How often we are quick to blame God for not answering our prayers even when we have our own share of the blame. A sister said to, Pastor ” I have made several attempts and commitments and yet it looks like the situation is impossible and my reply was, God is FAITHFUL.
God will not reason with unprofitable talks remember like the book of Job said.
Job 15:3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?
I often tell people how busy God is thinking about every soul and things He has created and making sure they are all in perfect position, and to think of Him reasoning with idle talks, is a joke for the trash.
Think about HIM managing over 7 billion souls on the earth…. This is why we must be prepared and ever ready before coming to God in prayers. Imagine coming before a president of a country without adequate preparation in your request?
True, God is not a man but our receiving from Him is dependent on our spiritual preparedness to receive. god is much more willing to give than we are ready to ask.
PRAYERS GOD WILL NOT ANSWER
- THE PRAYER OF SINNERS –
John 9:31 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. A sinner is the one without God in his heart. God sees them as USERS when they pray. It is better to pray to God having a relationship than to seek for God’s help when your relationship with Him cant sustain the provision.
- LUSTFUL PRAYERS:- A prayer with a wrong motive. desiring what you know is not a NEED but a selfish WANT. James 4:3
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
- UNCOMMITTED TO KINGDOM MATTER: A man who does not care abut the heartbeat of God, God has no reason to care about his request. The greatest spiritual investment on earth and in heaven is soul winning. A man that can be involve in the exercise of soul winning will always have God to answer his needs…...John 15:16
16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
- FAITHLESS PRAYERS: Of what need is prayer when you have alternatives. God does not share is glory and he is yet to. Faith is the only permitted why to receiving from God.. James 1:6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord
