Do we become doubtful, bitter, and ready to give up when our prayers appear to go unanswered? Yes. Sometimes we do . . .
We want answers to conform to our wishful thinking and demanding moment. We don’t get what we designed and ordered, so God must not be there.
I’ve asked for many things that came in different forms because obviously the Father had something better up His sovereign sleeve.
It’s then we need to yield to the holy and wise.
I’ve seen miracles when people were raised up from lifeless postures, and have heard yes, no, wait, but never I can’t . . . It may not be a matter of waiting, but a matter of God’s timing.
I had a great dad, a flawed father, who loved me and provided well. If I was hungry he wouldn’t eat before me and serve me a bone. Good fathers don’t give bad gifts to their children.
We can’t chew a stone and a venomous answer that brings harm is not in the Father’s nature. He gives generously to His believing children.
If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him. Matthew 7:11
How often have we asked our Father in heaven for a custom made miracle and instead received something different or opposite? We call it a stone too hard to swallow or a hissing fish.
We need to recognize it for what it is. Good, best, and perfect.
I praise Him for not answering some of the amazing requests I’ve made. I was asking for the pretty picture. He was looking at the big picture.
The heavenly surpasses the earthly that rusts and fades.
Do your prayers match your belief?
Remember, we receive little because we ask little. We need to make our prayers God-sized and pray high to the Most High.
We are only one prayer away from a miracle . . . so let’s ask, seek, and knock believing our Father is on the way to the door.
Ask, and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened. Matthew 7:7,8
