Day 31: The Answer
GOD has my attention
as I was holding back on HIM,
because HE isn't ANSWERING a PRAYER
I have been praying.
I KNOW GOD is actually ANSWERING my PRAYER
in HIS WAY
and in HIS TIMING,
but oh the stubborn impatient me
is beginning to emerge.
But oh how GOD won't let me stay here,
as HE reminds me that
HIS ANSWER IS IN THE WAIT.
It is in the WAIT that
GOD changes me
and changes you,
as HE draws you closer into
a deeper relationship with HIMSELF,
so that HE becomes the ANSWER.
GOD doesn't have to ANSWER my PRAYER.
Wow. Think about it
What if GOD never ANSWERS your deepest heart PRAYER?
Crushing isn't it.
Oh the tears are flowing.
But what if there are ANSWERS all around you
that you are missing because you are so fixated on that one PRAYER,
ALL the ANSWERS are found
in the ONE ANSWER~
But what if JESUS isn't enough?
What if you want AN ANSWER that you can touch and see
in the here and now.
But then t
you SEE HIM as HE ushers you into your
HE CROWNS you with
because you have
run the race of LIFE with HIM,
even though LIFE tried so hard to make you run off
because you couldn't SEE GOD'S ANSWERS for that one PRAYER.
But you held tight onto FAITH
"because we know that the ONE who raised the LORD JESUS from the dead will also raise us with JESUS and present us with you to HIMSELF...."*
And because you didn't give up even when
LIFE wasn't going the way you thought it would go~
"Therefore we do not lose heart.
Though outwardly we are wasting away,
yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day" .*
Because GOD uses ALL THINGS to draw you closer to HIM~
"For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us
an eternal glory that far outweighs them all"*
So when you couldn't SEE the ANSWER
you kept your eyes peeled on the ONE WHO IS THE ANSWER~
"So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal"*
(2 Corinthians 4:14, 16-18)
And there it is.
standing right before you~
Oh when you KNOW JESUS is standing next to your every PRAYER,
oh how that PRAYER is safe and sound in HIS HANDS
because you are safe and sound in HIS HANDS
at all times.
"GOD may delay answering your PRAYERS
in order to give you far more than you’re asking for" (Stiles).
Thank YOU GOD for ANSWERING
with the name above ALL names,
JESUS shows up
because you show up
HE comes with
that is the
ANSWER in ALL THINGS.
So let's experience
in ALL things at ALL times
as we daily walk through
the shortest month of
NEW DEVOTIONAL SERIES
"JESUS IS THE ANSWER"
