Confuse What’s Confusing You!

Ever have a situation in which you were confused and the more you talked about it, meditated on it and even as you prayed about it, the more confused you became?!!

The truth of the matter is, whenever you are

 really confused about something, your prayers will not help your confusion. Now I know that may sound… er… well… uh…. “confusing”, but it’s not really. When you pray in your human language, the bible refers to that as “praying in your understanding”. This means that the prayers that you offer up are prayed according to your own limited insight of the situation, and uh, HELLO – we just established that you are confused! You don’t have clear insight, you are praying with the same confused mind that can’t figure out the situation to begin with. So what do you do to break the bands of confusion? Look at 1 Samuel 7:9-10,

”9 And Samuel took a suckling lamb and offered it as a whole burnt offering to the LORD. Then Samuel cried out to the LORD for Israel, and the LORD answered him. 10 Now as Samuel was offering up the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to battle against Israel. But the LORD thundered with a loud thunder upon the Philistines that day, and so confused them that they were overcome before Israel.“

Samuel did not try to pray a deep, theological and impressive prayer. The enemy was approaching quickly and the people were in danger and didn’t know what to do. Samuel worshiped – he offered up burnt offerings – he worshiped. After he worshiped he simply cried out for help. He didn’t tell God how to help him, or what to do; he just humbly cried out for the sufficiency of God’s mighty deliverance and God answered him – not with words of instruction – but by confusing the enemies of Israel.

STOP PRAYING AND START WORSHIPING! Only through worship can you enter into His presence, where there is NO confusion. In times of confusion, don’t let pride, or your obsession to be in control of everything, hinder you. Praise and worship the King of Kings and let Him confuse what is confusing you!
