Many people, especially Christians, never see the manifestation of God’s promises upon their lives. This has resulted to inordinate beliefs among many. Some even go ahead to seek help from other sources because they think God’s just not so interested in them as to have time to deliver his promises to them. However, it’ll be of great importance to note that God isn’t slack concerning his promises. And the main reason for not having what He promised show up is unbelief. Now, the cure for unbelief is simply knowledge of God’s word. In this article, we’ll give the scriptural references that show the genuineness of God’s promises, and illustrate the immutability of his Word towards our prayer.

First off, it’s important to understand that “… the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us” (2 Corinth. 1:20). This scripture makes us understand that God isn’t a liar; He can’t promise what He’ll never be able to give. So He’s the all-powerful God who’s capable to deliver whatever He says He would.

Moreover, the reason why many of us believe that when we pray God answers isn’t that we think or assume He does, but because He said so in his Word. He said in John 16:14: “… ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” In another place, Peter says in 1 Peter 3:12: “For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers...” These scriptures, when grasped acutely, make you confident and bold to pray, knowing that God will always answer. His Words give us that assurance.

To illustrate, let’s say someone who is in a high position promises to give you a car and he tells you exactly when to visit him to get what he promised. Now, considering what he told you, you’d have faith towards getting a car soon, even though you haven’t seen the car yet. Without a doubt, your faith in getting a car was based on the promise you were given by the person; you believed the word the person gave you.

You see, we get assurance from God’s word. His word is immutable and dependable; you can count on it. You’ll agree with me that God is a God that can only be pleased by faith; you cannot afford to ask him for something without first believing what he said about giving you whatever you ask for (John 14:14). Therefore, if you want to enjoy the best of God, you must line up with his word in believing and accepting that he is very much willing to give whatever you request of Him. This is requisite to getting an answer to your prayer. So put your faith in his word and get whatever you want.

Do you think God does not want to answer all your prayers?
