How would you know? September 29, 2014

“Thank you for you reply.

I read an article on your blog Christine called ‘Keep going.’ I could relate a lot to it. I have a question. How would you know if God is saying ‘no’ or ‘not yet’ to a prayer you have?”

Christine’s reply:

The only way of knowing if God is saying ‘no’ or ‘not yet’ is to keep praying  and if and when He wants to answer it will happen, if not it won’t.

The Scripture says ‘ask and you will receive, knock and it will be opened’ in the original Hebrew it says to ‘keep on asking’  to keep on knocking’ But we need to make absolutely certain that what we are praying for is what we really want! I kept on praying without ever giving up, but when God eventually answered, I wish I’d never prayed for it!

Prayer is a serious matter. We are praying to a living God. One who hears. We also need to know that we are praying in God’s will.  God is Holy & cannot go against His standards or principles; a reason why many people get discouraged about unanswered prayer.

“You ask and receive not because you ask with wrong motives” (James 4:3).

“The Lord our God will have no part in unrighteousness(2 Chr 19:7).

Every blessing,
Christine.

“Thank you for the reply. Very encouraging and just what I needed. Could you please send the other scriptures as well as that would help me more.

 Sometimes I just find it hard to trust God fully when I can’t see anything happening or it seems like things aren’t going well.
Thank you.
