He Hears!

Have you ever prayed—poured out your hear to God—and waited for an answer but it feels as if no one is listening? I think we all have felt that way at some point in our lives.

No matter what you are praying for, sometimes if feels as if God just isn’t responding to your needs. But He is. . .God will always answer prayers. It just may not be the way we want Him to.

Sometimes God delays answering our prayers to strengthen our faith.

As humans, we want to fix things ourselves. It’s hard to admit we are helpless.  

James 1: 2-6 says, My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

Maybe there is some hidden sin in our lives that we are clinging to.

God knows about it and sin separates us from Him.

1 John 1:9 says, If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Sometimes God doesn’t answer our prayers because they do not align with His will for our lives.

Just because we feel what we are praying for is right for us, doesn’t mean God does. He might have something far better for us in mind. God sees things that we don’t. He only wants what is best for us.

Jeremiah 29:11 says, For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Maybe the timing isn’t right.

God’s timing is always perfect even when we don’t understand it. Continue to pray and wait on Him. Sometimes it takes days or weeks. And sometimes it may take more than fifty years for Him to answer. But know this. He will answer!  

Psalm 123:2 says, But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Wait on the Lord. Ask him to reveal anything that is keeping you separated from Him. And keep praying!

All the best. . .

    I think that, this was amazing! it’s true, God has many reasons as to why he might not answer our prayers immediately. Sometimes he says no, sometimes he says yes but to wait. Either way, we must confide that God is the one who is completing his promises and not us. May God bless you!
