Answered Prayer: The Will Of God

It Is Gods Will to Answer Every Prayer

Years ago, I found myself having trouble believing that God would honor His word. I did not trust what God had said. This was a major struggle for me in the fact that I couldn’t get prayers answered and I wasn’t pleasing God. The end of this dilemma came when He spoke to me oh so softly. He asked me if I considered myself a man of my word. My reply was” Lord, I do everything possible to keep my word. I don’t like empty promises and I try not to make them.” His reply was “Do you think I am inferior to you when it comes to keeping My word?” That statement shook me. Then the Lord revealed to me why I was having trouble believing His word. Simply this; I was not hearing and meditating on His word. I learned that Gods word was Gods will and everything His word said was a revelation of His will on that subject. I came up with this saying; His word is His will and His will is His word; they are one and the same and they cannot be changed!Num 23:19 CEV God is no mere human! He doesn’t tell lies or change his mind. God always keeps his promises. 

 Psa 89:34 CEV “I won’t break my agreement or go back on my word. 

Heb 6:18 CEV God cannot tell lies! And so his promises and vows are two things that can never be changed………..

As I began to study the word of God I found that there are a lot of things His word says and doesn’t say. For instant I can’t find where it says no or wait when it comes to answered prayer. I can’t find where it says that God will no put more on you than you can bear. I have over 30+ bible translations and I can’t find these statements in any. I did find that God had already answered our prayer with a Yes when they were based on His word. 2Co 1:20 WNT For all the promises of God, whatever their number, have their confirmation in Him; and for this reason through Him also our “Amen” acknowledges their truth and promotes the glory of God through our faith. 

 God has-promised to answer every prayer of His children who pray in harmony with His Word. To prove this note the following passages in the Bible: 

Matt. 7:7-11 “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent? . If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?”  

 

  Matt. 21:21-22 “Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain. Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. . . And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive”

Mark 11:22-24 “And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”  

 
John 15:7, 16 “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. . . Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”

John 16:23-26 “And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”

 James 1:5-8 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith ‘ nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
 
1 John 3:20-22; “For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight”
 
1 John 5:14-15 “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
 

 

Certainty of answered prayer is also expressed in the Old Testament:

Ps.34:15-17 “The eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his ears are open unto their cry. The righteous cry, and the Lord heareth, and delivereth them out of ALL their troubles”
 
Ps.37.4-5 “Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.
 
Ps.91:15 “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him”
 
Ps.84:11 “No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly”
F. Dake said “what could be clearer than these passages to prove that it is the will of God to grant the answer to every prayer? Could it be possible that God said things in these passages that He did not mean? Shall we further question the will of God in this matter or shall we believe the simple promises which express the will of God concerning prayer? Think of it! Anything and everything that one wants he can have through prayer if he will but ask in faith, nothing wavering! This is the way to pray right. This is the requirement of God and the only thing He requires of His children. Of course, the sin business must be finished before one can be a child of God and before one can pray the right way.”
