Yes, God answers prayer but not always the way you expect Him to. Here’s what I need you to understand. Answers don’t always come in the size, shape and color you think they will come. Example: the husband you asked God for might live in another country. He might not be the race you expect him to be. Are you ready to receive that? Are you willing to live in another country, in another culture?
Are you open to God’s solutions or are you too busy holding on to where you are, what you have, what you believe. God might be leading you to take another job but you are holding on to your current position. Maybe you don’t want to give up your seniority and the comfort zone that develops from working with the same people and carrying out the same tasks every day.
I held onto a job position even after God told me to seek Him about moving on through a prophecy spoken during a church meeting. Another time, I was on the fourth floor of a building owned by my employer. As I waited for a Bible Study to begin, a voice inside me screamed, “I want to be out there!” I was shocked and reasoned away the voice. I now know the Lord was trying to get my attention. Remember that common saying “Let go and let God?” There are times when you and I must let go so that we can make room for God’s wisdom and understanding.
You might not be open to God and you might not be ready for what He has for you. For instance, do you trust God for financial increase? How are you handling your current finances? God is not going to give you more if you are mismanaging what you already have. The Lord showed me a long time ago that if I couldn’t manage $10, I’d never handle $1,000,000. That $1,000,000 would slip through my fingers as easily as $10 if I didn’t have the right mentality towards money.
Yes, God does answer prayer. Do you really want Him to answer yours? Of course you do. You are serious about your faith and you want to be open and ready for what God has for you. Even if that answer doesn’t come the way you expect, He will never leave you disappointed. So, talk to Him about this matter today.
