God’s Message Back

God's MessageAny of you with children who also have cell phones on your plan, can relate when I say how much it irritates me when my son takes a long time replying to my text messages.  After sending him a text, I love seeing the little symbol appear indicating that he is typing back a quick reply.  (For those of you who do not text, it is the symbol in my image above with the three little dots).  A prompt reply rarely happens from my child; I have just had to accept that he stays busy, and replies when he gets a chance.

It is easy to assume that God does not hear us when we pray, or that He takes a very long in reply.  Yet, the very moment that we call to Him, He answers.

God’s answers are not always what we want, though.  He may say yes, or perhaps even no; many times He simply says wait.  However, when we call to Him, He instantly replies.
Since He loves us and knows what is best, we can trust that His answers are always for our good. 

The important thing to remember is that although we may not think God has heard our cries for help, He has, and the answer has already been set in motion.  Our job is to listen, and watch for the revealing of His answers, and to trust that He has indeed replied.

Since God answers our prayers, should we keep on asking?  Absolutely!  By continuing in prayer over a matter, we gain greater insight into the answer, either of clarification, direction or comfort when we must wait.  It is also during those times of continuance in seeking God that He can help us in our wavering unbelief.  The more we stay in touch with Him, the clearer His answers and the greater our assurance that God has indeed heard our prayers.

Are you in need of help?  Call to out to Jesus.  He knows how to help and will always promptly reply.

        Sorry I was not clear on that comment, Valerie. I intended to direct readers to your site, because that was the post that prompted me to finish the ‘God’s Message’ image I had been working on from my post yesterday. I wanted others to read your terrific post. Blessings

    Amen!! You are so right. God always answers our prayers immediately. It is up to US when we receive the answer though. Thanks for sharing…

    Makes me want to just keep on 🙂 knowing I can rest in knowing He is always listening . . . maybe that’s why I talk and pray to Him throughout my day . . . ~ Blessings ~

    That’s good, Sue! But I am one of those that knows nothing about texting; I feel like I’m living in a time warp – cell phones couldn’t send text messages in 1996 when I got diagnosed, isn’t it amazing how far technology has progressed. Thankfully God is the same yesterday, today and FOREVER!

      Amen. Bill, you are probably much better off. I heard the tail end of an interview this am on Klove with a man in some ministry who refuses to jump on board the high tech stuff. His rationale is that he prefers the old fashioned method of actually talking one on one with people. Makes a good point! Blessings. Was
      Praying for you this am.

    God is, indeed, available 24/7 and hears us when we pray. I really appreciate when you said, “God has heard our cries for help, He has, and the answer has already been set in motion”. Blessings to you!
