Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
God heard you when you prayed. He did not reject your prayer even if you thought he did. And if you stopped yourself from praying because you thought he would reject it, go ahead and pray. He will hear you and he will hear your prayer.
Maybe, you’re thinking it would be safer to just not pray. Then, if the answer doesn’t come you won’t be disappointed. God’s word says he will hear and because he will not reject your prayer, he will answer. It may not be how or even when you expect the answer, but it will come.
If you’re thinking, why bother, let me tell you why. God can do immeasurably more than you think he can or than you can even conceive of. Sometimes when the answer comes in a different way than we expected we’re surprised. Sometimes, friend, I am truly amazed and as one of his intercessors I just simply stand in awe when I see him answer my prayer.
Take a moment with me here to realize who we are praying to. We are praying to the Lord God Almighty, the God of the Universe! You have probably heard, as I have, several people running around talking about how the Universe spoke to them. Well, we pray to the God of the Universe; the God of Israel, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the living God. We pray to our God. Yes, he is all that and more.
Now, let me share the best part with you. God will not withhold his love from you. That’s right. Even if you feel your prayer was accepted, perhaps you’re still thinking God will somehow reject you. Not a chance. He loves you.
So, just remember, God has not rejected your prayer or withheld his love from you. So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and pray. You have nothing to fear and everything to hope for.
