God Never Fails

God Never Fails

Sometimes it seems as if God doesn’t hear our prayers.


Sometimes it seems that He’s far away, distant, and unaware.


But just because God doesn’t answer our prayers in the way we think He should, doesn’t mean He doesn’t care and isn’t moving in our lives. God answers every one our prayers, often in ways far better and wiser than we could have dreamt up.

Sometimes in the silence and in the aftermath of prayers that seem unanswered, it can be faith building to remember all the times past that God has provided us with the answers we look for.


God said through Isaiah,

“Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.”


So today’s post are two excerpts, examples of answered prayers, from Lee Strobel’s book, The Case for Miracles.


“Cambridge University professor John Polkinghorne, one of the world’s foremost scholars on the intersection of science and faith, provides the account of a woman whose left leg was paralyzed in an injury. Doctors gave up trying to treat her, saying she would be an invalid for life. In 1980, she reluctantly agreed to prayer from an Anglican priest. Though she had no expectation of healing, she had a vision in which she was commanded to rise and walk. Said, Polkinghorne, who has doctorates in both science and theology, ‘From that moment, she was able to walk, jump, and bend down, completely without pain.’”


“University professor Robert Larmer reports that Mary Ellen Fitch was hospitalized with hepatitis B. She was turning yellow; her abdomen bulged with her swollen liver. She was told she would remain in the hospital for months. After a week though, she had a deep experience with God and committed her condition to him. The next morning, her blood tests were normal. Bewildered, doctors repeatedly tested her, with the same results. Years have now passed, and she remains healed.”



God reigns over the affairs of men. He has the hairs of our heads numbered, and watches the sparrows in the sky. Even when it seems that all else is failing, He never fails.
