Seeking God? Have you been praying to God over and again to know His will for your life? Crying out to God for help in making a big decision? Praying, praying, and praying to know how to handle a certain tough situation? Praying to let something go you are sure He wants you to let go? Seeking God to provide something in some area of your life you are clear is His will for you?
Seeking God in anything at all and feeling frustrated that He has not yet given you the answer? That He has not yet provided something according to His will? That He has not yet given you wisdom and direction?
Feel like giving up seeking God? Feeling like He does not hear you and convinced yourself He is never going to answer?
DO NOT STOP SEEKING GOD! Do not give up praying to Him about the matter! Do not stop crying out to the Lord Jesus Christ! God wants you to know His will for your life. He wants to help you make decisions according to His will. He wants to help you live in obedience to Him. He wants to help you let go of what He wants you to let go. He wants you to know how to handle things in a way pleasing to Him. He wants to provide for you according to His perfect will, plans, and purposes.
BELIEVE He hears your cries and BELIEVE He will answer you ACCORDING TO HIS PERFECT WILL – IN HIS PERFECT TIME!
Why won’t God answer our cries when we seek Him right away? He has His reasons! He may be strengthening our faith, testing our love and devotion to Him, preparing us for whatever it is He will speak to our hearts, training us for something He has for us in the future, drawing us closer to Himself, teaching us patience, etc.
When we SEEK GOD with FAITH, when we cry out to Him for His wisdom WITH FAITH He will answer, we can rest assured His answer will come!
Be open to HOW God may answer. He may lead us to Bible verses with the answer, He may use other people to speak to us His answer, He may give us dreams or visions, He may speak by His Holy Spirit to our hearts, etc. ALWAYS absolutely ALWAYS God speaks IN LINE with the Bible. Anything we hear that goes against the Bible is not from God.
So as you continue to pray, and as you continue to wait, spend time with the Lord, praising and worshiping Him, crying out to and seeking Him, reading the Bible, experiencing and enjoying His presence, and waiting trustingly for His response!
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” 1 John 5:14-15 NKJV
“”Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8 NKJV
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:5-8 NKJV
“My son, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;” Proverbs 2:1-7 NKJV
