I want to offer a bit of encouragement to you today about a situation that seems to be common to all of us who pray.
We’ve all been in the position where we are desperately asking God to answer a prayer. Yes?
We watch and we wait. Watch and wait.
Finally, we see an open door. Yes, we say, thank you Lord!
Believing God has heard us, we walk through the open door only to have the disappointment of it slamming in our face or worse, we walk through, the door shuts behind us and we realize we’re in the wrong room.
The wrong place.
This could be about anything we desired, from that job opportunity, the house we thought was perfect, or the relationship we thought was about to be reconciled in a particular way.
I thought for sure this was answer was from You, Lord. It looked so clear, so right. How could I have been so wrong? What are you doing God? Are you playing with my emotions?
Won’t you please join me today over at Recharge Wednesday to finish reading to find out.
