And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.
1 John 5:15
Faith can be a hard thing to practice.
When we pray in earnest and seem to get no answer for the things we’re asking, it can be discouraging.
But remind yourself of this scripture and the fact that our Father who gives us all good things and works everything for our good is on the task.
We ask and pray for God’s best, and sometimes that means a delay or that he has something even better than we imagined planned for us.
Faith is the belief in things unseen, and if you continue to keep the faith, God is so infinitely good he will answer you in his perfect timing in order to work it out for your best.
- Prayer: God help me to be patient when I ask things of you. Help me to wait patiently on you as you work everything out perfectly for my best interest. I have faith that you hear and will answer me in your perfect timing. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
