We all have goals, dreams, and visions in life. We pray about them all of the time and we try to hold onto them, because with faith in Jesus we know they will come to pass. When it does happen, when our dream becomes a reality or when our prayer is answered, our faith in God grows stronger and we experience the most wonderful feeling.
But there are times the enemy will cloud the vision that God gives us. Satan may not be able to read your mind, but he can hear your words. He sees your actions and knows just what buttons to push, and when to push them to get your mind off the vision. He wants nothing more than to steal our dreams. But he can’t steal our dreams unless we let him. This is why it’s so important for us to hold fast to our confession of faith and believe in God’s Word.
If you’re praying for something and it just hasn’t arrived yet, keep praying! PUSH! Pray until something happens. There are times when we pray to God for an answer, and it seems that all hope is gone. We then begin to worry instead of praying but don’t do both. Praying tells God that you still believe; worrying tells God that you have stopped believing. If you believe God is working all things out for your good, you also have to believe that His timing is part of that. It all comes down to how much you trust your heavenly Father.
I want to encourage you not to be discouraged at what appears to be a lack of results in your prayer life. You have no idea what the Lord is doing right now on your behalf to answer your prayers. You cannot see it, but rest assured God is working it out. What He requires from you is faith to believe that His Word is true. Keep your eyes focused on the Lord, and keep praying in faith, remembering to thank Him and praise Him for all He has already done.
