Don’t think for a moment that God is deaf nor does he ignore your prayers. The trap the enemy sets for prayer warriors is called anxiety! Do you remember what the Israelites did in Exodus 32 when Moses was delayed in returning from the Mountain? Mooo….Mooo….that’s right, they substituted their God for a golden calf!! Phil 4:6-7, ‘teaches us not to worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell our God what we need, and thank him for all he has already done. Then we will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard our hearts and minds as we live in Christ Jesus.’ Think about it; when was the last time God didn’t respond to your prayer request? He may not have given you what you ‘thought’ you wanted but he gave you what he wanted for your good and his glory! Beloved of God, when we prayer, we must humble ourselves like little children and put on no airs of self-sufficiency, but run happily into the joy of our Father’s embrace because the glory of his grace is magnified and the longing of our souls are satisfied when our focus and his glory become one. So don’t fall for ‘the banana in the tail pipe’!! Place your peace in God himself and discover the glorious truth that God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him!!
