Do you ever feel like God is not answering your prayers or worse, not even listening? I can remember as a girl asking my dad if I could go somewhere with my friends and waiting for an answer. And waiting. And waiting. My friends would poke me and try to get me to hurry him along. I knew better. I would motion for them to wait. And wait. He was thinking and would not be rushed. I would get my answer, when my dad was ready for me to have it.
I came across this verse the other day during my daily reading:
37 “So Saul asked God, “Shall I go down after the Philistines? Will you give them into Israel’s hand?” But God did not answer him that day.” 1 Samuel 14:37
God doesn’t work on our timetable. But he never has. He will answer when he is ready.
