Hey you guys! This is Kelsie Millet and I am your host here on the Let Him In Podcast, where
my intent is to have these episodes full of thoughts, impressions and ways for you to easily let God into your every day.
As a reminder we are going through a few of my favorite devotional/ thoughts this week that can be found in the book Simple Steps for More Meaningful Prayer by Leigh Brown.
Ok, Here. We go. Today’s thought-
Elder Marvin J. Ashton stated, “Personal prayers are our own business, and nothing is too unimportant for God”. The lord cares about even our smallest concerns, and He desires to help us in both spiritual and temporal matters.
The prophet Alma counseled that the Saints should ask “for whatsoever things ye stand in need, both spiritual and temporal.” Likewise, Amulek taught, “cry unto God when ye are in your fields, yea, over all your flocks. Cry unto him in your houses, yea, over all your household, both morning, mid-day and evening.”
Sometimes we may worry that we weary heavenly Father with our prayers, or that a particular concern is too menial to trouble Him with. But He is anxious to be a part of our day-to-day lives.
Elder Bruce R. McConkie explained, “We are entitled and expected to pray for all things properly needed, whether temporal or spiritual”.
President Ezra Taft Benson observed that we must first ask before we can receive. “Sometimes we have not, because we ask not. Think of all the revelations that came to the prophet Joseph Smith because he was willing to ask the Lord about certain matters and needs”.
I really love this because I think it is one of Satan’s biggest tactics to get inside our head and make us feel unworthy to pray about certain things, or unworthy to ask for certain things. Where we have been instructed time and time again that we can and should ask for what we need and want. And that we are never unworthy to pray.
God is perfect. And he loves us perfectly. No matter what we do we will never be unable to reach God through prayer or unworthy to ask.
Satan is good at what he does, and he knows that it doesn’t take much for us, especially as women to start to doubt ourselves and question whether we are enough. Whether we deserve more. Or feel bad for even thinking about wanting more, or wanting to have our desires or questions answered.
So I encourage you, if you have felt like this at one point, which I think most of us have, or if you are finding yourself feeling like this now. Take a moment and really ponder where these thoughts are coming from, and if they are being driven by the adversary to make you feel like you can not show up to God and pray about whatever it is that is on your heart.
There truly is nothing too small, or unimportant to God if it is important to you.
For those of you that do have the Hear Him journal, Now would be the perfect time to pull that out and continue in more stillness, an open mind and a desire to connect with God.
Love you guys!
