You Asked for It series – “Why No Miracle?”

Why No Miracle?

How do we respond when our prayers seem to go unanswered? What do you do when the miracle doesn't happen? In this message from the "You Asked For It" series, Pastor Dwight explore this question of faith.

It’s not easy when you don’t receive something you desperately need. This happens in prayer. We take our requests to God, thinking he will bless us with whatever we ask for, like a genie in a lamp. But it’s disappointing when we see our prayers go unanswered. It puts thoughts of disbelief in our heads, and we start to think maybe God’s got better things to do than listen to us. But we’re wrong! We have to believe that God has a hand in all of this and accept what’s happening.

Ultimately, He has control, and that in itself is comforting. So next time you have a prayer need that you feel is reaching deaf ears, just keep in mind that He’s got this. Maybe it’s time to just be still and know that He is God!
