Just read Courtney's blog and this is basically what I was trying to say in the last part of my last post, but I think Courtney said it much more clearly! Thanks Court!
"To you it was shown that you might know that the Lord, He is God; there is no other besides Him." (Deuteronomy 4:35)
"...I have seen that God wants to do cool & supernatural things in our lives - just to show how cool HE is! He wants to do things that make us stand in awe of Him & praise Him because He gives good things to those who love Him! He wants to lead you to pray for something, then give it to you, just to prove that He is faithful. He wants to give you a vision of something, then bring it to pass, to show that He keeps His promises. He wants us to think about how COOL He is! I now pray for specific things that I feel led to pray for because I can then watch for God to work & recognize that He really is orchestrating the things I hand to Him (which should be everything, I remind myself)."
I hope this affects you!
