Sometimes when we pray long and hard about a situation without receiving an answer we get tired of waiting and give up too soon. Some people have thought that God did not answer their prayer, but the truth is they gave up before the answer got to them. Waiting is never easy, but the end result, whatever it is, will be worth it.
PRAISE THE LORD! Beloved, I want to encourage you to continue to Stand. Don't give up! You may have been praying about specific promises from God for some time now —and you've seen little or no change in answer to your prayers. God may have given you a WORD or prophecy and it's been years and still that word has not manifested. God has not forgotten.
Sometimes when answers take some time come people often think it is because they are unholy and unrighteous, and they try to behave better, hoping that then their prayers will be answered. If you are born again, you are righteous. You may not do everything right; but you are 100 percent righteous through Christ. (2 Corinthians 5:2) We cannot make ourselves righteous; only the blood of Jesus can. So cast that lie of Satan down. He speaks it because he wants to block The Blessing in your life.
Remember Abraham and Sarah? Remember the promise God made to them? Genesis 12:2-3 "I will make you into a great nation. I will bless you and make you famous, and you will be a blessing to others. I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” It was God’s will that they would have a child. GOD did exactly what He said He would do. Even though Abraham tried to help God out, His original word to Abraham still stood.
If you are a child of God, you are evidence of that truth. You are Abraham's seed. You are a Child of the Promise. Don't give up. Keep standing. Keep believing. Right now the Angels of God are diligently working to bring the answer. Let your faith rise up above what you see. GOD ALWAYS keeps His WORD and His promise. Even if He has to part an ocean for you what He said will come to pass. (Exodus 14:22-29)
One last point: Revelation 8:3-4 reads – “3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.”
Look at that! Your prayers are incense, gathered by the angels of God, and offered to The Most High as a fragrant gift. The spirit world governs the physical world. Before anything takes place physically, it has already happened spiritually. Jesus said we should pray “Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven” The Word of God declares God’s will. God hears your prayers.
