2 Chronicles 7:1 – 7 When Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.
We live in a time when we expect things “right now”. Not too long ago, it might take a piece of mail a week to be delivered to us. More recently, it was improved to “next day delivery”. Now, we actually have “same day delivery” if you order before a certain time of the day. We expect things “right now”, but why don’t we expect the same with our prayer life?
In today’s scripture we have a picture of “fire came down from heaven” after Solomon had finished praying. This image spoke to me of God’s response to our prayers. Just like “fire came down from heaven”, the Lord answers our prayers before we are even done asking. No, the message might not be delivered to us right away, but take comfort that every prayer you have ever prayed has already been answered by the Lord. In His time and in His plan we will see those answers in our lives.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
