Charles Stanley Devotional God Acts on Your Behalf – Do you trust God? The answer from most believers is often yes, but how true is that?
Does it reflect in your prayer life? When your need is urgent but God isn’t answering as soon as you desire? Do you still trust him? Some believers at this point will doubt that the lord has his children’s best interest at heart. However, Isaiah 64 vs. 4 assures us that God acts on behalf of those who wait for him.
Joseph had to wait in very difficult circumstances before the lord set him free from prison and gave him authority as a ruler in Egypt, from the view point of an outsider and unbeliever, it did look as though God was not working on Joseph’s behalf, but from a heavenly perspective, events were right on track.
For all Christians the same is true in our lives, in a period of waiting, God could be preparing for an answer that will come at just the right time or he might be teaching you to trust him, so you can work by faith rather than sign, its also possible that he is not answering because you desire or request might involve something that is against his will and he is trying to protect you from it.
You may never know the reason for God not answering your prayers but you can always trust in his goodness wisdom and love. Trust in the lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.
