Need Answers?

How many times do we find ourselves intently looking for an answer from God to a specific question or need we have?  It is certain that much of our prayers should and do focus on worship and praise toward God.  But it is also true that many times our prayers are saturated with requests and needs.

Let me encourage you with this undeniable, indisputable, and irrevocable truth — God wants to answer our questions!  God wants to give us what we need!  So if you are being tempted to think that maybe God is not going to meet your need, then change your thinking to line up with His Word! From Genesis through Revelation, we can clearly see that God’s great love for us is an ACTIVE LOVE!  He interacts in our lives!

So what do you do when you feel like you are not getting an answer?  We all know there are many variables to answering that question, but scripture teaches us some overall guidelines.  First of all, be persistent.  Keep asking, seeking, and knocking.  Second, be sure to get into Scripture to see what it has to say about your situation.  Third, consider if there is some action you need to take.

Let’s further explain the third point for a moment.  As I was studying the story of Abraham’s obedience to God in sacrificing Isaac, I noticed something.  Scripture tells us that Abraham set out to go to the place God had told him about in order to make the sacrifice.  Isn’t it amazing that, at that place, there were thickets?  Isn’t it amazing that, at that place, there was a ram?  When Abraham took action by going to the place God had directed him, his answer was supplied.

Is there something you need to do to put yourself in the place to receive your answer?

Alisa and I are praying for you!  We know God has the answer you need!  We also know that God will provide for you!

Love in Christ,
