One of the most frustrating things since becoming a Christian is when I pray from my heart and nothing happens. Sometimes, people get discouraged in life because things didnâ€™t turn out the way they hoped on the first try. Maybe they put energy into a relationship, but it didnâ€™t work out. They tried that new business venture, but they are still struggling with their finances.
Now they think itâ€™s never going to happen. But one thing we have to learn is that God honours perseverance. On the way to your â€œyes” you may encounter some â€œnoâ€™s.â€ You may encounter some closed doors, but that doesnâ€™t mean itâ€™s the final answer. It just means â€œkeep going.â€
Today, rest assured if God promised it, Heâ€™s going to bring it to pass. Through faith and patience, we inherit Godâ€™s promises. This is where patience comes in; this is where perseverance comes in. This is where trust comes in. Just because you donâ€™t see things happen right away, doesnâ€™t mean you should quit. No, instead, rise up and press forward. Keep believing, keep hoping, keep enduring and keep asking, because our God is always faithful to His Word!
“Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.”(Matthew 7:7, NLT)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for being a faithful God. Father, I believe Your Word and trust Your promises. Please remove my frustration when it seems like Youâ€™re deaf to my request. I wonâ€™t stop asking, I will keep standing, keep believing and keep asking with patience and perseverance, knowing that I will receive what You have promised, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
