Seeking God For 3 Days will get you results like this….

Here is an example of a prayer that God can answer when you make the time to seek Him for the next 3 days……It had been a prayer in passing, not one a person would expect an answer, I simply had a thought that got sent Heavenward while my mind was focused on something else. My husband and daughter had made the decision to follow God where He was leading us, so I took a job in Washington state. We didn’t have very much money and didn’t have any friends and didn’t know our way around. We had just got settled into our new home when I discovered that I needed to make dinner and did not have all of what I needed…. I never thought about how God answers prayers but here’s an example of how God answers when you “sincerely seek Him”.
I thought to myself, My wallet lay empty, only a few coins dropping from its pocket. And even if I’d had extra cash, transportation wasn’t an option. One vehicle was refusing to budge and our other car was with Bill out on the newly acquired property. Rummaging through the fridge, I produced a pound of hamburger that could stretch with a lot of casserole noodles. But to fill a spot on their dinner plates, a green vegetable would make the meal feel complete. I breathed a casual prayer, almost as an afterthought, as I mentally planned the evening’s menu.
“Lord, I need a green vegetable!” I said, my mind racing ahead to sprucing up our duplex before company arrived. About 45 minutes later, I heard knocking. Surely, they couldn’t have arrived yet; there was at least an hour to spare! But when I turned the latch and opened the door wide, there stood the only friend we’d made after our recent move.
“I was out in the garden and I started thinking about you and felt like I should drop by,” Sandy said as she clutched what looked like a homegrown spacecraft.”
There in her hands was the biggest zucchini I’d ever laid eyes on. And not only did this Pasco friend bring the huge vegetable, Sandy had fresh green beans, tomatoes and more in her car.

In that moment, I realized how God cares not only about our big worries, but also the little matters in our lives. And at the perfect time He answers, often far beyond what we could ever imagine. Seeking God is worth it…sometimes it’s not the amount of time you spend seeking God, it’s the sincerity of your heart and your total reliance upon Him to provide for you….
