I had a conversation with someone who was extremely frustrated over some unchanging issues in his life. At one point he said, “I even prayed about it this morning, and even that didn’t work.”
This is how many people see prayer. They want it to be a sort of self-serving “magic wand” they can waive across any situation in order to produce the results that they want to see, and, in the timing in which they want to see it.
True prayer is realizing and accepting, that God does things in His way, and according to His timing – but it is always for our very best outcome and results.True prayer realizes and accepts that God does things in His way and timing. Click To Tweet
True prayer brings true results, because true prayer places every circumstance into the loving hands of the sovereign Lord of heaven and earth. There is no other place where the details and timing of our lives and situations could ever be in better hands. After all:
The heavens are telling of the glory of God, and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands. [Psalm 19:1]
Since the very expanse of unending universes are the work of God’s hands, we can have complete confidence that He will work all things out for our eventual and eternal benefit.
GOD’S LOVE NEVER FAILS
