Don’t Give Up On That Prayer & two book bundle giveaways!!!
Do you ever worry God is so tired of hearing your broken-record prayers that maybe He’s just not listening? Have you ever found yourself thinking, after months or even years of praying a certain prayer and it continues to go unanswered, that just possibly that prayer is too big for even God to answer?
Not true, my friend. Even though I admit I’ve felt that way too.
My devotion today over at Proverbs 31, When God Answers the Unanswerable Prayer, talks about this very thing. As a result of my separation and divorce several years ago, everything in my life was flipped upside down, not just my heart. Life as I knew it had ended, money was sparse while bills were not. I worried myself into a meltdown practically every day trying to figure how I could fix the problems I was facing.
And that was the problem – I could not fix them. I had no power to usher in miracles, which I needed so many of. But God did. As I shared in the devotion, so many miracles, little bitty ones and even huge ones I could have never orchestrated on my own (in fact, no human on earth could have orchestrated them) began to happen. Somehow, by God’s grace and power alone, life and finances began to fall into place. In fact, I could write an entire book on how many times God provided for me and my children in tangible ways and how He answered prayers through miracles, but that might bore you! Because you surely have a set of your own miracles you’re praying for today. And that is your focus.
It’s sometimes hard to hear about God answering other people’s prayers in miraculous ways when we still have those unanswered prayers on our hearts; when we still are desperate for one of God’s miracles to take place in our own lives. So I want to remind you today what the Bible says …. God is a God of miracles who delights in answering the prayers of His people: “You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples” (Psalm 77:14). Our timetable is not God’s timetable – but He will meet our needs exactly when we need them met and answer our prayers in His perfect timing.
This Psalmist here compels us to not only remember God is a God of miracles but also let that truth crush our doubts of His miraculous abilities and faithfulness.
If you have an unanswered prayer weighing on your heart today, don’t grow weary of lifting it up to Him. Rest in knowing He is indeed listening, even when He seems silent. He has a plan, even though you may not. And it is good. Keep believing in that miracle and keep your eyes open to see Him at work.
Both of my last two books were written in the midst of this hard season of divorce in my life. If you are going through a difficult season, regardless of the reason or your specific circumstances, I would love to for God to use the words He gave me to speak hope and encouragement into your life.
