Day 31: The Answer


Once again

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,

because

ALL the ANSWERS are found

in the ONE ANSWER~

JESUS.

But what if JESUS isn't enough?

What if you want AN ANSWER that you can touch and see

in the here and now.

What if?

But then t

you SEE HIM as HE ushers you into your

FOREVER ETERNITY.

HE CROWNS you with

the PRIZE

because you have

run the race of LIFE with HIM,

even though LIFE tried so hard to make you run off

HIS PATH.

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.

ANSWERED PRAYER

standing right before you~

JESUS.

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

ALL PRAYERS

with

with the name above ALL names,

JESUS,

because when

JESUS shows up

because you show up

HE comes with

HIS PEACE

that is the

ANSWER in ALL THINGS.

So let's experience

THE ANSWER

in ALL things at ALL times

as we daily walk through

the shortest month of

FEBRUARY 1-28

with the

NEW DEVOTIONAL SERIES

"THE ANSWER"

beginning tomorrow

because

"JESUS IS THE ANSWER"

(listen to the song below)
