All right, which way will it be? Shall we listen to men, or shall we listen to God? That’s easy. We will listen to God because His witness is greater than men’s witness. God’s witness or God’s word says “that if we ask anything according to His will He hears us… And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” (1 John 5:14-15)
Now if you don not know, that does not apply to you. Some people wonder why God is not answering their prayers. It could be that it is not a prayer of belief. It is a hope prayer. They just kind of threw something out there and hoped that something good would happen. Thank God for His mercy, however. There are times that the mercy of God will get involved in your life. The situation turned out for your good, but you could not duplicate it if you wanted to, because you don’t know how it was done. It was God’s mercy.
God is merciful. But He requires that we grow up in Him. There are some things we have to know. And there is a voice, the voice of the word of God, we must listen to. “If we know that he hears us whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.” (1 John 5:15)
