...Do not fear, from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come because of your words.  Daniel 10:12

We all have goals, dreams, and visions in life.  We pray about them and try to hold fast, because with faith in Jesus, we believe they will come to pass. And, when they do; it is the most wonderful feeling in the world.  A dream becoming reality; a prayer answered, and our faith in God strengthened even more.

However, there are times the enemy will cloud the vision God gives us.  He may not be able to read our minds, but he can hear our words.  He sees our actions (and reactions) and knows our hot buttons.  He knows just what buttons to push, and when to push them to get our minds off the vision.  He would like nothing better than to steal our dreams.  But he can't steal our dreams, unless we let him.  This is why it's so important for us to hold fast our confession of faith.  It's so important to be diligent in our faith. 

"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour" (1 Peter 5:8) 

Disappointment can open a door for the enemy to slip in and steal, kill and destroy our hopes and dreams. There’s a song entitled, “When God is Silent”, that I truly love.  The song talks about how when God is silent He is giving us more time to pray.  If you’ve prayed and prayed for something and it just hasn't come to pass; don’t stop believing that it won’t happen.  Keep praying, praising and believing in God’s word.  After you’ve prayed; starting to PUSH!  Praise Until Something Happens!!!   

The song goes on to say, “There are times when we pray to God for an answer, and it seems that all hope is gone.  There is no need to spend time worrying, just fall down on your needs again and again”.  Our Lord and Savior, prayed the same prayer three times in the Garden, the night before He gave His life for us (Matthew 26:36-44); then the Lord sent the angels to minister unto Him to give Him the strength to make it to the cross.  If you believe God is working all things out to your benefit; then you have to trust that His timing is part of that.  He wouldn't have given His only Son if He wasn't going to keep His promise to us.

I want to encourage you this day, not to be disappointed at what appears to be a lack of results in prayer. We have no idea what the Lord is doing on our behalf to answer our prayers.  We cannot see it; but rest assured He is working it out. What He requires from us is faith to believe the Word of God is true.  Just because you FEEL the answer isn't coming; don’t let the enemy make you BELIEVE your prayer has been denied.  Remember, what our scripture said, from the very first day, God heard your prayers.”  Therefore, do as Daniel did and keep your eyes focused on Jesus; keep praying in faith, remembering to thank Him for all He has done and all He is doing in your life.
