The Lord of armies says this: “Consider your ways! Go up to the mountains, bring wood, and rebuild the temple, that I may be pleased with it and be honored,” says the Lord. “You start an ambitious project, but behold, it comes to little; when you bring it home, I blow it away. Why?” declares the Lord of armies. “It is because of My house which remains desolate, while each of you runs to his own house. Therefore, because of you the sky has withheld its dew, and the earth has withheld its produce. And I called for a drought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on mankind, on cattle, and on all the products of the labor of your hands.”
You may pray and pray and wonder about the response from God, what we read in Haggai might be a possibility. We also read in Daniel about the Spiritual Warfare that accompanied the prayers of Daniel.
Satan does NOT want our faith bolstered by God's answers to our prayers.
Lastly we are directed to pray without ceasing in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NASB "Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus."
God's will is our sanctification, God's will is in our prayers to God. God's will is in our giving thanks to God.
We are to bear one another's burdens to fulfill the law of Christ. This too is God's will for us.
What are you doing in regards to cultivating a growing prayer life that reflects a right relationship with Jesus?
