Have you ever prayed that God would answer a prayer and He doesn’t answer it the way you asked? I know I have!
One of the prayers our family prayed was for my nephew, Jonathan. Actually, my Mom worried and worried about Jonathan. He has moderate to severe hearing loss and has to wear hearing aids.
Mom being the typical grandmother wanted more than anything for Jonathan to be healed. She worried like any of us would that this might be a stumbling block for Jonathan.
She worried he might be made fun of by other children and she worried he might eventually lose all his hearing.
After my Mom passed away in 2009, we divided up the many Bibles that she used. One thing Mom has written over and over in her Bibles is this prayer. “Heal Jonathan!” (I think I spilled the coffee on the Bible.)
But what happens when healing doesn’t come? Do we still believe in God?
What if by not healing, God is going to do more than we can imagine. What if we trust God….not only when life is good but when life is hard.
What if we trust Him when we can’t see the bigger picture when we can’t see how any good can come out of our situation.
Matthew 19:26 says, but with God all things are possible.
God did not heal Jonathan’s hearing loss, but He has given Jonathan a testimony. A testimony that Jonathan is sharing.
Jonathan is in Nashville living out his dream to be a singer and songwriter. And we believe God is going to do more than what we could ever imagine.
He recently released this song, and it’s doing really, really well. He recorded a video at his home with the whole family so I thought I would share it with you.
What are you going through today that you need to lay at the feet of Jesus??
