Today’s Scripture – 27 Sept 2020

My New Testament reading today was James, 1st and 2nd Peter. I didn’t get very far into the book of James when these verses stood out, which means share those verses.

“But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind. [7] Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. [8] Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.”

James 1:6-8 NLT

I have had many people tell me “Bobby, God is not answering my prayers”! Folks, there are many reasons why your prayers are hindered. Not having a relationship with God, unrepentant sin, lack of faith, not in His will, and demonic interference – yes, Satan tries to stop prayers from being answered, but not from being heard. You can read about that in Daniel when Gabriel tells Daniel about why his answer to his prayer was delayed. But, what I hear alot also is “I prayed and I hope God will answer”. I hope! Folks, saying “I hope” is a lack of faith! You are not believing that God can answer your prayers. You’re believing that God is not all powerful! You may say with your lips that He is, but your heart says something else. Folks, that is wavering in our faith! What does James say about wavering faith….we should not expect to receive anything from the Lord!
