Unanswered Prayer – Waiting on the Blessings of God

By | March 17, 2018

Sometimes the greatest blessing in life is being blessed with an unanswered prayer.

But that’s just part of the story…

Unanswered prayer is one of the biggest challenges many of us will face when it comes to our faith in God.

Let’s be honest. When you pray for God’s goodness and you find yourself being blessed beyond measure. It’s easy to maintain your faith and stay strong in the Lord. Most of us are willing to count it all joy when we aren’t facing with the trials and tribulations of this life.

However, when you’ve been praying and praying for that challenging situation that you are facing to end.

When you’ve been waiting for a financial outpour or physical healing. And all you get is silence from God and the same old struggle.

That’s when it can get challenging to remain strong in our faith.

Truth About Unanswered Prayer

Here’s the thing, God doesn’t always answer our prayers the moment we ask for it.

For example, in scripture Exodus 2:23-25 says…

Unanswered Prayer

In this scripture, God had promised to bring the Israelite slaves out of Egypt.

Yet, they found themselves waiting for a long time, and now they were crying (praying) yet again after the death of the Egyptian King.

Of course, as you know the promises of God was eventually fulfilled.

And that’s the spiritual takeaway from this verse.

The promises of God are always fulfilled.

That’s why, when you ask God in prayer for your heart desires. God will answer your prayer at the right and perfect time.

Pray, meditate and trust that God know the best time to give you the blessings.

If you are a facing a challenging situation and think that God has forgotten you in your troubles. Keep on praying and taking the steps that you’ve been given to take. Trust that God will take care of you and protect you.

It might not but easy to wait on God. Yet, truth be told, when you maintain your faith even when it looks like God doesn’t care. That’s when your faith in God grows stronger and stronger. Spiritual growth and maturity happens in the challenge and the difficulty.

You might not realize it now. But when you can maintain an attitude of gratitude despite the challenge that you are facing. When God helps you overcome the challenge the blessings will be that much sweeter.
