Can I admit that I’m not the best at recognizing when I need to pray. My prayer life is something I work on, I know its not my strength. Usually I try to solve things on my own.
When the sales pipeline dries up, I frantically look for business. When I have a new idea, I implement without seeking counsel. It’s just my nature.
There’s nothing wrong with this, its our entrepreneurial nature. But we’re missing one key element in the equation: going to God in prayer FIRST.
If we go to God and ask for strength, THEN we can move to doing what we were going to do but with much more backing us up.
Nehimiah was being attacked, but instead of caving in or trying to take on the enemies on his own, he asked God for strength.
Nehemiah 6:9 says They were all trying to frighten us, thinking, “Their hands will get too weak for the work, and it will not be completed.” But I prayed, “Now strengthen my hands.”
God wants us to come to him for strength as we rebuild.
