We shouldn’t lose faith if our prayers aren’t answered immediately. We’re told to not lose heart. Jesus instructs us to carry on in faith and confidence, knowing that God is a fair and generous judge, a loving father, who will answer according to His will and in His time.
You should realize that you are naturally impatient because of the world you live in and the speed at which you are accustomed to things operating. We tend to expect “e-mail speed” answers to prayer.
Strengthen your faith. That’s the bottom line. Faith is the currency of the spiritual realm.
If you haven’t taken a close look at your personal environment in a while, then we suggest you do. Check out what sort of shape it’s in. Don’t live in a poisoned environment.
Live a first-class life. Keep your environment free from the thought poison of gossip.
“Giving up inconsequential things doesn’t seem like such a sacrifice anymore, when I consider that I’m investing in forever.”
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” –Jesus
