God, Why Can’t I Find You?

God, Why Can’t I Find You?

“Hiddenness. God hides for a reason – so that He can develop you on the inside and train you to see with the eyes of faith. In manifestation, you can already see what God is doing. In hiddenness, you learn to look inward and recognize that God is still at work, relying purely on your faith.” Graham Cooke

Most of us don’t fully appreciate the times when God seems absent. We ask, “God, why can’t I find you?” We think we did something wrong or that God doesn’t care about us. We don’t fully grasp the true blessedness of this time. We always want God to manifest Himself to us. We want to experience and feel His presence. We want to feel good. We don’t like walking by faith instead of by sight.

If we don’t understand these times, we may miss out on all that God wants to do internally. This is God’s training ground. Understand that this is the time when God wants to teach you wisdom in the hidden place.

God is right now raising up strong and consistent intercessors who know how to pray whether He appears absent or present. They will not be shaken or faithless when He is hidden from their sight. They will know in their spirit that He is always there. They will take advantage of these times to grasp hold of wisdom in the inmost place. They know that in times of hiddenness they are able to process deep truth.

“Surely you desire truth in the inner parts; you teach me wisdom in the inmost place” (Psalm 51:6). 

This is a 7-minute teaching that will help you to understand times when God seems hidden or far away in your life. It is called: God, Why Can’t I Find You?

A Prayer to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness

A Prayer to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:1-2).

We live in a world that is filled with despair and hopelessness. If we were to admit it personally, there is not one of us who hasn’t had the enemy strike hard at us with feelings of despair at one time or other. We live in the world system, and we fight the devil on a daily basis. There is a battlefield of the mind where we wrestle against the powers of darkness. The enemy strikes hard with hopelessness and despair. It’s deep-seated and it’s everywhere – even within the body of Christ. The devil will scream in our ears, “You’re no good.” “God’s will for you is not good.” “Your situation is hopeless.” It’s hard to live in victory when we believe enemy lies.

It’s time to take charge of negative thinking. We have power to cast down all thoughts of despair and hopelessness. We do not have to be a captive to negative thoughts that lead to despair. We can renew our mind in God’s Word. It’s not by trying harder to change, but by seeing more clearly how God evaluates us.

This is a 5 1/2 minute teaching and prayer that will help you to overcome despair and negative feelings in your life. It is called: A Prayer to Overcome Despair and Hopelessness.

A Prayer to be Like Jesus in Humility

A Prayer to be Like Jesus in Humility

“The revelation of His glory includes seeing One so high (transcendence) who went so low (condescension) to bring us so near (redemption) because we are so dear (Bride). The Most High God went so low because of such great desire to partner with us… We are awestruck by His power, overwhelmed by His humility, and made confident by His love.” Mike Bickle

If we want to be people of prayer, we must learn to walk in the humility of Jesus. Jesus was humble. Perhaps this was His most outstanding characteristic. Imagine if you were God—equal with the Father, sharing glory with Him, having every privilege of being God—and then you became a man and laid aside all those privileges. “He is the image of the invisible God” (Colossians 1:15). Imagine becoming the servant of all and being God hidden in the obscurity of humanity.

It’s easy for us to say we’re humble and broken until the real test comes, and we are put in a humbling position. We wonder, “Why aren’t we recognized?” We react and don’t like it. We want to be important and are often so proud. But Jesus became nothing during His life on earth, and He gives us His example so that we may follow in His steps.

This 6-minute prayer and teaching will help you to grow in humility and be like Jesus. It is called: A Prayer to be Like Jesus in Humility.

A Breakthrough Prayer for Radical Faith

A Breakthrough Prayer for Radical Faith

“Our major concern is our faith—the problems of its growth and the actions of its strong development. A faith that holds onto the very things it asks for, without wavering, doubt, or fear—that is the faith we need. We need (radical) faith, like a pearl of great price, in the process and practice of prayer.” E. M. Bounds

Unbelievable things are happening all over the world. Reading the news headlines can be frightening and too close for comfort. If we want to be strong, we are going to need to have radical faith. We are going to have to believe when others fail in their beliefs. We are going to have to stand strong when others are wavering. We are going to have to be bold in believing God’s truth when we pray, even in the darkest of circumstances.

Faith is not just a small part of our life; it is central to all that we do. Expect the testing of your faith. God wants you to have radical faith and a radical prayer life, a faith without wavering, doubt, or fear. God wants you to believe His truth whenever you pray. We must face many crossing of the Red Sea experiences, if we want to see God-empowered breakthroughs. But it will be worth it in the end.

A Prayer for Knowing Your Identity in Christ

A Prayer for Knowing Your Identity in Christ

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness” (Jeremiah 31:3).

The most important questions in our life are questions about our identity. We ask ourselves, “Who am I? Why am I important? What is my worth?” We need God’s help in order to see our true identity. We need supernatural revelation to see ourselves the way He sees us so that we can do His will freely and fully. The great attack of the enemy will be who we are in Christ.

Jesus desires to unlock our heart to our true identity so that we might be fully alive in every dimension of life. He wants to come to our rescue and unlock the door to our destiny.
