Patiently wait for God alone, my soul! For he is the one who gives me confidence. — Ps 62:5
Our too general neglect of looking for answers to what we ask, shows how little we are in earnest in our petitions. A husbandman is not content without the harvest; a marksman will observe whether the ball hits the target; a physician watches the effect of the medicine which he gives; and shall the Christian be careless about the effect of his labor?
Every prayer of the Christian, made in faith, according to the will of God, for which God has promised, offered up in the name of Jesus Christ, and under the influence of the Spirit, whether for temporal or for spiritual blessings, is, or will be, fully answered.
God ALWAYS answers the general design and intention of His people's prayers, in doing that which, all things considered, is most for His own glory and their spiritual and eternal welfare.
As we never find that Jesus Christ rejected a single supplicant who came to Him for mercy, so we believe that no prayer made in His name will be in vain.
The answer to prayer may be approaching, though we discern not its coming.
The seed that lies under ground in winter is taking root in order to a SPRING and harvest, though it appears not above ground, but seems dead and lost.
Hang in there!
Winter is waning and you have almost made it through!
Let us use the first day of Spring today as a rebirth and starting point for all that lies in store for us from this day forward- peace, joy, hope and love!
A new mental outlook, a change in attitude, a new and fresh approach to all we encounter and plan to accomplish!
Ask for it sincerely and you will receive it!
Stay Strong! !!
