The bible says that faith without works is dead and I have come to believe this truth. For years I  wanted to quit drinking alcohol. Drinking wasn’t really a ‘problem’ for me —or least that’s what I told myself to justify the habit. 

However with all of the justification in the world, it became clearer and clearer that indulging in alcohol was not serving me or the person that I desired to be. I really wanted to stop. But alcohol was all around me and was normally a key player at any social function. Craft cocktails at date night, unlimited mimosas at brunch and my favorite full bodied cabernet as I Netflixed and Chilled were staples. It seemed too hard to quit on my own so I prayed about it. 

🙏🏽 My prayer was simple….Lord please remove the taste of alcohol from my mouth.

In my mind, if God would just take away the desire, I would be all good. I wanted Him to fix it, and fix me without me having to do any work. 

Have you ever experienced the same? Desperately wanting a situation to change but not wanting to go through the pain of doing the work. Just wanting Jesus to come in and fix it because we know He can. 

I’ve prayed similar prayers for my business. 

🙏🏽 Lord please send me buyers…but I don’t want to do the work of making calls.

🙏🏽 Lord help me sell more homes in my neighborhood…but I don’t want to do the work of getting to know my neighbors. 

🙏🏽 Lord give me the words to say to potential clients…but I’m too busy to practice and role play. 

🙏🏽 Lord please put me in the right rooms to learn…but I’m not willing to invest in that knowledge

Too often we come to God with a laundry list of requests but unwilling to put in the work to see his Glory revealed in our lives. 

So today, take a look at the things that you are asking and desiring of God and ask yourself honestly—Am I doing the work? Am I doing all that I can do so that God can do a work through me?

The Holy Spirit will answer you and help you take the next steps. 

And by the way, God has removed the taste for alcohol from my mouth and I haven’t had a drink in over 100 days. But first I had to come into obedience and do the work of denying myself so that I could see his Glory revealed and this prayer to be answered.

If he did it for me, he will do it for you too. But you have to put in the work!
