From Jim’s Heart — Waiting for God’s Answers

When you think your prayers aren’t being answered, you tend to get discouraged and cry out, “God, why aren’t you helping me?”

Yet God has promised to answer your prayers: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7). However, sometimes you don’t see the answer for a while, or God may say no because He has a different—and better—plan.

So you are exhorted to ask. But your request must be…

  • In faith (Matthew 21:22)
  • Without selfish motives (James 4:3)
  • According to the will of God (1 John 5: 14-15)

Lord, I confess that I’m not good at waiting for
Your answers to my prayers. But as I wait,
I believe You will build my faith, purify my heart,
and show me Your will. Thank You!
