So many times our backs have been against the wall—we prayed and it seemed like nothing happened. We’ve heard the scripture “Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do…” (John 14:13) so many times we’ve memorized it. And when you asked and nothing happened, either you began questioning the validity of God’s word, questioning your faith. Or maybe even stopped believing God’s word or even stopped believing in Him. But may I ask a question…Was it in His divine will? You know we must be lined up with God’s word and in His divine will to see His hand move. For there is also a scripture that reads…Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. (I john 5:14 NKJV) Here we have a clearer understanding of the resolve Jesus felt when He said, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” (Luke 22:42 NKJV) And the next verse an angel came from heaven and strengthened him. And that is what we need…to be able to pray God’s will be done and then receive the strength to be able to bear the answer whatever the outcome.
Lord, my Rock and Redeemer, thank you that you are my ever-present help in times of trouble. When all I can see around me is trouble, help me to trust in what is unseen. Remind me of the truth of your power, that you surround me and no one can pluck me from your hand. Remove my fear and replace it with wholehearted faith in you my God. Your word says that, to those who ask, according to your will, it will be given, to those who seek, it will be found, and to those who knock, the door will be opened. Please hear my prayer for a miracle and grant my request. Please help me to look to you instead of relying on my own strength and trust that you always do what is best for me. May your peace, which surpasses all understanding, guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. You are the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God. To you be honor and glory forever and ever. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
