God’s timing for our prayers is not like ours. As believers in Christ, we know that God’s Word says in Isaiah 55:8 , “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.”
The more we dwell on the answer we’re expecting…The longer it seems to take for that answer. It’s as if time is running in slow motion.
Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
If we will re-focus by giving God the praise, that He so greatly deserves, it will change our whole outlook on life.
This stems from how much trust you have placed in Jesus. How much can we honestly say that we trust our Lord and Savior? Looking back over the years that we’ve known Him, has He ever let us down?
Remember the Aladdin movie where he takes the princess by the hand? Before she received his help, Aladdin (while looking into her eyes, asked her), “Do you trust me?”

However, as an unbeliever, you have nothing to lose…but your soul. (
Mark 8: 36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he shall direct thy paths.
