When You Pray

Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.” Exodus 3:9-10 NKJV

Many times you feel that God is not listening to your prayers. You pray year in, year out and the situation remains the same. But when you read this conversation between Moses and God, you realize that God is listening. The children of Israel had been enslaved in Egypt for a number of years. During that time they had been looking to God for deliverance. I’m sure many of them felt like giving up but they continued to pray

God answers prayer in his own time. He is not hurried by your desperation. But He moves in His perfect timing. When you think that God is not responding, many times He is working out the details to give you an expected end. God had Moses training, taking care of sheep as preparation for the mission to take His people out of Egypt. The man he was before his encounter with God, killed a man in a fight. The man who came from the field taking care of the sheep, had the patience to lead the people. Your wait time is the period of time God is putting your plan for deliverance in motion.

Thought for Today: Never get tired waiting on God

Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
