This really hits my heart you guys. So, I have seen so many people say, “Well, God didn’t hear my prayers so He must not love me/ know me or hear me so you know what, I just simply don’t believe He exists. That really breaks my heart because the Father sees us all. I get where you are at and understand the anguish you are going through/ have gone through but let me just tell you that you are so loved beyond what you think and He sees and hears everything you do and takes it into consideration.
The reason why some of us feel this way about prayer is because our prayers do not have the right intent. We are praying and asking from a place of either self-gain or we are missing the bigger picture of what we truly need. God is trying to align your hearts with His so we can pray perfect prayers in alignment with Him and receive an abundance from them. James 4: 3 says it perfectly “You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures”. We may not be trying to dwell and delight in our own passions and will but it happens sometimes. Come back and lay your heart down to God and try again. He has an abundance of Mercy.
He wants to bless you with finances or a husband or children, a business, school, whatever the case may be God wants to bless you but He needs you to align with Him. We live in a very spiritual world where spirits swirl all around us whether we see them or not. They block you from reaching God by getting to your heart and motives out of line without you even noticing.
Our patterns have brought forth unhealthy habits and invited unwanted evil visitors that honestly you guys we just do not notice because we aren’t spending quality time with Jesus. When we run into the Fathers presence and stay there, wow, the things He will show you and teach you are amazing.
This walk is a journey, or what I recently learned from Bethe Moore a quest. God wants you to be His best friend and grow and mature with him. He wants your prayers to be purposeful for His kingdom and He wants to show you that what He delights in is you. His kingdom refers to His children and the will He has for us all which is that we all should be saved. 1 Timothy 2:1-4. He wants our prayers to be powerful because He has given us authority and power to be rulers of this land. Why wouldn’t we want to move in power and have powerful prayers? You can heal the sick, raise the dead, crush the head of serpents! Know who you are in Christ and I guarantee you that you will move powerfully and gracefully in the LORD.
