A Place Where Danyelle shares her heart and mind.
The Lord said, “My people do not like to be told no, wait, or move.” He told me that He answers all prayers. Sometimes, the answers just don’t get to you because their are forces working against you obtaining. Now because I am God, I can tell the archangels to bring the answers immediately, but some things I realize Daniel, if I give them to you immediately, you may not learn fully how to trust me.
Imagine God giving us everything we ask for in spite of it causing us to be self-absorb, selfish, prideful, and arrogant.
And anyways, who are we that God cannot tell us no? He told Jesus no.
Read Matthew 26:39, Jesus ask the Father to let the cup of death and suffering pass from Him, but then said, nevertheless if it be thou will.
Well, He died didn’t He. So God really did tell Him no, but look who benefitted…We Did. Aren’t you glad God said, ‘No.’
See, some things we pray for, we think we are ready for but in reality, we aren’t. I believe the prince of Persia is still holding ransom some of our answers, just long enough for us to get the courage to fight like Jacob until God blesses us.
If there is two things I hate, they are waiting and moving.
I realize that some of the things we ask God for, He hasn’t said, ‘No’, just ‘Wait.’
My mind went back to when I was a child. I would ask mother for a snack and she’d say, ‘wait a minute.’ In my mind, I could watch the clock and at a minute ask again. But her minute far exceeded the clocks minute. In her mind, she already knew what minute she would give me the snack, but in my mind, she was lying to me.
See, some of us feel like the child who has been lied too. We know God said, “Ask and it shall be given,” but we are asking and He’s not giving. He’s just like momma. He is saying wait a minute and our minute is not His minute. Momma was waiting until dinner was done so that the snack wouldn’t ruin the dinner. Could it be that God knows if you got what you prayed for now, it would ruin what needed to come before it.
Example: He is going to give you a business, but He needs to give you patience first so you will know how to treat your customers and your staff.
He is going to give you a home, but he needs you to learn how to be committed to paying your rent every month in preparation for your mortgage.
I know that hit someone!

Did you know that when you pray, you are praying for your victory?
Think about that for a moment. What if the difference in what you are doing right now, whether you win or lose, is based upon if you pray and how often you pray. Tell me, would you win?
We often wonder why prayer is so important. We also often forget that prayer is one of the most powerful and productive disciplines God gave to His children. So if prayer is so important, and if it is such a powerful and productive discipline, then why aren't we praying? Hold on, we will definitely revisit this particular question to find out the answer.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 (NLT) says, "Never stop praying." (NIV) "Pray continually." (KJV / NASB) "pray without ceasing."
Now here's another one for you.
Luke 18:1 (NLT) says, "One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up." (NIV) "Then Jesus told the disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up." (NASB) "Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart."
With this we understand, not only do we need to pray constantly, we are to continue and never give up. WOW!
