The Answer is on the Way – S2E6

Prayer–some people believe in the power of it, while others don’t. Are you one of the many people who incorporate prayer in your everyday life? If so, I’m sure there were times when it seemed as if the answer to your prayer was a resounding ‘no’. Because the answer didn’t happen when you wanted it to. In episode 2, Lady V and I discussed the different reasons for that happening. 

Lean not on your own understanding 

Now, the question for some people then becomes “Why pray if I don’t get the answer I want?” Unfortunately, that’s when the feeling of giving up on prayer and God takes hold. Especially, to those individuals in desperate situations. 

Well, let’s see what the Word of God says about it. Thus, Proverbs 3:5-6 The Passion Translation says, “5 Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make. 6 Become intimate with him in whatever you do, and he will lead you wherever you go.” 

This is to say, we don’t always know what’s best for us but God sees the big picture. Also, Philippians 4:6-7 The Passion Translation says,  

“6 Don’t be pulled in different directions or worried about a thing. Be saturated in prayer throughout each day, offering your faith-filled requests before God with overflowing gratitude. Tell him every detail of your life, then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ…” 

Trusting God’s timing for answered prayer

It is imperative to understand that yes God answers some prayers quickly. But on the flip side, some answers take longer to arrive. The scripture explains it well in Ecclesiastes 3:1 The Message Translation, “There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth…

In other words, God answers prayers in His perfect timing because He knows what’s best for you. Therefore, when we trust God’s timing [myself included] the answer to our prayers is on the way.
