A MUST READ – A MAJOR HINDRANCE TO ANSWERED PRAYER
After a Sunday morning church service recently, I approached a lady and asked how she was. She replied, “I’m still waiting for my miracle”. “And what are you believing God for?” I asked. “I want to not just know that God loves me, I want to feel His love.” I saw in the Spirit written over her forehead the word, ‘Desensitized’. This article is what I believe will help this lady and you, if you struggle to get answers to your prayers.
The Word of God assures you and me that when we became children of God, we become free from condemnation! “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1
Being free from condemnation you and I are assured of answers to our prayers. “Beloved, if your heart does not condemn you, you have confidence before God; and whatever you ask, you receive from him, because you keep his commandments and do what pleases him.” 1 John 3:21-22
We’ll have faith and confidence in God when our hearts do not condemn, criticize or judge us, (making us feel guilty and not good enough), but instead we believe that we are loved and accepted by God and that he wants to answer our prayers.
A DOWNWARD SPIRAL WHEN YOU WALK IN THE FLESH AND NOT IN THE SPIRIT
Feeling guilty for past sins and/or listening to negative self-talk, can drive you to seek acceptance and affirmation from others and so cause you to get caught up in a cycle of fear of rejection and failure. Stress and striving to attain, rather than obtaining what Jesus has done for you, will cause your heart to become hardened and desensitized.
Can I have a hard, desensitized heart? The disciples walked with Jesus, saw him perform miracles, in fact, in Mark chapter six we read that Jesus sent them out with authority to minister deliverance and healing. Now in Mark chapter eight, Jesus is suggesting that they have a hard heart that is keeping them from understanding, seeing, hearing and remembering.
Jesus said to them, “Why are you arguing about having no bread? Do you still not see or understand? Have your hearts been hardened? Though you have eyes, don’t you see? And though you have ears, can’t you hear? Don’t you remember?” Mark 8:17-18
Let’s examine our hearts!
A FREE NON-CONDEMNING HEART
When you are worshiping God, do you sense the anointing of God flowing through you and over you, or do you just know he is present by faith?
A person who has a free non-condemning heart can more readily sense God’s presence during worship.
A person who feels condemned often only believes God is present. “These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught.” Isaiah 29:13 NIV
Do you feel God’s love flowing in and through you or do you just receive it in your mind by faith?
A person who has a free non-condemning heart knows that God loves and accepts them and can feel His love flowing in and through them.
Those with a condemning heart find sensing and feeling God’s love difficult, making it harder to love God, themselves and others. “So that nothing will hinder your prayers...Now, this is the goal: to live in harmony with one another and demonstrate affectionate love, sympathy and kindness toward other believers. Let humility describe who you are as you dearly love one another.” 1 Peter 3:8 TPT
Do you feel unworthy? Do you feel that your prayers will not be good enough?
A person with a free non-condemning heart can find it easier to receive from God.
A person with a condemning heart will often struggle to receive God’s love and forgiveness. It will prevent you from believing all the wonderful things the Bible says about you. “Ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:6-9 ESV.
When you read the Bible, does it excite you? Do words leap with meaning off the page at times? Or does the Bible seem dry at times? Do you find it hard to remember the Word of God?
A free non-condemning heart enables you to draw life and strength from God’s Word and makes it easier to remember.
Those who feel they need to perform to get God’s acceptance, find that devotions and the Word can run dry and they struggle to remember God’s Word. “They are darkened in their understanding; alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart.” Ephesians 4:18, Mark 8:17-18
Do you find it hard to hear from God? Do you get spiritual dreams and visions?
A free non-condemning heart enables you to hear from the Lord and have dreams and visions.
Those with a desensitized, hardened heart can find listening and seeing in the Spirit more difficult. “The hearts of these people are hardened, and their ears cannot hear, and they have closed their eyes--so their eyes cannot see, and their ears cannot hear, and their hearts cannot understand, and they cannot turn to me and let me heal them.” Matthew 13:15
Do you find it hard to believe God to meet your needs? Do you call on God only in emergencies?
A free non-condemning heart enables you to have faith in God to work powerfully in the supernatural.
Those with a hardened, desensitized heart tend to depend on the natural more. “Afterward He appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at the table; and He reproached them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who had seen Him after He had risen.” Mark 16:14
Now that you have examined your heart, you will probably feel, like myself, the need for some spiritual heart medicine! Here it is:
1. REPENT AND CHOOSE NOT TO LISTEN to your negative self-talk (the enemy’s lies), for you are free from condemnation!
2. RECEIVE BY FAITH YOUR NEW HEART, free from condemnation: “I'm going to give you a new heart, and I'm going to give you a new spirit within all of your deepest parts. I'll remove that rock-hard heart of yours and replace it with one that's sensitive to me.” Ezekiel 36:26
3. RELY ON THE HOLY SPIRIT - Choose to live daily in the power of God, depend on, and please God in all you do, free from condemnation! Romans 8:1
4. REST IN GOD’S PROMISE to you: “Beloved, if your heart does not condemn you, you have confidence before God; and whatever you ask, you receive from him..” 1 John 3:21 Oh, the goodness of God!
