Romans 8:38-39
New International Version (NIV)

38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When you have a problem and it has not been solved despite your prayers, have you ever been told, ďYour prayers werenít answered because you donít have enough faith.Ē? That was a word of condemnation. Despite the good intentions of the person who told you this, it was a condemnation. If you are a Christian, you are never under condemnation. But those words still hurt you. You think God doesnít love you like He loves others. This is the reason you need to commit Romans 8:38-39 to memory. God loved you before you became a Christian. God loves you now. God will love you forever. For you, this is a constant.

Romans 8:28
New International Version (NIV)

28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

God has a purpose for you and He works for your good. God works in His Own time and His answer to your prayer may not be what you are expecting. It may be BETTER than what you are expecting and it also may be a different path opened to you. You belong to Him. Keep your eyes, ears, and heart open for your answer is coming.

Galatians 5:17
New International Version (NIV)

17 For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want.

Examine your desires and ask yourself if God actually want to have what you are asking for. If you want to win the lottery, would that help you grow in your walk with Him? I have to confess here, Iíve bought many a lottery ticket. I even prayed to the Lord asking here to let me win. I even tried to bribe Him offering him a substantial cut of the winnings. God has wisely ignored this prayer. It wasnít my faith that was the problem. It was the desire. After all, Jesus Himself said it was extremely difficult for rich people to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Gambling itself isnít evil, but the desires behind gambling often are. The consequences of gambling often lead to destruction. Thatís why it is best to avoid it.

Besides gambling, you might be praying for an individual to start loving you. If God has someone better for you; that might be the reason God hasnít answered your particular prayer.

Whatever you pray for, you must remember that God loves you and always works for your good for as long as you follow him.

Romans 15:13
New International Version (NIV)

13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Do you trust God? Just like all loving parents, God wants to bless all of His children. He loves you. Have you ever heard somebody tell you, ďCareful what you wish for; you might just get it.Ē? Have you ever received something you really wanted, only to find that you really didnít want it after all? Have you ever dated somebody and youíve watched the clock hoping the night would end as soon as possible? Trust God. He will work your present circumstances for your good.

Lord, let me trust You. As a child trusts his mother and father, likewise let me trust You. I know you love me. You have a wonderful life set forward for me. Let my heart be at peace and simply put my trust in You. In the Precious Name of Jesus, Amen.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
