You've prayed and prayed, but nothing is happening. I hear this all the time from my community members, so in today's show, I'm sharing how to trust God when it feels like He isn't listening.
You’re doing all the right things.
You pray, read scripture, go to church, and volunteer at a local ministry. And no matter what you do, it feels like God isn’t listening.
Yeah, I’ve been there too, and it’s so incredibly frustrating. I mean, scripture teaches us that all we have to do is ask and He will give it to us.
Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.. Matthew 7:7-8 NLT
So why isn’t our Father listening?
