When YAH Says No To Our Prayer…

12 May

2 Corinthians 12: 7-9, “And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure. Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”

The general consensus among Christians is that YAH always answers prayer. While this is true, it is always in accordance to His will. Many times, our will does not always align with His or in the Lord’s infinite wisdom He chooses not to for our own edification. In the above scripture Paul’s prayer was not answered pertaining to his “thorn in the flesh” with YAH using that to keep him humble during his ministry. 

In Matthew 26:36-56, Jesus prayed to YAH to “let this cup pass from me,” pertaining to the crucifixion but His prayer was not answered, as it was YAH’s will for Jesus to be the offering for the sins of the world. It is important for us all to learn from the trials that we are in. In times of tribulations we need to ask why we are here? What is the lesson to be learned? Will this situation being fixed strengthen me spiritually?

 Once we can answer these questions, we will receive console in either a yes or no answer from The Most High. Know that YAH is a spirit being with infinite wisdom outside of our own understanding. Even if the answer that YAH gives us is no, it is for the betterment for our spiritual walk, Shalom.
