Dear Precious Friends,
What great encouragement we are receiving and how awesome that our Lord hears every single prayer and answers them. How do know this?
Because He has promised to hear them! Even if He doesn’t always answer the way we think He should, He still hears us. The Psalmist declared, “As for me, I call to God … and he hears my voice” (Psalm 55:16-17).
There are so many scriptures that remind us He hears every prayer, he collects every tear in a bottle, He knows the number of hairs on our heads.. He knew this virus was coming and He certainly got our attention...
As we are walking through this Corona Virus and slowly seeing things turn around as God has answered our prayers... we may wonder
Why then, does God sometimes seem deaf to our prayers? One reason may be because we’ve allowed sin to take root in our hearts—and sin always cuts us off from God. It may be anger, or hatred, or prejudice, or an unclean habit, or anything else that we’ve allowed to pollute our souls. This is why we need to make sure we’ve given our lives to Jesus Christ, because He came into the world to cleanse us of our sins. Have we given our life to Him? It's the most important decision we can make and it is the best decision....
"Yes", "No" "Wait"
OK... lets talk about God's answers to our prayers!!!
Often, however, God doesn’t answer our prayers the way we think He should because He loves us, and He knows what is best for us. It’s often been said that God answers prayer in one of three ways: “Yes”, “No”, and “Wait”—and it’s true. We see only part of the picture—but God sees the whole. This is why we must seek God’s will when we pray, and not just our own. The Bible says, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will … we have what we asked of him” (1 John 5:14-15).
Don’t be discouraged. Instead, thank God for His love for you, and learn to commit everything to Him in prayer. The Bible says, “Rejoice always, pray continually” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-17).
Let's be sure and Give our life to Christ today.
