READ Isaiah 38:1-4
There are four possible answers to our prayers. First of all some of God’s answers are direct. We pray for something and God answers our prayers exactly the way we have requested.
For example, if you pray for God to give you a job and you get a call from an employer who gives you a position in his company you know that God has answered your prayer directly. If you pray for God to send rain upon a dry and thirsty land and God opens up the heavens and sends rain, you know that God has responded directly. Also if you pray for God to provide healing from some ailment and your health is restored then you know that God has given you a direct answer to your prayer.
That is exactly what happened to King Hezekiah in Isaiah 38. The Bible says that the King was “sick unto death.” However, he turned his face to the wall and prayed that God would renew his physical strength and the Bible says that God promised to add fifteen years to his life. That was a direct answer to prayer.
We must remember that God is kindly disposed to hear and answer the prayers of His children, so don’t call certain things a happy coincidence when heaven has provided a blessed answer in response to our prayers.
Dear Heavenly Father, help me to realize that Your heart is touched by my circumstances and that Your ear is inclined toward me. Help me to come to You in faith believing that You are a God who answers prayers. Help me to understand that there is nothing too big for You to answer and nothing too small to get Your attention. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Help me to understand that there is nothing too big for You to answer and nothing too small to get Your attention. #realmomentum app
