Have you ever had the sense that you didn't ask the right thing? or ask the right way? or use the right scripture? This may be because you didn't get a typical acknowledgement.
Most of the time when we make our requests we know God's Word concerning our situation or we can quickly look it up. Then we make our prayer but never get the instant satisfaction of acknowledgement. At least not in the ways we are accustom to be acknowledged.
With a friend we get the reassuring, "Ok" or "I heard that" or "I'm with you." It's kind of annoying if they don't let you know they heard you. With the Lord we merely have his Word.
Merely? Ha! Well His Word is better than a hearty, "You betcha!" So let's think like Jesus thinks and recognize that His Word is more sure than a "you betcha!"
God's Word is His acknowledgement! Can you hear Him? :-)
If anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.
- John 9:31 NKJV
Your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him!
- Matthew 6:8 NLT
Be still in the presence of the LORD, and wait patiently for him to act.
- Psalm 37:7 NLT
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.
- Romans 8:28 NLT
God's Word is His acknowledgement!
When you talk to God do you know He heard you or wonder if He heard you?
Either way, our Father heard you.
Trust Him. Be still and know that He is God.
