When God Doesn’t Appear To Answer

This week a man emailed me to ask me a tough question. “I was listening to your message.My wife and I are Christians for many years. We both believe that God will and can prosper us. But we have no more money. I have no job. We have debt. My wife has diabetes. We believe in healing, but we have not seen it. We believe in prosperity, but we are broke. We believe in it, but it is not working.”

This is how I answered him…

God's will is for us to prosper and be in good health (3 John 1:2). But in this world, his will is often thwarted by the enemy, whom we know as Satan.

There are many reasons why this is possible, and it would take a long time for us to go through all of them. And, in fact, I don't know all of them.

What I do know is Jesus said “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John [16:33])

Notice that he did not say that because he had overcome the world we would have no trouble. He said that we WOULD have trouble… and also that he has overcome the world, and we should take heart (not be afraid).

This tells me that Jesus supplies us with the ability to be unafraid even in the face of trouble in this world.

What Are We To Do?

I've admired Jennifer's work for some time now, so when I was asked to be a guest speaker in a private mastermind group, I was honored.

For those who ask for episodes that are “all about copy”, this fits the bill. Jennifer and her group asked some great questions and I think you'll find value in my answers.
