Keep Praying and Believing God

Many are say­ing, ‘God will nev­er res­cue him!’” Psalm 3:2 NLT

Have you been pray­ing for years that God will save your hus­band, your wife, your chil­dren, or your friends? Does your heart long to see the peo­ple you love serv­ing Him? Are you get­ting dis­cour­aged? Has some­one told you, ”You’re wast­ing your time; They’ll nev­er change?” If so, read what the psalmist wrote: ”Many are they who say of me, There is no help for him in God.’ But You, O Lord, are a shield for me, my glo­ry and the One who lifts up my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me from His holy hill” (vv. 2–4 NKJV). Pay par­tic­u­lar atten­tion to the phrase, “many are they who say.” Every­body has an opin­ion, but until God speaks on the mat­ter, the jury is still out! As long as He’s still on the throne and His promis­es are still true, keep pray­ing and believ­ing God for a mir­a­cle. “But they’re so far from God right now!” you say. They may V be, but read this and rejoice: “The Lord’s hand is not short­ened, that it can­not save; nor His ear heavy, that it can­not hear” (Isa­iah 59:1 NKJV). Your loved one is not too far gone for God. They may be messed up on drugs and alco­hol, hav­ing an affair, or even be in prison. Wher­ev­er they are today, the long arm of God’s grace can reach out and save them. Satan knows that and he wants you to get dis­cour­aged and give up. Don’t do it! Just as pow­er flows through an elec­tric wire, God’s pow­er flows through your prayers. So keep pray­ing and believ­ing God!
