BREAKING: HOW CAN YOU TELL IF THE LORD ANSWERED YOUR PRAYER OR IF IT WAS JUST A COINCIDENCE?



Say you talked to Almighty God while you laid across your bed with your eyes closed, praying as hard as you know how for a job, and you get a job offer 15 minutes later, then would you chalk it up to coincidence or to the LORD?


How can you tell if your answered prayer was the LORD coming through for you at your lowest point, or just a happenstancial circumstance, a fluke or luck of the draw?


You probably cannot tell the difference between an answered prayer and a coincidence, unless you believe in the magnificent, majestic, all-conquering power, wisdom and knowledge of THE Almighty God:


Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours (Mark 11:24-New International Version).

I would advise you not to chalk up an answered prayer to anything or anyone other than the LORD: especially if He has guided you through a recent trial or test of your faith.


WHAT IS FAITH?


Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1-King James Version).


But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Heb. 11:6-KJV).


unwavering faith has been a standard of classic Christianity since the early Church members gained a reputation under the Roman Empire for refusing to denounce Jesus, even in the face of death.


In the words of Pittsburgh Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin:


"The standard is the standard."






To me, sometimes though, we may be tempted to not trust God, believing all is lost.


To that I say, "Please read the story of the storm at sea involving Paul" (Acts 27).


Also, Please Notate that His Majesty Almighty God, the Lion of Judah does not tempt anyone at any time.



WHAT IS TEMPTATION?


Temptation has been defined as "the act of testing or trying; trial, enticement, allurement."


What did you do when your own desires or decisions took you through a hard time or times, trials or temptations?


Hopefully, you remembered that the LORD is our rock of salvation who is always there to answer our prayers and ease our burdens:


There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13-KJV).


Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him (James 1:12-KJV).


Some people might wonder or ask, "Why would God tempt His believers?"



THE LORD CAN NEITHER BE TEMPTED

NOR TEMPTS ANYONE


Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed (James 1:13-14-KJV).


Remember that Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness while Jesus was hungry after 40 days and nights of fasting (Matthew 4).


Remember what Jesus told Satan in the wilderness of temptation:


"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve."


Your kind support in helping us to serve the LORD is kindly appreciated.


BELIEVE IN GOD AND TRUST THAT HE ANSWERS THE PRAYERS OF HIS SAINTS.


Long live the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
