READ : Isaiah 65:17-25
“Before they call, I will answer: While they are yet speaking, I will hear” (v. 24).
We often wonder if we are praying according to God’s will. Be assured that if God has put something or someone upon our hearts for prayer, He hears us. “WHILE THEY ARE YET SPEAKING,” says the Lord, “I WILL HEAR.” We can also know that when we pray according to His promises, He is faithful to keep them.
Listen to His promises! His Word says that we shall be shown God’s glory, we will be heard as we cry for help, and we will receive the Holy Spirit when we ask. The fruits of the Spirit are ours to claim. We can have the knowledge of His will, spiritual wisdom and understanding, and can be kept from the Evil One.
God promises that He will make us complete in Him, that He will keep us from doing wrong, that the eyes of our heart can be enlightened, that we can know the hope of His calling, and the riches of our inheritance. He offers utterance and discernment. He fulfills every desire for goodness, power, and help when we are suffering; and He promises, most wonderfully, to save us to the uttermost! What wonderful assurances God has given!
We claim Your promises in Your Word, Lord, and trust You to answer. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
