When God takes longer than you expect to answer your prayers, do you doubt Him? Or, do you relax, understanding that God works in His own timing?
He answers prayers in ways we sometimes don’t quite understand. And, hear this: He gives us far better than what we asked. (At least, that’s been my experience.)
The promise in this passage is powerful!
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.
The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
but the Lord delivers him out of them all. (Psalm 34:17-19)
Now, that’s another promise we can cling to!
We ALL have junk we’re dealing with. If you think you’re alone – the only one with troubles – you’re mistaken. These are a few of what’s on my prayer list recently for friends and their families – and sometimes acquaintances.
A child hooked on drugs – and/or selling.
The list goes on and on. And, He knows them all.
God is working…
