God Hears Your Prayers

Jeremiah 29:12

Verse of the Day:  Jeremiah 29:12    

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.

Be encouraged, you serve a God who promises to listen to every single one of your prayers. No matter how big or how small, He hears them all. He receives your requests and petitions and answers them all in His own timing and in His own way. Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes it’s no and sometimes it’s not now. It’s not always what you want but it’s always God’s will for you. You might not understand why things happen the way they do, but God knows the end from the beginning and you must trust in Him with all your heart. Therefore, pray without ceasing and pray with expectation. Keep praying, keep praising, keep worshiping because God is listening.

God’s Timing

Verse of the Day:  Habakkuk 2:3      

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end; it will not lie, if it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.         

When we have laid our troubles, our worries, our needs or our requests before God we need to wait patiently. We must not fall into the temptation of being impatient. Instead we must be persistent in prayer, never giving up, and all the while trusting in God and in His timing. Though we may not know the exact time God has already determined for the answer to our prayers, we do know that God always keeps His promises. We cannot rush Him, but we can be sure He will not disappoint and while we wait on Him we must remain faithful. God’s timing is perfect, it’s never late and it’s always on time. 

Wait, Hope, Believe   

Psalm 27 14 2

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 27:14

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.

We’re not always good at waiting, it’s just our nature. We get impatient, frustrated and start to doubt God’s will in our lives. Instead we need to be confident in God’s love for us. We need to wait on the Lord’s timing, hope in His mercy and believe in His promises!

Hold On to Hope

Hebrews 10 23 2

Verse of the Day: Hebrews 10:23

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.

It’s easy to have faith in God when everything is going our way and when things are good. But when difficult times come and our faith is being stretched we can’t give up hope. As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that He is always faithful. The promises of God are exceedingly great and He fulfills each one in His own timing. God never changes His mind, He never forgets and His Word is true for all eternity. God will never lie, deceive or mislead you. Even if it feels like He has overlooked you or if He feels far away, have faith and remember He is always with you and He has never ever failed in any of His promises. Keep hoping, keep believing and keep trusting God.

God Hears You

1 John 5 14

Verse of the Day: 1 John 5:14

This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.

Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God. God hears all your prayers and He answers each one. Sometimes the answer is yes, sometimes the answer is no and sometimes the answer is not right now but in His timing. The key words here are “according to His will”.  Always pray “according to his will” asking that the Lord’s will be done, not yours, that His promises be fulfilled for He alone knows His plans for you. Pray by faith in the name of Jesus with humility and reverence because no matter what the answer is, you can be sure He has heard your prayer.

God Isn’t Finished with You Yet

Philippians 1 6

Verse of the Day:  Philippians 1:6

Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Have you ever felt like it was taking way too long for God to change you? Maybe you have some bad habits or qualities you want to change or you feel you should be further along in your spiritual growth. You may have even wished you could rush God into changing you over night. I know I have, we all do, but it just doesn’t happen that way. Life is a journey and it begins when we give our life to Jesus. Our final destination is heaven and along the way God is working on us, changing us, growing our faith and making us more like Christ. You need to be confident that in His way and in His timing He is changing you. We know this because He always finishes what He starts. So when you feel like you’re not changing fast enough, have faith and trust that God is still working on you and as long as you don’t give up He will continue to work on you until Jesus comes for His church.
