WHY YOUR PRAYERS HAVE NOT BEEN ANSWERED
All other places in scripture just tell us why we don’t have, they say we ask. But James broke it down.
There are times you can ask and you’ll still not receive.
That means there are times you did it correctly and yet you do not get result and he’s telling you why.
That every time you ask and you do not receive, it could be because you ask… And he says that the motivation is that he will consume it upon your lust.
Now read it. One two read koinonia
“Or you do ask God for them and yet fail to receive because you ask with wrong purpose and evil selfish motives, your intention is when you get what you desire to spend it in sensual pleasures.
So, the bible says, answered prayer is not only based on the faith of the believer but based on God’s vetting of what that answer will do with respect to his kingdom.
That it is possible to ask correctly but in God’s intelligence, he sees that granting you that answer will not make for kingdom come.
In the school of prayer, it’s not only faith that is important. Your motive. Your faith is correct. You’re fasting, you’re praying.
But heaven will not just come to say give him power. They will vet your motives. Why did you want the power.
Why do you still desire it. Lord give me wealth, give me influence, give me a child, give me a wife, give me a husband.
And God is looking at your desire. Listen, you ask and you have not and the bible says because you ask AMISS.
Amiss means that your motive has already been corrupted. Have you seen where the depreciation of energy in prayer for many people is not equal to the results they obtain.
They pray for one year. They fast for forty days. And from the first day of that prayer, their motive was already wrong.
Lord give me a song. You stroll to the bush with the guitar and shout and sing and you don’t hear anything.
Why? Because you said the last time I went somewhere, they laughed at me. I need to let them know I’m not an anyhow person. That motive already, God says no.
If you want a song so that your songs will be a ladder for nations to hear and to cause the fire of revival to come, you will not pray for forty days. I guarantee you.
Make reference to my teaching “For your glory” please part 1 and 2. “For Your Glory”.
One Secret in my life and I will not lie to you, I stand by the God of heaven. Is that most of my desires and my requests are never about me, myself and I…
I’m not the final bus stop to everything I ask God. Everything I ask God to give me or do in my life. I am an usher.
Eventually he’s the final bus stop.
Lord, give me a child. Why? Because I’m a woman. No. Give me a child. Why? Because Penina is laughing at me. No, give me a child.
Why? Because I’ve been barren for 10 years. No. Lord, give me a child.
Why? An opportunity to be able to bring it a priest on the earth.
God says, now you’re talking now. Lord increase my prayer group. Why? Because my brother’s prayer group is expanding and God says nonsense.
There are more important things to be done. Lord increase my prayer group, why? Because people think i’m not anointed, Lord increase my church. Why? So that I can show people that even from this village, the whole world can see Jesus. No.
It looks like it’s a nice prayer point. Lord, I just want people to see you in and through my life and he says, who is this calling me??? There is a language that God cannot resist.
Thy kingdom come! Thy kingdom come means your life is like a funnel, it channels everything into Christ; prosperity, lifting, etc.
For the sake of thy house. I desire thy prosperity. Lord, increase my prayer life. Increase my wealth, increase my influence.
Praise the Lord. Are we blessed? Your intention and your motives.
So, there is prayer that causes people to not receive because they ask amiss and from Amplified we see that amiss means wrong motives.
It means prayer that is born out of selfishness. It means prayer that has an unrighteous agenda.
This leads us to a very interesting… Would I say sub topic that I will just touch a little. And then we’ll move to something else “the will of God” write it down.
Prayer is only answered according to scripture, When that prayer is within the boundary, of the will of God.
Please, listen to me very carefully. That just because you are praying and you are making petitions.]
Remember, we’re looking at part 2, the second dimension of prayer. That in obtaining promises. And in making your petitions.
The boundary of your answered prayer is the will of God, very important, John 9:31 the B part, and then we’ll go to Ephesians 5. We start from 15 to 17. John 9. God is helping us tonight. John 9. Now look up please.
