Pact with God

Have you ever tried making a pact with God? One day when I was in high school, I was driving home wondering if something that I was doing was inappropriate. I had never heard anyone say specifically that this thing was or wasn't so I was pondering it. Just then my 1981 Jeep CJ 7 died. I pulled off to the side of the road and tried turning the ignition a few times and nothing, the car wouldn't start. I said a little prayer and said something like this: Heavenly Father, if you want me to stop doing this thing, then please make my car start, and I will never do it again. I finished my prayer and my car started, and I knew that I was heard.
I challenge you, if there is something in your life that you know you shouldn't be doing, make a deal with God that you will stop doing it if He will bless you in some way. Or if there is something that you know that you should be doing, that you will start doing it if He will bless you in some way. I promise that He hears our prayers and blesses us as we strive to follow Him!
