The Answer Has Already Been Released

Here I was asking God why He hadn’t done certain things in my life.

God, don’t you care?

You said You would take care of me.

Then an opportunity that I missed years ago came around again. 

And now I realize that God had answered my prayer years ago, but when the answer came, I didn’t recognize it because all I could see was fear and unbelief.

I’m not smart enough.

This is too good to be true.

I was like the church who was constantly praying for Peter to be released from prison, but when God released the answer – when the answer to their prayer knocked on the door, they didn’t open the door because they didn’t believe. Rhoda, a servant girl – a slave girl, recognized the answer. Not the church. And she just didn’t believe that it was Peter, but she knew his voice.

But thank God Peter knocked and knocked again until they opened the door.

And thank God that He caused the opportunity that I missed last time to knock again – until I opened the door.

For some of us, the answer has already been released and I pray that we all recognize it when it comes.

 

[Reference scripture: Acts 12:5-16]
