NEVER GIVE UP!Paul Dhinakaran

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God."    (Philippians 4:6)

The Dhinakarans My dearly beloved, Our God is the One who hears our every request and answers them at the right time.

If my daughter, Sharon desires anything, she would immediately ask me to buy it. If I give excuses, she would not leave me. Rather, she would say, "Daddy, I know that you will buy me whatever I ask you. You would never say No. If I ask you for one dress, you will buy me three dresses. But If you say 'No' this time, you will surely buy me next time. So I would not worry because you are my good father"

Yes, my beloved, our loving Lord is our good father. Whatever we ask in His name, He will surely grant us. Never will He say 'No' to us. Many a time, we would think that God does not hear our prayers. Read an incident from the book of Matthew 15:22-28, "A Canaanite woman from that vicinity came to him, crying out, ‘Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me! My daughter is demon-possessed and suffering terribly.’ Jesus did not answer a word. So his disciples came to him and urged him, ‘Send her away, for she keeps crying out after us.’ He answered, ‘I was sent only to the lost sheep of Israel.’ The woman came and knelt before him. ‘Lord, help me!’ she said. He replied, ‘It is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.’ ‘Yes, it is, Lord,’ she said. ‘Even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their master’s table.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, you have great faith! Your request is granted.’ And her daughter was healed at that moment."

My beloved, you may say that you are a sinner and so God would not hear your prayers. Don’t think that He has not answered it, since He does not immediately give answers to your prayers. If He has not answered it right away, does not mean that God has not heard your prayers. He will surely answer you. According to Philippians 4:6," Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." God will hear your prayers. So don't give up, just keep praying with thanksgiving. He is a sovereign God and knows what is best for you. He will do everything in the best interest of your future. So never be worried. Every request of yours will go as an incense before God and He will do everything in His time and your sorrows will be turned into joy.


Prayer:

Dear Lord,
Lord, I know you are a prayer answering God. I believe that nothing is impossible for you. Your Words says that whatever we request to You in prayer, You will surely answer us according to Your will. Lord, I commit all my desires to You. Lord, I know that you will perfect everything which concerns me. In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
