Our Daily Bread
God Incidents


In the normal course of providence, God works in and through
creation, not despite it. For this reason, some answers to prayer are
difficult to prove with certainty.
“Only faith vouches for the
connection,” C. S. Lewis writes. “No empirical proof could establish
it.” We believe a prayer has been answered not because of any scientific
criteria proving it, but because we have faith.
Most of the ways
we encounter God—nature, the Bible, the Lord’s Supper, the church, other
people—include things we can touch. God’s own state, though, is the
realm of spirit. Prayer reflects that difference between us.
Although
we may ask God to intervene directly, it should not surprise us if He
responds in a more hidden way in cooperation with our own choices. An
alcoholic prays, “Lord, keep me from drink today.” The answer to that
prayer will likely come from the inside—from a stiffening resolve or a
cry for help to a loyal friend—rather than from some marvel like the
magical disappearance of liquor bottles from a cabinet.
Whether
God supernaturally intervenes or is giving us the power to obey Him, we
trust His character. We see a true partnership, intimate and
intertwined. — Philip Yancey


Help me to walk aright,
More by faith, less by sight;
Lead me with heavenly light—
Teach me Thy way. —Ramsey

An important part of praying is a
willingness to be part of the answer.
