From a Christian Perspective: God answers a prayer (This is HILARIOUS!)

From a Christian Perspective: God answers a prayer (This is HILARIOUS!)

God answers a prayer (This is HILARIOUS!)

This particular story just made me laugh. Every time I think about it, the vision of that poor cat just amuses me no end. Hope the story leaves a bright spot in your day. Whoever said the Creator doesn't have a sense of humor?

A fellow named Dwight Nelson recently told a true story about the pastor of his church.

He had a kitten that climbed up a tree in his backyard and then was afraid to come down. The pastor coaxed, offered warm milk, etc.

The kitty would not come down. The tree was not sturdy enough to climb, so the pastor decided that if he tied a rope to his car and pulled it until the tree bent down, he could then reach up and get the kitten.

That's what he did, all the while checking his progress in the car. He then figured if he went just a little bit further, the tree would be bent sufficiently for him to reach the kitten. But as he moved the car a little further forward, the rope broke.

The tree went "boing!" and the kitten instantly sailed through the air out of sight.

The pastor felt terrible. He walked all over the neighborhood asking people if they'd seen a little kitten. No. Nobody had seen a stray kitten. So he prayed, "Lord, I just commit this kitten to your keeping," and went on about his business.

A few days later he was at the grocery store, and met one of his church members. He happened to look into her shopping cart and was amazed to see cat food. This woman was a cat hater and everyone knew it, so he asked her, "Why are you buying cat food when you hate cats so much?"

She replied, "You won't believe this," and then told him how her little girl had been begging her for a cat, but she kept refusing. Then a few days before, the child had begged again, so the Mom finally told her little girl, "Well, if God gives you a cat, I'll let you keep it. "She told the pastor, "I watched my child go out in the yard, get on her knees, and ask God for a cat. And really, Pastor, you won't believe this, but I saw it with my own eyes. A kitten suddenly came flying out of the blue sky, with its paws outspread, and landed right in front of her."

Happy moments, praise God.
Difficult moments, seek God.
Quiet moments, worship God
Painful moments, trust God.
Every moment, thank God.

I thank you now Lord for the recent blessings I have received and for the blessings yet to come because I know you are not done with me yet. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen

Why do we spend our entire lives trying to get God to do things our way?

Are you're wrestling with God? Are you still trying to get him to do things your way?

people everywhere have the same basic problemWith God. He's God and we're not.

As you go before him in prayer do you desire his will and not yours or are you trying to influence God to submit to your will?

We want to change God. We want to change his mind, change how he treats us, and change his authority over us. We pray our hearts out hoping we can change the only unchangeable being in the universe. Millions of us spend our entire lives trying to get God to do things our way.

How is it that seem to think that we are so much more wise then the creator of all that exists? Why can't he just see the brilliance of our plans and desires?

We're convinced the problem is that God just isn't listening to us, but of course the truth is that we aren't listening to God. We don't want God or anybody else telling us what to do. We want to give the orders.

Sooner or later, we realize that our own authority is not trumping Gods authority.

Trusting that the Lord God loves us and will always make the best plans for our ultimate well being is really more difficult then it should be. Our self exaulting ego's Just don't want to believe and accept that it is God who has the final authority in all matters. If somehow, we could just let our Heavenly Father be the source of our lives without fighting him for control, We will find that life can be so much more satisfying.

Sure, we believe in God, but to allow him to run our life? That's asking a little too much if we can't let go of our need to be the boss in all matters that concern us. To relinquish control takes alot of humility and faith. I mean, come on, do we really believe that Gods plans are so unimportant that we should be able to convince him to change them to fit our idea of what he should do?

This is what I pray for, that I will quit trying to get in Gods way as he carry's out the amazing plans he has for me.
