How many times have you thought, “Where is my answer? Why is it taking so long?” The truth is that these are the wrong kinds of questions to ask. If you have to ask that question, you’re not in faith. I know that sounds harsh but it’s true.
If you’re looking at the circumstances to determine what God is doing about your problem, you’ve missed it and you’re not in faith.
Faith doesn’t look at the circumstances to determine anything. It looks beyond the circumstances to what God has already said about your problem and receives the answer.
In Romans 4:17 we see that God calls things that are not as though they were
Romans 4:17b (KJV) 17 … even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Then in Isaiah we read that God declares the end from the beginning.
Isaiah 46:10 (KJV) 10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
God doesn’t look at the circumstances to determine what He wants. He looks at the answer and calls it in. What if He looked at the darkness and said, “Wow, it’s dark out there!” It would have stayed dark. That wouldn’t have produced light. But, He didn’t do that. He looked and said, “Light be!” And, as you know, light was!
Genesis 1:3 (YLT) 3 and God saith, `Let light be;’ and light is.
Even when you don’t see any signs of manifestation, you must keep focused on the Word that you have prayed and know that God always honors His Word that you have prayed in faith. His Word always works but we have to believe and receive. We have our part to do and God will always do His part. He is faithful, faithful, faithful!
Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
