Our God answers prayers
  • Hebrews 11:6 we must expect god to ansewr all our prayers
  • We spoke about the power of expectation last wednesday
  • The woman in luke 18 refused to give up
  • Luke 18:1-14
  • 1 ¶  and he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
  • 2  saying, there was in a city a judge, which feared not god, neither regarded man:
  • 3  and there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, avenge me of mine adversary.
  • 4  and he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, though i fear not god, nor regard man;
  • 5  yet because this widow troubleth me, i will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.
  • 6  and the lord said, hear what the unjust judge saith.
  • 7  and shall not god avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
  • 8  i tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
  • 9 ¶  and he spake this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:
  • 10  two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a pharisee, and the other a publican.
  • 11  the pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, god, i thank thee, that i am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
  • 12  i fast twice in the week, i give tithes of all that i possess.
  • 13  and the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, god be merciful to me a sinner.
  • 14  i tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
  • God is here to avenge us in these 3 days of waiting on him
  • God is a righteous judge and his promise to us in 2018 is to avenge us
  • We just need to believe him
  • What does it mean to avenge ?
  • It means to punish all that have harmed us and give us justice
  • It means to vindicate you and prove you right
  • It means to stop the mockery,laughter and insult of your enemies
  • Jeremiah was a prophet that endured much insult and persecution
  • Now lets read one of his prayers in jeremiah 17:14-18
  •   heal me, o lord, and i shall be healed; save me, and i shall be saved: for thou art my praise.
  • 15  behold, they say unto me, where is the word of the lord? Let it come now.
  • 16  as for me, i have not hastened from being a pastor to follow thee: neither have i desired the woeful day; thou knowest: that which came out of my lips was right before thee.
  • 17  be not a terror unto me: thou art my hope in the day of evil.
  • 18  let them be confounded that persecute me, but let not me be confounded: let them be dismayed, but let not me be dismayed: bring upon them the day of evil, and destroy them with double destruction.
  • God will answer all prayers even for his own names sake
  • He does not want the mockers to keep asking where is your god?
  • Besides he prmises to answer all prayers john14:12-14
  • Verily, verily, i say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that i do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because i go unto my father.
  • 13  and whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will i do, that the father may be glorified in the son.
  • 14  if ye shall ask any thing in my name, i will do it.
  • The lord repeats this promise in mathew 7:7-11
  • 7 ¶  ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
  • 8  for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
  • 9  or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
  • 10  or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
  • 11  if ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
  • In numbers 23:19 balam says god is not a man that he should lie
  • In this season god wants to work in the families
  • Acts 10
