“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”Ephesians 3:20–21.
Glory to God because He doesn’t answer prayers according to our wishes or how we present our desires and needs to Him. He answers according to the power that works in us.
Daniel and his colleagues got on a verge of a fiasco when it was taught that all the wise men would be annihilated on failure to interpret Nebuchadnezzar’s dream. Instead of worry, they chose to seek God’s mercy because they had faith in their God.
“Then Daniel went to his house, and made the decision known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions, that they might seek mercies from the God of heaven concerning this secret, so that Daniel and his companions might not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. Then the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision. So Daniel blessed the God of heaven.”Daniel 2:17–19.
These scriptures confirm that the wisdom of the heavenly Kingdom far surpasses that of the earthly kingdom. When we seek God’s wisdom (not man’s) amid dilemma, He creates a way of escape. God won’t allow those who seek His mercies to perish with those who seek earthly wisdom.
“For the Wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness.””1 Corinthians 3:19.
Oftentimes, God seems to be silent or to have delayed, and we might lose hope. Amazingly, it is in that moment when He answers in the most extraordinary, supernatural and exciting manner.
It is better to keep on waiting on God in faith, regardless of the nature of the circumstances than to lose hope. Amen.
