Have you hoped, wished and prayed with the best intentions for guidance or certain answers, and nothing seems to be happening? Sometimes what appears to be a problem or inaction is actually an answered prayer in disguise. When we ask for help, God may dismantle the old to make room for the new. Or maybe it is just not the right time to proceed with deep seeded longings. Always ask for divine will and timing, and for guidance as you act upon wisdom given to your heart and soul. Ask the Spirit to make transitions smooth and harmonious for yourself and everyone involved. Pray for the highest good for everyone, always and in all ways.
Four Types of Answered Prayers
- If the request is off target — God says “NO.” You’ve got to be kidding!
- If the timing is wrong — God says “SLOW.” Wait…
- If you are not ready — God says “GROW.”
- If the request is on target, the timing is right, and you are ready — God says “It’s a GO!”
Sometimes delay has to be. Our lives are so interconnected, so bound by circumstances that to let our desire have instant fulfillment might, in many cases, cause another to go unanswered.
But think for a moment of the divine love and thoughtful care that seek to harmonize and reconcile all of our desires and longings and prayers; delay is not denial, not even withholding. It is the opportunity for God to work out our unique purposes and accomplish our desires in the most wonderful way possible for all of us. Yes, all is well.
Is your deepest longing and prayer currently a NO, a SLOW, a GROW, or a GO? Trust divine timing and will always and in all ways. Be still and seek God’s presence; listen and receive wisdom and guidance for your prayers and petitions.
