Become a Circle Maker

Verse of the Week: Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7-8 (NASB)

The earth has circled the sun thousands of times since the day Honi drew his circle in the sand, but God is still looking for circle makers. And the timeless truth secreted within this ancient legend is as true now as it was then: bold prayers honor God and God honors bold prayers. God isn’t offended by our biggest dreams or our boldest prayers. He is offended by anything less.
If your prayers aren’t impossible to you, they are insulting to God. Why? Because they don’t require divine intervention. But ask God to part the Red Sea or make the sun stand still or float an iron ax-head, and God is moved to omnipotent action.
There is nothing God loves more than keeping promises, answering prayers, performing miracles, and fulfilling dreams. That is who He is. That is what He does. And the bigger the circle we draw, the better, because God gets more glory.
Who you become is determined by how you pray. Ultimately, the transcript of your prayers becomes the script of your life.
Enjoy and have a blessed week!
Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 (NIV)
