Welcome back to my daily blogs everyone. It is as always my greatest pleasure to be writing these daily spiritual life lessons for you all to read. I kindly encourage you to read these spiritual lessons as often as you can, and as soon as it releases to read it right away too. I have had many blessings with these blogs and many people around the world have found great interest.
Todays blog is about God taking long to answer your prayer!
Many, many, many of us pray for something and at times it feels like forever. For example, when I prayed to God to help me build my wealth on earth so that I could take care of my family, it took me about one whole year before I received a message on what to do. Another example is when my father lost all of his wealth. He prayed to God for daily surviving. God granted us this everyday. Another time my father prayed for many people to get healed, and they were healed right away. Some at later times. Everything has a time!
We have to understand that we are not God. We don't decide when we want things to happen. That is in the hands of God.
Sometimes God doesn't answer straight away because of the iniquity of your sins. Sometimes God doesn't answer because he wants to test your faith!
Don't give up with prayer. Be persistent in your prayers!
I want to share a story with you that the Lord gave to me in a dream. It is about those who feel hopeless about their prayers and give up. If you have been or are in a situation like this, please, continue to listen and read.
This was the message:
There was two men in the dream. One in a small home and one in a mega mansion. He showed me the one in the small home first. The man in the small home looked poor. I saw him on his knees praying to the Lord saying, "Father in heaven, I have nothing left but you. I thank you that you have kept me for daily surviving. If it is your will for me to suffer, let me. But if I may have a taste of your great mercy, please, pour it on me. I promise you that I will not forget you, and I will not forget the poor." The man persisted in prayer for five years, and the Lord answered him. God was testing whether his prayer is real or fake. Whether he's praying only to receive or praying because he is sincere about his words. The man kept his promise.
The second man living in his mega mansion was praying everyday also. One day, he lost all of his wealth, family and friends. He had nothing left but a small home. The man prayed everyday for three years for the Lord to lift him and make him great again, but he didn't receive his answer. The man gave up with his prayers, threw out his chapel in his home, and stopped praying completely. A few days later, the Lord appeared to him in a dream. Jesus said to him, "You prayed for three years, and then you gave up. Why?" The man replied, "Because you didn't answer me. I was waiting so long, for three years, and you left me alone!" Jesus answered the man, "Did I leave you alone? Or did you leave me alone? Who provided you with food when you had nothing to eat? Who provided you with a shelter when everything was taken away from you? Who protected you from death when your enemies tried to harm you? Answer me. Who left who alone?" The man was silent. Jesus continued, "You didn't know that I was planning to give you what you asked the day after you stopped praying. If you only prayed for one more day I would have given you what you asked for." Then, the Lord left him. The man was left with sorrow. He continued his prayer routine again for another five years, and then he restored his wealth.
As you can see, prayer sometimes takes a long time to be answered. If you are praying for something good and it is God's will, it will be granted at the right time. If you are praying for evil upon someone, it is most likely not going to happen.
We must learn to love all people and come into communion with everyone. Although prayer can sometimes take long to be answered, it is important to be persistent and to never cease in prayer.
I also urge you to never only pray because you want something. Pray always! I know of too many people who pray only because they want the newest La Ferrari or a big mansion or to win the next lottery. Where are your prayers of thanksgiving?
Let us always remember to pray to the Lord at all times during every moment in life. The Lord loves us and wants to communicate with us. He speaks to us through prayer.
PRAY, PRAY, PRAY!!!
