Many times we pray to God to see a miracle. We look at our circumstances, praying with all our hearts for it to change. Nothing happens. Things stay the same and we feel our prayers aren’t being answered.
We become restless, thinking that God doesn’t hear our prayers and we start to question our worth. Asking, why is everyone else’s prayers being answered and not ours? God is not distant. He is not angry and you are not being punished. He hears your prayers. He sees your tears and He witness your battles.
“But then why doesn’t He help me?” You may cry out silently.
“My child, precious to Me. I love you with an everlasting love and nothing you do can separate you from My love. Return to Me and I will show you great and wondrous things. I am your Father and when you seek Me with all your heart, you will find Me. Come home to Me.”
Sometimes, just sometimes, God doesn’t change our circumstances but He wants us to change in it. He can see the future and what will become of us without Him. He cares about you and He knows when He is truly in your heart again, you will honour Him and choose His ways for your life. “For His plans was always to prosper you and not to harm you. To give you a future and a hope.”
My message to you today is that God knows your name and He sees what you are going through.
Jesus gave us a valuable key in Matthew 6:33 “But first seek the Kingdom of God and all its righteousness and all these things shall be added to you.”
Don’t look at your circumstances and why prayers aren’t being answered. Look to God and praise Him for all that He is and that no matter what bad choices you have made in life, He can overwrite them all.
God knows what is best for you. He knows everything about you. He knows your name.
