Hebrews 10:36

"You need to persevere so that when you have done the
will of God, you will receive what he has promised."

"For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done
the will of God, ye might receive the promise." (KJV)

If we do not see the Lord answering our prayers, it is not
because He does not heart us or because He does not
care. It is most likely because we are sitting passively
by as a spectator waiting for the show to begin. The
Word tells us to: listen; walk; pray; be mindful; be
ready; put on; throw aside; rejoice; forgive; keep
the faith. And there are many more things we are
instructed to do as followers of Christ. If we are
doing these things He is telling us to do, we will
always see and know that He is answering our

Heavenly Father, so many times we overlook what You
are doing in answer to our prayers. We sit back and
expect You to respond to our needs without doing
those things we ought to be doing. Forgive us, Lord,
for our neglect and help us to be actively working
out our salvation. Help us to understand that it is in
our obedience that we grow and become more aware
of Your presence and Your working. In Jesus' name.
