WHERE WAS JESUS WHEN I PRAYED AND NOTHING HAPPENED?
We covered yesterday that you cannot pray against the will of God (opposite of what the Bible says) and expect anything.
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.
GOD WILL NEVER ANSWER YOUR PRAYER IF IT IS SIN!
2) There are times that God does not answer our prayer in the way we want to PROTECT US from a situation we cannot see.
Acts 16:6, And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia.
The men of God wanted to preach Jesus in Asia, what could be wrong with that? Yet, the Holy Spirit forbid them to go. That is not the answer they were looking for, but who knows what danger was ahead of them that would have hindered their lives rather than help the Gospel.
One day we were looking to buy a building for His Tabernacle in our town. We looked at this building that was an old church and it was selling for cheap. We actually prayed and bid on it for $30,000 and told the town we would keep it on the tax roll. The town owned the building and the bids were sealed (small town though so everyone knew what was happening). The town sold the building to a local business man for $15,000, half of our bid!
THANK YOU JESUS!!! IT HAD AND STILL HAS SO MANY PROBLEMS. IT WOULD HAVE EATEN UP GOD’S MONEY AND SPIT IT OUT.
We would not be where we are today if God had answered our prayer the way WE wanted.
TRUST THAT JESUS HAS YOUR BEST INTEREST, BECAUSE…….HE DOES!
**This does not apply if what you are praying for what was purchased on the Cross**
