HAVE YOU EVER QUESTIONED WHERE GOD WAS IN YOUR SITUATION?
You prayed and nothing seemed to happen….
You became frustrated and seemed to give up!
The first thing to realize is that if you are not washed by the blood of Jesus He is not obligated to help you. Many people do not like to hear that, but that is so powerfully true. You would not have a stranger come to your house and ask for money or for you to do something for them. You might be kind and lend a helping hand, but what would you do if they started yelling at you, condemning you because you did not do enough for them?
WE EXPECT GOD TO DO WHATEVER WE WANT EVEN IF WE ARE NOT ONE OF HIS CHILDREN! Jesus will, out of grace, touch people, but many get mad at Him because He does not do as much as they desire.
If you are one of His babies then you are in an amazing position!!
“Pastor, I prayed and nothing happened like I was expecting.”
There are some questions that need to be investigated.
1) Is what you are praying the will of God? Are you asking the Lord to do something that is against His Word?
I have had people pray for a baby and they were not married!
I have had people pray for a boyfriend or girlfriend that was not saved!
I have had people pray for divorce!
I have had people pray to be disabled…….oh my!
YOU CANNOT PRAY FOR SOMETHING THAT IS NOT BIBLICAL AND THINK YOU WILL GET AN ANSWER!
IF YOU PRAY FOR SOMETHING THAT IS NOT BIBLICAL, THE ANSWER WILL BE “NO.”
1 John 5:14-15, Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
