This morning God showed me people who were heartbroken thinking that He does not care about their situations and was not answering their prayers.
If you've been thinking God is not hearing you, that He doesn't care, you're wrong. God is not a deadbeat father. He's an attentive, loving, Father who sees and cares for you.
Some were on the verge of giving up praying altogether thinking, "What's the point?"
It would be very painful indeed to think there is a God but He doesn't care about you, but this isn't true.
He explained to me that the way He answers prayers is sometimes not in the way people expect and that's why they think He isn't responding.
People pray for money and He gives them an opportunity to give, to sow seed in order to reap a harvest.
They pray for increase and first He shows them how they must repair what's around them so that they can maintain the blessings He has in store for them.
They pray for a spouse, and He revelas to them the charactar issues that must be fixed before He entrusts one of His children to them.
They pray for health and He says, "Come to Me," the way many brought themselves or their sick loved ones to the foot of Jesus.
They say they want to know Him more and He draws them to His Word.
They will ask for a deliverer from bondage, from a Roman army, and He wil send a Deliverer for their souls first.
God is a deep cleaner, not a surface cleaner. He will answer the root of your prayer (and often the leaves, because He is merciful and kind).
Today's video is called, "God heard you." Darling, He did.
(Not every word is for everybody so take it to God in prayer and let Him reveal more)
