(Isaiah 55:10-11) For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: (11) So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
God has promised that His word when it goes forth will not return void. When we pray in faith, God promises that it will be answered. Just as the rain comes down to water the earth it does not return until it fulfills its purpose. This is why God gave us the Bible so we could learn of His promises and use them to get the desired results. Often times prayer goes unanswered because we prayed, but we were not prepared to receive. In the Book of James it says a double minded man shall receive nothing. So we need to be confident in what we pray for. The good news is that God promised that if we don't receive what we prayed for it will not return to Him void, but it will return to us again until we receive it. Our concept of time operates on a linear scale. Years keep going by, and we get older as the decades come and go. We have often heard that history will repeat itself. God operates on cycles much like the four seasons. What I mean is that when we pray, God hears us. He answers that prayer and if we are unable to receive it, it returns to Him and He says; No, you do not return to me void, go forth and accomplish what you where sent for. The answered prayer will again come back to us. This cycle will continue until we receive the manifestation of our prayer. That is good news.
So often unanswered prayer is on the receiving end.
(Hebrews 3:1) Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
(Hebrews 4:14-16) Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. (15) For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (16) Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
Don't ever think that just because you didn't pray right that your prayer will not be answered. God is not a legalist. Jesus is the High Priest of our profession or what we say. It is His responsibility to present our prayers unto the Father. So if you didn't pray exactly right I believe the blood of Jesus is worthy enough to cleanse any indiscretions. Jesus experienced everything we experienced yet without sin. There is no better candidate to stand in the office of High Priest on our behalf than Jesus Christ. Never turn loose of what you are believing God for. Learn to receive what God has to offer. Come boldly to the Throne of Grace to obtain mercy and find grace in time of need. God Bless You!
