I know exactly how you feel Hun. My prayers weren’t being answered for years (over ten). Not just one but multiple. It felt like a never ending battle.
I felt like I had no purpose. I felt like when I prayed for others they got their breakthrough but I was still stuck waiting for mine.
I have the gift of faith. But it felt like my faith was slipping. All the years were adding up.
I knew God was moving but still felt disappointed and was hoping on everything this time my prayers would be answered.
I felt unable to pray. Not that I lost all faith. I still had it. I still believed. It’s just Everytime I did pray my heart would hurt so badly I couldn’t continue.
I sobbed so much until I couldn’t but somehow I sobbed some more.
I felt really alone in this world. The only thing I could do was pray that someone was praying for me because I could no longer do it.
Someone did start praying for me. And my breakthrough happened. Not all of my prayers has been answered (just a few). But God is for sure working on the rest right now.
I didn’t understand why many others had their prayers answered but now I do.
God was rearranging things. And not just a few things here and there. He was moving mountains to bring my blessing in the background. And He still is!
The things God taught me while waiting are unmeasurable.
I’m more appreciative of my blessing bc it didn’t happen overnight. I find more joy in this blessing.
I literally thank God everyday for answering my prayer. And the things God worked on in me while I was waiting has helped me receive this blessing in a greater capacity.
There will always be opposition bc the devil doesn’t like seeing you blessed. He’s jealous. He sees what favor God has placed on you. He sees God moving things around to bless you. So he sends things to drail or distract you.
But the bible says whatever you have lost you will gain back with interest!
Something I say often is that when your faith is slipping you can borrow the faith of others. Ask God to impress on the heart of someone to pray for you. It’s much more powerful when God does the impressing rather than us asking for someone to pray for us. It’s a matter of the heart of the person praying for you. And God always finds the right one!
I hope and pray that you are encouraged while God is working out the details of your blessing. He is the God of the details.
Once your blessing has arrived it will be exactly what you prayed for and more. God even brings the desires of your heart that you hoped for but never said in prayer.
When God answers that prayer it will be with an explanation point!
Be blessed. 💗
