I don’t want to miss it.
After I finish praying, my eyes should be wide open, watching for what God is going to do.
Because he answers.
In Genesis, Abraham sent his servant back to his homeland to find a bride for his son, Isaac. When the servant reached the well outside of the town he was travelling to, he prayed to God, asking for success in finding the right bride.
“Before he was finished praying…”, Rebekah arrived at the well.
Rebekah has been chosen by God to become Isaac’s wife. And she showed up at the well while the servant was still praying.
Does God answer my prayers like this?
Does he answers your’s like this?
I know he does this for me. Some times, he changes my perspective while I’m praying and I realize during my prayer that he has already provided an answer. Other times, he responds right away in the next thing that happens to me. And other prayers he answers by opening up my eyes so I can watch him orchestrate the answer. These are ‘wait’ answers because it’s not the right time yet. These responses can take months to come together but they are always supernatural and always good.
James tells us to pray expecting an answer.
Open our eyes.
We just asked the Creator of the Universe to intervene in our life.
Let’s not miss it when he does.
Thank you for answering our prayers, Abba Father.
