Why doesn’t God do everything we ask? Why don’t we get what we ask for? Whats going on? This seems to be the question I hear from believers and unbelievers alike. We’re always looking for signs, miracles, to see a mighty move of the Spirit of God. Is it wrong to long for that? Is it wrong to want our loved ones free of disease? Free from bondage? NO!
I don’t have all the answers, but I know the one who does. His name is Jesus. There were many things He said that people didn’t understand but when the Holy Spirit was sent, it’s He who leads us into all truth.
“The prophecy of Isaiah describes them perfectly:
Although they listen carefully to everything I speak, they don’t understand a thing I say. They look and pretend to see, but the eyes of their hearts are closed. Their minds are dull and slow to perceive, their ears are plugged and are hard of hearing, and they have deliberately shut their eyes to the truth. Otherwise they would open their eyes to see, and open their ears to hear, and open their minds to understand. Then they would turn to me and let me instantly heal them.” Matthew 13:14-15 TPT
What I need to do is seek Him with all my heart and I will find Him, then listen and obey His voice. If I go where He sends me, He will do what He said He will do. I become His messenger, the rest is on Him. When He said He would watch over His Word, He meant it. When He said, “I will hasten my Word to perform it,” He meant it.
I can’t tell you WHEN, it will happen, but I can tell you that as soon as I obeyed and declared it, it DID happen. God doesn’t work on our time, He works outside of time. Who’s to say that the moment you spoke, He went back to fix what was broken. We must trust enough to rest in His promises and continue to seek His face, going where He leads, doing what He says, serving with child like faith in the Father.
Eyes on Him, not on the miracle we’re hoping for. Eyes on Him, studying His Word, worshipping Him and encouraging each other. Eyes on Him, our hope. Eyes on Him, always, He will direct our steps.
Jesus! I trust in you! Even when I don’t see it, I trust you. Even when it makes no sense, I trust you. I’ll keep doing my part which is small, so that you can do your part through me in the grand scale you desire to. It’s in your name I pray, Amen.
