As Christians living in a “microwave society,” we expect God to give us an instant answer in favor of our desires. However, we must remember that even if we do not see instant results, God has instantly heard our prayers. We see an example of this in the book of Daniel. God’s word states, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them (10:12, NIV).” Although, the messenger did not come until later, God heard Daniel the first day!
God will send us the answer at the perfect time. We may think we know what the perfect time is, but we do not have the divine knowledge of our Heavenly Father. We must trust in God to deliver the answer when it is time to do so. A faithful believer can have peace knowing that God has heard their prayer. God’s word in Isaiah says, “Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear (Isaiah 65:24, NIV).” While we are praying to God, God is listening. How awesome is our God that He listens to us right away!
