HOW TO GUARANTEE THAT YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED!
The idea, conscious or subconscious, that God can’t or won’t speak to us about any subject that we didn’t bring up first is sad at best and ludicrous at worst.
If we will just cast all our cares, seek peace in our minds, hearts, and spirits, then the Father will speak to us about what is important to HIM!
When we are cluttered inside with “stuff,” we cannot hear His still small voice! AGAIN, we MUST cast ALL of our cares on Him, get neutral before the Father, and He WILL speak to us!
What’s more important to you, what you want to say to God or what He wants to say to you?
Since Biblical Prayer is communication with the Father and true communication is two-way, then true prayer is just as much listening as it is talking.
Prayer is not a debate over what we want versus what God wants. Neither is it a negotiation! True prayer is founded upon seeking the Will of the Father and having His Peace within. Until I know His Will and have peace in my heart and mind, how can I talk to Him about anything else?
If we can’t have “peace” unless we get our way with God, then we will NEVER truly have peace! AND Faith does not work in the hearts of the frantic!
OUR FATHER KNOWS BEST! His priority is eternity first, the temporal second! If that is not our priority, then we are out of step with God!
HERE IS HOW TO GUARANTEE ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS!
1 John 3:18-24
18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth.
19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him.
20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things.
21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God.
22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, BECAUSE WE KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS, AND DO THOSE THINGS THAT ARE PLEASING IN HIS SIGHT.
23 And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.
24 And he that KEEPETH HIS COMMANDMENTS dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, BY the Spirit which he hath given us.
1 John 5:14-15
14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing ACCORDING TO HIS WILL [NOT OUR WILL], he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. [Why? Because our petitions are HIS WILL and not our own!]
THE FOLLOWING IS GOD’S PRIORITY, IS IT YOURS?
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.
4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
GOD ALWAYS ANSWERS THE PRAYERS PRAYED BY THOSE WHOSE PRIORITIES ARE IN ALIGNMENT WITH HIS PRIORITIES! ALWAYS!
AGAIN, OUR FATHER KNOWS BEST! His priority is eternity first, the temporal second! If that is not our priority, then we are out of step with God! Prayers prayed by those who are not in step with God do not get answered the way “we want”!
