WHY NOT RECIEVING ANSWERS FROM GOD
REASONS; WHY NOT RECEIVING ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS?
It may happen in sometimes you have prayed faithful to God but still not yet receiving answers to your prayers. Time is passing, and you are in a position of giving up. Never give up sometimes God wants to see how patient we are! But this might not be a reason for not receiving answers, there might be some other reasons why you are not receiving answers to your prayers. And these reasons are caused by you, yourself. Today God will teach us a wonderful lesson which will change our life and put us in a better position of communicating with our God and making Him respond to our prayers instantly and appropriately.
The following are some reasons which hindering our God from answering our prayers, once we keep these things into consideration then we are in good position.
Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. When you need God to intervene any situation or anything happening in your life, what is your part is to believe only that God is able of anything. The verse above is telling us “…the evidence of things not seen”, it means things which by our mighty and force can not happen but God can make them happen and people will wonder how great is our God. Just have faith, things will happen.
2. STRONG REASONS
Isaiah 41:21 “Present your case”, says the LORD. “Bring forth you strong reasons”, says the King of Jacob. This verse teaches us that, we have to go to God with strong reasons. Some of us do not pray but only crying and blaming God why they are in troubles; diseased, difficult life, lacking of school fees e. t. c. In this verse God tells us that we need to tell Him what we need Him to do in our life and not blaming Him with difficulties in our lives.
Isaiah 43:26 “Put Me in remembrance; let us contend together; state your case, that you may be acquitted” and 1 Samuel 1:20 “So it came to pass in the process of time that Hannah conceived and bore a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, “Because I have asked for him from the LORD”. The first verse tells us to put God into remembrance not because He is forgotten NO it is because He needs to see how patient we are and how much we believe in Him no matter how long time is gone. In the second verse God tells us that there is appropriate time of answering our prayers, the time when everyone is giving up and convincing you to find an alternative. Just be patient, God will answer.
4. INIQUITIES & SINS
Isaiah 59:2 “But you iniquities have separated you from your God; and your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He will not hear”. The verse is telling us that, iniquities can separate us from God and sins hide His face and both iniquities and sins makes Him close His ears and He will never hear us no matter how strongly with tears we will pray. So we need to be pure hearted before our God, then He will hear us praying and answering our prayers.
5. BY THE NAME OF JESUS
John 15:16 “…that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you”. This is amazing, just whatever we ask our God(Father), He may give us. But this comes with only one condition, the condition is; asking the Father in His name(Jesus’ name). So praying to our God through Jesus’ name anything is possible.
Malachi 3:10 “Bring all the tithes in the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this”, says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it”. Most of us needs blessings in our lives; we needs good houses, cars, holding large businesses and many more. We keep praying by crying every day before God, forgetting that we are out of the blessings secret. The blessings secret is TITHE! Bring Him your full tithe in due time and you will receive the blessings He promised even without asking or praying for.
7. GIVING THANKS
Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always for all things to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”. Whatever we ask God no matter He have answered or not, we have to give Him thanks. By giving thanks even in our ordinary life, things are moving this is much more in our Father. Give Him thanks and praise Him for what He did in your life, He will keep doing because you just give Him thanks.
Ecclesiastes 5:4-5 “When you make a vow to God, do not delay to pay it; for He has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you have vowed. Better not to vow than to vow and not pay”. This is the problem of many of us, we vow and not pay our vows. God calls people who are not paying for their vows; fools. I don’t wonder if God will not answer our prayers, because He never listens fools’ voices no matter how good we will be praying. Pay all of your vows in time, next time praying God will careful listen to your prayers and He will answer you.
I believe, God has taught you something new in your life. You will never stay the same, just keep these things into practice and you will see God’s hand and blessings in your life. AMEN.
