Today, I was on FaceBook reading an article and I noticed on the sidebar an advertisement for Essie Nail Polish. The first thing that came to my mind was a memory of a prayer that God answered for me.
As I reminisced over my answered prayer I thought about how nice it is to have special memories like that –ones that remind me of how the Lord will even supply my silly little requests. I don’t think God really cares if my nails are painted or not – but He showed me that He cares about me and the things that I take the time to ask Him for. I know this is true because Jesus told us so in many instances, but especially in John 14:13, 14 which says, “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”
I am certain that the Lord loves to hear us pray to Him. He told us He wants us to abide in Him, after all He created us for Himself – “all things were created by him, and for him:” Colossians 1:16. So today ladies I encourage you to ask what you will… “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” Abide in the Lord, let His Words abide in you, and then ask what ye will and He promises that it shall be done unto you!
I love having sweet little reminders of God’s answered prayer for even the littlest things – because to me they show me all the more that He cares for me, little ole me and my silly little quirks...and He does for you too!
Have a wonderful day!
