Gifts in Disguise

There are so many times that I wonder why God hasn’t answered my prayers the way I would’ve liked Him to or as quickly as I thought He should. Too often I think I know what’s best for my life and what I need, but I’m not the one who can see the whole picture. There have been times when I have questioned why God never answered a certain prayer that I had, just to realize later why He never did and I go away humming along with Garth Brooks’ song ‘Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers!’ God knows me so much better than I know myself and loves me more than I know, so why wouldn’t I trust Him? When I haven’t seen God answer my prayers, I need to remember it is teaching me to wait upon God and to trust Him in the darkness. Instead of letting difficulties draw me into worrying, I need to try to see them as setting the scene for God to gloriously intervene. We need to always be actively looking for what God is doing in our lives.
