GOD IS NOT DEAF!!!
Ade tells himself, “God is deaf! I just completed a 21-days prayer and fasting. I have also waited for one month for the answer to my prayers. It still did not come through.” Ade then decides to embark on a 42-day prayer and fasting since God didn’t hear him during the 21days so he thought that maybe if he doubles it, God will hear!
Have you ever been in Mr. Ade’s shoes? Have you ever been praying and fasting and practicing all the kingdom activities but yet it seems as though God is deaf? But does He actually hear?
When we call God “Omnipresent”- it means He is everywhere at all times.
When we call God “Omnipotent”– it means He has all the power both in Heaven and Earth.
When we call God “Omniscience”– it means He knows all things.
To think of it, how would a person who created the whole world not be Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscience? Many times, people do not take time out to think about this God. We just imagine that if we press one or two spiritual buttons then we are sure to get what we want.
Jeremiah 1:5- “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee…” What does it means to know? God knew you before He even formed you. That’s why He knows everything about you- right from the beginning of your life to the end. God deals with everyone individually. Someone might say that a person gave a testimony of how he prayed and fasted for a job for 70days and got it, so I would do the same. Have you ever considered that the way God designed that person’s life is different from the way He designed yours?
Mathew 6:7- “And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions like the pagans for they think they will be heard because of their many words”. The Bible urges us to walk by faith and not by sight. As long as you are walking in the fear and love of God, then all things are working for your good. You do not need to keep repeating a particular prayer point for days, months and years. God heard you the first time you told Him. If He wanted to do it there and then, He would have done it. Be patient and submit to His time and purpose for your life.

God is not deaf that He cannot hear your prayers. He knows you and sees ahead of you. If what you are asking for is not yet in His agenda for the time being, then you may not receive it. He created the ears, so He cannot be deaf. That thing you continually pray about would be delivered at the right time. “For the vision is for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak and not lie; though it tarries, wait for it because it will surely come…”- Habakkuk 2:3.
When the time comes for your deliverance, it will happen!
When the time comes for your miracle job, it will happen!
When the time comes for your marriage, it will happen!
When the time comes for whatever you are asking for, it will surely happen!
Take your requests to God and hold your peace, He will cause all things to work together for your good. Just take a quick look back at your life. Have you ever been chasing a particular thing for so long that when you finally get it, you realize that if you had gotten it much earlier, it would not have been advantageous?
God loves you. Believe that! God hears you. Believe that! Trust Him to take care of you. He did not love you because of anything you did. So take a deep breath, calm down, believe and relax in that assurance.
God bless you!
