God is at Work and is Answering Your Prayers

So often when we pray we wonder if God has heard us or we wonder why we never seem to get an answer. We are told in:
Isa 30:19 For the people shall dwell in Zion at Jerusalem: thou shalt weep no more: he will be very gracious unto thee at the voice of thy cry; when he shall hear it, he will answer thee.
God hears us when we cry out to Him. He says He answers. Yet, we seem to not see the answers even though He says that He does answer. Years ago, the Holy Spirit told me to stop praying the leaves off of the tree. The leaves will come back in another season, so this makes only for a temporary fix to the problem. The problem usually goes much deeper. The best fix is to chop down the tree and pull up the roots so it can never grow again.
I was watching a man digging up a small bush and working very hard to get the roots out. It was not an easy task. Our roots are the same. Sometimes there are many that are so tangled with each other and other things. This takes time to unravel and remove these. God is doing this in each one of us. He is going to the root. He does just not want us free, He desires for us to be free indeed. He does not just want to remove the leaf from the tree; He wants to stop the leaf from coming back at a later time. This is where our faith must come in. We must stand by faith, knowing that He has heard our cry and is answering us. We just donít always know the work that has to be done to get all of the root causes out of us so we may be free indeed. Be encouraged. When we cry out to Him, He does hear us and will answer us. He cannot lie. His Word is true.
