We become anxious, impatient and sometimes even a little frustrated when things don't happen when we think they should. I think everyone either has or will at some point experience the curiosity as to why God seems to take "so long" in answering our prayers or fulfilling His promises.
When our eyes are not on Christ, we believe that standard we're seeking is man's concepts and ideas. If you have this problem, do not fear my friend. God knew this would happen, but He noted very clearly in His word that any person who compares their self to another is not wise.
Prayer is a beautiful, powerful, life changing experience. It is essential to each of our daily walks to be established at the top of the morning in prayer, throughout the day and at the end of each night.
