Don't Give Up----Your Prayers Are Being Heard
Did you ever do this... ??? You pray and pray and pray and ask for mercy and grace. You pray for changed hearts. Anything ----any sign at all. And then it happens a little glimmer.. a little ray of hope,
Just like Elijah when he prayed for rain in the midst of a 3 1/2 year drought.. and I Kings 18 reads "So he went up and looked, and said, “There is nothing.” And seven times he said, “Go again.” Then it came to pass the seventh time, that he said, “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!”
So he said, “Go up, say to Ahab, ‘Prepare your chariot, and go down before the rain stops you.’” Now it happened in the meantime that the sky became black with clouds and wind, and there was a heavy rain."
Well, maybe there's a little cloud as small as a man's hand, but it's something, ya know?? Then the darkness, then the black clouds and wind.. and then the rain!!
What you prayed for with all your heart, starts to barely break through. Are you shocked and surprised and say.. oh it's just a little cloud almost in disbelief?? Or is this the beginning of God's answer little by little.
It assures me to NOT give up To keep Asking, Seeking, and Knocking. Matthew 7:7,8 reads,
God's not done.. He doesn't quit. He doesn't give up. Thank God!! I need to keep praying and get in my War Room and pound the heavens even more. Don't give up loved one. Watch the heavens for that little cloud!! And put on your whole armour. It's a spirtual battle we're fighting.
