It’s a great day. This is your #DailyGraceCapsule (A Daily Devotional) for today October 17th 2017.
THE WEIGHT OF PRAYER.
A poorly dressed lady walked into a grocery store. She approached the owner of the store in and asked if he would let her charge a few groceries. “Please, sir! I will bring you the money just as soon as I can." The grocer told her he could not give her credit, as she did not have a charge account at his store. Another customer walked forward and told the grocer that he would stand good for whatever she needed for her family.
Put your grocery list on the scales and whatever your grocery list weighs, I will give you that amount in groceries the grocer said reluctantly. The woman reached into her purse and took out a piece of paper and scribbled something on it. She then laid the piece of paper on the scale.
The eyes of the grocer showed amazement when the scales went down and stayed down. The grocer started putting the groceries on the other side of the scales. The scale did not balance so he continued to put more and more groceries on them until the scales would hold no more. The grocer stood there in utter disgust.
Finally, he grabbed the piece of paper from the scales and looked at it with greater amazement. It was not a grocery list; it was a prayer which said: "Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands." The grocer gave her the groceries that he had gathered and placed on the scales and stood in stunned silence. She thanked him and left the store. The customer handed a fifty-dollar bill to John as he said, "It was worth every penny of it." Simple, childlike faith in God when we have totally run out of alternatives will always deliver in prayers.
Point to ponder: - Dear Lord, you know my needs and I am leaving this in your hands.
Verse to remember: - “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 1 Peter 5:7 [NLT]
Question to consider: - What have you cast unto the Lord in prayers?
Declaration: - God is my Father and I am His beloved child.
