The Wonder of it All (Point of Grace, 1998)

It's amazing to me how God often reigns down blessings when I least expect them. I can find myself in prayer for months (sometimes years), but not see an answer. Often, the Lord will turn my heart to focus more on Him rather than the object of my prayer. He leads me to a deeper level of trust and dependence upon Him. I find contentment and suddenly, that thing for which I prayed just doesn't appear as important.

Frequently, the Lord will chose that exact time to send an answer or work a miracle in regards to my long forgotten prayer. I find myself in awe of His perfect timing. For certainly, He's proven that the answers or results I often seek are not for the time during which I seek them. However, He hears my heart and never forgets my prayers; He takes time to prepare my heart and spirit for His blessings. Then, He blesses. Oh, and when He does, it's so sweet. Oh taste and see that the Lord is good! (Psa. 34:8)

So, remember to hold fast to the confession of your hope without wavering for He who promised is faithful! (Heb. 10:23) Sometimes, the answer is no. But there are other times that He will just blow your mind with what He's doing on your behalf (rather you see the manifestation now or later)!
