“The Lord hath heard my supplications; The Lord will receive my prayer.”
The Bible tells us that God hears our pleas, and will receive our prayers. Yet, most of us have no patience with God when it comes to our prayers. We believe that just because He can answer immediately, He should. Many times, it's easier for us to believe that our prayers have fallen on celestial deaf ears, than to honestly consider that our timing, regarding the issue we have prayed for, may be off. That’s why faith is so important in the life of a Believer. It truly is the substance of things hoped for; and, the evidence of outcomes yet unseen. For this reason, it is unnecessary to weep over something, or even someone that has been removed from your life. Although we may have become attached to the thing or person, neither were necessary pillars for the future God planned for us. Even if you believed that something or someone was to be an integral part of your personal journey; often, the only reason that they were allowed to be there in the first place, was to teach you a valuable lesson about your Love, Character, Integrity, and Strength.
So, do not be discouraged, God’s response can emerge out of anything, through anyone, from anywhere. More importantly, it is an opportunity for Him to show that He has already opened doors just for you that no man can close; and, will close doors behind you, when necessary, that no man can open. As long as it is in the Will of God; if it is for you, it is for you; and nothing but an act of God can stop it from reaching you. L.
