God listens to a father’s prayer when trials run rampant
Sometimes in life you seem to meet trouble at every turn. God often uses trials to position you for greater blessings. Even in times of great disappointment, He has your best in mind. He knows how He wants to use disappointments and hardships for your benefit. During these trials, He desires that you see Him as your only source of salvation and blessing. If you are in a physically or emotionally difficult spot right now, refuse to become discouraged. Ask the Lord to reveal His plan for your life. Commit yourself fully to Him, no matter what it costs. God will provide for you in ways that far exceed human understanding.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. And tye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you
Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation. Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: For unto thee will I pray. My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
