There are some things we request from GOD in prayer that we are not spiritually grown enough to have. Though HE desires to makes us have it, but because HE knows we are not grown enough to have it, HE will not give us, because HE will not give us what will destroy us. No matter how loving a father is, he will not give the key of his car to his three years old son to have a ride, no matter how long or how loud his son ask, even if he cries. He will wait for his son to grow, to be mature enough to drive before giving him his car key to have a ride. In the same vein, GOD will not give you what you are not spiritually matured to have, HE will rather wait for you to grow, to be matured enough to have it. But most people are not patient, they are not willing to wait.
One of my mentors, Pastor Poju Oyemade(Covenant Christian Centre) said; “The difference between the time we pray and the time we receive answer is “PATIENCE”. In some cases, the time we pray is not the time we receive answer, because GOD will not grant any request that will destroy us, because HE loves us so much and do not want to lose us. That is why the scriptures admonish us to imitate those who have received answer to their prayers through PATIENCE~Hebrews 6:12. But this is where most of us fail. We are not willing to be patient, neither are we taking responsibility for our spiritual growth. So, we conclude that GOD is not faithful to prayer and we look for alternative means, which leads to destruction.
