Art of Living #17

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #17 : "Continue in prayer." (Col.4:2).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : Praying to God is a priviledge that is given to God's children's only. Sometimes when the things that we pray for doesn't come, we become discouraged and stop praying for it. Dear saints of God, God's delay are not denials. Instead His delay in answering us gives us the evidence that God is serious in answering us with the best possible thing which is in His mind. God has always answered me till today and not even one prayer of mine has been left unanswered. But you may be thinking by now how is it possible, are you serious about what you say? Yes I am. But His answers have come to me in three different unique word. Would you like to know what it is? He has always said Yes sometimes, No sometimes and Wait many times. For example if life is a crossroad, then seeking God is a traffic signal in which God blinks a green, red or amber light to indicate yes, no and wait or move slowly. God know your future even before you thought about it in your mind. The Bible beautifully describes this by saying, "Known to God from eternity are all His works." (Acts 15:18).

Whether God says to you today yes, no or wait, never forget that the hope of the righteous shall always be gladness in the end (Prov.10:28). Just encourage yourself saying, 'Don't miss it -- put your name here ---, your miracle is on the way.' God will always bring an end to that which is hoped only in His predetermined time, and not one second before this will He give an answer. This is what we call as the test of faith. After the test, there always comes a promotion and favor of God upon the person who has passed it. Blessed are those who have waited for God's answer 99 days and not stumble before the 100th day of breakthrough and favor of God, which stays for a lifetime. Who knows, tomorrow may be your day of miracle and answer for which you have prayed for years in the past. "25 The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him. 26 It is good that one should hope and wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD." (Lam 3:25-26). CONTINUE EARNESTLY IN PRAYER OF HOPE AS GOD CONSIDERS IT AS THE ACID TEST OF YOUR DEVOTION TOWARDS HIM. Blessings....
