“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7).
There are things in life, you need and strongly feel that you have right to have it as child of the almighty God. You pray and quote relevant scriptures, but in spite of all the prayer effort you put into achieving your goal. You fail to have that you need, while others get it without stress, you will be disappointed, discouraged and cast down!
Your request and His appoint time
Although God’s Word never fails (Isaiah 55:11), yet it is possible to pray based on the scriptures and not get a desired answer. Unknown to you, God has other plans – even better than what you desired. According to James 4:3, you are asking amiss, but at His appoint time it will dawn on you that when He said ‘No’ to your earlier request, it was because He had something better in store for you.
It is not every time God’s No means nothing for you. It could mean ‘this is not good enough. Wait until I find something better. Have you been trusting God for a particular blessing for so long? You have prayed, confessed the Word, stood on His promises and released your faith yet it seems God is not hearing; be not discouraged! He is not silent on your request. For at His time, He will answer your request. God is interested in that request but it could be that what you are crying for your eyes out for is not as good as what He has in mind for you!
