Do you have any prized possessions kept in a safe place? God does.
So what does the God of the universe, the star-breather, the universe maker, store away? Our prayers. Shocked? Revelation 5:8 says,
"And when he had taken it, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people."
God stores our prayers in bowls! And not just any bowls either- golden bowls! They are precious to Him. They are a sweet fragrance, a special incense. God loves our prayers because God loves us. No problem is too big for Him and no concern is too small. He cares about it all! If you are facing difficult circumstances today, let me remind you of a prophet named Elisha.
Read: 2 Kings 6:8-17
Now read verse 17 again.
Elisha, could see beyond his negative situation. He knew God would never leave him alone. Though you may be surrounded by difficulties today, know that God is bigger. He cares so much about you that He keeps your prayers stored away!
