Let’s Be Unrealistic!

You’re never getting to a better place without being unrealistic in your prayer life. Faith is asking God for what is not yet reality. He invites you to call on Him and promises to show you great and mighty things that are not realistic yet (Jeremiah 33:3). Be bold and courageous in your asking even if it feels awkward at first. Your heart, your inner critic, and your circumstances may smirk at your audacious request, but God smiles at it. He loves it when His children dare their lips to ask for what their heart dreams. Your faith may quiver a little, and that’s ok. He remembers that you are human and will help you with the bits of unbelief mixed into your prayers (Mark 9:24). Remind yourself that He gave you the best He had when He gave His Son; why would He be stingy and begrudging of lesser things (Romans 8:32)? Reminisce about His resume’: He spoke the world into existence, drained a dry walking path at the bottom of the sea, fed thousands with a tiny amount of food, and came back from the dead. Do you really think you can request anything more unrealistic than these?

Write out your request and post it where you can see it often. Put it in code if you don’t wish anyone to see it, but write it, dream it, believe it, pray it! If He answers “no,” you lose nothing, and you can’t help but gain something better. Don’t risk missing out on a new reality because you are too scared to invite His power into your current one.

Be strong, be courageous, be unrealistic!

Welcome to Encouragement Outpost! My name is Dr. Georgia Pointer, a Christian writer who loves encouraging people in their relationship with Christ. I am a survivor of childhood rape and molestation, bullying, and emotional abuse. Negative thought patterns plagued me for many years until I learned to allow Christ and His Word to encourage and transform those thoughts. This background provides me with a passion to offer the same encouragement to anyone, not just abuse survivors, with the light of biblical truth that shines against the darkness of negativity, lies of the enemy, and daily struggles in living for Christ. I am a seminary graduate with a Masters in Christian Education. I also recently received my doctorate in Christian Counseling with a specialty in Family and Substance Abuse counseling. I served on staff for six years as a counselor at Moriah House of the Memphis Union Mission. I love the Word of God! I love studying it, teaching it, and speaking in public about it any chance I get. This blog, which I post about once a week, is my venue to share insights I glean. So, I invite you to subscribe to receive my weekly posts in your email and to share these posts with anyone you think might be encouraged by them.
