Wonder Why Your Prayers Aren't Being Answered?
I felt led of the Lord to share with you what I have experienced with the Lord in the 30 years I've known Him. I pray with all my heart this helps someone.
Have you waited and waited for GOD to answer something pretty critical to your physical, mental, emotional, and/or spiritual well-being; or, all of the above, and you have prayed and obeyed everything you know to do, still with no visual results?
Or, do you find yourself praying the same thing every time the same situation arises, knowing it has got to be GOD’s will you are praying, only to not be heard AGAIN?
If I regard iniquity in my heart, GOD will not hear me. That is, If GOD is pointing out something to me, but I am ignoring His leadership, or paying no attention to it, “GOD will not hear me.”
You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures. James 4:3. There have been times I have waited on GOD to answer my prayer when He wouldn’t answer, and wouldn’t answer. I said to the Lord, “I’m getting really frustrated, not at You Lord; but I am not understanding something, what is it please? Why aren’t You answering?” The minute I asked Him, He said, “Because you’re asking Me to do it for you, not because it will please Me, but You want Me to make you comfortable.”
For instance, you pray and ask GOD to remove someone from your life who is “bad company” and who could cause you to stumble and displease the Lord. Or else you ask Him to move you on, yet the next time the opportunity presents itself, there that person is. You have prayed for strength to endure, and everything else you can think of.
Isaiah 58:6-9 (for lack of room, I won't put the first part, but hope you read it:) .....then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’
Also Proverbs 4:4- 8 He also taught me, and said to me: “Let your heart retain My words;
The Lord said to me, “You are wanting Me to do that for you; when you won’t do what I say. If you will…, I will…..”
Beautiful promise from GOD to us: I asked the Lord and He showed me what has been hindering my blessing. Ask Him what it is, seek Him, and ask Him for His sake, for wisdom and understanding. “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her.” Amen.
