God Answers Prayers

In Exodus 33:12-23, Moses told God that He said, ‘I know you by name, and you have also found grace in My sight,and he asked God to let him see His face; see His Glory so Moses and the people would know God’s way, His grace, and His presence. Then Moses told God, “If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth.” So the LORD said to Moses, “I will also do this thing that you have spoken; for you have found grace in My sight, and I know you by name.”  And he said, “Please, show me Your glory.” Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” And the LORD said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”

Moses wanted to see God’s face; however, that was not possible at that time. Fast forward 1500 years to Matthew 17:1-3 to the day Jesus took Peter, James, and John his brother, and led them up on a high mountain by themselves; and He was transfigured before them. Jesus’ face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light. And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them, talking with Him.”

Now is the time to evaluate your faith!  Do you have faith to stand and believe for 1500 years? We know the answer to that question!!  Some people can’t believe for a day while others stand in faith for years to see answers to their prayers.  As you think about Moses’ desire to see God’s face being fulfilled when he looked into the face of Jesus, know that it doesn’t matter how long it takes for the answer of your prayer to manifest – God will answer your prayer.

Keep believing; keep confessing the answer to your situation; and watch God bring a manifestation of what you are praying and asking Him for.  It will surely come to pass if you don’t faint, grow weary or give up!
