Psalm 90:1-2 says this:

LORD, YOU have been our dwelling place and our refuge in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth or ever You had formed and given birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting You are God.

If you only meditate on one thing today, meditate on THIS! Before the God of the Bible ever created anything, He was GOD! He always has been, and always will be GOD! So many believers, in making excuses why some prayers seem to not get answered, put the blame on God. "After all, God IS Sovereign" they may say. Meaning what exactly? That God is picking and choosing whose prayers He is answering? NO! That is NOT the TRUTH! Look at 1 John 5:14-15:

14 And this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us. 15 And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him. AMP

God is NOT up in Heaven running some huge "prayer lottery" to see who gets their prayers answered today and who does not! The SOVEREIGN God tells us right here in these two verses HOW to get our prayers answered - EVERY TIME! What are we to do? We are to  make sure that He hears us, because when He does, we HAVE IT! So, how do we get God to hear in the first place? Pray according to His will, which IS His Word! Whatever the Word of God promises to born again believers IS God's forever will for us! There are no shortcuts and laziness will get us nowhere! We MUST find out what belongs to us as His family members, and then expect to receive when we pray! It doesn't really GET any simpler than that! AMEN! Look at Psalm 90:16-17 to see what God is expecting as the result of our prayers being answered!

16 Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children. 17 And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands--yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.

HE gets glory when WE get the goods! AMEN! So, GO FOR IT! Find the treasures hidden in His Word FOR you and dare to believe and agree with HIM! Here is Hillsong with "Desert Song":

Shalom in Him!
