A Traumatic Tragedy – Praying To The God You Don’t Believe In

Praying to the God you don’t believe in, is one of the worst things you can ever imaging. People who pray to the God they don’t believe in waste their time and energy in a fruitless exercise.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Heb. 11:6 (NKJV)

“And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” Jer.29:13 (NKJV)

The Scripture says that those who go to God (for anything), must believe that God exists and that he rewards (helps) people who call on him for help. That is the fundamental principle in seeking God. The second one is that those seeking God must be focused and committed to it. There are no half measures.

There are a lot of challenges confronting people every day ranging from the most basic things like health, food, water, housing to ostentatious life-style. There are relationship challenges and economic pressures driving people “mad” on constant basis; these things push people to seek for help from others and from God. Challenges of life are common to all, including kings and nobles. (Daniel 2). (See my article “Someone to interpret your dream”.) I believe that no person is stupid because they are going through challenges of life. Those who run to God for help in their time of need are blessed.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.” Jer. 17:7 (NKJV)

“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Ps.34:8 (NKJV)

He shall regard the prayer of the destitute, and shall not despise their prayer.” Ps. 102:17 (NKJV)

Praying to the God you don’t believe in or who you don’t trust to help you is a dishonour to God and weariness to the soul. Time is very important; you can never recover lost time; in that sense, time is life. Prayer requires energy and concentration; praying to the God you don’t believe in is a waste of energy. It ends up in frustration. It is a tragedy.

Granted that there are people who are confused and traumatised when they are in trouble and runs to and fro looking for solutions, there are many people who are in church, who doubt God. They attend church services and prayers meetings but don’t really believe in God as a rewarder of those who diligently seek him. There are many people who are in church today who don’t delight in God’s words or his ways – it is difficult to figure out what they are seeking for. The scripture says:

“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” Ps.34:4-5 (NKJV)

God loves you and wants to help you. God wants to be your friend and his demands are not grievous, it is important that all who comes to God must believe there is God, they should trust in his grace and goodness. Jesus loves you.

Hearing from God – Visions and Dreams

One thing I want us to know is that it is important to God that we hear and understand him. It is not just important to us as humans but it is also important to him. What does that mean? It means that you should relax and let this happen without struggles. I know many people are bothered with this “hearing from God thing”, but there is no need to be uneasy about it.

Jesus said “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” John 10:27. (NKJV)

“And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.” John 10:16 (NKJV)

The scripture say “So when the Lord saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!”

And he said, “Here I am.”

Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God.

And the Lord said: “I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey, to the place of the Canaanites and the Hittites and the Amorites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites. Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” Exodus 3:4-10 (NKJV).

You might have noticed that in Exodus 3:4-10, Moses was going about his own business when God appeared and spoke to him. He was not doing any “religious thing” in any form. What God told him was primarily God’s business. God has a business to do and wants people who will listen and obey him, in order to accomplish his task.

I want us to look at “hearing from God – visions and dreams dimensions.” God uses pictures to speak to us. It is these pictures that are described as visions and dreams. Visions are messages revealed in pictures. People normally see visions while they are awake or partially awake. It may or may not come with a voice.

Genesis 15:1 Says “After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” (NKJV)

Numbers 24:4 says of Balam; “The utterance of him who hears the words of God, Who sees the vision of the Almighty, Who falls down, with eyes wide open:” (NKJV)

Psalm 89:19 says “Then You spoke in a vision to Your holy one, And said: “I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people.” (NKJV)

Dreams are almost the same things as visions but they take place while we are asleep. When we wake up we can recollect the pictures and voices; there had been instances where people forgot the dreams and the messages. This is very unfortunate; if it happens, you must take it up in prayers.

Job 33:14-16 says “For God may speak in one way, or in another, Yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, While slumbering on their beds, Then He opens the ears of men, And seals their instruction.” (NKJV)

There are three dimensions of “dream”; there is the dream that comes out of daily activities. People carry on with their lives while asleep. For example, there are people who shout “Goal” as if they are playing or watching a football game while asleep.

There is dream that I want to classify as nightmare. These dreams are horrifying and wearisome. They come from the enemy to frighten their victims. They are full of bad messages. If left unrestrained, they can become realities. If you are experiencing this type of dream, you must pray against it. Any time they occur, pray and cancel it, in Jesus name.

Then there are the visions of the night. God sends a message to a person while asleep. Remember, God can show you what he wants. However God does not terrify his people. He does not frighten his children.

I had some issues with this when I was young. God spoke to me often through the visions of the night. when read from Joel 2:28-29 ““And it shall come to pass afterward That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your old men shall dream dreams, Your young men shall see visions. And also on My menservants and on My maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.” (NKJV) I did not understand why I had “dreams” as a young person. I took it up in prayers and the Lord told me that, that was not the whole meaning of that scripture. It was then he told me that what happened to me were the visions of the night and showed me this verse in Job 33:14-16.

Visions and dreams could become intricate to many people; there are people who run around looking for interpreters of dreams and visions. I have learnt to keep it simple. God will not tell me things that are too mysterious to understand if he expects me to obey him. Don’t get me wrong, there have been times that God told me of future events that I didn’t understand; in such instances, I took time to pray and he revealed more things to me. In some instance, he told me it was just for information (this may seem strange to some people but as you walk closely to God, you will discover this truth).

Don’t forget, those who desire to hear from God must commit themselves to him. They must pray always and study the Bible.
