Delay Doesn’t Mean Denial

Blessed are all who wait for him.
                     —Isaiah 30:18

You have prayed earnestly. Urgently. Pleadingly.

But you have received no response—at least none that you can see. Feel familiar?

Don’t quit believing, and don’t stop praying. Delay doesn’t mean denial; presently unanswered doesn’t mean permanently ungranted.

God isn’t going to delete your prayer from his inbox. He will answer. He may delay for reasons unknown to you but known to him.

Never doubt this promise: “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their prayer” (1 Pt 3:12).

Make peace with God’s timing.
