We know that in many ways God saves and protects people in the Bible by a hedge. In the times of need we always find ourselves praying for things to be taken, or things to change. We are always trying to find a way to change the situation. Yet in my discoveries as I prayed I find that changing the situation is not what is needed. The situation is what is going to make me learn, grow and have experience. Now the condition of the situations is different. I can have to go through something and the condition (timing) can be almost unable to bare. This is where I need to find dependency on God.Thus the reason why I am suppose to count it joy under various trials. So if it is not the situation I need to pray about then praying on my conditions is what can help me trust and bare everything. God says in His word He is always with us, He will never leave nor forsake us. God also says through the trials it will produce patience that it produces its perfect work. So what do we pray for? Conditions! You see if we begin to set up road blocks and change the conditions, it can change the perspective of how we see everything. The road blocks are formed by our faith in Him and Our prayers to Him. A hedge is quite like that road block I am referring to.What is a Hedge?
A hedge can be a fence or boundary formed by closely growing bushes or shrubs, but mostly likely when we are talking about God those bushes and shrubs are probably angels of fire that limits anything near the subject by conditions or exceptions. It could be People, friends and church members that step in at the timing of the situation which changes everything. The thing that holds me back the most is not that I do not believe He can do great things, Its that I want to control the situation. I want to show God that I got it, I m strong praise God right? What If God is not asking you to go through it for you, but for Him so that He can be seen through your faith and dependence on Him?
If God has before called before a hedge of protection then the same can be asked of us. God is forever the same yesterday and today. He is God of Israel, The Almighty Everlasting Father, YHWY, I AM. God wants to do mighty things through you and for you. He wants followers that knows His abilities and we can only receive those things by asking Him and trusting Him.
Imagine God has you going through a test and trial that God himself has to let you go through in order to have experience in a certain area so that He can use you later for that very purpose you encountering. So be encouraged! Our prayers are heard. Our prayers are mighty. Our prayers bring God down. Our prayers a delightful. Our Prayers bring the protection and hedges in our lives. God hears you! Psalms 17:6, Psalms 66:19, Hebrews 11:6, Psalms 34:15, Psalms 65:2, Proverbs 15:29
Everything that happens to us by the way we respond to things. It can be the best thing in the world yet if you we are not grateful we see past it. Missing the blessing and the moment of receiving. Likewise with bad things, we respond negatively and miss the opportunity to see God do mighty things before. He asks us to seek and knock. He says call upon the name of the Lord He shall reveal mighty and mysterious things to us. The ending question is are you willing to ask Him the creator those questions.
