Prayers from so many people rains in heaven. But it is easy to ask than to receive! This is not because the giver is weak or stingy or do not have power or has limited resources and the treasures houses are easily depleted. He is ever willing to quickly part with what we need while we ask. But to be Franck, it is easier to ask than to receive bacuase of the wrong attittude we put while praying!
It is very possible to spend hours in the presence of God but to listen for few seconds or minutes to hear God give His promises and answers to our requests. Such patience are really not available by us in His presence . It is either we jet out quickly or discouragingly close the door of our hearts. To every child of his, He always communicates His mind. Another problem is not with hearing. Wr do hear God’s speak from His heart to us, but since we cannot understand the “How", it becomes issues.
We doubt those promises of God. because what God always says He will do seem to often negate the natural and human’s laws. All that God did promise anybody at a particular time always have a big question of “How” in front of it. Various human and natural norms and laws will tend to barricade God’s promises in the mind of men with this question of “How?” . This is what really precede doubt. The wrong handling of the question “How” will incubate doubt. “How” was a void, formless and darkened earth was going to be garnished with all kinds of creatures? “How?” ” Within the space of six days. “How?” , the scientist who really believe in the s spontaneity of earth are still putting that big question of “How?” on the claim of creation. When Noah proclaimed the coming flood, the men of then quickly call the standard and place it beside the statement of promise. There had never been rain “How” will this be then.They all satisfied it very impossible.
“How?” is always the Genesis of confirmed impossibility and doubt! After a while, Abraham wandered by and in the land of promise, also carrying about the vision that God has given him. He looked at the promises of God once again when God reminded him His intension, and argued in Genesis 17:17. He placed the big police of “How?” infront of of the promise of God to probe the possibility of God’s statement. I’m, 100 yearsrs and Sarah is 90 “How?” in Genesis 18:12, Sarah laughed when she placed the big question of “How?” before the promises of God. She concluded “ impossible “! Men make their assumptions and conclusions based on the content of the natural laws, norms and human weakness. Sometimes, when a deadline is set and there come promises which the human reasoning faculty cannot accommodate directly or indirectly, the big question of “How” will be drawn out, negate God and His word.
“ What God wants to do will arouse the principle and practice of logic among intellectuals and provide fields of debate. The question of “How?” was used by the chief economist officer and the minister of state in the days of Elisa. He quickly spoke his common sense and findings gleaned from his research. These completely negate God’s promises.
Well, with God, It does not matter the inferences derived from the judgment of “How?” doubt and reasoning of men. Beacuse with God, all things are possible. Marry the mother of Jesus had never heard in history that a woman had a child without an afair with a man she asked “ “How?” Luk 1; 34. However, she said, Let it be Luke 1:38, eventually, Mary said according to your work let it be. I have found this three words very important and as a better answer. When our doubt and experiences, natural and research findings and expert comments are given about a situation and God still keep sounding His promises contrary to unanimous conclusions of all to better answer like marry “ let it be according to your words.”
it is quite better than conclude God’s words impossible. Because let all things fail, it is very impossible for those words to fail, they cannot fail. Where there is a promise for any situation, do not write it off, rather proclaim to all let it be. The same angel came to Zechariah and Mary, but their responses were different. One agreed to the inference of ‘ the police of “ “How? ”and became dumb, while the other, Mary said let it be.
You do not need to understand the “How” and when, but give the Lord the chance to perform His works. It is better when you cannot comprehend “How”? the almighty will handle a situation to keep quiet if you do not have the words of faith to say. ~Or better still, keep saying: Let it be according to your words. Lord!AMEN
