WHERE WERE YOU JESUS WHEN I PRAYED!!
1) Jesus will NOT answer the prayer for something sinful or that is against His Word!
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.
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.
3) JESUS WAS READY TO ANSWER AND YOU CANCELED THE ANSWER AT THE THRESHOLD!
James 1:6-8, But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he isa double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
Matt. 21:21-22, So Jesus answered and said to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. 22 And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”
THE MAJOR BATTLE WHEN YOU ARE PRAYING IS STAYING IN FAITH.
When you pray in faith (faith is trust), which is asking the King for something you need, you MUST believe that He hears and that He will reward you.
Heb. 11:6, And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
WHEN DOUBT COMES INTO THE EQUATION, IF IT IS NOT REPELLED BY THE WORD THEN FAITH WILL BE SNATCHED. IF FAITH IS SNATCHED, SO IS YOUR REQUEST!
GUARD YOUR FAITH BY FEEDING ON THE WORD AND BEING AROUND FAITH FRIENDS.
