So many times we pray for The Lord Jesus Christ to give us our needs or to help us and then nothing happens. This becomes very discouraging and or Faith suffers. The Lord Jesus Christ can not interfere in your life or pursuits unless you give the entire situation completely over to Him. You must let go of it completely. He will never interfere in any thing in your life against you will. Living by Faith means a total Trust in The Lord Jesus Christ in His Word and as your Lord to watch over you!
