Often times we may slack in our prayer lufe because we simply often times lack true faith in the LORD'S promise to us. I have been told that GOD always answers prayer in one of three ways; yes, no, not yet. Can we today become as Jesus when He prayed to His Father in Luke 22, that if it be His will let this cup...this bitter cup...of suffering pass from Him. We often want the LORD to exempt us from various sufferings or all sufferings. Yet, the Bible tells us explicitly that we all will have to suffer for Christ's sake. What if in our suffering our answer from LORD Father GOD was 'no'?
Angels from Heaven strengthened Jesus. God gave Jesus the fortitude to endure the suffering and the Cross. For this reason, we have salvation, forgiveness, healing, and deliverance in the name of Jesus. Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved except for the name of Jesus.
Often our salvation is not found in the yes, that we want and desire, but in the no that the Father wills. Perhaps, this is where our true victory is found. So, embrace the Father's will for your life....
