Another Chance

Ellen J. Barrier

How We Pray Determines How God Will Answer.
When we pray to God, and thereby, petition him, it is not within our judgment to analyze how or when,  he should grant our request, or to use our knowledge, to interject our opinion on the subject matter, that we are petitioning him about, when we are praying. Neither should we listen to others who are giving their opinions.

We must stay steadfast in prayer and focus on the fact that, God is supernatural, and with him all things are possible.
Gabriel said, “For with God nothing shall be impossible.”
St. Luke 1:37
In the case of Zacharias; he had been praying for a child. When God was prepared to grant his request, he used his knowledge to interject his opinion, which was irrelevant. And found out that this is a defiant act with God. And there is punishment that will follow.  Zacharias, didn’t believe that God was qualified to give him a child at the time God had chosen to do so.
Like most people, if the answer doesn’t come in the time they want it to, they give up. This is what Zacharias, had done. His mind wasn’t allowing him to look beyond the human’s educational process, and see the supernatural powers that God possesses.  Because he doubted God, he was punished. God took away his speech.  (St. Luke 1:21-25 & 57-64)
Scripture: James 1:67
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like the wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man (person) think that he shall receive anything of the Lord.
