God answers prayer. He absolutely does. He might not answer the way you script the outcome, but he answers. His response is either yes, no or later. No matter the result, God answers.
One of the many joys that we miss out on in prayer is reflecting back on what we’ve prayed about and thinking through how God met those needs. We either forget all together or we end up giving credit to “coincidence.” That’s why writing down the needs you’re praying for is so helpful, because it allows you to go back and review what God has done. Listen to this Psalmist recognize God’s goodness:
“It was not by their sword that they won the land,
nor did their arm bring them victory;
it was your right hand, your arm,
and the light of your face, for you loved them.”
He gives God glory, not just in general, but he’s specific about how God moved.
Here’s your moment to give God specific credit. (And I want you to really do this, not just scan down the rest of this post and move on.)
Spend some time reflecting on how God has answered specific prayers. Make a list of what He’s done and give him thanks and glory for it all. He deserves it!
Giving Him Glory with you!
