Do you receive what you ask the Lord for?

Author: Kevin and Corrie  //  Category: Verses & Quotes
I read a quote today that made perfect sense. I had never thought about it that way before, but it is so true. The quote is from O. Hallesby and it’s below.

“If God does not give you something you ask for, wait on Him. He will speak with you tenderly and sympathetically about the matter, until you yourself understand that He cannot grant your prayer.”

I was thinking about this quote and it came to me. It’s possible that the reason why God is not going to grant your prayer is because you are either not supposed to have whatever you asked for or you must go about it a different way. This could mean you have to work harder to get what you want because it’s not going to be handed to you or it could mean that what would happen after you received what you prayed about would have a negative outcome.

Just because you didn’t get what you wanted doesn’t mean God does not listen to your prayers. Let him speak to you and he will explain why he is not going to give it to you. You might be relieved and thankful in the end.

    God always listens to our prayers. However, He grants according to His plans for our life.
