WHEN YOUR PRAYERS ARE NOT ANSWERED

January 13, 2018

In my life I have prayed prayers and they have not been answered in the way I wanted them to be and I am sure that this has happened to everyone that has experienced life on this earth. This our reality.

Sometimes this unanswered prayer resulted in a painful lost and the grief that was experienced appeared overwhelming. In the midst of this situation also came questions of “why.” As I previously stated this is a common experience of humans that live on earth. This is an experience that happens on a daily basis; so, what can we do about it. My answer was to find comfort in the Word. Scriptures flooded my mind and I took solace in them. So. Let me share some of them with you on today in hopes that they will also comfort you and provide direction during your times of unanswered prayers.

First and foremost is to know that God is thinking of you as stated in Psalm 139:7, “How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!”

Secondly, God’s ways of doing things are different than ours as found in Isaiah 55:8, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”

Additionally, despite our disappointments God does a plan for our life as stated in Psalms 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.”

Finally, in this life we receive and we lose but we are admonished to remain consistent in our blessing, thanking and praising of God as declared in these scriptures.
“The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job1:21b
“I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1
“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” 1Thessalonians 5:18

I pray this has helped you on today; be encouraged and strengthened in the Lord.
