Have you ever prayed for an instant resolution but never received the answer? Do you believe God still answers prayer or does He answer prayers only worth listening to? You are not alone because in this day and age millions of people are still waiting on God to help them solve a problem, but hearing His voice has become overwhelmingly difficult for a lot of people.
The Lord listens to prayer 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Many times He’s already pulled through when you hardly recognized it was Him. The most amazing tool that can help you start hearing God’s voice is TIME! Do you have time to hear Him? How long do you sit in His presence and give an ear to hear what the Lord is saying?
Well, if you are five minutes in and five minutes out, you hardly gave God the chance to communicate with you. He wants you to enjoy His presence and this starts with focusing on the Lord and not your problems alone. Now of course God will listen to whatever difficulties you are facing, but remember to praise His name for the solution.
I remember a time when I was in a hurry to leave God’s presence but I knew I wasn’t satisfied so I got back on my knees and worshiped the Lord again. I couldn’t just come before the Lord with a prayer request, I had to thank Him for the blessings He already given me. While in His presence, I received an answer to a prayer I’ve been praying for years!
Remember to meditate on God’s goodness and all He has done for you. Stay in His presence until you receive the answer. Often times I play soft gospel music and lay before Him, waiting to feel His love and support.
“He who planted the ear, shall He not hear?” Psalm 94:9
