Have you ever kept praying and praying and didn’t get the answer that you wanted? You start to wonder if God is listening or perhaps saying no. God’s timing is always perfect. We may not understand it, but God’s timing fits into his perfect plan for our lives.
Sometimes, when everything is going wrong, we pled with God and ask, “why is this happening?” Maybe God has been knocking at our door, trying to get our attention. Maybe instead of submitting humbly to the Lord, we are trying to control the situation. Maybe, we think that we know better.
God is all powerful. God created the heavens and the earth. God created each of us as ‘one of a kind’ models. Nobody is just like you, with your own fingerprints, eyes and DNA. Don’t you think that the one who created us has a better plan for us than we can fathom?
Even though I know this and believe it with all my heart, I can still be impatient. As months roll on, I wonder what exactly God has planned for me. Did he forget me? No, God is always working all things out for our good and the good of those he loves.
In the bible, Jesus’s good friend, Lazarus, dies. Jesus says, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”
Before Jesus performs a miracle of raising his friend from the dead, he prays to God, saying, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?” Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me. And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.” Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!” And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with grave clothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.”
Hold on, and keep believing, and you will see the glory of God. Thank you Father, for sending Jesus to redeem us, and save us from our sins. Thank God for always hearing our prayers, because God always hears us.
