Nehemiah 1:11 “O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king’s cupbearer”
Nehemiah, already told God that He’s a covenant keeping and mercy providing God. He then went ahead to ask for mercy! God cannot deny Him mercy. Nehemiah simply put God on the spot.
1Samuel 17:46 “This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcases of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.”
It was exactly the same principle that David used here. David already knew that God delivers and fights for his people, so he simply asked Him to do it again. He knew that even if it is not on the schedule of God to come fight Goliath that day, He must do it because he already put Him on the spot.
The young man knew that God will not disgrace Himself. He got God committed to His covenant and promises. You must understand that dimension to your prayers.
The problem with many believers is that they are not even sure if what they are asking God is possible or not. They really don’t know what has been promised and what has not. They go fidgety to the place of prayers.
Their first thought is always, “What if it didn’t happen?” Well, there is nothing He has promised us that He will not do. He is not like your boss that has promised to raise your salary for the last one year and he’s now blaming COVID-19.
Friend, God is not a man, so He cannot lie but you must develop your spiritual intelligence to the level of knowing Him that much.
You can always get God committed to your course!
