I have been led to share something with you.
We need to be mindful of our prayers being answered. This is important an and essential understanding that can make or break your relationship with God.
The way one envisions God answering a prayer can be detrimental and should never be the case. When we pray we need to give it all to God unless you have been spiritually led to pray and ask for specifics. Otherwise, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment which leads to distancing ourselves from God because His answers to our prayers do not line up with the vision we have for the prayer to be answered.
When we do this we do not allow for God to bless us in a way that can lead to other blessings. We want the abundant materialistic blessing. Remember the word says: Luke 16:10-12
10 “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? 12 And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else’s property, who will give you property of your own?
I am guilty of this and wanted to encourage others to be mindful of your current blessings. You can overlook an answered prayer and that can prolong the manifestation of growth spiritually. These kind of thoughts affect the way you feel and can result in adverse behaviors toward God, all over your perception of God not meeting your expectations. Let’s clear the air; God has already exceeded your expectations, we are the ones that do not meet Gods expectations and because of Jesus we are forgiven and loved.
My prayer was answered and because I had expectations of how God should answer, I did not glorify God the way I would have if the answered prayer met my selfish standards and expectations.
