{ Day 249 }

This is what the Lord says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you, and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land and to reassign its desolate inheritances, to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!'” —Isaiah 49:8-9

Our prayer meetings will not force God to answer us. We cannot in any way do anything to deserve supernatural power. The economy of heaven never works that way. We are in a time of preparation. God is preparing a root system and a foundation for what He will give us in His grace. The longer the time of delay, the greater the joy when the answer comes. More than that, the change that happens to us in the process will protect us when the answer comes. God desires more than our endurance and patience in prayer. He wants us to open our mind and spirits to Him in all the seasons of life. It can be difficult at times, but the Lord desires people of one thing, contending for the fullness of God in every season.


Whatever comes my way, dear Father, whatever season of life in which I find myself, still I long to experience your grace and mercy in abundant fullness. I will seek You with my whole heart, and will await Your loving response with joy.

The longer the time of delay, the greater
the joy when the answer comes.
