Let God Answer His Way


We have a two-fold problem with God. We ask too little and we want it too quick. Instead of letting God work in His time and in His way to do something big, we get impatient for a response, and we aim too low for an answer. In Ephesians 3:20, the Apostle Paul says, "But God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think." (NKJV) You think of the greatest thing in your imagination, and God can do bigger. That's amazing! But there is a caveat with this approach to prayer. If God really gave you all the requests you asked for, it would overwhelm you. In the same way, when God led the Israelites into the Promised Land, he didn't let them take it over completely right away; they took it over little by little - overcoming one enemy at a time. I'm thankful that God hasn't answered all my prayers exactly the way I asked for them. Some of them would have been a disaster! Sometimes the worst thing in the world for us is to get our requests answered. What about you? Maybe you're praying about a situation. It looks like everything is going according to plan -- when all of the sudden -- it doesn't work out. Don't worry; instead, let God answer in His time and His way.


““For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:9‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Vital signs What are you tempted to put above Jesus in your life? Angels have never been on the list for me! For first century Jews, however, angels were a much bigger deal. Angels were seen as agents
