Why Prayers Go Unanswered

5 Aug

Over the years from my personal observations as a pastor I have come to realise that some people seem like they really don’t want to really get free and be an overcomer. The enemy of their souls has got them so confused and so programmed in sinful toxic thinking they have a hard time sorting out which path to follow to find freedom. They don’t seem to want to discipline themselves to make right choices; as they are so programmed in their thought life that they fall easily into the devils traps, so they stay in their rebellion and keep fellowshipping with devils. Not fully understanding the finished work of the Cross of Jesus/Yeshua or that God won’t share you with devils. 1 Corinthians 10:20, “But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”
Seems that some people just give excuses trying to validate and justify why they are depressed and living in such a state. Living defeated and not understanding why their prayers go unanswered. Allowing the enemy of their soul to torment them because they often can’t see they are entertaining the spirit of self-pity and that they are fellowshipping with devils by doing so. In our Guide Book to the Supernatural we read in places like Jeremiah 5:25,”Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.”

We read in Psalm 66:18,”If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:”
Isaiah 59:1,”Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: 2But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. 3For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.”
The things that come out of your heart and speak through your mouth can greatly hinder your life and prayers. Neurologically speaking, your heart is ultra-sensitive to what you think and feel – your thoughts directly affect the state of your heart. Keeping in mind you control your brain, your brain does not control you.
We read in Luke 6:45 “A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh.” If you want to know what your life will be like next year listen to what words are coming out of your mouth today.
Now you must understand you can’t really change people, you can encourage them, but you can’t change them unless they willingly surrender to the Lord Jesus.
You can speak faith filled words over them, educated them and pray for them and bless them. Your faith can even trump their doubt and unbelief and the Lord can perform miracles in their lives. But at the end of the day you can not make them do what is right. When you don’t do what is right you end up doing what is wrong by default. I dare say which is still a form of rebellion and that is a serious spiritual matter. For the Word of God shall not change but it shall change you as you apply it in your life. James 1:22 “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.”
You can’t make anyone choose blessings.
Many people suffer because they are stuck in some secret sin, but it’s not a secret to God who loves you and wants to help you, if you will just call on Him. God sees everything.
Most people sin in a private moment not understanding its all being recorded and watched in heaven. That we are tested here on earth to see if will we obey the Lord or not.
If we won’t obey here on earth how will we obey in Heaven?
It did not work out so well for all those angels who followed Satan’s rebellion and fell eternally.
Jeremiah 33:3,” Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.”
As you get into the Word of God it changes you forever. It takes you away from ungodly thinking and wrong behaviours like addictions and foul language and will replace that by tearing down the strongholds the enemy has built up in your mind. By washing you clean from the filth of toxic thinking and renewing your mind to promises of God which will change you and bring you into a place of righteousness and supernatural peace before the Lord.
After all the Lord Jesus said in places like John 14:27,”Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
When you truly thank the Lord He is listening, and when you praise His Holy name He is with you. For the Lord inhabits the praises of his people. When you truly worship the Lord miracles and blessings happen.
John 4:24,”God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
For example we read in Acts 16 how Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God in prison after being beaten and chained in there and the Lord provided a miracle release for them. In other words they truly worshipped the Lord.
The Lord wants to bless you now as you come into agreement with His almighty Word.
Mark 11:24,” Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Often people say, show me and I will believe you, and clearly the Lord Jesus/Yeshua is saying believe and He will show you!
I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love. PASTOR CASPAR – Pastor, Author, Musician, Artist, Researcher, Lecturer,
