The Answer Is Hidden In Plain Sight!
How often I have found this to be true. I can tell you many testimonies of God interrupting my schedule just so that He could put me in the right place at the right time. Maybe someone needed a prayer. Other times it's been a practical need. But God made sure to get me where I needed to be at the right time. Sometimes He wants us to have a conversation with someone in order to reveal more of His plan. Rest assured, whatever your need, whatever you have been praying for is often found right under your nose!
Often the answer is hidden in plain sight but people can be blind to it. It's like looking for something you lost and you keep looking right past it when it's sitting right there on the counter in plain sight. Ever done that? Perhaps it is because a person has not had a response of faith, or perhaps they wanted the answer to come in a different way. Sometimes the answer is hidden until a set time when God suddenly allows people to have their eyes opened, and sometimes we must ask for God to open our eyes and show us the answer. We learn to accept the answer that God gives, whether or not it is according to our personal preferences. You may feel that you have not yet received an answer, but just because you feel that you haven’t received an answer doesn’t mean the answer hasn’t been sent. It might mean you haven’t listened hard enough.
Help me to have the response of faith. Forgive me if I have not been paying attention and you have already sent answers to my prayers. Right now I reject and refuse all unbelief, judgments, opinions and resistance to the answer to my prayers. I believe by faith that in as much as I am an answer for others that have a need, the answer to my prayer is also made available to me in others. Please open my eyes to recognize the answer that is right in front of me. Give me eyes to see how I can be the answer for others, too. Please give me a heart that is willing to accept Your answer, and respond in faith to whatever you show me. I don’t want to miss the time of my visitation! I know you work through human vessels, Lord, so please highlight the ones in which You want me to pay attention. Open my ears to hear the message that is communicated. You have an answer that I need to receive, so help me to receive it. I thank You for adjusting my heart in whatever way is needed so that I can respond in faith to the answer that You have sent. In Jesus name, amen.
