Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. – Psalms 27:14 NIV
We don’t like to wait. We don’t like waiting in lines at the DMV, and we don’t always want to wait patiently as the Lord answers our prayers.
The Lord is worth the wait. Even though it may seem like He didn’t answer us, He is working in the background in mysterious ways.
We can trust that He will always give us the answer. Amen.
Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. – Jeremiah 29:12 NIV
The Lord hears our prayers. He is our best friend. He is our Counselor. He is our Savior.
When we are unsure what the future holds, we simply need to pause and ask Him for guidance. Sometimes the answer comes right away. Other times we need to take action in the right direction before we begin to understand where He is leading us.
The Lord does not make mistakes. He will never lead us down the wrong path. He is here for us always. Amen.
As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him: Rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. – Colossians 2:6-7 KJV
When the Lord answers a prayer that has been weighing on our hearts, we can be thankful! Our faith in Him grows stronger as we walk with Him, talk to Him in prayer, and meditate on His Word.
Walking in faith gives us roots, so that when storms come, we are not shaken. Our faith makes us stronger.
When the things of this world threaten to tear us down, the Lord builds us up. He teaches us how to love and models good behavior for us. He loves us more than life itself.
We have many things to be thankful for, because the Lord answers prayers. Amen.
When I am afraid, I will trust in you. – Psalm 56:3 NIV
I received a message from my sister yesterday that our mother had fallen in her yard and hit her head. My sister texted me from the Emergency Room that they were waiting on CT results.
The news hit me like a lightning bolt through the heart. I could feel fear creeping in, but I immediately began to pray, asking Jesus to help. I sent an email to my church family and asked them to pray as well.
God answers our prayers, and He does so quickly sometimes! I received a call from my sister and talked to my mom. My mom has a bump on her head, but the CT came back normal and there was no internal bleeding. She was at my sister’s house, and the doctor had recommended that she be woken up every two hours. She would not be able to drive or stay home by herself for a while, but God answered our prayers, and she is okay. God is good! Amen.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. – Matthew 6:33-34 NIV
God answers prayers! When His answer is, “yes,” sometimes we are surprised, because we are so worried that the worst case scenario will play out anyway, we expect bad news.
When good news comes to us, we can rejoice in the Lord’s blessings and enduring mercy.
I spoke to my friend who had COVID-19. He is doing much better and is out of the hospital. I was so worried, but the Lord restored and strengthened him, just as all of us praying for him had asked. Hearing my friend’s voice encouraged me and reminded me how powerful our living God is. He is good. Amen.
