prayers. He will give us strength. But not like magically, over night. But by dragging your cross around, that’s how you will become strong. You learn patience by dragging your cross around. We pray for these things, and we receive them. But God does not just “give us” these things. We earn these things, through hard work and dedication. So, as the old saying goes, be careful what you pray for because you just might get it :o)
