It can’t function as it was designed. People may even think it is broken. But it is not. It’s just unplugged.
When we pray and obey God we are plugged. Some have a battery that allows them to operate unplugged for a while, but as soon as we lose focus, we unplug.
The only way God can bless you is if you (or someone else on your behalf) is plugged in. Praying, obeying with thanksgiving and faith.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Philippians 4:6 NIV
Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.
Joshua 1:8 | NIV
I was walking on the beach last year and God gave me a vision of a puddle of sea water on the sand. We are the puddle that dries out fast. God is the sea. The tide is prayer. He asked me to make this little video so I could understand the power of prayer.
I hope that helps you too.
Next week we will talk about prayer.
