Do you ever argue with God? Yesterday, I had a young man sitting in my kitchen whose dad gave us an estimate for some minor repairs. He had just had his eyes dilated and was having a hard time seeing, so he sat down while his dad met with my husband. He was super quiet, but I made him talk to me and tell me what was going on with his eyes. He told me he had surgery a while back to correct a lazy eye, but now he is having trouble seeing. Here is where the argument with God ensued; I heard him tell me to go and pray for him. Though it should be natural for me, I find it hard to open myself up to rejection. However, when God wants you to do something, he makes an excellent case, so there’s no point in arguing; just get up and do it! Imagine that; he was receptive and allowed me to pray for him. Was this a challenge to get me out of my comfort zone, or was I planting a seed for a later harvest? I’m sure of neither, but I was obedient to do what God told through the nudging of the Holy Spirit. Will his eye be healed? I have no clue; that’s up to God, but I did my part, and at that moment, the young man got to experience the presence of God through my obedience.
No unbelief made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised. Romans 4:20-21
