What does it really take to see our prayers answered? Without a doubt we have all seen those times when (to our surprise!) God just moves quickly and miraculously, and we know He has heard our request. However, there are other times when it just seems like nothing is happening and we just keep bumping into the same old problem.
I have found that this concept of “renewing our minds” is a major key to seeing answers to many of these issues. Often the main reason we are having a problem is because we are out of alignment with God’s way of doing something, and we are simply reaping what we are sowing.
This could relate to anything from marriage issues, to farming, to running a country! Maybe you don’t really need a miracle; maybe you just need to see from a different perspective. In other words, we could be angry and asking God why He doesn’t do something, and He could be asking us the same question.
