Our Father, which art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name… This ‘chant’ is recited by most of us every day. Now, the story behind this was Jesus, teaching His Disciples to pray and as we know, it begins with ‘hallowed be Thy Name’. That means a whole lot.
Many people, when praying, fill their prayers with God I want…, God I need…, God give me…, God bless me with…, God do…, all just asking, asking, asking. Daily, we remember to ask God for our ‘Daily’ bread, but do we remember to give Him His? The major reason God created man was to fellowship with Him, to fill in the gap Lucifer left, to give Him praises, glory, honour, to worship Him and adore Him, and then the greatest privilege – to have a Father-child relationship with Him. But many of us, our relationship with God is more like President-Civilian. Send Him the petition, then wait, if He doesn’t answer when expected, look for another.
We as Christians are supposed to be God-chasers. There is nothing sweeter in this Christian race than having a personal relationship with The Trinity. We see a lot of examples in the Bible: Enoch (Gen 5:24), Abraham (Is 41:8), David (1Kings 15:3), Jesus (Matt 3:17).
It is much more better to have the water-pump, than to have a full drum of water because it would finish one day. In relating this to God, it is better to chase the Giver of the blessings and the blessings would follow than just the blessings without the Giver. "God is all you need to have all your needs met" (David Oyedepo).
God is waiting for you, would you accept His invitation?
