WHEN PRAYERS ARE NOT BEING ANSWERED

By Edwin Christiaan

When prayers are not being answered it could be because of un-forgiveness.

Jesus said,

“Whenever you stand up to pray, you must forgive what others have done to you. Then your Father in heaven will forgive your sins.” Mark‬ ‭11:25-26‬ ‭CEV

Or,

You don’t have faith, but instead you doubt.

Here is what Jesus told His disciples,

“Have faith in God. I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.” ‬ Mark‬ ‭11:22-24‬ ‭NLT

The Scriptures further says,

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For [...]

NOTHING IS TOO HARD OR IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD

By Edwin Christiaan

“Is anything too hard for the Lord?” Genesis‬ ‭18:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The prophet Jeremiah once prayed,

“O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you!” Jeremiah‬ ‭32:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Job said this to God,

“I know that you can do anything, and no one can stop you.” ‬‬ Job‬ ‭42:2‬ ‭NLT

In the words of Jesus,

“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.” Matthew‬ ‭17:20‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Mark‬ ‭10:27‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” Mark‬ ‭11:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Again,

“If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark‬ ‭9:23‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

YES!

“The things which are impossible with men are possible with [...]

DID GOD GIVE YOU THE GIFT OF MARRIAGE?

By Edwin Christiaan

The apostle Paul said,

“But I wish everyone were single, just as I am. Yet each person has a special gift from God, of one kind or another.” 1. Corinthians‬ ‭7:7‬ ‭NLT

So, if God called you to get married, you need to know that,

“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father.” James‬ ‭1:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

In other words, if indeed God told you that you will get married, then the spouse He gives you will be a good one, a good gift. Therefore, this God given marriage will never end up in a divorce.

Jesus put it this way,

“Since they are no longer two but one, let no one split apart what God has joined together.” Matthew‬ ‭19:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

You cannot separate what God has put together. God will protect it, and the couple will always grow closer to Him and each other. It will be blessed and not cursed, leading you away from Christ! The purpose of a marriage from God is for it to bring glory [...]
