DEVOTIONAL: “I sought the Lord, and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.” – Psalm 34:4-5, ESV.
CHALLENGE: God always answers our prayers. “God didn’t answer my prayer!” This is a common statement we hear from people, even Christians, these days. We often demand God to always say, “Yes, my child. As you wish.” If we pray according to His will this won’t be our expectation. What attitude to we have when we pray? What attitude do we have when God answers our prayers?
In chapter 7 of their book, The Battle Plan for Prayer, the Kendrick brothers give us a list of five ways God answers. Like a loving parent it’s not always a “Yes!” Sometimes we receive a “No!” or “Not yet, my child!” In the next three weeks we’ll take a look at variations of these.
